Carb issues

Hello this is my first post.....what I've got is a 1962 Falcon 2 door post with a D0VE 429, stock rebuild, 750 cfm Holley, single feed, vacuum secondaries, Distributor is a later model with Ford electrons and has been recurved. When I get on the gas at half throttle if pulls fine till about 3000 rpm and then starts to miss, I think it seem to run pretty rich and was wondering if anyone can give me an idea what jets I should be running or does it sound more like an ignition problem. Any help would be appreciated

Re: Carb issues

check your vacuum advance, or your timing could be too far advanced
