Summit racing carburetor
 
Anyone here using summit racings Carburetor, Summit M2008, 600 cfm.
Looking to replace the autolite carb on my stock 60 352 with auto no air

Also do I need a 600cfm or can I go with the 500cfm
Thanks,
John

Hi John - I can't speak to the summit racing carb you mentioned, but the PO of my 60 352 auto no air installed the Edelbrock 1406 (600cfm) and I've had zero issues with it in eight years. Lot's of folks on here would probably say the same I think. Good Luck!

If you buy one go for the 600cfm, it will work well with it and you'll never have to worry about "Maybe I should have got the bigger one"!

Get the 600cfm and the Edelbrock 1406. I am another of those who went for that and it has given me no problems since.

Yes, the only issue I have had with the 1406 carbs, they seem to dissipate the fuel in the bowls faster than the Holleys so I end up cranking them longer?

But that could also be a symptom here in Ca due to our terrible mandated fuel and the ethanol content we have?

This car has the tiniest piped dual exhaust I have ever seen... Maybe 1.5 or 2 inches and exits strait down at a 90* after the mufflers behind the rear bumper
Will a 600 be to much?
What cfm is the factory autolite?
I'm not going to change out the exhaust because it's still good.
And is a lot quieter than my 68 cougar 390 duals

Isn't the edelbrock more of a Chrysler / gm type carb?

The Autolite carb is 600 cfm. I also recommend the Edelbrock 1406.

John I totally agree on the Edelbrock 1406. I installed it on my 60 and runs pretty sweet:D

That dissipation is true for me too if she sits for a couple of days, and I use non-ethanol gas here in NY since it is still available.

Speaking of ethanol free gas, last summer I used https://www.pure-gas.org
to locate stations that supposedly sell ethanol free, and had some surprises along the way from Buffalo to Harrisburg PA. This this year I'm heading to Ft Wayne IN I'm going to get more info and phone ahead to check on availability and whether the business actually still exists! Ran into both of those situations last year. I don't mind going a little out of the way if necessary, but to do so only to find a vacant filling station is a royal pain.....

So, I Pulled the trigger on a summit 600 carburetor.
I'll let you now how well it fits up and runs on a 352 stock intake.
