Carter AFB Rebuild

Have any of you rebuilt a Carter AFB? I have a 9627 and a kit I got off Ebay. I consider myself fairly machanically advanced; my question is this: can I do it myself? Any tips suggestions appreciated...

Carter and Edelbrock are supposed to be the same thing - I wanted a look at the 9627 but can't find a listing for that PN, closest is 9637 (625 cfm, elec. choke, EGR, squarebore). Either way they look the same and the Edelbrock I have (1406) was the easiest carb I ever rebuilt and the rebuild kit I used says for carter/edelbrock carbs. Should be cake job.

From reading other posts on here, the 9627 means 9000 series, 625 CFM, and the 2 (625 + 2=627) means a Ford linkage, which I hope I can easily convert over to Chev.

Thanks for the encouragement, I am gonna try it.

They are an easy rebuild. As with anything else, clean it up good.

The Carter/Edelbrock's are easier than a Holley and waaaay easier than a Rochester which has about a million moving parts. I'd do two things: 1) Make sure the rebuild kit includes the accelerator pump, some don't; and, 2) Pick up a Carter book (+- $15), which has rebuild info and ideas.
