  1. I have a 62 340 h p 4 bbl carb vette. Is this the original replacement filter? My car had an edelbrock carb on it and I am going back with the original afb carb. I bought the fuel line but I need the filter to make the fuel line installation complete. If you have this item in stock I will order it from you.
