Does anyone know of an air cleaner riser for a Rochester B carb? The intake diameter is 2-5/8". My stock air cleaner (if I have the right one) hits the valve cover and intake fuel line. I only need to raise the ac an inch so. I can't find a riser on line.

Do you have the insulator/spacer between the intake manifold and the carb?
I would imagine the stock air cleaner wouldn't hit the valve cover.

I did see one for a 216 and a 235 with some C-C dimension. I'll have to do some measuring to see if they might work on a 292.

Thanks, I get a lot more hits when I use insulator instead of spacer (and thanks 53sd).

So here is where I am at: I'm finding insulators (spacers) close but no cigar. My Rochester B, number 7024009 (verified by tag and stamped number on bottom of base) bottom bore measures 1-3/4", C-C bottom mounting holes measure 1-15/16".

A couple of things. The carburetor you show is about 1958 (or newer) vintage. They used a different type of air cleaner as opposed to what was used in 1949-54. Second, there are two different insulators. One for the 216 (2-11/16") and one for the 235 (2-15/16". I think that's what you meant as opposed to 1-15/16". You need a 235 insulator.

Yes, I did mean 2-5/16", thank you.
When I went to the Filling Station they listed the 235 insulator as being 3" C-C. Now I see at Chev's of the 40's they show the 235 insulator as 2-15/16" C-C (thanks pauldian).
Here is what I found at the Carburetor Doctor:
Rochester Carburetor Numbering System
By the mid-1960s Rochester carburetor numbers started to become mostly standardized. Here are a couple of Rochester numbers decoded as examples:

7026203

'70': until 1975, all factory production Rochester numbers start with '70'

'2': 1960's carbs generally have a '2' in this place ('3' in this spot means special emissions, eg. California)

'6': means theyear six of the decade (1966).

'203': means Chevy 4 bbl (Quadrajet); '3': means manual transmission. Odd number are usually manual transmissions.

17080212

'170': starting in 1975, most Rochester numbers start this way

'8': means 1980's


'0': 1980

'212': means Chevy 4 bbl (Quadrajet); since this happens to be a truck carburetor, it could be manual or auto trans


That would make my 7024009 carb a 1964, same as my 292 engine.
You are right, I need a 235 insulator, thanks Ram.

Thanks, and here's an interesting bit of description form that Speedway link:

2.94" carb bolt center to center, or what is commonly referred to as the ' 3" ' carb or 'big pattern' carb with the 2-15/16" carb bolt spacing

I had found gaskets and insulators on other sites but they either did not list dimensions or listed the 235 stuff C-C as 3" so I was not sure if they would fit. One place even listed the gaskets as fitting both the 216 and 235.
Thanks again Pauldian

You might want to try the Truck and Car shop in Orange California. They also have a shop in the east.
