Rochester Quadrajet Carburetor.
Quadrajets were used as original equipment on many vehicles from 1965 to 1990. Over 100 million have been produced.
The QJet is a large 4 barrel carburetor that has a small primary side for fuel economy and good emissions and a large secondary side for good performance. QJets have a maximum airflow of from 750-800 cfm. Because the secondary side of the Qjet opens according to the airflow requirements of the engine, the same basic carburetor size can be used on a large range of engine sizes. The basic 750 cfm QJet casting is used from 231 CID to over 400 CID - the big secondary air valves open only as the engine breathes. For example, on a mild 350 Chevy the air valve will never open all the way - because the motor can't use more than 600 cfm or so.
There are three basic types of QJet: the original 4M (starting in 1965), M4M (1975 onward) and E4M (from 1979). All QJets had automatic chokes, of which there are two basic types - integral (choke coil on the carb) and remote (choke coil on the manifold). 4MV carbs have the choke coil on the manifold and 4MC carbs have it on the side of the carb in a housing. An M4MC carb has a choke coil on the carb; and M4ME carb has the same type fo choke coil, but with an electric heater element in the choke coil.
Choke parts, primary metering rods and throttle shafts are not interchangeable between 4M and M4M carbs.
Unlike most other 4-barrel carburetors, the Rochester Quadrajet 4-barrel carburetor allows the throttle plates to be opened wider, making the carburetor more efficient. The Rochester Quadrajet 4-barrel carburetor also creates a better throttle response time and has a centrally-located float that gives excellent fuel control.
