Carefully place the Edelbrock carb on a flat and solid surface.

Then drop something very heavy on it repeatably until it is rendered into its basic components.

Then mount those parts on a suitable plaque so it can be properly displayed on your "wall of shame" as the POS that it is.

Make no mistake that you will be saving the world from a POS, it is not possible to make that carb work over any variety of conditions found in normal street operation.

Wasn't that the Lectron 45 yeard ago, then Edmonston, with a tapered and radially asymmetrical needle? Change the needle entirely, then move it up & down, and then rotate it?

they were not very good carbs
i do not think it to be an electron
if i am not mistaken, they did make a model specific for hd under a diff name
a jpeg would be nice
perhaps the hippysmack has some light to shed
awwwww! the quick silver
meaning how quick they drained the silver out of your pocket

I really like the “drop something heavy on it repeatedly” part, myself. It’s so very cro magnon - bash with rock until I achieve result.
