Qjet issues

I purchased an old truck on Friday that needs some TLC. One of the issues is the carb. The fuel inlet is stripped (super common on QJets). I see that they do make several types of repair kits for this. The self tapping kind looks promising. Any have any experience here?

I also do not know what kind of filter came with this carb...long or short. Is there an easy way to tell?

And just for the record...I am 6'1" and my eyes are level with the tops of the side mirrors! This truck is HUGE.

If its a Chevy carb(side inlet), then its most likely a short filter. Olds/Pontiac Q-Jets have a straight fuel inlet that is longer.

If youre new to Q-jets, I'd suggest you pick up a copy of Cliff Ruggles Q-jet book. He walks you thru the whole tuning procedure, or you can send it to him and he'll do it for you.
