Welcome to the Corvette Forums at the Corvette Action Center!




is there any differance, at all, in the OEM carbs on 1979 L82s and std engines. i'm either going to rebuild or get another carb and i want to know before i get the wrong one. we all know how counter people are at the parts order desks and i want to be sure the jetting/mettering system is proper.
thanks, mike
The part numbers are different for each engine. That would most likely indicate that the carbs are at least jetted differently. I would rebuild my current carb if it seems to be jetted close to correct. Any local shop can do a proper rebuild. Make sure that they put new bushings in the throttle shafts though.
thats what i thought,but the rebuilders,all of them, only list one number for rebuild kits and only one number for new or rebuilt carbs. i guess if i get a standard rebuild kit and don't mess with the metering rods or jets i should be okay,right? RIGHT!!
