Make sure you pay attention to the well plugs on the bottom of the bowl. Old well plug gasket material is still stuck on these; either clean/inspect and make sure you use a kit with the replacement gasket, or remove the soft plugs, drill, tap and plug the bottom of the wells to prevent gas leaking  back out out of the carb into the engine. To me, that's always been the worst design feature of the Quadrajets - otherwise, they are great carbs, easy to work on and last forever.

Just my opinion -

Anyway to fix the well plugs without drilling or removing the carb and rebuilding it?

Good point about stripe application Mark. I had understood that Fisher did some striping in the paint shop (from the Assembly Process article reference to Z28, and particularly the Z10 and Z11 which had D96) and because the D90 hockey stick stripe was broken up across the leading door edge (paint and decal). But as the front sheet metal was painted by Chevrolet, it would make no sense to paint (for example) the rear, and door section of front, D96 pinstripe by Fisher, and the fender part by Chevrolet. Thanks for pointing that out!

Also read that about the bases. Many other GM models had further different jack designs (for example some Chevelles used a T-section mast and base) and there are subtle differences between otherwise similar mast designs, such as the mast length, and the orientation of the notch in the base recess.
I assumed that these differences were to avoid interchanging model-specific parts over the years, but from a design, manufacture (and now restoration) point of view, it would've been far simpler to have one mast, base and mechanism design, and just have a load rest hook to suit each model. Maybe the accountants intervened and argued cost savings by making each jack model-specific rather than generic!

Thanks John. With that amount of items required at assembly plants across the country, you'd have to think that GM would've had multiple suppliers to limit the possibility of a supply shortage.

It looks like the car was built about the fourth day of production, via the work order #.
It was always a ramp-up, esp for a new model.

Has 02B body tag; VIN tag N670055. Both tags have been removed. One or both are not original to the car.

Maybe JohnZ would know but with the number of GM cars being built it would be hard to imagine how many of those grommets were consumed each day.

Don't know how the suppliers lined up, but GM needed 25,000 of those grommets every day.

Thanx Mark and Tim,
Now we know a lot more regarding this - code! Smiley
