PRICE CUT: CARTER 720-SA Carburetor. 1949 to 1954 PONTIAC.

Recommended Posts

This is a Carter 720-SA carb, suitable for rebuilding. It's a take-off from about 45 years ago. So, there's plenty of dust and dirt on the carb exterior. I haven't done any cleaning. However, everything moves as it should (no shafts seized or rusted). Original copper Carter I.D. tag is in place. The choke is complete, with an uncracked Bakelite housing.

 

I believe this carb application is for 1949 to 1953 PONTIAC model 27, and 1954 PONTIAC model 28. However, be sure to check to make sure this carburetor is right for you.

 

Again, this carb is being sold as a core. Should be a good candidate for rebuilding. Don't expect to bolt it on as-as, and go down the road!

 

The new, REDUCED PRICE is just $49, plus the shipping. John

Thanks for checking in on the 1954 Pontiac application for the Carter 720-SA. A very learned vintage Pontiac guy named Charles L. Coker posted this Pontiac Carter carb information back in November of 2015:

 

Here's how they (Carter carb applications) are listed in the 1949 to 1954 pontiac shop manual,

1954 8 cyl hydra-matic WCD2122S

synchro-mesh WCD720SA

1949 to 1953 8 cyl hydra-matic WCD720S, 720SA

synchro-mesh WCD719S, 719SA

1953 to 1954 6 cyl all WCD2010S

the letter A means the carburetor has a anti-rattle washer on the choke shaft.

I'm not poking fun at you, pontiac1953, since I really appreciate you taking the time to make sure I wasn't listing an incorrect Pontiac application. However, the shop manual carb usage information from the post of four years ago seems to indicate the Carter 720-SA is the correct carb for 1954 Pontiac, with manual transmission (plus the other Ponitac applications from 1949 to 1953).

 

Please let me know, if I have this latest information wrong, since I certainly don't want to mislead any potential buyer. Thanks. John

Carter 2122s was introduced 5 October 1953. Most of the 1954 carburetors were released in August.
