If you read the IMCA rules to the letter, you'd get the impression that you can'd touch the carbs one bit. The only thing they want to you to do is either buy a stock 7448 and cross your fingers or buy Keith Dorton's "special" carb. They imply that you are not allowed to do the mod's to a stock carb that the Dorton carb already has in it....all I can say is "gimme-a-****-break"...
The bottom line is, you are basically allowed to change air bleed sizes, jets, butterfly screws, and in case nobody else knew this...the Dorton carbs use an HP metering block that is meant for a 4bbl carb, with numerous mods in it that the avg. joe can't do....but THAT is legal, according to IMCA, since it came that way from the "factory".....

Sorry, ya hit a nerve there...


p.s. - If you'd like a killer 2bbl, just gimme a'll like the price too.

kp lugnut, how much for a reworked quadra-junk?

They start at $350 and go up from there. Depending on what you need and what your rules allow, of course....
We have at least one in stock right now (as I recall). We're a Holley and Rochester dealer, so getting them is painless, as well
as being able to supply any and all parts for any application.

At one time I saw a kit for Q-Jet that came with various components needles, jets, cams,etc. I canít seem to find them. Seems like some one said Edlebrock had something of what I am looking but I have not checked them out yet. Do you have any ideas what I am talking about??

We can put together "kits" of this sort for you, however, there is a current shortage of secondary metering rods going around. Other than that, most anything you need (in singles or in bulk) can be supplied.
There are other builders (Carbs Unlimited, for example) that offer kits like this, too.
The Edelbrock kits are not necessarily for the Rochester Quadrajet carb. They are made for the Edebrock quadrajet replacement carb,
which is not (IMHO) an oval track carb at all.
We also do much more to our quads for oval track racing than the average rebuilder, but that's not what you asked....:-)
