QUICK QUESTION TO ANYBODY WHO MAY KNOW OR HAVE DEALT WITH SIMILAR CARB'S. I PLAN ON REBUILDING THE CARTER SINGLE BARREL/SINGLE JET CARB FOR MY 58' PLYMOUTH 230" FLATHEAD SIX, BUT BEFORE I DISABLE THE CAR DOES ANYBODY KNOW IF THE FLOAT IS A BRASS RE-USABLE ONE, OR ANOTHER STYLE THAT SHOULD BE REPLACED. I MEAN THEY SHOULD ALL BE REPLACED WHEN YOUR IN THERE BUT IF ITS BRASS I'M GONNA LEAVE IT ALONE AND JUST CLEAN IT. ANY INFO WOULD HELP, THANKS!

Should be brass. No need to replace a brass float unless there's a hole in it.

I have a 230 as well and have a few Carter carbs which all have brass floats so you should be okay, unless it has a hole like Bob mentioned.

So i buy the rebuild kit, it looks right, get the carb all apart and cleaned up, gaskets are wrong! I did some research and the NOS kits that im finding claim that the carburetor belonged on a 54' plymouth with the flat six. Now I have a hard time believing that this motor has ever been outta my car, everything looks original and untouched. I guess its possible that the motor has been changed or at least the carb, i would guess more so that the documentation of the carburetors from that time is a little off, but i could be wrong. I already got an NOS mopar kit coing, my question for anybody out there is if you got a 58' plymouth with the 230" flat six could you post me a pic of your carb, im just really curious now, id appreciate it, thanks!

Was there a brass tag on the carb with a number on it? If so, use that number to order the kit, not make and model. Does anybody out there know where they put the part number of the carb? is it on the base or air horn? You can also go to Facebook and look for James Rawa. He is a plethora of knowledge on Mopar products. Jim maybe able to help. Jum no longer goes on this site.

You have the right carb, the trouble is that the parts houses don't have the right information listed for these cars anymore, it's like they all use the same crappy reference. I had to order a kit for a 62 plymouth with a slant six to get the right damn kit. The ones that the big auto stores list for the 57-59 plymouths are either two barrel strombergs or the older BB carter. What we have is the Carter BBS. Napa's part # is CRB25500

Unfortunately the brass tag was broke off, but no worries I've got it taken care of. Did a little searching on ebay and found the right style kits for my carb, and you're right, the instructions on the NOS mopar kit i got call it a BBS style carb. So anyways she'll be up and running tonight or tomorrow if all goes to plan. Its good to know that i have the correct carb for my car i appreciate your input and help!

Your welcome! I understand the frustration your going through cause I've been through this myself. I put a kit in the carb that was on the car when I bought her but I ended up buying an old remanufactured one that works much better.
