Yes it could have. Improper line pressure can kill a transmission in as little as a few miles. This is one of the reasons I recommend a 1976 or newer Quadrajet and the proper GM bracket for the cables. It ensures that the geometry is right without the expensive correction kits. BTW, I have run an Edelbrock 600 on my 355 before, and yes it does screw up the TV cable geometry. My TH 200 4R is out to lunch now (was a little bad before the Edelbrock carb) and will soon be replaced by a T-5 5 speed manual swap.
