trying to identify Holley carb from numbers

I am looking to get a rebuild kit for my Holley carb but struggling to confirm the exact model.

It is a double pumper with the following numbers:

3310-9 on the side of the main body, on two lines as shown to the left here.
1832

P-36 Holley on the opposite side

8493-A on the front

8494-A on the rear. the second 4 is hard to read but I am sure it is 8494

6R-8026 on the top of the main body

Many thanks for any help,
Paul

The 3310 is a vacuum secondary carb. Does your carb have two pumps, one underside both bowls? Can you post some pics?

stroke, I read your post and sure enough you are right in that there is only one fuel pump.

I took it to the local speed store and got a renew kit which I installed yesterday. The car fired instantly upon installation and runs like a champ, very responsive. All I need to do know is work out how to set the mixture. I grabbed the Holley book on the 4160 carb (which it apparently is) and will read it today to get direction on setting mixture.

The carb had lots of tiny light brown flakes. If I had to guess I would say crystallized gas? The car has sat for 5 years and only been run maybe half a dozen times during that period.

I have flushed the tank and piped and it has fresh gas so the carb was the last thing that needed cleaning.

Thanks for your input,
Paul
