    Hello.

    lve been resurrecting a 1972 Riviera that had been sleeping for many years.

    l rebuilt the carb as it was leaking (rotten throttle valve leaking. The good news is the carb doesn't leak anymore, bad news it doesn't run right............................i suspect it may have something to do with this that i found on the floor under the bench. Could some one be so kind as to tell me where its supposed to go on me quadrajet?

    Cheers.


    PS, some ''payment pics'';)

    Thanks for the help folks.

    l decided not to arseume that the last person that was in there knew what they were doing and went though it as far as i went before but this time checking instead of thinking it was right. l found that the 2 needles where hung from the inside rather than the outside, changed that and its running way better , not 100% right, but way better.

    Cheers
