Need "7040255" quadrajet and Fat W-31 balancer!

I need the 1970 model quadrajet part #7040255 stamped vertically on drivers side of carb. I also need the harmonic balancer for a Ramrod or W-31. It is thicker/fatter than the normal Oldsmobile small or big block balancer so it is easily identified. I appreciate any help or leads to acquiring these parts. Please be reasonable, this is not a concourse resto, I just want the correct parts back on my car. E-mail cdsmonte@msn.com .Thank you in advance for your help, Chad.

Unhappy

Those two parts are the holy grail of Oldsmobile parts.....


Being reasonable would be $3000

I appreciate that J but this post is 3 years old and you see how many and what kind of responses I have gotten during that time!

yes, the carb is specific to the 70 W-31. the distr is the same cast # as the 310hp 350 4bbl motor (curve is diff for W-31 though).

both pieces pop up every now and then. but sorry Chad, my other balancer isn't for sale

7040255 carb

I have a complete 70 W-31 Carb that had a rebuild kit put in it about 10 years ago. I can send you pictures of it with the center section showing the correct unmachined area where the power piston was supposed to be.

Hey Chad,

How are you doing? It's been many months since our last contact.

I'm selling my 70 W31 F85 post, for $8500, if you know of anyone looking? I found the correct BOP 12 Bolt diff and installed it.

Cheers,
Barry
