Ok, I have had it with this Carb on my RV.

I'm looking at Summit Auto Racing Holley 2300 marine series
carb to maybe replace it. HLY-0-80402-1

Think it might work?

What About a Smog Inspection?

I really don't want to buy a USED/Remanufactered carb of the same
design.

The 2bbl 2210 Holley is the carb that horrifically failed emissions on my 360 '78 Cordoba. I ended up pulling the manifold and installing a four barrel Thermoquad, seeing as how it seemed dumb to rebuild or replace a two barrel with another two barrel.

Edelbrock still makes a small block spread bore intake manifold, part 2176 for non-EGR applications, part 3776 for those requiring EGR. They also make a spread bore clone of the Quadrajet carburetor if one doesn't feel like tuning a Thermoquad. Of course, there are some Thermoquads with fairly large primaries, and I've been told that they push 1000cfm. I'm thinking about putting that setup on my '78 Magnum's E58 package 360 block and going with a nice exhaust to really make use of it. *grin*

Horrifically failed......... that doesn't sound so encouraging.

Did you see what I was looking at? Holley 2300 marine certified
carb? They have side tune-able jet plates.
I can see them saying that a 4bbl doesn't replace a 2bbl. So I
was looking at the 2bbls.

Humm....

I just went out and stuck a new power valve in this one. It had
the wrong power valve in it.... it had the 2245 power valve. and the
plunger didn't even reach it.... Plus it had 'plaque' gas build up in the
needle seat, and all over the needle return spring....

It seems to run 100% stonger now if I crack the throttle........
Gu Gu Gu..........I love it, I love it.....

I got to bypass my clogged radiator cooler and set the timing, tweek
the idle mixture and hook up the EGR stuff - troubleshoot that...make a
restrictor EGR plate..... if I can get the vacuum ampifier working.....

But I think your right.....this Holley 2210 seems kind of flaky.....
Sometimes it has 13 in of vacuum......sometimes I crack the throttle and it
comes back at 15. Remember this is a brand new engine with only 13 miles on it.
and 30 min of idle tinkering time.

I didn't inspect my stock iron 2bbl manifold under the rivet on plate. I heard there is a rubber moulding plug under there.....is that true?
I'd love to get that 3776 edlebrock manifold.........but I pay child support.

That's why I'm dinking around with this old Holley 2210.

I got a crate Rincon 360 with dual exhuast and dual 2 1/4 inlet 40inch truck mufflers......

Oh man if it was in a car........ It will lift the front of my RV and float it up to
45mph..... It's all wandering everywhere.....creaking....

I should have kept saving for a magnum for a Hi-Po crate motor

Sure is fun.

:D

I didn't take the manifold apart. It was really gross and since I wasn't planning on ever using it again I didn't see much point in it.

The stock 4bbl 360 manifold isn't much different from the Edelbrock, it just weighs a lot more and isn't quite as finely made. That's what went on the Cordoba, and I managed to find it plus the Carter Thermoquad for $75 at a car show. This particular setup had come off of a '79 300; I'd imagine that the '78 Lil' Red Express would be an even better one to get.
