Carb work

This is the original ’63 Carter AFB 3589S(?) carb from the Jet Thrust engine. I’m hoping I will be able to control the trans control cable with the ’66 trans’ carb throttle arms as is or with mods.

Lots of crud buildup and aluminum oxidation on the outside.

Inside isn’t looking much better inside.

The plan is to disassemble it and put it in carb cleaner and see what it all looks like. I’ll clean off as much crud as I can before putting in the cleaner and let soak overnight. The idle mixture screws are stuck so I’m hoping that the cleaner will loosen them up.
