I am getting everything on. I pulled the edelbrock apart to change jets and needed to be cleaned really bad (have a great picture for the ethanol can do no wrong crowd). Then found the metering rods are all gone from my tuning kit. Its been over 4 years since I messed with it, so have no idea where they are or why I would have put them any where else besides the tuning kit.
I already know a factory 1405 carbs jetting will also run painfully rich here just like the Q-jet so I am doing the next best thing and putting smaller primary and secondary jets and keeping the metering rod the same since I don't have any other ones.
Also putting the smallest accelerator nozzle I can get on there for now.
The OEM jet size is .1'' up front and .95" in the rear.
Pretty much my only option with what is left of my kit is to put .98'' up front and .92'' or .95'' in the rear. I think I will try the smaller .92 jet in the secondaries.

Based on the jets that are missing from my tuning kit I believe I have installed .89'' in the secondaries and .95'' primaries but have no idea what metering rod in my Camaro.
