I use 60 in/lbs. Much more than that and you risk distorting the throttle body which can bind the shafts and throttle platesThey say to only tighten to 50-60in/lbs which isn't much. I do want to crank down more. I don't think I'll warp the flange unless I get ugly on it. But since the spacer is so squishy I think it can take more.
Thanks, Kip. I'm sure it does, so I'll give it a shot. I know I"m well past that. As Dave said, the mushy spacer provided with the carb requires more force than that. I'm not so tight I'm bending the flange. Just wanted a good seal.Sorry Dave, I was responding to Clay, he wondered if his wrench would measure as low as 60 in/lbs. I wondered if he had one that would read 5 ft/lbs as that would be the equivalent of 60 in/lbs. kip
That is the one benefit of the Summit, if you do want to change the jets you can do it wet. I never understood why Holley made the float bowls the way they did. Better chance of leaking and if you do want to make a change on the car you've got a mess.Even though I’m currently running a Holley I much prefer the simplicity of the rod and spring setup. Changes take minutes and you don’t end up with gas everywhere.
I agree and feel like the summit is the best of both worlds. Too bad about the high idle problem some folks have.That is the one benefit of the Summit, if you do want to change the jets you can do it wet.

Color me stupid: wouldn't rough areas increase turbulence and improve mixture?I’ve run both on my car. I would say the Summit seemed to feel slightly better if I had to pick something out between them but not earth shattering. I went back to the Edelbrock only because I have a tuning kit for it. The Summit I forget either was rich or lean at part throttle and a jet kit was like $100. What I was disappointed by theSummit is a lot of rough areas inside the boosters that were not deburred. I feel there’s a lot of room for improvement. Over all the Edelbrock is made and finished much nicer.
