Sounds like Converter to me... The carb as long as there is no dead spot should get there no problem..

I'd barrow the other carb again and see if it fixes the issue, could be a converter issue but if other carb fixes it, its a fuel issue.

I changed car at the trac and I noticed it right away , this baker comes on real hard at half track my mph is higher with the baker it just sucks when i stage it takes about 5 sec to get to 6200 rpm on brake . same size jets the baker does have power valve , also has 50s pumps frunt and back with 32s sqirters front and back
