    Master Mechanic Carter AFB and WCFB Jet Size and Rebuild Information

    I found a PDF with some great AFB/WCFB information such as Jet and Rod Sizes, as well as a modification for the 3507 Supercharged AFB.

    It was pretty big so I just built one with Studebaker concerns. As you can see it also has info for other OEMs that used the AFB in the 60's

    Here is where I extracted the pages from to make a simple one document.

    http://restorecarsclassifieds.com/wi...earch_kind=and

    When you get here, you can change the search criteria. Massive amounts of information for a whole lot of cars..

    I compiled this document for 1963, which included the T-10 and the SN60 Supercharger rebuild instructions.

    I presume the 1964 page has the specs for the 3810 & 3811 S R4 Carbs. Mine were changed so many times trying to eek out another 10th in the quarter mile. I must have the original specs somewhere.

    Just remember that this info is 50+ years old.
    Gas has changed. Exhaust restrictions have changed.
    Just don't treat it as gospel.
    Treat it as a good starting point.
    A good vacuum guage and A/F ratio meter will help dial you in to todays realities...
    HTIH (Hope The Info Helps)

    Agree Jeff, it will help establish a return to the baseline. Also you have to search eBay to find some of these Jets/Rods as the numbers have changed, and the Stude ones are not readily found even in vintage Carter "Strip Kits"

    Thanks for stating this.

    I'm on my 4th Stude. As a matter of practice the first thing I do is send the carb to Dave Tebo while I update/ refresh the brakes and other essentials.
