    Any updates?

    I have a '65 Commando 383 that I'd like to make into a driver/sleeper as well.

    Pre 1968's had an AFB.
    In the '68 model year, these were changed to an AVS with the exception of the Hemi.

    The carburetors look similar, at a glance but, the AFB has seperate air/fuel mixture adjustment screws and the AVS has a single air/fuel adjustment screw.

    From what I understand, the change was made from the AFB to the AVS to allow for coming emission standards and the AVS burns leaner at idle.
