Now that my '84 C10 is back on 4 wheels, it is time to address the way it runs.

As purchased, the 305 has a well-worn Edelbrock 1496 750cfm (WAY overkill) sitting on top.
The throttle shaft bore is worn to a point where, when running, the throttle plates will not return to idle without significant spring  tension.
Extremely difficult to drive w/stick shift.

What carb do y'all recommend?
Motor is currently stock, but I have headers and new exhaust for ti, and plan on someday getting better heads,cam and intake.
Maybe upgrade to a 350.
Those mads are a ways down the road a bit,
The Original Q-Jet is rated at 650cfm ??
Seems it was stock on 305 and 350.

I need to be able to drive the critter now.

Hey, I bought a rear axle disc brake conversion kit for a 3/4 ton and I'm just wondering what kind of proportioning valve I need for this system? Can't run the stock one I'm assuming. If not, where can I get one that is made for 4 wheel disc conversions?

New member here.  I have a 79 K10 that recently blew the fuseable link on the firewall.  It happened the first time when it was at the paint shop.  And it has happened several times since.  I replaced the fuseable link with a fuse holder so I wouldn't have to splice over and over again.  I can start the truck and it will run for a second or so and then that fuse will blow.  The truck will run very rough at that point and the dome light under the dash comes on and pulsates/flickers. This is intermittent. I was able to take it for a test drive for about 10 minutes the other night. I came back and parked it, half an hour later (not having done anything to it) I started it up to put it in the garage and it popped again.  I have new wiring from the bulkhead, to the starter, to the alternator, new fuseable links at the starter, etc... I just can't figure out why it blows 20/25 amp fuses very quickly when it does and then occasionally it will run for several minutes. Thank you.
