   Well, the last Carter WO I rebuilt was back in 1985, and it took me through the Rubicon Trail 2-summers without protest and idled like a Singer sewing machine nice and smooth.
   I have found the drawings on the following page to be very helpful to understand how the carb systems and circuits function.

http://jeepdraw.com/images/jeepdraw/ADOBE_ACROBAT_FILES/TM9-1826A_Carburetor(539S).pdf

(you can 'save' this pdf to your hard-drive too) or Bookmark.
When viewing the document, there should be a 'save' icon in the upper right, then click on "save-as" and point to where you wish to save it on your hard-drive or a Thumb-drive.

   I am trying to re-educate myself on the Carter with hopes of installing one on my '46 L134 in the future. (my '46 currently has a Solex-clone - project)

   It looks like you have a few "Links" to explore in the future dayz.
Take your time and you'll have good direction from the group here. :)

   Look on the bottom flange, and there should be numbers stamped like "200" or "407" or "427" which should designate the Series 450, 539, 572 or 698.
(I just learned this from reading the above "link" attached). _ _ hahaha

If this isn't correct, the gurus with keep us straight. :)

   Enjoy,

   Len
