Hello again,

Is there anyone of us out there that is a carburetor specialist?    
Is there anyone out there that has any Rochester 2G carburetors?
More specifically, the ones I'm looking for have a 1-3/8 "(1.375") 
bore. I'm also looking for another one that has a bore of 1.408" (i 
think). These came on buses, travelalls and suburbans as well as 
some larger trucks.. I'm not sure what years these were produced 
but I think it was around 1959 -60??? What is a travelall? Anyone out 
there got any of these things? I want to put one on a hopped up 
inline and need the bigger bore to get the proper flow caracteristics 
for this big  engine. I may have to send it out to a carburetor 
specialist for venturi and jet reworking.  I hear they can do a 
number of things to get better performance and can even trick it into 
thinking the flow is different than what it is. I'm not too up on 
this carburetor jargon but got into a discussion with a carburetor 
technician and he had the right spiel to get me thinking I might 
want to do something with the carb... Let me know if you know 

51-3100 AD Stocker
(Maybe soon to be hopped up)
oletrucks is devoted to Chevy and GM trucks built between 1941 and 1959
