  • Fuel System: WCFB model numbers?

    Where are the model numbers hid on a WCFB carburetor?

    1957 Silver Hawk "Josie"- picking up the pieces after an unreliable body man let it rot for 11 years from an almost driver to a basket case
    1951 Land Cruiser "Bunnie Ketcher" only 47M miles!
    1951 Commander Starlight "Dale"- basket case
    1947 Champion "Sally"- basket case
    1941 Commander Land Cruiser "Ursula"- basket case

        In that case you look up the Carter model Number in the Chassis Parts Catalog that applies to the year of the Car you took it from, there should be about a 75% chance that it is correct.

        If it looks like a Studebaker version, works like one, has the Fuel Line in the Right FRONT, it probably IS.
        The truth be told, it does not matter, all of my Repair Kits fit all years of Studebaker Carter WCFB's anyway.

          Here are two from my collection. The one on the left is tagged as being Studebaker and has the tag of 2830S. The one is the right is more of a mystery. It's almost a fraternal twin except that it's grungier and has that secondary counter-weight dealie hanging out of the side. It has no tag. The horn casting says 6-1273, the body casting says 0-132, and the base is stamped 1456.

          BTW, this is silly but I saw the horn casting starting with 6 and thought "Yes! This is for Studebakers!" Then I realized that only works for Strombergs....

            These were used 1955 to 1962 so along the way there were improvements like those Counter Weighted Dust Doors for the Secondaries. The "Mystery Carb. is probably one of the Later years '59-'62 maybe.

            Notice that their linkage Levers are both the same and Studebaker, probably not Buick, Dodge, or Chrysler.
