Ok my dad just picked up my car from the shop yesterday, and it wont start to good, he says one time he almost ran the battery down tring to start it. It is a comp cam roller cam with 540/540 lift 10.5 compression. I am thinking i need a high tq starter. Would that solve it? Also the guy said i need a biger carb because it idel's to high my dad said like 1300rpm. It is only a stock 480cfm carb. I am thinking i need like a 750 double pumper. That 480cfm doesn't give enough fuel.

I take it this is for your 289? 750 would be a bit much, I got a 750 for my 351w with a 230/240 duration cam.. I think that is a tad much too for even my engine. Did the engine builder break the cam in?
