i have this 1976 mustang cobra II 302 v8, the current carburetor I have in it is said to be the wrong one and it seems to flood the engine.
I want to put another carburetor, I need advise as to which one to use which would solve my problem. i was looking at the holley but need advise for the right carb.
thank you

If it's flooding the engine, it doesnt mean that it's too large, it means that it's screwed up. If the carburetor is too large, the result is a lean condition on the bottom end, due to lack of air velocity, therefore an inability to pull fuel from the jets, followed by a rich condition at higher rpm, since the jets in a larger carb are probably too big for the engine.
