replacing carb
« on: February 17, 2015, 08:25:28 PM »
What is the best and cheapest carb to replace the original 2bbl on a 75 2.3
I ran into some one a year ago and they told me they just got an old one from a truck 302 turned it sideways to fit on the stock manifold and hooked it up with a ten speed bike cable .
I am in Phoenix AZ if there is any one here in town ... Any way any suggestions thank you

Bible book of carbs rule #1...............best and cheapest do not belong in the same sentence together. Those that think they do use ten speed bike cables........ ............LO L
