Never been inside a carb before and I've got a lot to learn, but I'm gonna try tuning mine sometime next week. Does the Chassis Service Manual cover carb tuning? I don't need a complete rebuild, just suspect it of running a little rich.

I've got an Edelbrock Performer. Don't know the serial number yet. If the Service Manual doesn't do the job justice, does anyone have good references I should look into?

Thanks.

granted it's not the original Rochester Q-Jet, but my understanding is that the Edelbrock Performer Q-Jet is very similar. Was mostly hoping to find good illustrations and general concepts from the manual.

Motorman - thanks for the link. I'll check that out.
