So Hi...have a 68 and 72. 68 is an LS swap (that one is mine), 72 is a 454/4spd and that's the wife's.
Been a trail o' trouble on hers....starting with paying 3x more for it....
Car came with a small edlebrock performer sitting on an adapter. Being an injection person I figured hey, just buy the right quad and all is well?! Bought a rebuilt quad from jegs, she snuck aound behind me and took the box to the dump before I even test fitted it. Yep....rebuilt with a bad core, leaked all over from a stripped fuel inlet.
So I do some reading and find out there is no good mass produced rebuilt. I bought a numbers right '73 454 carb on ebay, but my reading shows the guru that rebuilt them retired some years ago (Lars).
Any recommendations from the amassed storehouse of brainpower here on where to send this carb for a proper job?
And yeh, if anyone wants LS talk just yell. I'm much better with those
