    Ok, I am trying to identify this Rochester. The numbers don't make sense to me, and the Karl guys' email is bad, so I thought i would post here. I don't know what this thing came off of.

    numbers on it:
    17082224
    2821 fup

    Description I came up with deciphering the numbers:
    92 2 barrel 455ci engine carb, which makes no sense.

    Can you help me out?

    170 - Prefix code
    8 - Decade produced (1980's)
    2 - Year produced (1982)
    2 - Quadrajet 4bbl, Federal standards
    2 - Division (Chevy)
    4 - Even number = auto tranny

    282 - day of the year produced
    1 - 1981

    So by my calculations you have a 1982 4bbl off a chevy with auto tranny. To my knowledge, there is no way of telling what size motor a carb came from unless you actually know what is came off.
