    So I had recently gotten a 800 cfm. Edelbrock Performer Carb. for my 1970 340 Duster (Part Number 1413). Installing was straight forward and pretty simple. However, I ran into a huge problem with what's happening on startup and idle. For whatever reason, I am idling excessively high.
    ≈Here are some points so far with what I got from toying around:
    ≈As soon as the engine cranks over, the choke immediately opens all the way.
    ≈By controlling the choke, I am able to bring the idle down and stop the engine from revving. However if the choke is not feathered occasionally then the engine dies out.
    ≈The plug in the back is in, plugs are hooked up correctly, wiring is connected correctly, and throttle cable is hooked correctly with the Chrysler adapter.
    ≈Engine does sound like it's running rough.

    I'm not too sure where the problem could be, and I have not really done any carb. work before this point. Any help would be extremely useful! I'll upload some pictures when I get home from work today for anyone who'd like to see them.

    Did u get the carb installed properly as in does the butterflies open fully and close by hand with the engine off, not hanging up on the gasket. Choke should not fully open when it first starts. Maybe the choke linkage is keeping the carb open too far to idle down. Kkm
