The Edelbrock #1403 carburetor is the ideal replacement for the R-1 Avanti, as well as Studebaker 259 and 289 engines.
Edelbrock's Performer carburetors feature two-piece, all-aluminum construction for cooler operating temperatures and less warping. There are no gaskets below the fuel bowl level for fewer leaks, and no plastic parts or power valves to blow out. The carbs use easily changed metering rods for precise tuning, non-adjustable secondary air valves, and the primary venturi booster is a bottom-feed design for smoother acceleration and better drivability. Also included with every Edelbrock carburetor you will receive a 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
