Fired up my new roller 302 today, yippie!! I haven't driven it (except up and down the driveway). It's real shakey at idle and when I put it in gear (just in gear, not talking about driving) it falls on it's face, the rpms really come down, I have to bump the throttle up a bit. Above idle (in gear or not) it's very smooth and sounds good. Here's some vitals:
Edelbrock 289 Perfomer intake
Edelbrock 1406 carb
Duraspark II dizzy and box, I have it set at 15*BTDC right now
Tri-Y headers, no exhaust system yet (that's the very next thing scheduled)
I tried various idle mixture settings, but to no avail.
My driveway's long enough to tell that she'll take off o.k., but this idle stinks. Any suggestings, tips, maybe I'm overlooking something obivious.
