    Does anyone with an intimate knowledge of the Quicksilver parts catalog know the contents of part number:
    1397-8583

    This is the metering rod & Jet kit for a 1991 7.4L. I am chasing down a carb issue and am suspecting the rods installed are possibly to blame. However I don't want to order the kit to find that I'll be stuck with duplicates.

    My carb has 70 primary jets 41 primary rods & CP Secondary rods.

    I took the leap of faith... in case it ever comes up again, the package contains the following:

    70 Jets
    42 Primary metering rods
    CL Secondary Metering Rods
    "K" Secondary hanger

    This cured my carb issue by bringing it all back to baseline.
