    Smile handy Carter AFB air cleaner gasket

    Some of the carb kits don't have the air cleaner gasket with them. For a '67-'69 Carter AFB go pickup a gasket for late 80s-early 90s Iron Duke 2.5 L Pontiac throttle body to air cleaner gasket.
    Fel-Pro part # is 60706. It's a near perfect fit for the old original AFBs.

    I thought that most 4 BBL came in one basic generic size. How the air cleaner gasket off of a Holley or Rochester stait bore??? I once took a the gasket that was on a holley and stuck on the Carter AFB. Fit real nice too and still in use today.

    "I thought that most 4 BBL came in one basic generic size. How the air cleaner gasket off of a Holley or Rochester stait bore??? I once took a the gasket that was on a holley and stuck on the Carter AFB. Fit real nice too and still in use today."

    A modern Edelbrock/Weber Performer (AFB) is larger than the original OE 'small' AFBs '69 and back and will not fit. So no.......there isn't any generic 4bl. size. Some 4 bl. air cleaners will swap and some won't.

    Also I forgot to mention the Fel-Pro gasket number I quote is not a cheap paper gasket. It's a nice quality gasket that should last many years. Normally if carb. kits come with an air cleaner gasket it's the thin paper type. This is a much better gasket material.

    Of course if you have something that works, by all means use it.
