    "I replaced the qjet with a qjet, (purchased from west marine, was in a rush, didnt want to wait for shipping...) instant I put it on the engine fired like a champ. It seems some people like the edelbrocks better than the qjets, like some people like brunettes better than redheads, but I have had no problems at all with the new carb, and it was as easy as changing a lightbulb."
