          The adapters necessary to support the Holley bolt pattern hang WAYover the Rochester 4CG/Carter WCFB bolt pattern and look klunky on a show car. Been there, done that.

            Plus...running the ol' skool 4 Jets or WCFB's ADDS to "the look". As a bonus, those early 4 barrels were nice and small...350-400 CFM.

                What is thw standard cfm for a 3589S AFB Carter as utilized on an Avanti?

                AFB's are notoriously hard to get CFM ratings for. The 3589S uses a 1 1/16" primary venturi diameter and that size is not listed on any of the charts I've seen. The R2 carbs are 625 cfm and the R4's are 575 cfm EACH.

                  Well "fools wonder in where wise men fear to tread" Bob's pictures sucked me in and my wife/kids/grandkids said Merry Xmas early. My thought is to keep the project looking as "old skool" as possible. Now the search is on for a pair of (very small) carbs. If anybody has a pair, send pictures (and Price). Also, air cleaners and linkage are on the list.
                  Thanks for all of the information and comments.

                    Good to hear you are going for it! That will be a real-deal period piece when done. Now that you know the challenges, we'll give you all the help we can.

                    The Carter WCFBs were used on the OEM Chevy and Mopar 2x4s '56-58. The Rochester 4GCs were used on Cadillac and Packards '55-56. Finding a matched pair of either 2x4s will be the trick. Those from single 4-bbl installations can be modified to work on 2x4 via jet and linkage changes. A guy on the net was selling photocopies of the Carter WCFB 2x4 tuning pamphlet a while back. The Corvette 2x4 air cleaners are repro'd and available through hot rod and vintage Vette dealers.

                    Unless you are an experienced carb rebuilder, consider going a couple of years out on birthday and Christmas presents and having the Carb Doctor or Daytona Carbs do a complete remanufacturing for you. They aren't CASO-priced, but you'll know you have as close to new as is possible.

                    thnx, jack vines
