Ah, I can understand that. Is that description correct, Don?
I was told by a moderator at ChevyTalk.com that the only 'electronic' part of the carb was a solenoid to switch from a double capacity accel. pump when cold, to half capacity when hot. So, when Don gave me his description, I was quite confused.
Now, this makes me wonder. I can get a very nice, clean Q-Jet from a '74 Chevy PU with a 350, all rebuilt for $75. Should I take off my electronic unit for this mechanical Q-Jet? I do prefer the mechanical, but I would like to still pass emissions. I also have a normal 4-pin module I could put in the distrutor (which currently has a 7-pin), recurve it on my machine, and drop that in as well. That way I can do away with, all together, the ECU. But from a reliability standpoint, is this a wise way to go?
Thanks for all your help guys. Don, if you don't mind, I would like to have your shop number. Drop me an email if you'd like.
