Broke off threaded rod from stove pipe carb. Is this bad?

Recommended Posts

So I was installing my freshly rebuilt carb on my 64 Riv when I accidentally overtightened a nut and broke off the threaded part. See before the rebuild pic and after the rebuild with broken threaded part. 

 

What is this part and is there a fix or do I hafto replace the whole piece?

That is the choke housing.

 

Appears to have been previously broken, and a brass repair fitting inserted. Originally, the housing was zinc alloy without the fitting.

 

It may be possible for a good machine shop to remove the existing repair fitting, and machine and install a new one; but you will need to remove the choke housing from the carburetor.

 

I cannot read the number on the carb. It might be easier to replace the choke housing with another from the exact same numbered carburetor.

If it is a stock carb,  I probably have it. I seem to have 3 or 4 1964 Riviera carbs I have collected. I will check later today.  It would be fairly easy to change.  

Take the choke housing off and there are 3 screws holding the parts on.

 

Tell me the number on the carb.  It should be a 3635.

It’s alive!

 

i rethreaded the port on the housing and put on a flare nut that works with the stove pipe bolt. 

 

Thanks for the input guys!

All the stove pipes I've seen on any car were covered with a fiber sleeve, if they had any covering.
