carter afb

Question

I have a Carter AFB carburetor with no identifying number.  The top casting is #6-1855 and the bottom casting is #0-1565.  The throttle shaft connection is obviously Pontiac but the top section has a fuel inlet on the right front.  I would like to get a Carter identifying number or a Pontiac application so I could rebuild it.  Can anybody help?

Hi Bernie - Welcome to FP. Carter and Pontiac had a 10-year run with Carter AFB carbs and lots of applications. Here is the list, as I know.  I hope this helps.

S/T = standard (manual) transmission

A/T = automatic transmission 

S/D or SD = Super Duty
