Rochester 1 barrel

Recommended Posts

  Hi Guys, I'm hoping someone can help, The V6 in the Olds has a Rochester 1 barrel carb. I think the one from the 51 Chev kit will work but I can not find where the fuel line goes.  If you have the answer that would be vey helpful. Thanks.

A 1 barrel on a v6?  Sure it isn’t a 2 barrel carb?

That was my first thought too. I’ve worked on a lot of old Buick v-6 engines with carburetors over the years and don’t remember seeing a 1 barrel on any of them. (Could be memory problems though) I have also experienced someone thinking a 2 barrel with the single round upper throat was a 1 barrel. However, I looked it up and Buick made a Fireball v-6 with a 1 barrel carburetor.
