Hi

Lars is a great man. He helped me regardless of the distance ( overseas ).
It's a pity that he left this forum, but he isn't lost, just with a other forum. He must have had a good reason to do so .
And this is not the only good instruction sheet he wrote. Just think about the ignition adjustment. Did that make a difference to my BB !

For the latest papers from Lars you have to request them from the man himself. some of the papers you find around the net are old and have been revised. Lars does not endorse any of the papers that are posted on the net.

Default My apologies!

My apologies to dstaley and greg75vette, sometimes you just have to go elsewhere to get the answer. Now that I think about it, I've done the same. stepman I've copied Lars posts and you are correct he has revised some of his posts, but the main body and the procedures seem the same but sometimes with just a little different wording.
It seems to me that Lars Grimsrud would recommend that you start with the correct carb for your motor and then rebuild it to stock specifications and then if needed modify it from there.
I took his advice and all is fine for me.
I'm very grateful that we have DWncchs and Willcox to help us with our gauge and other problems. These guys go above and beyond to help us all out. You won't find that kind of help anywhere else.
In closing I just want to say 'Thank You' for all the members that have helped me solve my problems and as far as I'm concerned this is the best forum. PG.

Now that I know for sure who we're talking about... Lars has been a great resource for the GTO community for 30 years or so. I guess one make couldn't contain him?

Not to diverge... but what's the limit on how big of a SBC build you can use a Q-jet on? And isn't there a higher CFM Q-jet clone out there to handle the bigger inch builds?

On the Performance Years board you can find several people running them on Pontiacs larger than 455 c.i. running deep into the 11's in street cars weighing over 3500 lbs.

Many of my papers are posted at various locations on the 'net, but none are kept up-to-date with current revisions. For a current listing of available papers and current versions of the papers please e-mail me directly:

the largest Q-jet clone i know of is 850 CFM and the bigest real Q-jet is like 800 CFM i think so not much of a difference

Have removed computer controlled quadrajet and replaced with a manual. Carb is No 7045504 a 1975 model. Is this compatible with my 350 sbc in my 81?

why dont you start a new thread rather than adding on to a thread from 2009?
what do you mean by compatible? the jetting and rods, etc. will be different.
