Hi,
I am going to try and fix the stumble my car has soon. From what I read (and have been told here in the past) the best place to start is the squirter(s) and pump cams.
The motor is as per sig below.
I have had a 750 vs on it, and it now has a Holley 700 DP. When you floor it, the car hesitates, and sometimes the carb backfires.
The 700 has a 30 front and 31 rear squirter, pink cam in front, black in rear (both in position 1).
30cc pump.

The 750 vs had a 31 squirter, 30cc pump, orange cam.

The 1050 3 barrel has a 50cc pump, 35 squirter, yellow cam. (I haven't tried this carb yet, as I want to run a gasket set through it).

Anyway...

I have several spare 'cams' orange, black, and a white/cream/dirty coloured one - these are all about 5mm deep. I also have a blue one, which is about 6mm deep, with a lip on it. Am I correct that the 6mm one is for 50cc pumps, and the 5mm ones for 30cc pumps?

I am thinking about trying the 35 & 37 squirters in the 700dp to see what happens. I think in theory these should have the 50cc pump though?

Am I on the right track trying the squirters first?
I can get new ones, but would like to have SOME idea of the right size before buying some.

Any comments?

Thanks !

oops..
The intake is a Single Plane Super Victor 2925.
I don't really want to change the intake - yes I know an Edelbrock Air Gap Dual plane would probably be better for the street

Also, once past the stumble, the car runs fine, no other issues.

Thanks !

List numbers:

Holley 700 double pumper = 4778-8 and 1746
Holley 750 vac sec = 3310-6 and 2908
Holley 1050 vac sec = 4604-S

The Holley 700 is the one on it at the moment.
I'd ultimately like to run the 1050 (basically for the 'different' factor admittedly ), but would like to sort the 700 first.

Perhaps it would be good idea to make sure the powervalve is the right vacuum and working ok then fool around with the pumps.

The White (#218) Cam is the best one I've found for street in #2 hole. It will squrt quicker than any color when you hit the throttle.

Thanks everyone - I will have a proper look at this tomorrow (daughters birthday party today !).
Thanks Motorman for sending me the info too.

Am I correct in my thoughts that any of my cams that match the numbers in the list from motorman are definitely for the 30cc pump? (therefore the blue IS from a 50cc pump).

Thanks !

Just swapped the squirters in the 700 out.
They were 28 front, 31 rear (obviously I misread the front before). I swapped in a 31 front and 35 rear - I guess that was a bit of a jump, but it was all I had 'lying around'. Both of the new squirters I have swapped in have the 'legs' to direct the gas. I haven't had it on the road yet, but it *seems* better giving it a static rev, but can't tell until I get to drive it (next week probably). Can certainly see a big squirt from them.
Will be booking in for a dyno tune week after too, so if I can't sort it, maybe they can.
Will also finally be swapping in the MSD dizzy, so can get the advance etc sorted at the same time.
Hoping to get it ready in time for a local car clubs 'drag meet' so I can try it on the quarter, but can't do that until the exhaust and tune is sorted first.
Firgers crossed it works out
