Carby jets for 350 Chev

Hey guys, just helpped a mate replace his 350 chev. The previous engine was worked a little, unsure of exactly what as he bought it that way but it did have a reasonable cam in it. The new engine is pretty much standard. It runs a 600 Holley with No.66 jets. What jets should a standard 350 Chev have? I think it may be running a bit rich. Any advice is greatly appreciated.
Cheers,
Bruce.

backfire donk in commodore - why?

hey guys dont u think that Holden would have thought that a starfire motor would go like [Naughty Pottyword] in a VC / VH commodore, u know with the early commies being heavy bastards and the toranas considerably lighter which the engine was taken from,and they went [Naughty Pottyword] enough in a torrie, let alone a commie, wouldnt u think they should have got an import like a toyota 18R 2 litre or sumthing, they used a nissan in the VL later on so why not an import then, cheap bastards!

thats my 2 cents

Whitegoods

Hey all, I'm thinking of hotting up the old Frigidaire washing machine. Not sure what to do with it yet but I reckon on replacing the half horsepower electric motor with a blown nitro Starfire motor. That's make the competition feel "all washed up" for sure :0) :-P

Next on the list is the Frigidaire fridge. Then the electric stove/oven. They =are= Holdens you know...

weird starfire mod

i was talking to my mate bout his VC commodore, and how it has a little starfire in it, but when i went for a ride it was bloody quick, and then he opened the hood and i was greeted by a nicely detailed starfire with a modified and shortened VK EFI manifold? WTF, and a SC14 toyota supercharger? WTF again!

Bellhousing brace

It's been about 20 years since I looked at one, but with a VC or at least a UC fitted with a Starfire motor I seem to remember that they had a brace of sorts fitted between the engine block and the bottom of the bellhousing for the purpose of reducing any slight flexing so it would be a bit quieter and smoother.

Was this fitted only to Backfire donks or to 6 cyls as well? If not, can they be retrofitted to 6 cyls, in particular a red motor, or is there a difference in the casting or holes missing or something?
