Don't confuse a Carter WCFB with the Rochester. The AFB is not a Rochester produced carburetor they were made by Carter Carburetor. It is not a '50's design like the 4150 Holley which replaced the...

The SCJ and the CJ manifolds are the same and use CJ size ports despite the mismatch with the D3VE heads when used on a boat. The difference is that the SCJ piece is machined to fit a Holley...

I would avoid an 850 too. Several years ago a customer of mine was using one on his 454 Chevy in a jet boat. When I had the engine on the dyno it was amazing how much load and rpm it could pull yet...
