You can't "jet up" a carb either. Its a common misconception among people who know just enough to be dangerous.

For the carb model you have I just used google. Took all of 13.2 seconds.

The edelbrock and carter designs are VERY simmilar but they are not identical. Most of the parts interchange but not all of them. Also some parts of the fuel metering are different, which is why you can't use edelbrock specs.

Fimd the carter specs, you may be able to match the edelbrock rods and jets to their specs for use in your carb.

Btw you have an easy carb to work with, so just be patient and find your stock specs.
