DEE, if this is a 1406 edelbrock, you might have a rich miss as well. edebrock tends to jet their carbs a bit rich so they work well out of the box on a variety of combinations. i realized this when i put a new edelbrock on my 83 grand marquis and i failed emissions until i jetted the carb down about four sizes as i recall.

OP, without the clatter (which would be very prevalent), I would be investigating ignition. As others have mentioned, systematically disconnect a plug on the first of every start up. Or get a scope.

My Counselor was found next to a dumpster in the back of a repair shop. Excellent condition with cart, manual and all the attachments. And believe it or not, it works perfectly. What were the main differences between the I and II?

And I thought I'd gotten a "deal". I still had to pick mine up and take it home, just like you did.


And believe it or not, it works perfectly.

They were a pretty rugged unit, built to be used as a mobile so you could replicate the driving conditions when failures showed up. I've had customers drive around with me along monitoring the scope while they drove the car into the failure mode that they were concerned about. Along with a portable O2 tailpipe sensor, it could be a thorough test for a driveability complaint.

IIRC, $1,500 when new.
