    Default Monojet help

    Guys i could use some help . We have an old forklift up at the shop where i am working and it has a chevy 250" six in it for power. The rochester mono jet on it needs a rebuild but i can't find anything for this particular carb. The number on it it 17056070 and that doesn't come up anywhere. My local Napa couldn't find anything even when he called his source. Its an unusual carb, no curb idle adjustment, a governor section at the bottom and I'm sure a few other oddities inside so I'll need the kit for this specific carb. Can anyone help me out?? Ken?? Mark???

    Looks like he prefers you to order online, but definitely call him. Looks like he has 2 different rebuild kits,

    I went to Greg's website this afternoon and looked at 4 kits. Each gives dozens of applications the kit serves. None of them showed my carb number. I'll call him and see what he can do but my feeling is that since this is for a forklift instead of a car it's going to be tough to find.
