    Well, If your 600 is beyond help....I'd head over to summitracing.com and probably look at a Holley 650...certainly would not go any bigger on a 283 sb. Probably the cheapest easiest way to deal with it. My .02 worth.

    A good factory quadrajet is my favorite. they will eat dirt and darn near run upside down. edelbrock has a new identical model now. but the salvage yard will have thousands that only need a rebuild and throttle plate bushings. about $40 when done

    I run the factory 2jet on my 400 ci sb, factory except a rv (torque) cam.

    If you keep buying Holley's you're going to end up with full bushes :D

    Q-jet or even a dual jet would serve you better.

    Better yet, go TBI. ;)

    I agree a good Q-Jet would be perfect
