I put a Quadrajet on my monte it had a 2 brl half Q jet before. looked like everything was the same but now cables and kick down wont reach the carb. Was it the brackets or cables that are different???

Monte Carlo? I think you may be in the wrong forum. This one is for 58-60.

I will tell the moderator so he can move this thread to where it will get more and/or better answers.


Those who choose an automatic transmission want transportation. Those who choose a manual transmission want to drive.

I guess what you are saying is that you went from a Dualjet to a Quadrajet. From what I have seen, the hookups are identical.

Your Dualjet should have had the snap on type pivoting connections, right?
