    May have one. I know I have a 243, but not sure of the year. I'll check tomorrow.

    I know I have a 7040245. May have some 243’s in this last purchase. Still going through them all.

    I think a 7040243 was on 70 Riviera 455 with standard transmission. The 7040245 was for a 70 350 S/T.

    7040245 is definitely 350 manual transmission - took me a while to find one. I believe 7040243 is a std. 455 manual transmission.

    I may have a 7042942 MF 1752, but you would have to wait till OCT. before I can get home to check....

    Yea standard 455 4speed carb, I have one I'm putting together for my X. Exact same carb as the Stage 1 carb from what I can tell, same calibration and top lid as the 0246

    Mark, what's the date code on your 0245 carb? I can't imagine there were many batches of them - 243 & 245 were probably the rarest '70 carbs made.
