Hi Guys!

Could someone tell me wether these two carbs in the dual carb system are the right ones for this 1941 Super:

Carter 663S
j8 9

Carter 528S
A0 3

The reason for asking this question is, that when I look up this year and model of this car in the Carter manual, it lists the 663S carb for late 40-ies or even early 50-ies, while the 528S seems to me the right one.

In case carb. 663S should also work, could someone let me know how you set the metering rod correctly?

Here is a link: https://www.teambuick.com/reference/carburetor_numbers.php


for 41-42 rear 663S front 528S, not a set. Both for the 40/50

Should be good enough to run
I'm not sure where did you get the info above, but the 663S is listed only once, for the year 1948-49.:


1948 - 4940/50608SC, 663SCarter WCD

and what do you mean "not a set"?
What does "set" means in this case?
And if this combo is only "good enough" what set or combo would be ideal?

The engine and chassy numbers are the same: 44399661
