    SUs Or Holley

    Am I missing the point here? you either want performance OR economy you cant have both with a v8 Performance wise get the holley carb as its easier to set up and as it closely copies the rochester that was on the 216 Buick to begin with --Rover wanted supply but had contract problems with SU...

    V8 Tickover troubles

    Why add additive to 99 octain ? no point is there ? the 3500s I work on run fine on straight unleaded -as far as i can tell anyway--if you had 11-2 compression ratio like mine then could understand additive and timing is TDC or 6 deg BDC maybe a degree either--cant remember exact figure
