  1. Holy shit you blew my mind. I now remember seeing old video of trumpets being made where they used pitch to fill the tubes before bending, and sand makes a lot of sense. Thank you!!
  2. Ugh, we tried that, and the bends are a pain in my ass. Maybe I need a better bender, because the one I bought from the local parts store was a POS and caused all sorts of kinks, even with very careful pressure. Got any benders you recommend?
  3. Does anyone know what fuel line/tube would be the right match for this engine, between the carb and the fuel pump? I bought this one (https://www.summitracing.com/parts/CST-CAC1016-OE), which is an exact match for the top 3/4, but the bottom end near the pump is too long and some of the bends aren't right... this one (https://www.summitracing.com/parts/cst-cec1029-oe?rrec=true) looks closer, but I'm wondering if anyone has an easy answer without me buying another one.... might be this one (https://www.summitracing.com/parts/rsd-mpc7701s/year/1977/make/chevrolet/model/monte-carlo), too, but it
  4. I hand't known that, thanks! Is it to drain the lines or the tank?
  5. Hey all, So we got into the carb replacement yesterday. Had to cut off the fuel line at the carb, as the tube was fused to the flare nut and we couldn't get it loose. We tried to bend a new one, but our bending tool was a POS, so I ordered this one from Summit racing, which looks like a match: https://www.summitracing.com/parts/CST-CAC1016-OE Anyway, when we removed the flare nut from the fuel pump, fuel started pouring out. Is that normal? I assumed it would only leak the fuel from the line and in the old carb, but it was at least a half cup or more and still flowing strongly un
  6. Thanks, all. We decided to go with a rebuilt one from National Carb for the time being, but if that gives us any trouble, Quadrajet Power really seems like they know what they are doing. I just couldn't wait 12 weeks for them to rebuild it right now.
  7. The 2697 includes a fuel line kit. And yes it's the 350. Ok, thanks for the info, mfg.
  8. Thanks, both of you. Is the 1904 the right model, if I were to go that route? Or maybe the 1901? Also, quadrajet power seems like they would know what they're doing... does anyone have any experience with them specifically? https://quadrajetpower.com/
  9. Hi all, We're working on getting my grandpa's '77 running after sitting for many years in his garage. There was nearly a full tank of gas that we siphoned out, and replaced with premium. Threw in a new battery and a bit of gas in the carb and it cranked right over and caught a few times. We couldn't get it to stay running, and our car restorer buddy said the lower jets (I think that's what he said) were probably clogged and the engine was running lean. His thought was to just swap carbs, but I'm finding out that new quadrajets are nearly impossible to find. So my options are (i) ebay
