I have a Carter Carb form the 50's that I would like to ID. Is there a web site where I can go? I Would like to know what it is as I am tired of it on my shelf. Maybe someone could use it.
Thanks,
Jeffrey

That helps a lot. No brass tag. Thank for the information!! Only other numbers are a # on the choke 170 499 then there are 11 or 12 patent#'s. I did find on the end that it says Carter WCFB

carb

thats just the choke part # the only real way i know is with the brass tag it will tell the model # and build/ production date. a carb rebuild company may know more with those #
