    Without any good reliable reference source, it is almost impossible to determine the cfm rating. You'll need to get the number from the carb and cross reference it in a manual to determine the right cfm rating.

    Get the number and call your local part store. Ask for a rebuild kit price and then ask what cfm it is. They should be able to tell you.

    i think you can take the carb # to auto zone and they'll tell you with the books they have behind the counter
