    hey all, i am in need of suggestions for carburetors on a 59 283, here are the specs on the motor..
    59 block, punched out 60 over
    power pack heads 60cc 1.72/1.5 running aproximately 9.5-1 compression
    comp cams 262XE 0.462 in/0.469 ex
    msd streetfire distributor

    I am looking at a holley 570/600.. do you think that's too much CFM for a relatively mild street motor? the forums I read say to stick to 500 cfm for a 283. thanks for lookin!

    What trans, what rear gears?
     
  3. A Edelbrock 500 or 600 holley would work just fine, properly tuned . IMO. the holley will deliver more performance .

    I have a very similar 283, bored .60 over, cam, etc.
    I run a 500 Edelbrock and it is very spunky...
    You have a great little engine there :)

    If you don't like tuning put a Holley #1850 electric choke on it. If you like to get the most out of it put a Holley 600 double pumper on it and tune for best overall performance. Notice I didn't say anything about an Eddy!

    The problem with a '64 P/U is when you open the hood it's a LOOOOOOOng way down to the motor! You need an induction system that will fill the void, maybe a 471 blower or Injection if money is no object! Or Trips like this (4 sale!) will help take up some real-estate.................................
