Allright, so based on another topic I posted (slight fuel overflow issue of some type) I started poking around my carb... and not finding anything near what i was expecting. I am hoping for a simple answer but I believe the ultimate decision is just going to be purchasing a replacement Carb.
Quadrajet #17080213 (these markings are scored out with 4 deep lines so this build looks like it was on purpose
from what I have researched this mean:
1980, 4bbl, Q-Jet, Chevy, Manual Trans.
2032 CPX stamped under the quad#.
A few things are off here.. 1. its got a Pontiac style fuel inlet (i thought this was a part of the casting and not adaptable)... 2. my car is an automatic (th700r4 currently). 3. from what I have seen this carb would normally have a electronic choke, and thats not the case here.
But, after looking more... The carb looks like a stock 69 to my untrained eye

(ignore the exposed wires... thats a separate routing / protection issue I will take care of)
So, real world experiance... is this worth resolving whatever the fuel overflow issue is... or just buying a new quadrajet like this one from SMI
or another source.
