I'm rebuilding a Carter WE carb (on 54 Champion six), did not work well on running engine[xx(]

Anyways the new rebuild kit includes two little steel balls. None came out of the old carb - where do these go? The instructions & diagram that came with the kit don't mention them, and the chiltons manual only says "insert check balls".....which passage or spot should they go?

Kinda in a hurry to get it back together as its going in a memorial day parade on monday.

I don't know about your 54 stude. shop manual, but i do know my 47,48,49 stude shop manual shows some pics. of the WE Carter Carb. I guess what i'm asking is do you have a 54 Studebaker shop manual? Champ:)

According to my 47 manual one ball is the inlet check ball that goes below retainer screen below pump. second ball is discharge ball and goes under the passage plug and pump jet.Champ
