62 corvette with original intake
« on: July 27, 2020, 07:17:11 PM »
What if any q/jet would work on a 62 Corvette ? I have been told a Carter WCFB 3059S is the original . Would a edelbrock work? Thanks for any info !!

A Qjet wont fit the 1962 Corvette intake due to the large secondary throttle blades, you will have to find a proper Qjet intake to use a Qjet on your engine.
The best choice would be a 1969 intake with a 1969 Chevy Qjet, but any Chevy Qjet with divorced choke could be modified/calibrated to work.

Original carb for 1962 Corvette w/MT is Carter AFB 3269S (Service carb 3721SA) and 3310S (Service carb 3720SA) for AT.

Was the engine rebuilt back to stock specs?

If modifications were made to it the original carb may not work well, or at a minimum needs a little custom tuning so it works well with the new engine combo.

I have a mid 1960's AVS here originally from a 327 engine.  It's actually on Ebay right now as I'm cleaning up the shop and moving some cores that I don't plan on using.

Thanks Cliff; I'm sure it's pretty much stock but I think he has a 63 intake on it if that makes a difference ? I'll pass this info along as soon as I can !!
