Can anyone direct me to someone who can sell me a fuel jet (either new or used) for Holley model G carb that goes on my 17 T? Also, can anyone tell me what if any type of a difference would be between a #78 and a #29 Model G carb? I have two and each one has a different hand engraved # on the lower body stem above the nut flange?
Are you talking about the inlet or "float" valve or the removable fuel jet in the bottom of the carb?
They seem to have a variety of numbers engraved there, I think it was probably the worker who assembled the carb that marked his work.
If you're asking about the float needle and seat, they're sold by Lang's and others.
RV Anderson reproduces them, and they're nice.
If you're asking about the spray needle seat, you'll need to find someone who has a good one he'll turn loose of.
Maybe I did not explain it properly. am in specific need for the BRASS METERING ORIFICE, it is a brass screw in piece, that is covered by the rounded head screw on the outside/side of the body of the carb. Once installed the the idle tube attaches to tHe inside end and this little copper tube then drops to the bottom of the carb next to the metering jet needle. Only the bras orifice is what I need for a complete restoration of my carb that I have selected to utilize.
Can anyone provide a telephone number or mailing address for Russ Potter. I understand that he produces replacement pieces for the Holley Carbs?
Is this what you need?
Thanks to all of you for the assistance it has been most helpful. Even learned a few things that books never could cover, as experience overrules all other things, and you guy have the experience.
If no one has the parts readily made, and you have to one else to turn to, let me know. I can make the part in my shop and have all taps and dies needed for all threaded parts on any Holley G carb.
I do have some idle jets and venturi tubes made for the Holley G carb if any one needs help.
