    The Camaro from Holland.

    Is there enough room between dipstick tube and sparkplug for the boot? Looks really tight on the picture.

    Advice on buying Rochester Quadrajet

    Thankfully the camaro is not a daily driver - especially not the way it is registered right now. But good to keep in mind, and hopefully the electric conversion takes care of this issue.

    1979 Berlinetta Z28 Dress from Germany

    Well its September 2019, and what do I have to show up for? Nothing. Literally nothing happened to the car. Except, that I bought an 80€ 1977 "presumably original" Qjet for the car. I do feel I have to take thing back on track and finally DO something; strangely enough from doing nothing it...

    Advice on buying Rochester Quadrajet

    Yes, I am fairly new at this, especially considering Qjets. The PO had installed a Holley DP - IIRC 4150 - and left most things unattached. It ran, but not what I would call good. Than years past I'm in the process of restoring it kinda original. And yes, I bought that carb and if I am lucky I...

    Advice on buying Rochester Quadrajet

    Indeed the climate is milder and wetter than what I experienced in the US. One reason is, German legislation doesn't "like it" if you let your car idle to warm up. But the main reason is, I have a steep curved driveway, and the back porch of my neighbor in direct line of sight. And he hates the...

    Advice on buying Rochester Quadrajet

    As it has a hot air choke, can this be easily switched to a electric one? Or what do I need, except what is already on the carburetor?

    Advice on buying Rochester Quadrajet

    Hi Thanks for the evaluation. Indeed these bolt holes look pretty worn. I can't really tell of the previous history of it. Supposedly it was on the camaro and was switch for a hood scoop and edelbrock carb, cause "i think it is cool". So far I have a Holley 4150 double pumper (if I remember...

    Advice on buying Rochester Quadrajet

    Hi, I need your knowledge again. Is this Qjet correct for a 1979 Berlinetta with a 350cui engine? - thats what it supposedly came from. Is this carb in good 'ready to drive' condition? What additional costs do I have to consider, except the 80€ ~ 90$ buying cost? What do I have to do to make it...

    What Remflex Exhaust gaskets do I need?

    Well calling them is a bit difficult, as I am over the pond and in very different time zone. But what engine do you have? A normal SBC? Did your ports looked like mine? Did your header flange looked like mine?

    Just a 79 camaro

    No need for additional switches, the OE locations and sort of valves and switches is enough and sufficient. Remember u can buy premade hoses if your car and locations of things (compressor, heater and such) is mostly stock. If you switched places of generator and compressor u may need your...
