RE: Driveability Problem



You may want to check with the carb vendors listed on the '62-'65 site's vendor's page. Also, if you can find a Carter BBD service manual, it should have the jet size. Maybe some one here has one they can look it up for you. 
http://carburetor-manual.com/1963-1964-1965-1966-plymouth-carter-carburetor-shop-manual-p-1309.html is a link to buy a manual.

http://c803310.r10.cf2.rackcdn.com/bbd_carburetor_manual.pdf is a manual online that may help (American Motors version).

How's this for a trial and error test? 

"To determine if you have the correct jets in your carburetor, operate
your vehicle for 20 minutes at sustained speeds. Stop and pull a plug.
Gray - Good, Black - move down one jet size, White - move up one jet
size. Do it all over again until you get a gray plug."
