Not mine.

VIN Y float bowl (aka main body), 800 cfm E4MC with Olds front feed filter style. For 1984 carbs and earlier. 85-up roller VIN Y carbs were slightly different. Just for reference, these were $425.67 list price at the dealership. So if you're rebuilding an E-jet carb and you have some screwed up threads (especially the lean stop screw threads), or it's warped, damaged, etc., and you can use this to fix your stuff, it's a screaming good deal. 83-85 VIN 9 was different in the primary jet area. Afaik, that's the only difference between the VIN Y and VIN 9 of that era (flat-tapped E-jets), but not sure. So if you have a VIN 9, you should be able to just swap out the primary jets in theory, and be good to go. Comes with VIN Y jets and check ball/screw, front filter and fitting, curb idle screw/spring, secondary jets installed (just little washers basically), and vent tubes.

That is a good deal for a unmolested main body.

I bought one thinking I'd just stash it in case I needed it for something. Never know. Well, apparently with my carb refurbish it ends up I just may need it to save a hosed main body.

But nobody was acting on it so I went ahead and bought the other one, too.

So when are we going to see you & the collection on Hoarders, G-Body Olds edition?
