Please Help With 7th Digit 17059298 Qjet CARB

I can not find what 9 means anywhere, Does anyone have a book with this designation. I know what 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 mean. 8 is checker or marine. Best I can find is maybe means "special". Which means what? Chev? moon rover? AMC Pacer? Yugo? Please help. It has a paper rebuild tag, but I don't know by whom or what the no's mean on that either. Maybe a mix-mosh of body parts? 17059298 2009 1979 automatic GM? .......

I see nada that explains the OP's question, though. Nor does anything I personally have (some of which differ slightly from the wiki info), show a "9" in the 7th. position.

I'm curious where fast68 found it.

Perhaps try over at Cliff Ruggles forum - he lists an "8" in that position as a checker/marine application: http://www.cliffshighperformance.com...carb_ID_2.html

In any event, the app means little to nothing in re the rebuilding and tuning of the carb- unless you are doing some sort of numbers matching deal.

A sharp Q-Jet guy can tell by the fuel inlet, linkage, the venturi, the primary needles and power piston, etc. what the carb came on, within a very narrow range. I'm guessing you're not one of these individuals.

FWIW, Ford also used the Q-Jet. They came w/a tag under an airhorn screw. What (if any) numbers were stamped on it and what they refer to is anyone's guess.

What makes you say fast68's "making up answers"? That's a pretty ****ty thing to say, being as how you know nothing of what he may have for reference material or knowledge.

'Preciate the clarification. Mercury the automobile never occurred to me, I can see how that would throw you a curve.

But that's not why I brought up Ford having used the Q-Jet. There was a post from a guy that had a 429 CJ w/one that was posted here in the last couple days so it was fresh on my mind.

But, since there were 429 CJ's installed in Mercury Cyclones in '70 and '71, they'd have a Q-Jet!
