What carb?

I just bought a 2004 arctic cat 500. It is in Pieces. My question is what carb should it have? The carb that came with the.bix of parts is a CVK 40LA AREJ. Everything I read says it should be a CVK 36. I’m just going to replace it but not sure what to buy for it

Confirm air intake boot and carb flange fit that carb. It may have been modified but yes, original carb is a CVK36.

You might be able to make the 40 work, but I'd put it up on eBay.
