Hi
I suspect the carb on engine in my car may not be the correct one. Any help, information appreciated. Also, will the correct carb have tubes or jets?
thank you

.
1 bbl, 2 bbl or 4 bbl? Standard or Automatic? Detroit built or Newark built (based on the VIN)?

The listing includes Carter carbs (the ones with 4 digit stampings) and Stromberg carbs (with the WW in theirs).

That "26418" is actually 2641S which is, apparently, a 4 bbl:

I think 2604 is a one barrel:

Looks like 2646S is a 2 bbl:

The WW-15-28 is a Stromberg 2 bbl:

2813S is a Carter 4 bbl:

Good luck
