Based on Holley experience you shouldn’t do the nut and bolt thing unless you want a big ‘dead spot’ when you put the pedal to the floor.

People frequently look down the carb, wind the throttle open and notice the secondary throttle plates/flaps don’t move, even with the motor running.
Then think they need to do the nut and bolt thing.
Wrong!
The secondaries will open only when the vacuum drops enough as in when you’re driving and punch the throttle, remember it’s a ‘vacuum secondaries’ carb, not a ‘double pumper’

Sure the nut and bolt deal will make the secondaries open - but now you have lots of air entering the carb but no extra fuel so get a lean mixture, a double pumper carb has a secondary accelerator pump to cope with this, a vacuum secondary carb does not.

Here is the proof of what Kirsten has in the way of a carb. A Weber-Edelbrock 1406, 600CFM carb from some years back, apparently, because of the Weber name still being on it.. Here is the pic she took..

Kirsten sent me pic of a couple of parts in Indian Turquoise that she wants to know what they are for. I think they are part of the section under the two front seats, those pieces below the seat cushion and the carpet. I have pieces off my front seats that look like them. Mine were taken off, stripped of the black material similar to that on the sides of the tranny tunnel, and sent out for chroming.. It looks to me that at some time in the past , a PO of her '60 had them on, but took them off when they went to an all white interior... Here are pix of mine and then the two pix she sent me... After looking at those pix again, mine, being a '59, do not look quite like those in turquoise, which, I assume, are for a '60..

They're the same pieces. All Squarebirds use the same ones. Maybe the angle is confusing you.

Thanks, John, now I understand.. Apparently, Kirsten found them on another site and was wondering what they were for. Now we know, and I have been able to tell her that if she wanted to paint her sections under the seats Indian Turquoise, those pieces can pretty easily be taken off, painted and put back on. That would give her an Indian Turquoise base under the car seats. I know that down the road, she is thinking of painting the seat sides, or the seats and backs Indian Turquoise with SEM paint, and maybe the center console also...

They look blue to me, not turquoise.
