    71 scamp with a 360. Has an edlebrock carb. Runs really well idles great but has a bog or hesitation when you give it wide open throttle for the first few seconds. I don't know enough for me to mess with it myself.

    This video from UTG explains an off throttle hesitation in simple terms.

    Just be extra careful you don't lose the small clip that holds the rod on!!

    I didn't know Allstate carburetor was still around! I used them many many times going back 20 years though. Thanks for that video, seems like a good place to start but it runs so well other then that wide open hesitation I would be afraid to mess anything up. I think this time time I may send it to a pro and and then in the future hopefully be brave enough to tackle stuff like that on my own.
