I just made a purchase and hope it will work.  I bought the correct carbs for a 1964 automatic dual quad setup.  Front carb is a 3645 and the rear is a 3646.  Any problem using this on the '65?  I haven't studied the manual trans linkage so I don't know what differences there might be.  I also notice that the rear carb has a vacuum port plumbed below the throttle blades.  See pictures below.  I know the front carb is the same number for '65 and hope the 3646 will work well in the rear.  Any comments?

I'll have a couple of incorrect carbs to sell now......

Some linkage and mounting parts came with the carbs and the aluminum bracket in the pictures I don't recognize.  Anybody know what this is for??  Be sure to look beyond Danica in the next to last picture so you can see the part number  :-)

Thanks,

Chuck

One last question......where do you get the heat riser tube for the automatic choke?  Are there sources available or do you fab your own?


Thanks,

Fab your own from steel brake line tubing. The brass nut at the carb is a std plumbing supply item.
