Rare Carter Carburetor Technical Service Bulletins
If you own one of the earliest Chevrolet Corvettes, you understand the joys of the Carter carburetor “side draft” design. I have a dear friend who saved his money in High School and purchased a used 1954 Corvette. He still drives it regularly over sixty years later. After tweaking the carbs dozens of times over the decades, he is likely the only person who would not benefit from the following Carter carb technical service bulletins. For the rest of us- these could be a big help.
