    Default Carter AFB rebuild/electronic kickdown

    Is a Carter AFB from a '67 Skylark worth rebuilding? Should I buy and aftermarket carb? What kind is best for street use? Also, any resources for the electronic kickdown unit next to the carb? Can the smog pump be removed relatively easy? Thanks.

    If the car is mostly stock, I would keep and rebuild the original carb and keep all the correct parts on car. We carry parts and rebuild kits for the Carter and Edelbrock AFB's. Try giving Glenn at CARS a call to see if he has the kickdown switch as we do not carry that part.

    Also watch ebay - I've picked up a couple good ones there...or ask this board under parts wanted.
