    Are the summit quadrajets any good? Would one work in a 1984 GMC k1500 with a 305?

    how much are these

    part number ?
    url ?
    youll need one that can connect your 700r4 if you have one, the TV cable and correctly..

    otherwise you should be fine other than fuel line inlet hose modification

    make sure it has power brake connection spot and all that.

    For about another $50 you can get a JET stage 2, I am sure that theSummit ones are fine but for the price I would get the JET.

    But they sell "Summit" brand and Jet rebuilt units. The summit ones are about $300 and Jet stage 2 about $350.

    I bought a Holley rebuilt quadrajet from Autozone a few years ago for an El Camno I had, and I didn't have a single problem with it.

    Does Edelbrock even make these any more? They are not in my last Edelbrock catalog.

    They aren't brand new as the Edelbrocks were they are rebuilds as are the ones from Jet. Based off prev experience with Summit I would expect quality to be top notch. However they are basically universal application stock rebuilds. For the little extra you can get a performance rebuild from JET. Also just remembered there is Sean Murphy (formally of JET) and I think his prices are the same as JET, but you send engine and application info to him and he does the rebuild to fit your engine needs.
