I believe the 575 throttle body is same throttle body that was used on the Chevy 454ss trucks as "Quinlin" here on OSO had his rebuilt here in Tulsa and can probably provide more info.

That is where I got all of the parts to rebuild one( o rings and gaskets) was at Chevy. If it is salt look at the Manifolds water passages. Mine were damn near eatn thru .
