Just want to know a bit about this carby.
Rochester quadrajet 17059595
Wot year it is and wot car it came from, auto or manual.
Do a search on google, they got some good sites in regards to IDing Quaddys.
Iv tried google already that's y I put the question on here.
17059595 CXL is blue 308
Thx NAAF. Least I know it's from a blue. But iv learnt that 17059595 was on HQ,J,X,Z red's aswel that's y I want to know wot the 1803 means??
Is it an M4M or an E4M?
Excuse my ignorance NAAF but wot do u mean. Should that b on the carby sumwhr.
Yes, it should be at the base of the barrel somewhere.
Apperently the 1803 is the date stamp in Julian, 180 being the day of the year, 180 of 365, and 3 is the year, so my guess would be its 30th June 1983.
Thx mate, very helpful. Tho there is no M4M or E4M I can c. Wot do they mean anyway.
That is the series of the carb, from '65-'75 it was a 4M, from '75 to about '82 or '83 I think, it change to the M4M then after that it was the E4M. The difference is the choke and butterfly shaft. They aren't interchangeable.
Just found more info that contradicts the 1803 date, this new info tells me that it is a 1979 4BBL out of a manual. But it is an American site, so it is probably the original destination for the carby but it was used on something different over here. I would still go by the info that it is a 1983 blue motor carby.
Thx once again mate. U sure know ya stuff. U deserve a beer
I can't take all the credit. Google helped....
on sabbaths thread there are pics of the two diff styles

ever since the day he was born, fluffy knew that he was not like all the other 454's. "GO AWAY and play in your silverado C3500" they would all say to him, laughing and snickering as he slowly loped away in his truck with his lowly 530NM of torque. but one day, one day, Fluffy knew he would grow up to power a 66 impala, and would be the talk of all the other 454's.
