    In a thread dated 1/21/16 @ 6:12 PM, Myloth referred to an "AFB" carb. Sorry to be ignorant but what is an AFB carb?

    Aluminum Four Barrel Carburetor (AFB) made by Carter Carburetor for many Cars in the 1960s

    Later they were sold as aftermarket 4 Barrels on the cheap

    And later still Edelbrock bought the toolings and now sells them as their own

    It's a simple design that's easy to tune and maintain
