Re: Big Block Q-jet
What exactly is stripped?...the big Hex fitting that holds the little fuel filter? Or the main body of the carb?
If it's the main body of the carb, junk it. It's made of pot metal and shouldn't be repaired,..we're talking about pressurized gasoline here,..dripping on a hot engine. No bueno.
If a you have a carb shop in your area,..drop by and see if you can purchase a good main body that has a "2" in the third digit of the part number stamping,..and a "2" as the fifth digit,..i.e., 702X2XX
The first "2" designates a 60's carb,..the "2" as the fifth digit means it wasn't a California smogger carb. Millions were made,..you should be able to find for $10-15.
With a couple of easy mods, you can make a q-jet perform great!
