    Hello Dave,

    I'd like to thank you for all of your help for guiding me concerning information on my 72 Chevelle 402 car. I did have another question though. What temperature sending units do I need and where are they located on my m20 402? I do have factory tac and gauges. What bolt does the oil sending unit line bracket go to on the bell housing? Thanks Dave,

    Hi Dave,

    Some of the other members suggested that you might be able to answer the questions I have about the Q-Jet I am rebuilding for my '72 SS 454 LS5 relevant to whether or not that setup had the AC solenoid original from the factory or not?

    Here is the thread I started and let me know what other info you might need to answer to help me determine if the '72 LS5 original Q-Jet with AC had the solenoid installed from the factory?

    Hello Dave You are a life saver and I feel real stupid.. The wire you told me about was tucked up behind the batt mount and with all the dirt/junk I never saw the thing. Went digging after your post and there it was IT WORKS Thanks John
