WTB - Carter carb

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to get my 1931 Chrysler CM6 back to the original setup.  It should be a carter BB-1 updraft.

 

Who has one that they would like to part with?

 

Thanks

Time for an update.  I just got off the phone with a guy who says the Carter BB-1 will not fit. He stated the Chrysler CM6 came with a Stromberg updraft carb. So, does anyone have one of these puppies?

Hi Rick

The Carter BB1 comes in different sizes. The one I have is 3" center to center on the mounting bolts. The one you need is also a BB1 but with mounting holes 2 11/16" center to center. I do have a Stromberg UR23 that fits that manifold. Will email you pictures

Chrysler used four different carbs in 1931 on the CM-6.

 

Stromberg UR-2 (all year) Chrysler part number 320914

Schebler S (early production) Schebler model SX-451

Schebler T (late production) Schebler model TX-65

Schebler T (later production) Schebler model TX-66

 

All four used a center to center bolt pattern of 2 11/16 inches (S.A.E. size 2).

 

(Opinion) on a scale of 1 (awful) to 10 (wonderful):

 

Stromberg UR-2 (8)

Schebler S (3)

Schebler T (-3)

 

Other carbs including the size 2 BB1 can be made to work.

 

Jon.
