3655S carb, and a 3656S carb .I know the difference is one is for A/C and the other in for a non A/C car . Now the question is : can I use the carb bowl from the A/C car on the non A/C car ? They look the same set up next to each other

The  non A/C  carb bowl has a broken mount on the base 3655S, I had an A/C carburetor 3656S same year  and everything look the same  so I’m transferring all the parts  jets,metering rods floats, nozzles .....everything to the carb that had A/C  . I’m just putting together a good spare Incase I have an issue with the one on the car

The sizes of the jets and metering rods is stamped on them 

If the metering rods are worn  ( usually on the top ) you can get new at the local auto parts store 

Once you know —ALL the engine spec  and vacuum issues have been addressed and correct you will want to reject the carb for the ethanol fuel we now use ( very last adjustment to tweak the tune ) 

The plugs should look the color of a brown paper bag when they are right and will burn whiter than they SB with the ethanol fuel

Whiter is leaner and produces additional heat in the cylinders 

if you call Edelbrock  techs and tell them the number of the jets  and metering rods you have they will advise you which primary jets and metering rod combo to go to get the plugs that color 

Took me two times to get mine right with there help 

They bought the rights to produce the Carter carb and made a few changes to it on there new carbs they sell  

The Carter is an outstanding carb so rebuilding them and staying stock is a very good idea to me especially if you have a 63 with the TV rod that shifts the trans attached to accelerator arm of the carb 

The bracket for the TV rod does not come on any new Edelbrock carbs sold and you would have to be making your own for the trans to shift right which I would not be comfortable doing 

The trans performing correctly  on the any Cadillac in our years with the Hydromatic  trans is way to far important to be making you own carb bracket  to be doing that in my own opinion

So what is tour info on carb models ?

Where did you get tour info on the carb models?  I would love to have that info on hand, as I never heard it before. One never stops learning, I love it. 

The Carter carb bowl should be the same, just check the jets.

When rebuilding the Carter  carb be sure the accelerator pump moves freely and is not binding in its cavity

Thanks for the info Tony .

I think the only difference WB the vacuum idle up valve that the AC carb would have on its outside —on the passengers side of the carb as an attachment 

Brings the idle up 600 RPMs when AC is used at an idle 

Otherwise the carbs SB the same —so yes

64 Power Servo vacuum leak

Posted by Kent Prows on June 27, 2020 at 4:02pm 0 Comments

I finally got around to fixing a leak in my heater core.  I decided to check to see if there were any other obvious issues while I had everything torn apart.  When I put a vacuum directly (bypassing the transducer) to the power servo it gets to about 10" and then slowly leaks back to zero.  The fan will not go to full and the mode door will not open completely.  I have read a couple of other posts that said they repaired the power servo leaks.  How?  Does anyone have one to sell?  I just…
