WCD AND WCFB FLOAT GAUGES

 

HISTORY

The earliest reference in my possession for Carter carburetor special tools is 1932. This is not the first, as this form states that it supersedes a previous form. Most of the tools in this group carried 5-digit part numbers, with a few using a prefix of T52; but some of the tools (specifically, the tool box and various float gauges) carried no part number period. The box was sold only when the customer purchased a complete set of tools. The float gauges were sold as a part of a 10 piece gauge set. Carter did have a footnote that the various float gauges could be special-ordered individual, and the customer was to order by size.

In January 1936, several of the original tools were modified to cover additional applications, and a letter appended to the right of the 5-digit part number designating a revised tool.

At some point between January 1936 and June 1938, Carter revised the numbering system for all tools. Since the mid-1920's, Carter had used a prefix/suffix numbering system for parts, where the prefix referenced the type of part (20 indicated a round washer, 25 indicated a fuel valve, etc.). Carter now issued the prefix 109 for tools, but added the letter "T" to the left of the 109; thus the tool prefix became a T109. The few T52 numbers were left unchanged. All of the original tools were retained, but new production of these tools carried the T109 prefix and a sequential number, rather than the old 5 digit number

GENERAL

The primary focus of this page is to offer Carter tools for sale, but the secondary focus is to offer information about Carter tools to our customers. There are a number of tools pictured which have no prices, and a very few tools which have a description, but no picture or price. The tools with prices are for sale. We do not currently have the tools with/without pictures, and no prices. ALL of the tools pictured on this page, and for sale by us are genuine, original tools, made in the USA and originally sold by the Carter Carburetor Company. We do not offer modern reproductions of these tools.

MANY carburetor special tools can be replaced by items that most mechanics will have in their shop. For example, float level gauges may normally be replaced by drill bits for most one and two barrel carburetors. Many of the early four barrel floats must be adjusted for side play as well as height. The special tools are quite useful for these. Special straight-shank screwdrivers can be made from regular screwdrivers by grinding off the wedge. The tools presented here are for the professional, or for the collector who just has to have everything. These are original tools, most used, but in like-new condition. Metering rod gauges will be sold only with the purchase of a rebuilding kit. Other tools may be ordered ala carte. Order by tool part number.

While Carter did offer these tools ala carte, Carter also offered comprehensive tool kits. These were available as follows: (1) Master Technician Tool Kit (containing most, but not all, currently available tools for all makes of vehicles), (2) Junior Technician Tool Kit (containing fewer tools than the Master Kit, but still the tools generally needed for all makes of vehicles), (3) Dealer Tool Kits for various makes of vehicles (contained most of the available tools for a specific make of vehicle, ie Chevrolet, Pontiac, Packard, etc.). A very few of the most expensive special tools were not included in any of the tool kits, but sold ala carte. We can generally furnish any of the Master, Junior, or Dealer kits, with the total price substantially discounted from buying all of the individual tools in the kit.

COMPREHENSIVE TOOL KITS

There were several versions of the later Master Technician, Junior Technician, and Dealer tool kits from 1938 to 1957, with tools being added as needed; but no tools being removed. When selling these kits, we use the newest bill-of-materials for the kits. Call for availability and prices on these kits.
