Title: Choke Edelbrock Performer RPM Q-jet
Post by: hrlyfxdl on November 27, 2017, 09:52:56 PM
Question regarding chokes, and I thought I'd seen a string on this before but I can't relocate it. I have a stock Quadrajet carb for my car, 7028213, and I also have a NOS choke kit for that carburetor. I had purchased a Edelbrock Performer RPM Q-Jet intake for rebuilding a 350 to put in my car. When I mount the carb onto the intake, the NOS kit won't work/reach from the platform on the intake to the linkage on the carb for the choke. I then purchased the choke kit from Edelbrock (1931) and the choke rod won't work/reach.
Has anyone ran into this, options of another kit or rod to use? I'd like to stay with the NOS kit and keep it looking as original as possible, but not sure that's gonna work. Any help or input greatly appreciated. Thanks

I have a 2000 PAW catalog that list an Edelbrock p/n 7104 is for the rod only.

That part number is the actual intake I have. Funny your catalog says the rod for that part number.

Sorry. Correct number is 9172.

Ah, Ok Russ. Thanks, much appreciated. I'll give that a try and see if that rod works, and report back, just in case somewhere down the road someone else runs into this.
