Title: Carter vs Rochester
Post by: firedome on October 27, 2009, 07:18:39 AM
I was kinda surprised when I first looked at the F3 to find that under
the 318's air cleaner lurked not a Carter BBD as I expected but a
Rochester 2GV, which I found was std on 318s with A/C and AT.  I
want to keep it 2 bbl, because I like the simplicity and emphasis on
torque, and I drive like the geezer that I am, anyhow. So are there any
+ or - with one or the other carb? I've had pretty good experiences
with the Roch 2 bbl on a '73 Olds 88 350 I had once - that car ran
great and trouble free - (at least until my wife fried the 350 Rocket,
but that's another story)!

The Holley carbs off Diplomats are reliable.
Ditto the Carter ball and ball.
