What's in the Box

Info

Most of the time you can bolt an Edelbrock Performer carb on your engine and it’s good to go. But if you have done a little tweaking on the engine you may need to tune it a bit. These kits include an assortment of metering rods and jets, one pair of metering rod retaining springs and a complete assortment of step-up springs.

You may want to order a 325-1477 rebuild kit also.

Item Details

Metering Rods (Pair): .068 x .042, .068 x .052, .070 x .052, .073 x .047, .073 x .052, .075 x .047

Calibration Kit

April 13, 2015
Great little kit for tuning the Edelbrock Carbs. You will need a magnifying glass to read the little numbers on the parts tho or have Superman vision. Kit works great and would recommend it to anyone running a Edelbrock
Cons:
  • numbers sure are teeny
Yes, I recommend this product.

These kits from Edelbrock are very nice in that you order one for the model of carburetor that you're using and then you have lots of metering options with easy reach. The first steps in several directions from the base calibration can be reached without having to remove the top of the carburetor which is very cool.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Why are the calibration kits for the 1405 and 1406 different if the carbs are the same with exception of manual vs auto choke? Thanks

The 1405 has a slightly different base calibration than the 1406 base calibration. If you compare charts in the instruction manual, you see that the 1405 is has a base tune that is richer than the 1406. If there was only one kit you would end up with duplicates.

I have a Federal Mogul version of the Carter AFB 9625. Is this the compatible kit to fine tune my existing carb? If not, can you recommend the correct one?

I'm sorry to say we do not have any way to verify your carter version would be the same. They should be very similar but there is a chance there could be some differences.
