I would be trying Gumtree to see if there is any Rochesters out there.   You never know, and Gumtree is free.

BUT, what is the base configuration on your engine?   Is it the Spread-bore type, or Square-bore?

I have an old Rochester 4CG Carb that is either from a 1961 Caddy engine or a marine 327 SBC, as I think it is marinised, but that might not fit.

Putting a Wanted to Buy posting in the USA CLC Message Board might find you more than one.  http://forums.cadillaclasalleclub.org/

Some 59 Cad owners in the US have ordered parts from Grant but replies to emails are becoming scarce. He may have moved from Australia to New Zealand. Any contact information would be appreciated so I can help these Americans.

Personally, I would be going with the original Rochester, simply because it was calibrated for the engine, and has the correct lever for the throttle actuation.

You don't say what model of Holley is on the engine, which could have an effect on performance, as there are so many different Holley configurations.

If it is one with the Vacuum Secondary, then that one would be best for street use with an automatic, but then again, the size and jetting could be way off for a 429 cube engine.   Most Holleys sold in Australia are for smaller engines like the 350 Chev and 351 Ford.

Hello Guys,
I have a 1965 Deville Convertible. It originally had a rochester carb for a 429 but was changed years ago to a holly, which needs servicing. Should i put a rochester back or get the holly serviced.
I appreciate the help
