    No, they are different. The WCFB measures approx. 4 1/2" dia. I don't have an AFB-Edelbrock handy to measure, but I think they are about 5 1/4" dia. or there abouts.

      well, the ORIGINAL AFB and new Edelbrock AFBs are different sizes. Not sure if the old AFB and the WCFB were the same size or not. I have an old Carter-branded aftermarket AFB and it is the newer, larger size, so the change was made some years ago.

          Current size for 4-barrel carbs (including the Edelbrock version of the AFB) is 5 1/8". That's significantly larger than the AFB and other carbs contemporary to the early '60s.
