Ahhhh that made sense! I think I read somewhere that someone had to reject. So that probably stuck in my brain.

I keep debating on the whole Clifford package, or going the other route and getting an offy intake, 390, and Langdon splits.

The Clifford package only has a 2 barrel. So it's iffy.

I did watch a guy on YouTube putting a Holley on a chevy 250 like mine, and it appeared the setting up of the linkage was a bit dreadful,
But I guess that's part of the journey.
