    quadrajet replacement-gctid801184

    I have been laid up and just now getting back to my carb problem. Its a 94 2655 with a sick carb. Everyone told me that Holley was the way to go so I tried one. Problem is the carb hits the housing for the thermostat.

    If I try to raise the carb everything else is has to be rigged to get it to work, linkage etc.

    1) Has anyone else had this problem and if so how did you correct it?

    2) Has anyone used a different carb with better results?

    Edelbrock 1409, and you won't have the float bowl issue.

        And the Edelbrock in my experience is a better carb.

          I have a good used 1409 with flame arrestor and owner's manual that I can sell you if you like. I've switched to diesel engines so no longer needed.

                The Edelbrock would be a good choice. You will need an adapter or manifold swap as you may know to go from spread bore to square bore. Don't use an open style adapter, they have their uses but a heavy boat isn't one of them. Use a divided spacer like Edelbrock 2696. Since all the Quadrajets are old getting a good one is getting hard. Stay away from mass rebuilders. I grew up with Quadrajets so I am biased and can do my own work. New carbs always seem to work better anyway. And have a warranty. Oh and the Holley carbs have had their own issues.
