Default Switching carbs on my 67

Hey, Had a question. What i have is a 67 covertible gta with a 289 a class i believe. It has a holley 650 on it and i've had nothing but problem. I ordered a two barrell holley 2 and just want to sleep tonight knowing it will go on the engine and work for me. Again goin from 4 barrell to 2 barrell. Will it work? Thanks

Itll work just fine, unless your car is a hi-po, then you should replace it with a smaller 4 barrel, something like a 600 should be just right. But if youre really set ona 2bbl, there shouldnt be any problems.

cool, thanks. I've had the car for about 25 years and if I remember right it had a 2 barrell until a shadetree got ahold of it and beefed it up. Love the speed but now its shot and no gas mileage. But thank you so much....appreciate it.

you can get better mileage from a 4V if you keep your foot out of it...the main to barrels are SMALLER than a 2V carb...I think that it is a waste of time and money

twisters right.i have a holley based 650(quickfuel) and have NO problems out of it.its not the size of carb thats hurting you, its probly just not tuned right or needs a rebuild.if you cant do that yourself i would take it to a carb shop and have them do it for you.
