I have a stock 350 with correct intake and carb. Rochester 7042203. Once I found someone to rebuild it to specs, which entailed a trip to southern California for the carb, it runs VERY well for what I'm doing with it. Your choices are slim for something else. Carter AFB is one "IF"you can find one. The other is a Holley. Keep us in the loop, as to what you decide.
Yes I noticed that Jegs had Rochester carburetors. I was wondering if that would give me good stock drivability. I am not looking for super performance. I want my wife to be able to get in it and go with no issues. Thanks

You could go with an LT-1 style aluminuminum manifold with a Holley carb, but I hate Holley carbs for street use. Personally, I think the best choice would be the later L82 aluminuminum manifold, with the Quadrajet carb. Bolts on, and shouldn't have any hood clearance issue at all. my .00002

Here's another vote for q-jet. Assuming they're re-built properly with a good kit and all the right stuff done to 'em (i.e. new bushings for the primary throttle shaft if necessary) you can't beat 'em for street-ability. And they're not too bad on mileage since the giant secondaries only kick in when you get into it a bit. (That is if you can avoid getting into it too often. )
Can't remember, do the regular old E-brock performers (dual plane) fit under stock hoods with stock air cleaners? I think it's close if remember correctly. Performer is probably easier to find than the L-82 aluminum......

Q-jets are my favorite. I tried a Holley Q-jet replacement back in 1980 when they hit the market....I cannot remember it's name? Anyway, gas mileage was off big time and it did not have the same power under wide open throttle.
