 The Q-jet on my 72' I believe has been changed. The reason why the TCS system is not correct. The number on the one I have is 17054920. Does any one have a list to determin what this fits and if it can be matched to the engine if re-built to spec?  The one that is for that car/engine according to the Black Book is, 7042203 or 7042903.  The one on the car I believe is for a vehicle after 1976. I would like to have the correct one, seeing all the other numbers are correct, to the best of my knowledge.    THANKS   Mark

Yes any number that starts with 170 is a 75 and newer.  I just finished rebuilding a 7042208 carb that is off a 72 truck. rejeted it for a 7042203 manual trans. (KNOW ONE WILL EVER KNOW). If you go to swapmeets look for these code numbers. 7042 is a 72 year and 203 is manual trans and 202 is automatic.
I will e-mail you the codes to brake down the carbs.

    THANKS Guys, I E-mailed the junkie. Nothing on his E-Bay site. I may have it re-jetted when re-built. Longs it runs right and gets decent gas mileage I do not care. Would be nice to have the correct number on the bowl though.  Mark

   THANKS DAN, MUCH appreciated.  What does the  "NB2" stand for?  If you find a 203 laying around without a home let me know. Preciate your input/assistance.

Mark:  The info I sent you came from this web site  http://www.corvette-world.com
Ther is a lot of information on that site for any corvette!!  Check it out.  I am not sure what "NB2" means.  I will find out and let you know.  I'm sure it refers to a transmission type.
Dan

Hey guys,
I'm having trouble with my qjet after having the engine reubuilt with a mild cam and better heads.  I took the car to my mechanic to have the carb rebuilt and he said the numbers on the carb indicated it was for a 305 and I have a 350.
I've tried to find info on an 80 vet on the sites shown above but can't seem to find any carb info.  If someone has some info I would appreciate it.

The BLACK BOOK on vettes should have the carb numbers listed in the section for your year. If you do not have one, go to the AMAZON.COM site and get one that may not be currant for new years, but will cover the older years.  I will look in mine and send you numbers by PM if you want. What other info do you need?  Mark

Mr. First,  According to the BLACK BOOK you HAVE the CORRECT carburator. The "1" is for 1976 and later. The second "0" is for the year. The "204" is for auto trans and 190 hp. DO NOT get rid of the carb. If you get a reputable technition to rebuild it, it should work.  Even if you do not use it and replace it, keep it around.   Mark
