    Carter Carburetors went out of business close to 20 years ago. Federal Mogul bought the rights to the Carter design, but most of the Carter type carburetors are sold under the Edelbrock name brand.

    Thanks 1 Ton. I am looking to replace my carb with an edelbrock. I have been looking on Ebay at new carbs, and they are selling for right at about $200, and a lot of them too. Are these guys that are selling them getting a good deal somewhere that i could get one or what? Most places i have looked have these carbs for close to $300. Any thoughts? Thanks /forums/images/graemlins/ears.gif /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif

    avgas, just out of curiosity, why are you going with a rebuilt instead of a new edelbrock? I am new to all this, so any advice would be great. I have heard that the Quadrajets are good for trails and rockclimbing. I dont do much of that, almost all DD. But is there anything else i should think about before i buy a new edelbrock? Thanks

    Yup, if you have an egr valve , it will hit the rear of carb and you will need a spacer for either the carb or egr to run it. If you have no smog there and removed it all, then disregard what I just wrote. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    also are you gonna put a squarebore on instead on the q jet?? if you do , the stock intake wont allow the butterflies to open without a spacer on it.
