Hi guys,

I was trying to identify my Carbs but can't find anything about them anywhere... I got two on a dual manifold with the symbols 8962 see pics... does anyone know anything about those?

Thanks,
Zarks

Normally Edelbrock puts the carb part number on the base of the carb on the right front (passenger side) area where the mounting hole is located just above the base gasket facing forward. With two carbs I would imagine you have 500 cfm carbs Part #1404. Just a thought anyway, good luck.

Those are certainly 500 cfm carbs as anything bigger would be a gross overkill. To be perfectly honest with you just one of them would be enough to feed a stock 350" engine. But as they're "AVS" carbs (air valve secondaries) the secondaries will only open just enough to supply your engine with what it needs at wide open throttle/max rpm. I had considered going to dual quads on my '71 with a 454" but I decided to go with a single 750 cfm Holley instead. And even then 750 cfm is almost too much for my driving style (which seldom exceeds 4000 rpm).
