What do you guys think about this Carb?

I have a 350 4-bolt main engine that I am going to rebuild. I have a Carter AFT Competition Series Carb. The numbers that show on it, are, 9755S 2285, which from what I found is a Chevy Carb. I do know I have a Holley 4-barrel Carb, but as far as which one, I am not sure. It was given to me when I purchased the motor and was packed in a box. I have not taken it out yet, I know it was setup on the Motor when it was running, so I will have to have it over hauled, to bring it good specs. I am not sure which Carb I would want to use.

If anyone has used both, and has some input , please let me know.. I appreciate any help I can get. I have used a Holley 750 CFM Double Fuel Pump before on a 350 engine, and it was Sweet, I must add. But I don't think this is the Holley carb that I have. I will take the carb out of the box and update this Thread.

Juice,

If you search through old posts, you will find many arguments for both sides. I think you will find that for those who can tune a carb properly there is no substitute for the Holley. They just perform better. However, there lots of guys that argue for the Quadrajunk and the AFB's. I have run and tryed to tune all three. My experience is that the Holley is better all the way around.......but that's just me. Of course when I say Holley I mean the 4150 and 4160 style, which is what most people think of when they talk Holleys. I have never worked on a BG, but I am sure they are top of the line as well. I mean all they really are is a dressed up Holley.

Well, I think that you answered your own question "the holley ran sweet". I personally like the holley, but you know what they say, " opinions are like assh-les". But hey try them all out and see for yourself, just don'nt break the bank doing it.

Very well said, the problem with the quadrjunks is the fuel bowl, that dont hold alot of gas in reserve and on any type of performance build this becomes a real problem..Before I modified the 402 in the 67 impala I had, it was bone stock with quess what? and I took it to a local eigth mile for a baseline, about halfway down the eighth Id run out of gas everytime in the same place, sputter, put,put, then it would pick it up again..I was so po'ed I tossed that carb right then and there borrowed a holley and never looked back..now if you could run 6 quadrajets at the same time it might be ok. I think Id rather use a coffee can and a garden hose.. whats the cirgarette lighter air compressor for? it for just the right air/fuel ratio
