What is your favorite Big Block?

My favorite Big Block would have to be between the 460 and the 429 for the amount of torture you can put them through and they continue to run. I currently own a 429 cobra jet bored 30 over and an…Continue

Mike;Check the carb  needle and  seat ,too much  pressure might have put a wear line in the  viton tip,that would  let fuel bypass on shutdown .

 Try adjusting the fuel pressure down to 6 to 8 pounds on the electric pump. Or installing a mechanical pump on the motor next to the oil filter.

Looking for info on the fuel pressure for 1965 352. running a 4 barrel holley. I've tried 2 new carbs, adjusted floats added 1 inch spacer, changed filter and fuel lines. It runs fine untill I come to a complete stop then it floods and dies. Has thrown gas out of carb onto intake and started right back up. Acts like fuel pump not shutting down, anyone have any ideas?  I'm thinking maybe to much fuel pressure.
