Just grab the number off the Qjet (back drivers side) Go to your local parts store and ask for a rebuild kit and float. Find a good service manual and just follow the steps. Qjets look like alot but they're actualy quite simple. Keep it clean and set it up right the first time.
I try to get a Standard-Hygrade "Jiffy Kit" ,or "Filko" brand carb kits if possible--they have better accelerator pumps, and usually give you a float scale to set the floats with..Tomco is ok,but a bit cheaper than the other two brands..
One thing to be sure of is to see if the choke pull offs are working..they won't come with the kit,and if one is junk,the carb will never act right!..same goes for the choke thermostat spring too..but electric ones usually don't go bad that often..
And on the same note of the choke...if the choke worked fine before you tear it down, DON'T mess with it.
Speaking in terms of a "rough" tune of a Quadrajet, choke adjustment is one of the most crucial, and most often incorrectly done.
Much appreciated, gentlemen.
All I found was GP Sorensen....?
I've used sorenson before, don't recall any problems with them.
As a matter of fact, I've purchased quite a few different make rebuild kits, and never had a problem as long as it was for the right carb.
