Carter AFB part numbers and carb sizes

Just to put this information out there for anyone wondering: Carter 9000 series carbs denote the carb size in the part number. For instance, P/N 9400 is 400 CFM and P/N 9625 is 625 CFM. "9000" is the aftermarket AFB series which includes three sizes of carb for Chevy, 400, 500, and 625 cfm. Variations to the carb number from the above include the addition of 1 to the part number for Chrysler applications, of which two were offered, ie: 9501 and 9626(500 and 625cfm). The addition of 2 denotes Ford applications of which only one part number was offered, the 9627(625cfm). The addition of 10 to the part number denotes connections for EGR ie:9510, 9635. (500, 625cfm)

The Carter Competition carbs are a race version AFB and are a separate product line from the 9000 series. They also have a different set of part numbers.

This information is relevant only to the Carter AFB line of carbs and does not include the Edelbrock Performer(a relabeled AFB) or any Weber changes to the product line.

This information comes from the HP Book written by Dave Emanuel. Please forgive any misquotes. If anyone has better, or more complete information, please post it.

I buy and sell and refurbish Carbs to fund my project primarily the Carters and Edelbrocks.The Competition Series are also the 9600 Series, here are three examples in pictures of a 9635SA (Universal linkage& GM) and a 9636SA (Mopar linkage, it's for sale) and a 9637SA (Ford linkage w/ C4 & C6 kickdown) Notice the band in the front? The 9636SA has the Carter AFB band which is also common prior to these Carbs becoming the Edelbrock Performer which shares the same internal parts.Look at the bottom left side of the Carbs for the stamped part numbers.There also was an earlier 4700 series Competition Series AFB,too bad Edelbrock is not producing the 400 CFM Carbs they bring high bucks if you can find one.
