  • Newbie A body guy here!

    Just purchased a 72 Demon 340 4 speed car. It was a 3 speed manual but now has a 4 speed (still have original 3 speed). It has matching numbers motor. it was originally GY8 gold with white bench seat, now has
    black bucket interior. Does this sound like someones old Demon? Let me know! I'm looking for a Thermoquad 6138s carb for it if anyone knows of one kicking round!

                    Welcome to the Style! I bought a new '72 Demon 340 with a 3 speed back in 1971, hemi orange with black bench seat interior. I did change the 3 speed out to a 4 speed, was a great little car! I regret having gotten rid of it, like I do so many of my cars over the years.

                    I'm restoring a '72 340 4-speed Demon now, hope to have it on the road in the next 2-3 months.

                        Thanks everyone! Yeah mine was originally a bench seat 3 speed car as well. I need to rebuild the carb. Seems most of the linkage on pasenger side of carb(choke side) is missing! Not well versed in Thermoquads so it'll be a learning curve unless I find a NOS one!

                          Demonator.....you have a PM!

                          I would be glad to help with the Thermoquad, so here is a good start:

                          http://www.imperialclub.com/Repair/L.../290/index.htm


                          Next question is.....do you have the original manifold and carb? There is very little in the line of choke linkage, only the choke well unit, and the arm going to the carb. (One Piece).

                          The first thing to remember about setting up a Tquad is that ALL linkage adjustments depend on the initial choke height setting.....and ALL must be done IN ORDER according to the service manual!

                          Thermoquads are the best carbs for general street performance, throttle response, and fuel mileage!!

                              I have original carb 6138s and intake, I also have an 6139 in pieces (for 340 auto) that was in a bag in the trunk. I would like to buy your 6138s if you have it so I dont have to fool around with trying to rebuild this one!
