  1. How would I know for sure what carburetor was originally installed on my 1966 Charger? A former owner lost the original carb years ago; he installed an Edlebrock 4-bbl. The 361-cid V-8 was available with a 2-bbl only in '66. If I was to seek an original mid- to late '60's 2-bbl carb and intake manifold, how would I verify its authenticity? That said, I don't mind the 4-bbl carb on this car, but it must be stock, like the 4-bbl carb installed on the 383-cid engine option for this car. I'll be heading to the Mopar Nationals this weekend and plan to browse through the vendors and get me a genuine 1960's 4-bbl and air cleaner setup. I need help identifying the parts I want. Getting a right-side rear-view mirror is easy, the engine stuff is a challenge for me. Thanks, folks.
  2. Hello all, my grandfather bought a 1924 Oldsmobile Opera Coupe, it didn't come with a battery and although I know it is a six volt car, I don't know if it is positive or negative ground. Also, where is the serial number normally located? And the engine number? Another question I have, is about the kind of Carburetor we have on the car. I know the original was a Zenith but they could be replaced. The car has a Marvel-Schebler TSXU-832 Carburetor on it. Before we start digging in and getting the car running, I wanted to know if this carb was worth keeping? Any help would really be appreciated. Thanks in advance. Vintagecarguy.
  3. I have a lot of parts I picked up and most are NOS, many are in the box or have part numbers attached. The problem is I don't have a way of looking up these parts. How can I find out what they fit? I didn't get them for a project, I was just helping a guy that was moving and needed them gone right away.

    1963 Buick Electra 225

    Hello, Fellow Buick owners. I have a 63 Buick electra with 401 wildcat and Dynaflo trans. It's all stock. My problem is the original Carb it's junk. Been rebuilt twice and still junk. I've been warned that because of the kick down linkage I can't use any other carb. Can any one help me with this if you've changed your and with what to mantain linkage related to trans kickdown. Thank Dano
  5. Looking for a specific part for the Stromberg AA-2 carburetor on our 1937 Buick Roadmaster Series 80. The car has the 320ci "Fireball" I-8. We are interested in finding the specific part we need or an entire carburetor that we can use for parts. We have a rebuild kit already and the choke cable missing from the photos. What we need is the shaft that connects to the butterflyfly valve that the choke cable connects to. Ours was cut off and had a welded bend put on when the previous owner added a manual choke. We want to go back to the original auto-choke. If you cannot order the part for us, do you have any information as to where we may be able to get this part. We are willing to buy an upper carb to get it. See the photos attached for a better idea of what we need.
  6. My local shop, that employs mechanics that have their own antique project cars, has advised me that the carb on my '51 88 probably needs a rebuild. I saw that Fusick has that service, but they do not seem to cover my carb model Carter WGD (851). Also, I noticed a rebuild is not too cheap. (I know, this hobby is akin to standing under a cold shower tearing up $100 bills but we all love it anyway) I have found the Carburetor Shop online and hope to hear from them whether they have a repair kit for the Carter. If they don't are there other suppliers that might be able to help? What advice can people with more experience in this area (probably about 98% of the members) give me? Is this a difficult task, if I start what are the gotchas to avoid. Thanks in advance Stefan
  7. Greetings, I am involved in getting a 1925 Pierce Arrow dump truck back in service for national in July!. Especially need Pierce manufacture carburetor. We are also missing the generator. Also interested in any other parts. I have a 1917 Starter for possible trade. Thanks, Spencer 860.546.060five
  8. Motorcraft carb and Sheffield manifold from '79 Capri. $150.00 picked up North Jersey or delivered to Hershey.
  9. Hello, I recently had my Carter BB-1 updraft carburetor rebuilt. I have reinstalled it on my car (1930 Franklin) and the car is backfiring. The carb has both an idle adjustment and high speed adjustment. Can someone please give me some tips on how to get both adjusted properly? Thank you for your help! Bill
  10. I am looking for a Carter AFB Part # 3725S for a blown 289. I hope somebody out there has one for sale or can lead me in the right direction. Also are there other Carter AFBs that can be used in or adapted to work in a blow through super-charger application? Thanks a lot, Bernie
  11. This part number 7026040 is for all 1966 Buicks with a 401 or 425 cubic inch single carb Nailhead Motor and a Automatic Transmission. Also correct application for 1965 Rochester 4GC, part number 7025040. 1966 is the last year of the nailhead engine so later model Rochester (4 Jet) carb's will not work. Direct fit only. Thanks for looking.
  12. Hello, I am extremely new to restoring cars, but i have a passion to learn about them. This is my first car and currently I am simply trying to remove the oil pan to clean it, and i'm not sure what exactly is going on but i must be missing something really simple because i have drained the oil, and removed all of the bolts but still, no matter how i move the pan, there is always about two inches of clearance i still need to be able to remove the pan. the tye rods seem to get in the way but i have lowered and raised the car and nothing helps. is there something i need to remove to get to it? Another problem i have had is finding the correct part or parts to be placed atop the carburetor. right now i have to use a manual choke to start and run it, and the car only gets about 35mph. if anybody has information on those parts or even those parts for sale please let me know. I know this is a lot but bear with me for this last question: How can i match the engine and chassis numbers? i have both and i am pretty sure they should match, i just need concrete proof. Thank you all for your time.
  13. Hello, This is my first post. I have a friend who owns a really beautiful 1953 Chrysler New Yorker, it's restored but stopped for some years, and now we are refreshing it. I'm from the Canary Islands, from Spain, it's a little far from this Chrysler home but thanks to internet now this is not a problem. The issue that we're having we think it comes from the carburetor. It's a Carter WCD 935S. First the car failed to start when cold, and then it needed a long time warm-up procces before accelerating or run with it, because it stoped. I've checked the choke and now it runs cold good, with a exemplary iddle run, disconecting when warmed up, but when accelerating it hesitates a bit, and the exhaust expulses black smoke, so I think is too much gas. Do anyone have a spec sheet or a diagramm in order to know all carburetor components and its function? I've thinked about buying a new gasket set, but the only I found is for a Carter 2039S, it says 1953 Chrysler V8, but I don't know it both carburetor are the same or similars. Or even if there's another place to find a gasket set for the WCD 935S. Here is a pic of the car. We're keeping it as original as posible, according too with owner's whims. Hope you like it! Thanks in advance,

