So my poor temporary Olds 350 didn't stand a chance in surviving. Not only did I have an issue with the Mallory distributor, now replaced with a HEI, I had an issue with the supply to the distributor. The connection came apart, so I upgraded to a bigger gauge wire and soldered the connection, 12 volts at the distributor. I thought the ignition was the flooding issue over half throttle, nope. Something is up with this Everyday Performance tuned and rebuilt Qjet,17058250, a 78 Oldsmobile 403 carb. It has been used for at least 5 years and has worked well other than choke linkage issues which required replacement to fix. I talked to Cliff Ruggles and ordered a SR kit which comes with a float, the secondary air door cam and spring. I also ordered his better 44 primary rods, he knew the carb came with 73 jets. I also ordered a power piston spring from Cliff. I know Ken used different primary rods than the factory 44K rods since I put 72 jets in it, that makes sense. I made the APT slotted and adjustable with a removable plug in the air horn before I sent it to him. I idled so much better when it came back. Cliff Ruggles had nothing good to say about carbs he saw built by Everyday Performance, which I was surprised by. He said expect a ball point on spring under the power piston and the rod hangers severely bent and the float way off. Ken told me he rebushed the secondary throttle shafts, I will do the primary throttle shafts since Cliff's kit came with enough to do two carbs. I am really curious to open this carb now, maybe Cliff got a bad one?
