Right......and a vacuum leak can do that.....trust me....

Same as distributor advance springs.... if you have that type..had both issues in past that's how I know....

If you suspect flooding then take arrestor off and watch it....if its flooding that. Bad you will see it.....

Are you opening the throttle after it stalls to try to clear the flood? What I mean is, open the throttle, crank the engine on the stalled/flooded engine and that should allow it to clear the flood and fire off.

You could also use a timing light to verify spark while its not starting, zip tie the trigger and shove in the backseat where you can still see it or something.

We had one a couple years ago that was a faulty rev limiter but that would cause the motor to drop out but that was at speed. Over a couple weeks the interval that the motor would run before dropping out got shorter and shorter. It too would re-fire after sitting for awhile. Only one of the motors had a rev limiter on it and it was the one I hadn't torn down the year before so I didn't know it was there until I swapped the ignition modules.

Doesn't sound similar since yours only fails after you've come off plane, not at speed.

I just went through the same issue. It's actually the opposite of what your thinking, its running lean at idle. Fatten it up at idle and it should take of your problem.

Let it idle for a while and pull a plug that will also help... I am betting its more lean then not...or timing at idle....

Put the Edelbrocks back on and use your Holleys for an anchor
