INSTALLATION PROCEDURE
BEFORE REMOVING OLD CARBURETOR
1. Determine if the distributor vacuum port is timed (no
vacuum at idle) or full (vacuum present at idle). With the
engine at operating temperature and idling, pull the vacuum
advance hose off of the carburetor and “feel” for vacuum by putting
your finger on the vacuum port
Fig. 2
(See Fig. 2). If your distributor
has timed vacuum advance, you
will hook the vacuum hose from
the distributor to the passenger
side vacuum port on the new
carburetor. If it has full vacuum
advance, it will be hooked up to
the driver side port.
2.
The stock steel fuel line must be converted to fuel resistant
rubber hose. The stock steel line will not connect to the Performer
Series Carburetor. Use Edelbrock Universal Fuel Line Kit #8135.
This kit contains a filter, neoprene hose, and fittings to adapt to
5/16” or 3/8” stock steel fuel lines (See Fig. 3).
3.
Always use a new fuel filter. Failure to do so will void your
warranty.
4.
You must use Edelbrock Adapter #2696 or Adapter & Fuel
Line Kit #2697 when installing a Performer Series carburetor on
a General Motors Quadrajet or Chrysler Thermoquad intake
manifold. #2697 includes adapter #2696 and fuel line kit #8135.
Do not use an open adapter! (See Fig. 4)

5.
NOTE: After cutting the steel line, remove sharp edges and
clean out any chips.
You must use Edelbrock Adapter #2732 when installing a
Performer Series carburetor on certain Edelbrock intake manifolds.
In those applications, install the adapter as shown (See Fig. 5).

6.
Do not use more than 6.5 PSI fuel pressure. Excessive fuel
pressure may cause flooding. If your fuel pressure is too high, install
an adjustable pressure regulator, such as Edelbrock #8190.
9.
7.
It may be necessary to re-route the fuel line to prevent interference
with the air cleaner. Test fit your air cleaner on your new carburetor
before you begin installation. Look for areas of interference such as
the choke housing, fuel inlet fitting, and fuel line.
10. Remove old mounting gasket and thoroughly clean mounting
surface. Compare old carb gasket to the gasket included with your
Edelbrock carburetor. If there is a difference in bolt pattern or bore
spacing, an adapter will be required (see “Before Removing Old
Carburetor”, steps #4 & #5).
PERFORMER SERIES CARBURETOR INSPECTION
1. Check for possible damage to the carburetor.
2.
Make sure all throttle linkages operate freely.
3.
Ensure that all fuel inlet and vacuum ports are free from packing
material.
CARBURETOR REMOVAL
1. Prior to removal, make sure that the engine is cool.
2.
Disconnect the negative battery cable from the battery.
3.
Remove air cleaner. Be sure to carefully disconnect any hoses from
the air cleaner and note their location for reinstallation. You may
want to mark them with masking tape for easy reference.
4.
Disconnect throttle linkage, kickdown linkage (certain automatic
transmission applications only), cruise control (if equipped) and any
return springs if present.
NOTE: Check carefully for the precise location of all these
linkages and return springs. You may want to mark them with
masking tape for easy reference.

CARBURETOR PREPARATION
1. Compare the throttle
Ford Throttle Lever #1483
arm of your new
bolts to carb throttle arm
carburetor with the old
one to be sure that all
required linkages will
hook up. Install the
proper throttle and
transmission linkage
for your particular
application. Throttle
Fig. 6
stud is removable and
must be installed in the proper location. Chrysler vehicles with
automatic transmission will require Throttle Lever Kit #1481. Ford
vehicles with automatic transmission and cable linkage will require
Throttle Lever Kit #1483 (See Fig. 6) and Throttle Cable Plate Kit
#1490 (for 289-302), #1491 (for 351-W), #1493 (for 351-C & 351M/400), or #1495 (for 429/460).
2.
Check and prepare carburetor for proper vacuum fitting installation
(EGR, power brakes, PCV, distributor, transmission, etc.), using the
supplied vacuum caps, “T” and hose when applicable. If vacuum
port at rear of carb is not used, plug with the 1/4 NPT pipe
plug supplied (Except marine models, port is not drilled).
3.
On electric choke models (See Fig. 7), remove one choke housing
retaining screw and install eyelet end of choke ground wire (black)
to the choke housing, and reinstall the screw. Connect clip end of
choke ground wire to negative (–) spade terminal on choke housing.
Disconnect all wires, tubes, and hoses from carburetor and note
their locations.
NOTE: There should be a maximum of one wire to the electric
choke and one to the idle compensator solenoid (if equipped
with A/C). Any other electrical wiring attached to your
carburetor indicates a computer controlled engine. Edelbrock
carburetors will not function correctly on computer controlled
applications.
Black wire (–): To Ground
(Carb Body)
Disconnect the heater tube from the choke housing (if so equipped).
Edelbrock carburetors do not use the hot-air-style choke, so this
tube may be left disconnected with no problems. If you would like
to cover this opening on a stock manifold, you may be able to use
the appropriate Edelbrock Choke Adapter Plate: #8901 for smallblock Chevrolets; #8961 for big-block Chevrolets; #8951 for
Oldsmobile V8s; #8971 for 351-M/400 Fords; #8981 for 351-W
Fords.
Carefully remove the fuel line from the carburetor. TAKE EXTREME
CARE NOT TO SPILL ANY EXCESS FUEL. Place a rag underneath
the fuel line to absorb any spillage that may occur. Certain models
require two wrenches to remove the fuel line; one to hold the fitting
on the carburetor and the second to turn the fitting on the fuel line.
Use a tubing wrench to avoid rounding the tube fitting nut.
Remove mounting nuts or bolts and washers. Be sure to put them
where they won’t fall into the intake manifold upon carburetor
removal.
Part #1403, 1404, 1405, 1406, 1407, 1409, 1410, 1411, 1412 & 1413
Rev. 6/10 - AJ/mc
Remove carburetor, being careful not to spill any dirt into the intake
manifold. Immediately place a clean rag into the intake manifold to
keep foreign objects out.

