Rochester 4MV Quadrajet
« on: April 29, 2017, 04:29:31 PM »
Can anyone recommend where I may be able to find a Rochester 4MV Quadrajet carburettor (7028212 DH / 1188) for my 1968 Camaro SS RS 350ci manual. I live in the UK and am struggling to find one. Many thanks, Nigel

Nigel,

I purchased my date coded carb for my 396/325 car from Custom Rebuilt Carburetors (http://customrebuiltcarburetors.com/). The owner, Philip is a great guy to deal with. Depending on the date code your after it looks like they have several available for sale.

Good luck!

Thanks for all your help. I have managed to find a correct date coded Quadrajet from Custom Rebuilt Carbs. Philip was very helpful. The Carb has been completely refurbished and is in show condition. Kind regards Nigel

Hello all I'm new to this forum..so I'll just say I've read some of the things on here and was wanting to know  the yr of all your cars. That being said I'll into duce my self as dennis "CARB",I've been researching and rebuilding .Q-jets most of my  life....and cut to the chase....the green teflon  stuff didn't appear till late 69 early 70.it was GMS way of fixing a problem with the throttle shaft and choke shafts from locking up.and to give a smoother action between parts.So if someone says they have a 66 GM with the green teflon Q-Jet 4bbl then they got it off something else.most late model Q jets started with a 170 number and some early with  654.....705....756...I have a Q JET here with no numbers anywhere..but looks like someone used late model parts .this carb has 13 screws.and are all standard head where some had Phillips and some have torx.but I restore more than just GM products. I research everything related to carberation.let me know if this helped any one .or if you think I'm just blowing stink ....but I'm the one that's been doing all this since 1996.yall have a great day .

For niegel trying to find a 4mv Q jet  let me go look at the 150 Q jets on my shelf and  if I don't have it  you can try going to daytonacarbparts.com. they might be able to help you.

My intent is not to argue, but that isn't an accurate statement.  I have an original owner 68 with the original Q-Jet carb and it originally had the green stuff.  Built in June 1968.

Here is a pic of the carb before restoration:

Yes ...I gotten alot of flak from alot of people usually I re read before sending and just now re read what I had typed .... (I'm typing on a phone letters to small fingers to big )actually it teflon didn't apear till late 67  but wasn't used on throttleshafts till 68.so to correct myself you are right 68 ...in 67 they where used for the choke parts to find that this was a great idea 68 was the first yr for teflon on all parts that move.....MY BAD
