    Corvette Carburetor Rebuild - Carter AFB Blueprint Rebuild

    Here's how to rebuild that high-performance AFB carburetor from the early V-8 heydaysAt the dawn of the muscle car era, GM had thoroughly tested Carter's AFB carburetors on Chevrolet's 348 and 409, and on the high-output Pontiac 389 V-8s. The AFB was a logical choice for Corvette's new 327 small-block V-8s. From 1962-'65, a single, high-flow Carter AFB four-barrel carburetor fueled the 300 and 340 horsepower engines. Until the 1964 introduction of the Holley 4150 carburetor on 365 horsepower L76 engines, only Rochester's mechanical fuel injection could top the AFB's performance.inline_mediumwraptextrightCarter's AFB carburetor, introduced to the automotive industry in 1957, became Corvette's choice for the 300 and 340 horsepower RPO 583 and RPO 396 options in 1962. Exceptional stability and predictable performance were AFB hallmarks.27896773/techarticles/corp_1003_corvette_carburetor_rebuildcorp_1003_01+ corvette_carburetor_rebuild+.jpgTrue

    AFB carbs

    i have rebuilt lots of AFB carbs over the last 50 years and one problem i have found with rebuild kits is the gaskets for the needle/seat to carb top have too big inside diameter and can leak gas into the float bowl. i recommend that you check using soap solution and low air pressure to check for leak in this area before putting the carb back together.
