Secondary Well Plug Fix Q1742/3

Replacing the original secondary well plugs on Rochester Quadrajets with our o-ringed plugs is a quick and easy way to fix a common problem plaguing most Quadrajets.

If you have to crank your engine over alot to start your engine after it has sat overnight, you probably have leaking secondary well plugs.  This issue is very common with Rochester Quadrajets and now its easy to fix! 

Other ways people have tried to seal the leak:
Putting epoxy on top of factory well plugs does not seal the leak, Tapping well bore and installing pipe plug with epoxy does work, but its alot of work and what happens if you use too much epoxy and it plugs or restricts the secondary passages??  Do it once and do it right, use our O-Ringed plugs.

How to Install Secondary Metering Well Stop Plugs-

1.- Drill hole in center of plug,  install sheetrock screw and pull plug straight out using auto body slide hammer or grab screw with pair of dykes pliers.
2.- Slightly chamfer plug well opening and ensure plug bore is clean and burr free.
3.- Apply light coating of engine oil to "O" ring and install.  Throttle body will ensure plug cannot slip down when installed.
