I screwed up my carb today!!!. My rig kept hessitating and I've tried everything. The metal fuel line from the fuel pump to the carb was pinched so I took it off to get a new one. Of course no one here makes one and I wanted a metal one. I decided to put it back on. It was kind of difficult so I took of the fuel filter nut(?) and screwed in the fuel line. I then proceded to screw on the fuel filter nut(?) and I could tell it was cross threaded slightly before. I did my best to get it strait and about 3 turns from tight it totally jumped threads and now sits crooked. It leaks like crazy now and the gas pours over my engine. Crap!!!!! The only thing I can think of is buying a new carb. I can't spend the $380 for a new Quadrajet so does anyone have any other carb suggestions?? No Holleys Please. And who sells the rebuilt Quadrajets? Are they any good? Please reply soon!!
