BBF N/A E85 CARB initial set up

Im running a 504ci high compression dome piston bbf. Trick flow single plane intake. A514 cam and aluminum cobra jet heads. With all supporting mods. Its a street car werkend warrior in have a e85 station right next to me so I went this route to get away from high price race fuel.

I took a quick fuel 850 race and converted it with the e85 quick fuel kit for a 4150 Kept all of that how it came. Changed these:
-air bleeds idle 65
-airbleeds high 31
-primary jet 85
-secondary 96
-primary power valve 4.5
-secondary power valve plugged
- primary squirter 42
-secondary squirter 50
- 50cc primary accelerator pump

Does this seem like a good starting point?
Anyone running close to what I am?

Failure is simply the opportunity to begin again, this time more intelligently.

ps- i think your carb is to small for your build.

Thanks for the info I'm over there and posted as well. I had the 850 laying around. So figured id give e85 a try with it see how i like it on the street before investing in another carb. I know it would like a 1100 or even 950 a lot better but I figure I'll suffer the power to get the car on the road. It's a 73 mach Iv e been restoring I'd like to be pounding payment in the spring.
