I believe the difference is that remanufactured is one that is sent back to a company, where they ensure that all of the surfaces and passageways are correct and then reassemble it with new parts, while rebuilt is primarily done by the do it yourselfer, by just installing new parts. But I could be wrong.

Theoretically, "rebuilt" means it has been taken apart, cleaned, reconditioned, and reassembled by a skilled craftsman (it can also mean a reasonably competent do-it-yourselfer does as much of the foregoing as he practically can).

"Remanufactured" means it has been sent down a disassembly line, all parts of a type (air horns, throttle bodies, main castings, etc.) thrown together in a big barrel and abusively cleaned, then one of each kind of part randomly thrown together on a line, in a factory, by morons who couldn't quite handle the level of thinking required to hold down a job at Taco Bell.

BUT, the two terms are often used interchangeably; you cannot rely on a carburetor being worth buying because it is sold as "rebuilt" rather than "remanufactured".

Anybody have an idea if these links have changed? Can't seem to get them to work. Or if somebody knows of the reposted elsewhere?

I fixed the links, try again. The BBD manual isn't for the carb on your car, you need the BBS manual.

Dan (sorry, but I'll assume your name is Dan), you keep this up and I'll have to put you on my christmas card list. I've only been at this a week or so, and 95% if my info has come from your postings over the years. Chrysler should find a job for you in the "Our sh#t is awesome and this guy will keep it there" department. Guessing that department doesn't exist so when it's created you should be Executive Director.

Resurrecting this thread rather than starting a new one.....I read thru much of it including the links and cant help but ask about the elephant in the room....."What is a guy to do when looking for a super six 2 bbl carb if reman units from vendors are no good? How is one to know if a carb that a private seller is selling is original, rebuilt, reman, etc?"

Seems like there really IS no way to know that...let alone what VERSION (non lean burn or lean burn) it is.

Lean burn vs non-lean burn is easy. There were no lean burn slant six specific Carter BBDs. Lean burn carburetors have wires going into the float bowl to control the stepper motor that adjusted the mixture.

There really is no way to tell if a used carburetor is any good. You can inspect it an check for throttle shaft wear, and if you are lucky the seller will let you open it up and look for corrosion and missing parts.

Your best option is to contact a NOS parts deal (Old Car Parts Northwest, Arizona Parts, etc...) and see if they have a NOS carb. NOS carbs pop up on eBay occasionally, as well. And remember the Holley 2280 is a bolt-on replacement for the Carter BBD. If you can't find a NOS carb your best bet is to find a greasy and grimy old original unrebuilt carburetor and rebuild it yourself. Worn throttle shaft housings can be rebushed. Third choice would be to find an old stock remanufactured carb form the early 90s or earlier (that is an arbitrary date I picked out of thin air based on the likelihood that remanufacturing quality for carbs was better in the early 90s and earlier).

great info.
My carb is leaking a lot of gas (front side of carb). I'm gonna remove the carb and let it be completely re-staured at a company specialised in carbs and steeringpumps and alternators.
When it'll return, I will use this info to get the car back into it's smooth running as it is doing now.

I think a NOS carb is the safest bet. But if they are obviously getting rarer by the day. A carb reco company over here are selling the new reproduction carbs, it they strip them, check them out and gaurs tee good to go. As I say NOS would be preferable, it this may be another option. I’ll try and find their names later.

I'll consider using a Chinese carburetor-shaped trinket the day I decide I want my car to burn down.
