Trying to decode the ID number on a Quadrajet
7040204 FF dated 0429
The “0” in 7040204 = 1970 Chevy
But the assembly date code has me confused ?
"042" was posted in the ad by the owner
042 = 42 day of the year carb was assembled
9 = 1969
That would be way to early in 1969 to be assembled on a 1970
Is it possible the first number in the “042” is not a zero ?
This is the picture posted on Craigs list.... its hard to tell ?
If it’s a 3 then the unit was assembled in Dec of 1969 to be used on an early 1970 car
I'm trying to locate a 7040204 carb for a March 09 1970 engine build
If it is a 3 would this still be to early for the build date I'm looking for
Thanks for taking the time to look - Bob