    carter carb bb-1

    I have purchased a carter bb-1 carb for 28 dodge six cyl. It is model 517s. I am hoping to identify the application for this carb hoping to be a good fit for this car. Below model # on tag is f6 with an 8, next square has a stamped out backward L,next square has a stamped out v. carb looks to be in rebuilt or nos condition. I have made an adaptor for intake. carb sits lower and back 1 inch to facilitate perpendicular flange bolt and to clear rear of generator. Thanks, ahead of time for any help.
  15. Hey all! I'm restoring a 1969 Riviera and was wondering if anyone knows where to get parts for it? Also, my engine would crank and turnover but will not start, what might be the problem? I took apart the carburetor and rebuilt it, and gas is going through the gas pump but somehow it will not go into the carb. Any ideas? Thanks! Oh, and what kind of tires did these cars use? tia! Ed
  16. What source, if any, exists for NOS nitrophyl (plastic) floats used in Motorcraft 4300/3450 carburetors? They have been discontinued in the aftermarket, and I have placed a permanent "watch" on eBay for t hem -- but to no avail. I will buy either OEM or aftermarket floats if I can locate them.

    RJH-08 Carburetor

    Does anybody know where I can find a float for a 1929-1930 Carter RJH-08 carburetor? It seems like the float is pretty basic. I was wondering if I have to restrict myself to the Carter carburetor or to the years 1929 - 1930 to find a float that would work. Would I be able to expand my e-bay searches to include other carburetors that have the same float?
  18. For anybody interested I added two new files to my web site. One identifies Carter carburetors by number and what they fit. The other file identifies which Carter number goes on a particular vehicle. Enjoy. Carter Carburetor Identification Mike's Carburetor Parts
  19. As I am about to embark on a carb rebuild adventure with my 55 CDV Rochester 4 bbl. I am open to any/all advice & tips. I have never rebuilt a carb before. The kit I am using came from Daytona Parts, so I presume at the very least I did do one thing right!
