The kit is available from the outfit in MO. that picked up all the old Carter one and two barrel parts Edelbrock did not  want when they bought all the Carter four barrel stuff. I have to look up the outfit but last I heard they still had the right parts. What I did was I happen to find a rebuilt 1968 RBS redone on sale on EBAY and I replaced my RBS with that one . It was listed for a 1968 199 American but it worked perfectly on my 232 - 1969 Javelin. LRDaum 

Interesting. The 1969 also uses a throttle cable. (I have a 1969 199 American)....

purple 72Gremlin , your talking apples and oranges : The throttle has a cable but the accelerator is worked by kind of z shaped bar off the throttle linkage that pushes and pulls the accelerator pump up and down. It is a kind of Rube Goldberg arrangement. I'm talking accelerator pump. The shaft size for the pump for some reason unknown to common sense is a different diameter then just about every other RBS carburetor made. No idea why this is so , but the 1969 Carter RBS is an odd dog in that respect. LRDaum

Yes, The first one I believe . It has the larger accelerator pump shaft from looking at the picture. Just check and see that your RBS is a 1969 Carburetor. Some one could switched it like did. LRDaum

Here's the carb I got on the 1969 AMC Rambler, inline 6 199ci, 3 speed auto on the column. (Just in case you all forgot the car I'm needed this re build kit for)

Carter carbs had a three sided tag which identified them, that was attached to one of the upper bowl screws.  Yours appears to be missing.  If you contact Mike's carburetor parts with the information about what the carb supposedly was used on, he may be able to put together a proper carb rebuild kit for your part number.  There may also be a number stamped into the side of the throttle plate (bottom plate) on the carb which might have some chance of being unique to your carb.  Joe

I am loving this thread, learning a lot.

I have rebuilt one 1968, 199 ci. Stock rebuild. It had a Holley carb, never could get it to do right. I changed out to a Carter YF. I bought it from O'Reilys. Got a lot of info and parts from Mikes. Put a bigger jet in it and jumped my fuel mileage from 18 to 20 mpg.

The motor was in my 66 American convertible, The Rambler, now it is the power plant in Rapid Delivery.

My "new" 1969 American is an unmolested 199. I am going to check out the carb.

Having AMC Fun,

Figured out what carb (4666s RBS Carter 1 bbl) had and ordered the rebuild kit. Fast shipping and great price for the kit.

Thanks to all those that helped.

Rebuilt the carb. Only issue I'm having now is the throttle gets stuck.

Look through the service manual didn't see anything referencing stuck throttles. I might have to pull it back off but I should be able to fix it on the car.
