Question

Due to the high prices and the fact that most of the 4053 Holleys for the DZ302 engine around are trashed or have mis-matched parts, I plan on converting a 3310-3 780 I originally bought years ago. Correct me if I'm wrong will ya, is it 4150 or 4160 without that rear plate the jets screw into? I put a wanted ad in looking for one to convert mine. Any suggestions?

Gary,
I have at least 4 3310's in various conditions. Let me know what price range you are interested in and I will look through the garage and see what I have. I beleive I have at least one actual Chevrolet 780 version, although I doubt that it was from a Z. If all you need is the secondary metering block conversion kit, AED sells them for about $40 I can also get that for you if you wish.

BillK...I haven't a clue what would be a good price for a used set up. But if you do have one for a fair price in nice condition I sure could use it. I'll need the longer bolts/screws as well. If I don't have the metering block on my carb, what is it, 4150 or 4160? I fooled around with this stuff many years ago and just recently bought a 69 Z to work on in my old age. HA, HA. Are we having fun yet?

Allen M...the 750 is #3910. If i'm not mistaken the 780 isn't being made anymore. Somebody correct me if I'm wrong.

I downloaded the carb listiong from Holley and the PDF shows the 3310 and the 3310-1 are 4150 carbs rated at 780 cfm. The 3310-2 through 3310-6 are 4160 carbs rated at 750 cfm.

Only the 3310-1 is a 780.

Most current 3310's (all subsequent part numbers) are 750's.

The venturi sizes are the same but the "Original" or -1 numnber has high-performance dogleg boosters which increase the CFM rating.

Cool

After looking at my carb again, it turns out that it is a 3310-2. I bought this carb many, many years ago (70's) as a 780 CFM 4160 model with the manual choke on it.

It's been put to the forums in the past that all 3310-X are the same (780) and Holley just changed the bench flow process to alter the results.

Just a little something to ponder!!
