The old grille guard looks like a "Smash Hit" guard. Probably rescued from a 40'S or 50's truck.

Hey, let the new guy make up his own mind to get a Holley. He'll come around, give him time.

Jonathon, Welcome from Pennsylvania!
Thank you very much, I appreciate it!

I know nothing about carbs really, I only took one apart before, and that was a Quadrajet.

Hydroboost is a beast on it, that thing'll lock up all four wheel if you hit the brakes too hard. lol

A mess for sure. Chock full of crazy drivers too.
Welcome!
And don't EVER complain about DFW drivers! LOL
DFW is an absolute dream to navigate, both the highways and drivers, compared to this corner of the country.

Perhaps I'm complaining too much, you're right. Thank you! I'm glad to be here.

Yep, just had to throw that out there as I seen from the pics he has what appears to be an edelbroke so it's only a matter of time before he'll be asking how to get it going correctly!!! But not near as quickly as if he had a quadrajunk!!!!! LOL
