Mick we are glad that you did find this site. There are some very knowledgeable people here as members and have great expertise in advice and tips on the how to?? Another benefit is outsourcing parts as several have collected them over the years to swap out or in my case bought " just in case." Great to have you on board and with regards to your questions " ask away ."

Hi Cubbear,

When I ordered a "complete kit" years ago from a vendor the States, I found out when it arrived here at my home that the Secondary Diaphragm was/is not included!!!
Maybe it's changed over the years, but that one had to be bought seperately they told me later........

Different manufacturers pack different things in the kits. If you want the best kit for the 352, Tomco includes the secondary diaphragm. Motorcraft, NAPA and Hygrade do not.
The Tomco and NAPA kits for the 430 Carter do not include the dashpot piston or the seal for it. An unbranded kit that I sell has the seal that you must install on the old piston rod. I did find an older kit on evil-bay that was complete, but no name on it.

I just replaced my carb on my bird. Bought a fresh new rebuilt 4100. I rebuilt the old carb but the rich/lean screws were worn down bad...
