In my '69 Camaro I have a Chevy 350cid with a Rochester Quadrajet, stamped:
2982 FRB

The engine is, I believe, a 1980 truck motor (V0724TDB; C8S219693),I do not know for sure but I assume the carb was for that engine. I've read that most Quadrajets are 750 cfm. Does anyone know where I can get information on the specs for this carb on-line, and what you might suggest for a re-build kit.
I was thinking of picking up "Rochester Carburetors" by Doug Roe or the Mike Stubblefield, John Harold Haynes "Rochester Carburetor Manual".

Any help is appreciated.

Hi Hank
When I get a carb or part number I just plug it into a search engine like or and usually come up with a link. Here is the first link I came up with and it looks like an 83 Monte Carlo or Caprice carb.

Actually, the carb rebuild kits that you get from NAPA or Kragen or whereever will have a four page description of float adjustment and other stuff. So, I doubt you even need a book. The rochesters are real easy to rebuild and the rebuild kits have gasket sets for usually four different models of the quadrajet. So, you generally only use about 1/3 of the supplied gaskets in the rebuild kit.
The only things you really need to be careful about is not bending the metering rods when you remove them and not lose the ball bearing/check valve ball.
Take the carb number to your favorite parts store and they will probably have the rebuild kit in stock.
