I HATE THOSE DAMN VV CARBS! I have an 85 with the 351 H.O. 4bbl holley. Isn't that the variable venturi? This carb has been a major achilles' heel to this truck as long as it has been in my family. It can't be adjusted and makes the Bronco run terrible.
I would like to swap it, but MA emissions laws prevent that I think.
Sometimes if am driving it and a traffic light turns yellow, making me floor it to make the light, the engine almost seems to cut out for a second, and then runs fine afterwards. Is this a problem with the carb? If I were to toss an Edelbrock or something on there, would it be easily noticed by inspection stations? Would my stock air cleaner fit over it to hide it? I was wondering if anyone else has done this.. BTW this carb has been rebuilt/replaced several times.
