I purchased a carburetor from guaranteed carburetors 10 years ago and could never get it to work properly. I sent mine in for the core which was a very bad mistake. The carburetor they sent me was from a 1984 gmc truck.
When I disassembled it recently the rich mixture stop screw was screwed in all the way and frozen up. I could never turn it to adjust.

I purchased a 1981 carburetor 17081228 1321 FOX several years ago. Now I am rebuilding it to install on the Vette. IMG_20210131_141954.jpgIMG_20210212_214101.jpg

I have a couple of questions. 1-The manual says not to install the choke gasket because of grounding issues. I've used it with a gasket in the past with no issues. 2- Does anyone use the plastic insert that installs below the m/c solenoid?

I have another Carburetor 17081228 1321 FOX that I am going to be rebuilding also.
The 1984 GMC Carb on the Vette, will be for sale minus the choke pull off and the a/c idle solenoid.

I've never had to do any carb work on ours yet. Seems like the choke would be grounded through the screws.
