    I found out I have some original Carters #9410s 400CFM. That I know of no one makes 400's any more. My question is I need to pick up what was once called a Strip-kit. Since those are no longer made what equivalent would Edelbrock have? Most of their kits are for 1407,1405 Etc. I am not sure if Edlebrocks parts are interchangeable.

    some are interchangeable but you've got some rare ones there. I'd suggest contacting Edelbrock direct or keeping an eye on ebay, you never know what you might find there. The only issue is you could be waiting a long time for something like that if they don't use the same parts.
    I guess you could also just order a set of jets and metering rods from Summitt to see if they fit. A set of jets are about $6.00, not sure on the metering rods.

    To my recollection ,most of the edelbrock kit parts will work on the AFB and AVS , any good Napa store counter guy should be able to dig up kits for the AFB's however....Tom

    I found my old Carter book and it looks like the 9410 was an aftermarket carb calibrated for a Chevy 283 with an EGR valve. It is an AFB type carb so you may just get lucky and find the strip kit for a 1403 or 1404 will fit.
    Measure the throttle bores on the bottom, they should be 1-7/16 which is the same as the 1403 and 04 on the primary side.

    Called Edelbrock Today they were clueless. They gave me the number to Federal-mogul they were clueless. Called Allstate Carb they were pretty knowledgeable.

    I was at BFIC Fuel Systems picking up an old Holley carb for an aircraft tug and I was talking to them about the Carter carbs. Turns out they used to be a Carter dealer and they kept all the parts and kits for the carbs. They were very knowledgeable even more so than Allstate.

    This is just crazy enought to work.
