I have an 85 El Camino. I love my truck. Lots of electdical issues im working through but there is no rust and the engine starts up and runs great..... Buuuut every now and then she doesnt want to start on the third crank. Hot or cold doesn't matter. Amount of time sitting doesn't matter. And when she does start the idle I extremely rough but she will level out after a few minutes of running. Also I get a lot of white bluish smoke that has a very pungent aroma. It so bad that i feel the need to appologize for it sometimes. And she drinks oil about half as fast as she does the gas. Now you should know that she has a 305. I bought her with a Holley double pumper 750 on top, Edelbrock top end and flow master exhaust with the CC delete. I hate those stupid things anyway. There is no loss of power other than when I have to step on the gas to quickly she falls flat on her face. My question is what can i do to fix the smoking issue amd can that large of a carb be tuned to match that engine or should i just get one closer to or just like tje original. I just want it to run good, sound good and look good. I'm not looking to race it. Oh and haul my motorcycles. Any advise anyone can give me on my car i would greatly appreciate it. Thank you all. Glad it be anpart of this forum
