    Make sure to keep you receipt ( /forums/images/icons/smile.gif ) but 3/8x16 IIRC is the carb ones (1/2" socket for the head) but length I can't help you with. Drop a screwdriver through the carb, and give yourself a minimum of 3/8" over the carb "thickness", more like 1/2" though is correct I believe. The rear ones are very short though, like 1.5", if you are talking Q-jet, which is what my assumptions are based on.

    TC I'd use grade 8, (and I have no idea what size they are, maybe 1/2"?) but the carb I'd go no higher than grade 5.

    Just buy a whole assortment, and whatever works, keep, and return everything else.
