Q-jet question

Hello all,

I have a question regarding the Rochester Quadrajet.
Will a q-jet 7028213 DY for a manual tranny work with a automatic transmission?
I need the 7028212 DH, but was told the 7028213 DY will work with the automatic.
Does it matter, or will either one work on my 327/275 auto '68 Camaro?
Thanks for the help and clarification.

Either should work. One difference between the automatic and stick shift carburetors is the lack of linkage for a kickdown switch or rod etc. (or a kickdown cable if transmission is a TH350 from a '69 or newer).

69 Camaro -originally a LM1 car. 327, Edelbrock E-streets, hooker, DUI performance distributors, ultradyne cam, stewart, TRW etc. Vintage Air, AGR steering, Corbeau GTSII seats, 700R4 transmission, 12-bolt w/Eaton 4.11:1

OK...thanks for the help.
If I get the manual carb, can you buy and install the linkage for a kickdown switch or rod if you needed one?

Do you have the old carburetor to take it from ?

no, The linkage does not unbolt from the Q-jet like on some carbs. You need to get a Q-jet that is made for an automatic unless you want to do some fabricating and make the correct arm and bolt or weld it to the Q-jet you buy.

OK...thanksfor the clarification...so if i do NOT want to fabricate, make sure it is for an automatic, or it wont work? Is that right?
