Identificatin
« on: August 08, 2017, 11:45:30 AM »
I bought a Q-Jet core, manufactured by Carter.  The ID number is 44568 9no 70 prefix) and then a GO on the next line.  I thought it would be a 74 California carb but it has a divorced choke as well as the small float hanger in the fuel bowl.  Also the airhorn has the metal strip fuel bowl vent.  Looking at it under magnification doesn't appear to be a restamp.  Any help would be appreciated.

 It could of been converted to divorced choke. Why? I don't know.

Thanks Ethan but I'm still puzzled as to why it would have the short float hanger.  I thought they stopped using those around 1967.  Also, can you tell me if this carburetor would have been visually the same as any other 74 Q-Jet.  Would the differences been only internal?

Thanks,

Jay

Also checked an jets, primary rods and secondary rods are the same as a non CA carb.

Possibly a 4456 S.
That would be a 67 Pontiac I believe.
