1 Background
This document aims to provide some information regarding fitment of350 Holley carburettors to FB and EK Holdens. It contains:
historical information, such as which jets and bleeds wereoriginally fitted to 350 Holley carburettors,
practical information on identification, disassembly andreassembly of 350 Holley carburettors, and
guidance on tuning, replacement parts and overhaul techniques.It contains answers to many of the questions that seem to come uproutinely on most of the early Holden forums:
“What jets should I run in my early Holden?” 
 
“Why is my Holley 
carburettor 
running so poorly?” 
 
“How do I set up a cable throttle?” 
 
Whilst this document is primarily related to the FB and EK Holdens, much of the information is applicableto other early Holdens. Please bear in mind that the 350 Holley carburettor was not an original fitment toearly Holdens, and hence that limited documentation is known to exist. Much of the information below isdrawn from internet forums, discussion with enthusiasts and common sense. I have used photos andother information from a wide variety of sources, particularly from the forums
 –
if anyone is offended bymy use of the material, feels I have breached copyright or needs recognition, please let me know and Iwill correct the issue immediately
.
I have drawn information from the following sources:
 
The Holley 2300 Handbook 
by Mike Ulrich (most notably the drawings used in Section 2),
 
Super Tuning and Modifying Holley Carburettors 
by Dave Emanuel,
Some very good info on how automatic chokes work and are tuned from
 
Some info published online by Holley at www.holley.com.  Equally, I have made opinions and drawn conclusions on some of the information I have found andequipment I have owned, and have cross-referenced some material - if anyone believes that I have madean error (or knows a better way to do something), please let me know and I will update the document...after all, the main purpose here is to help other early Holden enthusiasts. I havemarked some text in red in this document where I am missing information
 –
any help in closing these gaps is appreciated.Like all things automotive, installing, operating and maintaining a carburettor comes with a risk. Leakingfuel lines can lead to fires, jammed throttles can lead to out-of-control vehicles and items dropped down acarburettor throat can cause massive engine damage (amongst other hazards). Any advice contained in
this document is to be taken at the reader’s risk –
qualified mechanics should be consulted whereappropriate.The 350 Holley is a common choice for Holden inline six-cylinder engines. Whilst the carburettor isoversized for the original FB/EK Holden grey motor, it is a good match for the larger displacement redmotors. 350 Holley carburettors are also mandated in some forms of racing. For example, the currentspecification for both Australian Speedway Production Sedan and Modified Production Sedan classes
