I buy carburetors from estate sales, yard sales, and from anyone with a carburetor to sell and offer quick appraisal of the following carburetor models.
- Edelbrock, Carter, and Weber – AFB (Performer) & AVS (Thunder)
- Holley – 1920*, 2300**, 4150, 4160, 4165, 4175, 4180, and 4190
- Stromberg – WW**
- *one-barrel carburetor, ** two-barrel carburetor. All else are four-barrel carburetors
HOW TO IDENTIFY YOUR CARBURETOR
No worries if you are not sure what model of carburetor you have, just email me pictures (see below) with your contact info and I’ll quickly let you know if it’s what I purchase. Generally speaking, looking from the bottom of the carburetor, count the number of round disks that rotate with a shaft when you move a lever (it’s usually a big clunky lever). The number of round disks will identify how many barrels (also called bores or venturi) you have.
CARBURETOR PICTURE INSTRUCTIONS
Just send me some pictures of carburetor you have as noted below and be certain to frame the picture, so the carburetor is fully within the picture with little else.
- all four sides
- Optional, photograph any numbers that are visible – but not patent numbers.
- I need a minimum of six pictures (#1-3 above)
