I have A 468 with a 8-71 and two 800 edelbrock should it have a surging idle or should it idle at one RPM?I have been told that it is running lean and rich that is why it is surging is this correct? I know race engines do surge but that could be the way engine is built.Thanks for any help.

It should idle smoothly at a constant RPM. It is going rich and lean and this is causing the surging. I never cared for Edelbrock carbs. They tend to be finicky. You will need to work on the idle circuts to try and smooth things out.
