Need help with secondary metering rods. I need to know where to order?? I think I am looking for the dr rods.? For racing.I just order the edl 1950 and the edl 1951 from summit racing will be here in two days. Where can a man find the dr rods? Salvage yards around don't have too many quads. Thanks I am running a pure stock 350 3 speed flat tops, 481xheads,or 441x heads ??,410 lift cam, 308 rear gear, on a medium banked oil-packed dirt 1/2 mile track. I had AN rods in the carb, But tried to file them down and messed up ! Car was fluttering at the end of straights. Seemed to be running out of gas. Thanks. I have DD rods in there now but got rained out sat noght so didn't get to try them.DD was the only ones I could find on short notice. Running a B Hanger. Thanks soo much.

We can still supply 3 sizes of PRIMARY rods but our source for secondary rods has dried up.
You might try doing an internet search for something like "carb connection" or something like that. They used to sell them but not sure they still do.

Hope that helps,

dr,cp,ba,ee,ed,dh,these are the best from what i read,had a mild 350 with dh rods worked great after a lot other tunning,dont forget about powerpiston spring,and secondary spring, there has to be alot of things working together right for a q-jet to perform.

Thanks, Avila. That's the place I was trying to remember (but couldn't). If they still sell them, they're one of the few who do.
