    Does anyone know the original jet, primary metering rod, and secondary metering rod sizes for the 1969 Stage 1 carburetor (7029246)? My 1969 Shop manual doesn't list these details for this specific carburetor.

    Thank you!

    It's hard info to turn up, but if the motor is rebuilt stock and without headers then for primary Jets & Rods I would start off with 76 and 47.

    Thank you Ken for your post. So all the 1969 400 cid carbs contained the same jets and rods, whether they were manual or automatic or Stage 1 or not. This also concurs with Lars Grimsrud's chart in his "Q Jet Tuning" paper.

    Here's the listing from my 1969 Service manual. IMG_20190702_141512695.jpg
