    What is really scary is that list of Carter Model AS's that they SAY interchange to theirs! NOT!

    I admit they will replace each other, but you don't want to go from an "AS" to a "RBS", EVER!

      Rich, what is the specific problem with the RBS, and can it be fixed? I know one I dealt with, the main jet basically fell out of the casting. I have an RBS on the OHV six in this '60 Lark I have here in Arizona, and it actually starts and runs pretty well. The OHV six is one I put together from parts, and is a replacement for a previous -owner engine swap, that seized up.

        Just one of the issues is the Chokes refuse to work, they lean out, sputter, cough and die when cold. Maybe you need to take it home where it is COLD !

        Another is, they do not seem to take to being rebuilt, are very cheaply made and seem to be made to be disposable.

            I have a NOS in the box Studebaker 1555174, Carter AS-3370S for less than the carb in post #13.

            Also a NOS Studebaker 1560579, Carter RBS-3653S, if you want to go that route.

            Send a PM if interested (have only 1 left).

              What is the difference between PCV and no PVC? Jetting, or the port, or both?

              I always go with the latest and greatest year I can find of ANY Studebaker Part that FITS my application!

              Here is what Carter Carbs. you are looking for:

              '61S 1551523 = AS-3159S -exc. Y1 less governor *

              '61S 1551522 = AS-3161S -exc. Y1 less governor #

              '62S 1551174 = AS-3370S -exc. Y1 less governor *

              '62S 1555176 = AS-3372S -exc. Y1 less governor #

              '61-'64S 1552433 = AS-3372S - Y1 less governor # (Taxi)

              (*) = Without PCV System

              (#) = With PCV System (= With provision for PCV Valve & hose in lower mounting Base)

                As far as I know, the bottom casting with the Port would be all.
                If you really want to know, look up all of the internal Parts between the Two and compare them.
