Welcome,
Now if you're looking for stock parts.. Then I say you should probably just hit Rock auto. But if it's Hi Perf parts you seek. You're probably better off going to Jegs or summit... If you're even thinking about changing carbs.. Let me say this. Edelbrocls are decent carbs.. Holly's are very good & extremely easy to work on & very reliable.. Now for the Chokechesters(rochester carbs) Well they're a very finicky carb... Can be a real pain in the ### to work on. But if you get them tuned right... They're hard to beat. Those Vacuum secondaries are bigger than my ex's mouth..
