Edelbrock Performer 1406 Carburettor
Edelbrock Performer Carburettor 1406 with Electric Choke 600 CFM
Part of the Edelbrock Performer Series, the Edelbrock 1406 carburetor is precisely tuned and engineered to deliver consistent, reliable street performance in small-block and some big-block engines.
Supplied with an Electrical choke and features a two-piece, all-aluminium construction that is resistant to warping and compatible with blended fuels. This satin-finished 600 cfm, 4-barrel carburetor uses metering rods to transition between circuits, leaving it unaffected by engine backfires. The rods can also be changed in seconds without removing the carburetor or draining the fuel.
Other features include simple tub-type bowls, rear-pivot floats and non-adjustable secondary air valves. There are no gaskets below the fuel bowl level for fewer leaks and no plastic parts or power valves to blow out. The primary venturi booster is a bottom-feed design for smoother acceleration and better drivability.
Also included with every Edelbrock carburetor a comprehensive owner's manual. These manuals consist of two sections; Section 1, Theory of Operation and tuning procedures which will help you be prepared to develop your own individualized calibration. Section 2, Tuning procedures will take you through a step-by-step procedure that will enable you to achieve a desirable calibration. For added ease of tuning, a Calibration reference chart for your model of carburetor will be included.
