Cool More Problems

I know all I do is ask for help on my problems but, it seems as if my truck prefers to cause very complicated problems. I replaced my Holley 650 carb with a Barry Grant Speed Demon 750 and guess what....... I think it might be too much carb for a mildly built 360 FE motor? The flooding out, the running very rich if at all, the not running at all and the white smoke? Will a change from a 650 to a 750 make that much difference? All I know is I am about 3 problems away from getting the first problem solved so any help on this one would more than appreciated. Thanks again.

Well, I have heard people say the 750 on my stock 460 is a little too much And you can really smell the gas, so I know its running rich. Are you sure you tuned it right? I wish I could be of more help, but carbs are new to me. The FE forum might be your best bet, I know someone there will be able to help you. Just curious, why did you change it?
