A trick to help later with the carb, should it ever need a rebuild again, spray all the gaskets with WD40 before assembling it. and remember to spray WD40 in the pump bore before assembling it.
someone has taken my idea !!!!! hahah im glad someone else does this, i use marvel mystery oil on he gaskets and the ACC pump, the thicker base gaskets on the quadrajets get a very very very light smear of grease.

the reason is when i hook them up ( mainly the 1406 ) if i need to take them apart to change jets and such the gaskets wont get stuck and tear, and i bought a ebay kit for the 1406 and it was piss poor quality, the gaskets tore everytime i removed them.....

I do the same bro, I learned it from a carb rebuilder, he taught me it few years back and I try to pass any little bit I know on to others to help.
Greasing a Qjet pump now that's a new one to me?

Like wise I have a 1966 Corvair/140 and am trying the same thing you are doing by using a Carter AFB.
It has a Holley 390 now but I prefer the AFB. Have you installed the AFB on your Corvair by now and if so how is it working.

I found some information that shows it could be a carb off a late 50's Chrysler with dual quads and it is 400CFM. However the number should be 2632S and mine is just 2632. I hope it is a 400CFM as that is what I would like to try.

Do any of you know a place that can assist identifying the carb?
Do any of you know what rebuild kits may fit?

I am a novice with Carter's. I have worked on Edlebrock's (which are Carter AFB 9000 if my memory is correct), Rocherster's and Holley's but never an old AFB Carter.

Thank you,

Keith
As I remember form my Carter AFB days and consulting with Jon Hardgrove "The Carb King", the suffix "S" means "original assembly" and sometimes the "S" is omitted. The letter following the carb number or following the suffix "S" , example: 2953SA, the letter A means the first revision, and B means the second, C means the third, etc.
