Edelbrock Carburetor Tuning

I love my Edelbrock carb but I had issues when I was trying to follow the Edelbrock manual to select a rod and jet combination to make a small change.  It seemed to me that the steps in the manual were too large to really fine tune the carb.  

So I did what any good engineer would do http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/happy.png
 - I created a spreadsheet that calculated the areas of different rod and jet combinations.  This allowed me to choose a rod and jet combination that was slightly richer or leaner either in "cruise" or "power" while minimally affecting the other setting ("power" or "cruise").

I sorted the information and added some "how to use" instructions to the bottom of the second sheet.  The information covers the 1403, 1405 and 1406 Edelbrock carburetors specifically and can also be used for other models.

This does the same basic thing but you have to use your brain a little more.   :-) I originally did these in Excel and, as you say, they can't be uploaded in that format.  So I converted them to jpg formats and uploaded them that way.  They're as easy to use but don't show all the math.  :-)
