Re: Holley List 4088, C8AF-9510-AD, on ebay

There is a pair of metering blocks on eBay if anyone needs them. I’m not sure how to get a link on an iPad.

I agree that’s a lot of money. But you can’t get numbers matching from a service replacement block.

Re: Turn signal lever

There is also a difference in how they made the flat spot for loosening / tightening it. The original is squished like it went through a roller, while the repro is more like a machined cut.

Skinners GT-E book lists the secondary metering block as 4861. That’s an error right? Shouldn’t it be 4841?
