Raise your hand if you have a Carter or Edelbrock carburetor in your project vehicle. OK, so that's the majority it seems. Now, how many of you know how to properly rebuild and modify your carburetor for increased life and performance? OK, not nearly as many hands up this time. CarTech Books has just released a new wealth of information in the manual How to Rebuild and Modify Carter/Edelbrock Carburetors: Performance, Street and Off-Road Applications.

Author Dave Emanuel has seven technically oriented books and over 2,000 magazine articles to his credit, making him one of the most respected automotive writers today. This book "reflects the emergence of Edelbrock carburetors as the predominant Carter-style carburetors on the market."

Flip through the pages and review over 300 highly detailed photographs, illustrations, diagrams, and more covering the entire rebuilding process, tuning, and modifications. Along with the many great tips we found in this volume, we also thoroughly appreciated Emanuel's style of instruction for particular modifications: Not only does he clearly explain how to perform the modifications, but he also explains why or why not you should do them. Such an approach could be invaluable to newly initiated off-road enthusiasts and long-time wheelers alike.

This book is sure to become a garage bible. To purchase your own copy, contact CarTech Books at (800) 551-4754 or
