Can anyone tell me if Edelbrock Quadrajet Parts will work on good ole rochester quadrajet's?! I'm new to the game all input would be grand.

No, not the critical ones, such as metering rods, etc...

But replacement traditional quadrajet parts are still available. We stock many of them...

I'm looking for a good rebuild kit and an accelerator pump! I don't have the numbers off of the carbuerator right off hand, but can have later. Is there any place to order these parts online? thanks

David,
I can make you up a kit, but I'll need the carb # you have as there are numerous variations in the parts needed based on what quadrajet it is.

Let me know, and I can get you the stuff you need.

17084258 is the number on my Carb its off an '84 oldsmobile Delta 88. I also have a carb off of a '68 GTO I'll get the number off of that one later. What's your thought's on these 2 Carbs? Are they worth rebuilding? They are going on a fresh rebuild of a 350 with an RV cam nothin to spectacular. Thanks again. David

If the one off the Delta 88 is an emmissions carb (has the plastic sensor fitting on the top of the front of the carb), then it won't be usable as a racing or performance carb.
I'd go with the '68 model, as it will be the better more versatile choice.
We can supply parts for either one, or both, just let me know.

I always figured that the edelbrock Q-Jet tuning parts were interchangeable. What was different on them? the outside sure looks like the same casting.
