'76 Skyhawk carb

I have a '76 Skyhawk with glass roof and the polished aluminum piece
the wraps around the top. It has been in the family since new,
belonged to my father-in-law, daughter and son-in-law used it and now
is back to us. It has been sitting silent for several years now is
time for rebuild. I'm rebuilding carburetor, Rochester 2GC, and in
need of a couple of parts. 2 idle adusting needle valves and high
idle cam. The two needle valves had been torqued to the point they
were bent and the cam was machined smooth, no more 'steps'. I've
called wrecking yards in the area, no luck there. Any suggestions?
Later, I'll need door panels, air cleaner and a few small items like
that.

Thanks in advance,

Lloyd

PS It does run.

Hey Lloyd,

I just bought a 1978 Buick Skyhawk with the C06 glass roof options
and "Targa" style roof band and a five speed. It is in need of
restoration, but came with a new glass roof. I got the engine running
with the bent idle adjustment screwws. I rebuilt the card, but all of
the pieces were intact. If you ahve pictures, post them in the photo
section of this site. I'll post my pics shortly.
