I picked up 4 carbs today, and am looking for opinions on each, in terms of ease of use, power, looks and etc.
They'll be on a stock '23 ish engine.

Kingston model "L"
Kingston "L-4" Has a repair where the idle needle threads in.

Holley "NM" This was on the engine used by the seller.

and my favorite,
Tillotson Model "C *something*-3-A"

Cheers!

Look again at that Holley. Are you sure it says "NM", or is it NH? I did a search for Holley NM, and found zilch.

Steve - That must be a New Mexico carb instead of a New Hampshire carb :-)
I hear it only works with tequila .

Four carbs on a std engine would be a bit much :-)
You'll need at least a OHV head to use all that air & gas..

four carbs

I don't know one from the other but, I sure do like my Kingston L4.

The Kingston L4 works fine on my car. If it needs a new throttle shaft, with a little work the NH throttle shaft will work.
