because sending back is no option for me.
Maybe i make it myself easier when i choose a carb by Holley,
they also make a sort of rebuilt rochesters. Otherwise another economic carb that fits my standard olds 455 engine. And no bhp setup, gas is in Holland $ 1.90 a liter.

I notice that they offer a "Tomco" rebuilt carb. I haven't used any rebuilts in years but when I did, the Tomco carbs were absolutely the crappiest, worst done pieces of crap I'd ever seen. Maybe they are better, maybe not.

Sounds bad. If you decide to get another carb, try to find one from the same year, or at least close, I'd guess maybe '68-'72, with a 455. That should get you close, but if it still doesn't run quite right, you might be able to transfer the old metering components into the new one.
Be sure the new carb's choke setup (integral or divorced, heat or electric) is similar to your old one.

And something different:
Today i checked the id number and it is a rochester from 1970.
But my engine is from between 1972 and 1976.
If i need to buy a 'refreshed' carb, makes that any differents?
Or is the differents hardly noticeable

i dont think so, a revision is allready done last summer, but the pump plunger (i think thats the name for it) is still leaking. I don't know if it can repared, because it is the housing and not the pump.
Does anyone know something about this?
thanks for respond

|jimfulco||Any chance the original can be rebuilt? If so, that's what I would do. An original is already calibrated for your engine, while a new (or off-the-shelf rebuilt) carburetor is not. It might save you a major headache.|

|Koolaid||I can't give you any advice regarding the carb, but as far as RockAuto goes I order from them around once a month and have always gotten what I ordered in a timely manner for good prices. The one time they discontinued a product I had ordered I received a personal phone call the next day to inform me. If you decide to order from them they always send out 5% off codes in emails - check out fatwallet.com for a code and if you can't find it I'll dig up one of my old emails from them!|

Rochester from rockauto.com?
Hello, my rochester is after 35 years on his end (also after a revision) so I'm looking for a replacement.
My car is a 1970 olds 98 coupe with a (i believe) 1974 455 cid engine.
I saw this site:
It seems rather cheap (little bit important: shipping and tax to the netherlands is nearly $ 90,- )
I don't have a racecar so the same carb is ok.
Does anyone know this site and are they ok? Or can i better buy a holley or edelbrock on the summit site?
Ik hope you have some answers for me.
