Ok well first off advance autoparts did have a rebuild kit for the quadrajet and a new float to go with it. Its specefic for that year of car. Anyways why would I want to get rid of the carb and distributor. Well for one thing if the rebuild does not help out and the carb not work better cause it is old then I will put a holley on it and in order for this car to run wth a non computer type carburetor the distrbutor will have to be swapped out for a non computer controlled distributor and an HEI will work well in that regards.

The cost for a new computer type quadrajet is over 400 plus and they are still hard to come by. For half the cost with a little time I can just get a holley and good HEI and be done with it. That is why I mentioned that. Thanks to the other guy who gave me the link appreciate it.
