    I did find <A href="http://store.summitracing.com/eproduct.asp?N=120+4294925239+4294925135+308353" target=_blank>this one at summit for ~$300.

    Anyone have other sources for picking up a rebuilt q-jet?

    There is a place called SMI Carburetor that sells them. ~$320 IIRC
    If I ever get a "new" carb that's where I'm going to get it. If you go to the website you can fill out a page that has all your vehicle info and they build the carb to suit your application.

    If you dont like those

    I have a rebuilt Q jet sitting in my shop. It has been bagged and on a shelf for many years. It was never ran after I rebuilt it so the gaskets should still be in good condition. It should run fine but no guarentees.
    Carb is off 1980 Chev truck 350 CID. I just pulled it down and checked it out. It still looks good. Gaskets are still soft.
    PM me if your interested. Its going on Ebay soon.

    If you willing to spend 350.00 I would recommend Jet Performance.

    I bought the Jet Performance 800 cfm stage 2 quadrajet from Jegs and am very happy with it. The BG 750 was sucking gas in the blazer 2 mpg. The quadrajet gets me 8 mpg in the burb.

    There's a local place that a most everyone swears by. No more than $175. Old man that runs the place is the authority on Q Jets. Been rebuilding them for 20+ years. I would think Austin would have a place similar. Support your local economy :waytogo:
