The last 351W street engine I built, ended up with and Edelbrock Performer on it. Fashioned much the same as the Rochester, but with a few upgrades and a nice shiny finish. Metering rods were easy to change. Metering jets weren't much more work, as the carb came apart nicely, and didn't damage the gaskets.

Did a fair amount of work too with the Holley 4180C that came factory on the mid 80's Ford small blocks. Vacuum secondaries etc. At any given time I had 6 or 7 complete carb kits in a drawer in my toolbox, power valves, vacuum springs, etc. etc. Oh, to have the good old days back again.
