Hi all- my engine rebuild is coming along, but during disassembly, I found the metal rod that is supposed to activate the secondaries via vacuum sitting in my valley pan... and when I simulate that action, it falls right out quite readily. is it incorrect? am I missing a retainer clip or something? Thanks!

What carb? A Holley VS has an external retaining ring. Qjet should be link locked in place so it really can't fall out unless bent significantly or something is improperly installed.

Bowties are for Pee-wee Herman. "Chevy": even the name sounds cheap, but not as cheap as your Pontiac will be with an LS transplant.
