OK it's that time...

I need to rebuild my Quadra jet

It's not the correct one for a 73
but it is out of a Vette( correction it came off of a Vette.. but I do not know for sure) guessing 76-79

There are torx type screws on the air horn

No metal tag

Stamped number on side of Air horn
52054R
but that doesn't seem to cross to anything

HAAAAAALLLPPPPP!
need to rebuild it today
How do I ID it to get the correct rebuild kit?!

The Q-jet numbers you are looking for are on the main body of the carb stamped in vertcally(in most cases) toward the rear, on the throttle linkage side. They should start 170...............
73 & 74 cars had a Rochester 4MV, 75-79 had Rochester M4MC. If you can get the #'s I can help you out. I suspect however if your 5054R numbers are the only ones there then you have a rebuilt carb from a commercial rebuilder. "R" generally indicates rebuilt on any remanufactured part.
