    Default Carter AFB carburetors assigned to Buick

    The following (if my computer skills are marginal) is a listing of every Carter AFB assigned by Carter to Buick. This includes both production and experimental numbers. If the reference is a 2, the unit is definately production. If the reference is a 10, I have limited information. A 10 might be production; but is more than likely experimental. Where experimental is known for sure, you may see the term "experimental" or "cancelled".

    Jon.

    Well, I previewed the post, and the forum editor edited out the spaces, making for a much less useable list Anyway, look at the captions, and maybe it is better than nothing.

    Jon.

    Adam - you are welcome.

    If some computer guru can straighten out the table, I can email the table to you in text, Microsoft Access, or Microsoft Excel.

    Thumbs up Re: Carter AFB carburetors assigned to Buick

    Well that explains that! Thanks.
    I guess I was wondering about Carter carbs in general for the earlier years. I have a 54 322 with a 4bbl and originally would have had a 2bbl. Not a big deal if no info...
    Thanks again!
