Baseline Metering for Carter 750 AFB p/n 4760S

Got my hands on an old-school Carter 'Competition Series' 750 AFB w/manual choke, guy claims he's had it since the early 70s when his buddy gave up trying to get this thing running properly on a 340 Duster.

It is in good shape, it does in fact look like it's been shelved in a garage for 30+ years. I've opened it up to check out the metering parts and here's the scoop:

Primary Jets 110
Secondary Jets 92
Metering Rods 16-388

I have been poking around trying to find what the original baseline jetting and metering rods are for this model - anyone got some info?

Edelbrock shows on their website what comes in their #1407 750 CFM, but I'd really like to know what this thing came with out of the box - if I can.

Thanks

the 110 jets are correct,I cannot remember what metering rods it had.I used 2 of those on my 67 Camaro for awhile.Just 2 weeks ago gave away the strip kit I had for them.

Thanks Vinnie, that's a start.

The little info I have found shows the metering rods 16-388 as only available in a strip kit, so I doubt they came in the carb.

wish I could help more but it was 30 years ago. I remember the jets as 110s because I thought that was huge.I had only used small holleys before that.If your metering rod is 3 steps then its not original.
