Need choke thermostat cover

Post by Joe73 on Mon Apr 03, 2017 7:38 pm

Anyone have one of these ? Mine disappeared in storage right off the manifold. Must have gotten bumped and popped off. Its for a 4 barrel Rochester carb. Cheap little part but I'd rather have original. http://www.ecklerscorvette.com/corvette-carburetor-choke-coil-cover-1970-1974.html

Also looking for the set of 8 original valve cover bolts with the weird shaped washers and plug wire clips if you have them. Had them in a bag, but also MIA, for now. I know they'll pop up. For a small block.

Message if you have anything. Pics would be great. Thanks

Many thanks to eboklund73 who hooked me up with the choke parts I was looking for. Eric is a real gentleman to deal with.

Still on the look out for the 8 original valve cover bolts with washers and plug wire clips.

Thanks

I checked an old 350 I've got for the clips. 1 broke, 1 missing, 1 bent. These are for the hei wires. You looking for the point type wires? I've probably got them somewhere.... You going with original q-jet & manifold on your build?

Yes, its for a points ignitions setup. I'm not going original with the motor or the internals of it. Just everything else except the wheels. As I go through my original parts I find there are some small things (like these bolts and wire retainers) that I cant find. I know I have them somewhere but havent seen them since the 80s. Just glad I kept all my original parts like the manifold with carb and dizzy, exhaust manifolds, air pump, etc. Have it all in boxes.

My original block will contain 10.3:1 compression, 292 duration flat tappet, rpm air gap, holley 750 vacuum, aluminum heads, etc. Should move along nicely.
