These are the Carter carburetor manuals covering the years 1965-79. The manuals are without pictures or drawings, but the parts lists contain some vital information, like the jet sizes and measurments on the different metering rods for each carburetor model number. They should all be browsed, because the forms containing the manuals are not sorted on model or year. The cfm ratings may be somewhat deceptive.
