Default Holley Street Avenger

I have been having issues with my Holley Street Avenger. Holley has agreed to repair and send it back to me for$75.00. I'm have to pay freight to them. I thought this sounded pretty good since I have had this carb since 03.

What one are you using. Im using a 870 converted mine back to manual choke. Never really had and problems but does seem to run rich or lean lol. Cant pass a gas station with this on a big block. Im really thinking of just going to a 650 double pumper or a deisel engine hahaha.

Mine is a 670. I'm having problems with the Choke. I set the Choke. Then if I touch the butterfly, it falls to the open position. If you don't touch it, it falls when you start it. I took the Choke cap off and all is good. The other issue is the fuel bowls overfill. I take the sight covers off. Then rock the car, reset the floats with the car running. In a few days it's overfull again. The leak issue was resolved with the fuel regulator, which is set at 6lbs.

a driver car would probly be fine with 4-5psi fuel pressure, it may help the overfilling too..
try 5psi and see if it gets better??

sounds like the spring/linkage is disconnected on the choke flap/butterfly??
if you richen the choke setting, can you feel the spring on the flap??

I would have to agree if the flap just falls your linkage isnt hooked up.

Thanks. There isn't any spring on this linkage. It just runs on the fast idle cam.

The spring is internal, under the cover, the windy thing that grows with heat.

this is a electric choke??
the spring is in the black cover,
turning the cover rich or lean should make the spring tighter or looser..

I don't know. The spring looks like new and it moves the butterfly when I set the Choke. When I set the Choke further, then it sticks. Then the next time the Choke won't work.

I was having problems with the bowls flooding at 5.5 lbs. Not a problem at 9-9.5lbs.

still sounds like the spring connection to the choke linkage/flap is not right,,
the choke flap should be spring loaded both ways..

if its cold it should snap closed with spring pressure,,
if hot it should be held open with spring pressure..

I had it off 2 days ago and put it back together. I'm not sure how to show the spring over the tang, but I'll see what I can do. Thanks again for the help.