3.
Replace all mounting nuts and washers. EnduraShine™ finish
carburetors should use the supplied 5/16” flat washers under any
other washers used. Hand tighten with a short box-end wrench,
alternating between diagonally opposed nuts.
8.
Edelbrock idle compensator #8059 may be installed to raise idle
speed during air conditioning compressor operation.
9.
Install new air horn gasket and air cleaner stud (supplied). Install air
cleaner, making sure it does not contact the carburetor linkage or
fuel line, and has proper hood clearance. We recommend Edelbrock
Pro-Flo chrome air cleaner #1221, which is a 14” diameter, open
element air cleaner that is designed to fit all Edelbrock Performer
Series carburetors. Extremely
Banjo Fitting
low profile air cleaners will not fit
#8089
electric choke carburetors
without air cleaner spacer #8092
(due to choke and fuel line
interference) but will fit manual
choke carburetors when used
Fig. 10
with 90° banjo fuel inlet fitting
#8089 (See Fig. 10).
CAUTION: Overtightening may break carb base and
void your warranty.
4.
Connect all throttle and
transmission linkages and
throttle return springs. You
may have to cut, bend or
modify your stock throttle
cable brackets to fit the new
GM
#352279
carburetor, or use GM
Fig. 8
#352279 (See Fig. 8). 197278 small-block Chevrolets may use Edelbrock Throttle,
Transmission, and Cruise Control bracket #8031, #8036, or #8030
(chrome).
IMPORTANT NOTE: With engine OFF, make sure that
there is no interference when opening and closing
the throttle. Be sure there is no binding or hanging
up between idle and wide open throttle, as this could
cause the throttle to stick open, resulting in loss of
engine speed control.
5.
Manual choke:

(See Fig. 9).
Electric choke:
Connect the red
choke wire to a 12
volt positive (+) source that is activated by the ignition switch (Not
the coil or alternator; see Fig. 7).
10. Mark air cleaner stud for
proper length, remove
from carburetor, and cut
with a hacksaw. Deburr
stud and reinstall it in the
carburetor, along with the
air cleaner (See Fig. 11).
11. Recheck all linkage for
smooth throttle operation.
12. Reconnect the negative battery cable from the battery.
13. Start engine and check for fuel or vacuum leaks. With engine at
normal operating temperature and the choke fully open, set idle
speed and mixture screws (See Carburetor Owner’s Manual).
NOTE: If manual choke is not connected (secondary carb of
dual-quad setup, for example) then the choke blade must be
fixed open. To lock open, use a stiff piece of wire between the
choke lever and the mounting bracket. Fold the wire to double
its thickness about one inch from one end. Insert the wire in
the choke lever, hold choke blade in the wide-open position,
and tighten the cable clamp on the folded end of the wire.
6.
Connect all vacuum hoses to their proper location on the carburetor
(See Fig. 1). Replace hoses that appear brittle or cracked to prevent
vacuum leaks.
7.
Connect fuel line to carburetor. Avoid contact with any sharp edges
or areas of extreme heat.
Fig. 11
CAUTION: Be alert to carburetor flooding. Flooding can be
caused by dirt, small particles of hose cuttings, floats and inlet
needles which have settled during shipping, etc. When the fuel
pump is turned on or when the engine is first started, watch
closely for signs of flooding. If flooding occurs, turn engine off
immediately and lightly tap on the side of the carburetor that is
flooding, in the rear needle and seat area with a rawhide
mallet, or wooden handle of a hammer. Start engine and see if
flooding continues. If so, refer to your owner’s manual.
WARNING: NEVER POUR FUEL DIRECTLY DOWN THE
CARBURETOR WHEN ATTEMPTING TO START THE
ENGINE! THIS MAY CAUSE A BACKFIRE AND POSSIBLE
ENGINE COMPARTMENT FIRE, RESULTING IN ENGINE OR
VEHICLE DAMAGE, PERSONAL INJURY, AND/OR DEATH.
NOTE: Some late model Ford 460 engines are equipped with
hot fuel bypass units. It is necessary to replace the stock unit
with Ford #E3TZ9N176B (with blue dot) which has a .040”
orifice.
