Is there just 5 lines commin into that carb (not inc fuel)?
How many use? Y? Cap? (like the cfm and throat size, scared of all that other stuff).

I think they're all vents and vacuum stubs. It's either or afaict. I had to look up diagrams to figure out which one was the ported vacuum and marked it with a sharpie. Here's a pic with the valve cover on. I think this carb will run rich, real rich on a 200. A jeep carb would be the best bet and adjust the jet's if need be. But for me it really doesn't matter at all. I'm getting to computer control. Electronics, that's what it's all about. I understand that and I'll figure it out. I had an Atari 400, 800xl, C64, C128, Amiga 500 and so on to this day. I know a motorola 68000 from an intel 80286. 040 or 486. I don't have a problem with technology. The electronics, the software interface, sensor signalling, wiring etc it's is all pretty basic. It's the tuning that's going to be the learning curve.

I like the BBDs small size + no milling on the intake.

How tall is the BBD?

Im wondering if a Vintage Inlines Weber adapter will work with the BBD.

Once I get the 250 in my 67 I will see how much hood room I have.

It is 4 5/16" from the base to the air cleaner mount. Be advised the non jeep versions of this carb require you to fab a choke cable hold and use manual choke only. The use manifold mounted choke coils in their oem applications. Also it has to be mounted up off the log enough to have the linkage clear. Using a weber adapter would still require you to make another adapter or find one if they're made. The webber has a larger footprint than the small BBDs or 2GCs. Choke linkage at the top requires more height to clear.

The two vacuum ports pointing toward the valve cover. Could you pull the tubes out, tap the holes, and install plugs or 90 degree fittings?

Maybe. Or you could stick a rubber 90* on there and cap the other. They are close but not that close to the vc. With a 1" adapter you can get a hose on there no problem, even w/ a 3/4" adapter I'm sure. You need some rise for the throttle linkage anyway. If you "censored" the carb like 63wagon you have more clearance still.

Edit: Apparently c*cked is censored. Ahem, if you "skew" the carb. You don't have to skew it to much. Skew it just right to fit all the screws that need to go in and through it. The way that 63falcon4drwagon did it made the bolts work and maximized the area in the mounting pad that could be opened up. I guess clocking it is ok to.
