Q & A

What's in the Box

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.

Everything You Need

July 07, 2012
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.

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.

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.

                        If you want to modify your carburetor-equipped vehicle for performance today, you can choose from three major carburetor families – Holley, Demon, and Edelbrock. While Holley and Holley-style carburetors like Demon have been popular for years with their well documented successes and quirks, there has never before been a book covering the ins and outs of the emerging Edelbrock line of carburetors.

A revision of the best-selling title Super Tuning and Modifying Carter Carburetors, this book contains more than 300 color photos, illustrations, and diagrams, covering rebuilding, tuning, and modifying Carter and Edelbrock carburetors.

This book also features the history of Carter as well as the history of the AFB and the AVS since the purchase by Edelbrock. Author David Emanuel outlines carburetor types, gives a thorough look at carb selection and carb function, and offers detailed information on modifications, tuning, and rebuilding Carter/Edelbrock carburetors.
