    So my 54 Chevy has developed a fuel leak on the carb. The motor in the car is a 57 235 that had been replaced some time back in the 80's. I don't know if the carb on it is from 1957, or 1954. I know the kits are different for each one and I have to order it online so I want to be sure. I attached some pics of the carb in question, and a arrow pointing to where the leak is from. I can find no ID number on the castings. Only Rochester logos.

    Thanks in advance for any insight.

    Its a Rochester B with manual choke. Is there a brass tag anywhere on it?

    that leak is spill over down the accelerator pump link. It can be reduced by lowering the float level. But I really don't think you can ever stop occasional drips from there.


    There is just a slot in the gasket that helps keep the gas where it belongs. it is not leak proof.
