Dual Jet Blues

Post by Damon23 on Mon Oct 03, 2016 12:05 pm

I had some time this morning so I figured I put some gas in the Malibu and get it out and take some pictures for a possible for sale ad. Well, the car had other plans. It was hard to start, took a few times and some pumps of the gas to get it to start. It fired up after that, smooth as can be but with slight stumble. I pulled the car out to put the breather back on and noticed a drip on the intake. I pulled it back in and pulled the carb to find on the front corner on the bottom it looks like someone had used some sort of epoxy maybe to try to seal it up at one point. My problem is I don't want to pull the distributor, intake and put on a 4bbl when this car runs smooth as silk with the 2bbl. Then you get into brackets and all that other mess not to mention $375 for a carb, close to that for a intake and all the other nickel and dime things needed when I may sell the car. Does anyone have a lead on where to find a original or if the body has a crack can that be fixed?

Cant tell by the pics if you have a plug that worked loose or a crack. maybe you could clean it up and re-epoxy.

I've got 2 old cores, both are filthy & need overhauled. If all else fails let me know.
