    Please don't get a Q-jet I had more problems with mine then I can count I suggest spend some extra money and get an edlebrock just don't go to big for your horsepower range.

    If you knew how to work on and adjust a Q-Jet you would have had no problems. I have run them on every carberated vehicle I own and after the first time I rebuilt them I have never had another problem out of them. Unfortunatly they havew a bad rep because poeple who don't know how to adjust them just give up and use them as paper weights. But if you still hate them so bad please send them to me I can find a loving home for them.

    I got 2 completly together q-jet carbs. I also have one that is mostly there. I will post pics later today bout to go fishin' right now. I also got a Carter AFB, If I would have seen your post about 2 weeks ago I coulda hooked you up with a Edelbrock 1406, I found uses for both my spear Edelbrocks and got 2 of the trucks up and going.
