got the q jet on finally
 
I was so proud of myself, I got that easy out and bolt out with the welding the nut on trick. It did take about 20 nuts before I got one that had good enough penetration but it finally came out. I put the carb on and after a little adjusting it would idle pretty good. Seemed to have about the same power of the line and sometimes a slight bit more. No huge gains but I didnt expect any. The throttle is a lot smoother than the 2 barrel was. That means I wont have to shift into low range just to keep it from dying on the rough dirt roads on the way to our wheeling spots. I think the whole angle thing should be better too. I still need to lean it out a little so that it will start in the morning and when its not warm but overall Im happy. Im going to drive it around for a week or so and see how I like it and then decide whether or not to keep it on there. Can I take the electric choke off or wont that work? Also, I cant seem to find the mixture screws on the thing. Is all the adjusting done by bending those rods? Hey thanks for all the help guys. You have been a life saver more than once and I am proud to be a regular to this board.

The mixture screws are on the front of the carb, inside the base plate. If that is a late 70's, early 80's carb, there's a good chance that the screws are sealed from the factory. The books I have on the carb give recommendations on how to cut into the base plate and safely knock out the plug that keeps you from reaching the screws. But hopefully this isn't the case. There are two screws, for each primary venturi.

I live and die by the Qjet on my rig. Just threw on a shop rebuilt one a few hours ago. I abused mine till it took no more. They're awesome offroad. Good luck.

I put it on my 225 and yes it is a little too much carb but after some adjusting it seems to run pretty good. It doesnt bog down either. I think it bumped up my low end a little and Im sure it helped my top end.
