    [xx(] OK, I give up. The old AFB on my '64 just isn't working out. Can anyone suggest an easily attainable, modern 4 bbl carb that will fit the AFB manifold on my 289? One that has the right CFM rating...

    Edelbrock 500CFM "performer" (AFB clone) you'll need a spacer and a new air cleaner though.

    I'd like to try one of the "thunder series" carbs (AVS clone) but haven't had the opportunity yet.

      Would like to find one that fits the manifold without an adapter plate.

        Leon,
        I don't think it's an "adaptor" as such - just a spacer to set the new carb up a bit. OR - it's my understanding that you can lop off a bit of the throttle lever that interferes with the manifold and need no more than a gasket to mount that carb that Nate talks about.
        You DO need a new air cleaner OR an adaptor as the top of the new carb is a different diameter. Get the electric choke option too. Pretty slick! I've got one here that we put on a 289 and it ran right out of the box!

        Miscreant at large.
        No deceptive flags to prove I'm patriotic - no biblical BS to impress - just ME and Studebakers - as it should be.
