    look into carburetor adapters for your intake carburetor base. this may help with using other carbs.

    Carter, Stromberg, and Zenith all offered A/M (aftermarket) replacement carburetors specifically for the Chevrolet 235 engine. Many are very close to being bolt-on swaps.

    My throttle body casting # is 7003538 and the only nunber I could find on the top part was 7136? I am trying to figure out if I can use this as a substitue carb for the one I have on there now. Please help! Thanks.

    Try looking for a Rochester Monojet from the late '60s or '70s. GM used them on just about every 4- or 6-cylinder car and they can be had for cheap, cheap, cheap. They are decent carbs too. I ran one on my '62 Chevy with a 250.
