    Anyone know of a reputable seller for a quality rebuild kit for the Rochester carb atop my 1970 Buick Electra 225 455cid V8?

    I’m looking for all gaskets, accelerator pump, floats etc., complete rebuild kit.

    Still in business, answers emails and/or returns phone calls?

    Thank you,

    Cliff Ruggles probably has the most Quadrajet experience around, and is a member here. He should be able to set you up with what you need, including parts that normally wouldn't survive the ethanol in today's gasoline.

    Tomco makes a good kit. I just bought one a month ago from a federated aut parts store.

    My kit will be the most complete and correct in this industry and many of the parts in them are NOT the same as others are selling. No matter what "label" is on your kit they all come from the same sources as there are only two main distributors left in this industry.

    All Buick kits will contain the "high flow" N/S assembly with no "windows" to help prevent drain back after shut down. The accl pump is the later variety with a custom Viton seal and springs to improve fuel delivery. I went into the parts business full time and currently having over 35 parts made for my rebuild kits. My kits are listed here, there is a lifetime warranty on the accl pump and N/S assembly. I also ship overseas and to Canada daily but you must contact the shop directly to order as there is no "flat rate" shipping option out of the US.

    Spoke with you on the phone yesterday and ordered the rebuild kit.
    Great talk by the way! Very much enjoyed it.

    Looking forward to getting into and fixing the old, leaky carb.

    Thank you,
