Carburetor Size?

Hey All,

I took what I thought was a pretty careful look at my carb. last night and the only thing I could see on it was "Holley" and some REALLY small text that are patent numbers...

How can I determine what dual pumper I have? I've been to the Holley web site and they list some model numbers and have some images of various carbs but I could find no number on mine....

I need to get a new choke mechanism as the sorta brownish colored plastic arm that appears to operate the choke plate apparently broke so I'm assuming that's part of my hard to cold-start issues...

Wes

To me, this forum is about love of inboard boats. It is about the sharing of information and, on a good day, some humor. It is not about post count, brand of boat, or any other superfluous labels that lend themselves to a false sense of superiority. Please, respect one another, try to pass on accurate information, and keep your eye on the ball.

they must have changed things. I was looking at my owners manual, and in '85 the 454's were running rochester quadrajets.
