I've liked the 670 I had and the 770 I now have. Only problem is those clear sight plugs...don't like them and they break off and you gotta take the bowl off to get the rest of it out. Put the brass plugs in when you get one.

I'm having a problem with the secondaries failing to open as quickly as they should on the 770, but the cause is most likely not manufacturer related...it's been modified quite a bit.

No problems wiht mine, only needed minor tuning out of the box. The clear sight plugs are only to be used to adjust the float level and should be replaced with the brass ones supplied after the floats have been adjusted.

so let me ask you this do you think the 670 would be to big for a 302 becasue i tihnk the 570 might be a little small i have a 650 right now that i had to replece the edelbrock and its a holley and it seems to do fine so maybe i answered my own question

Mine is only a 289 so I think you'd be okay as long as it is tuned correctly. I go the spring kit and fiddled with the secondaries a bit and it performs great.
