Where is the best place to find a replacement carb for my 76 F100 with the inline? It is a 1bbl

summit sels a carter yf remanufactured by holley fairly cheap for a carb. if i recall its less than 200 with no core i have one that possibly needs rebuilt that im willing to part with once i finish my 2bbl swap (hopefully this week) it came off my 250 granada i think they are about the same but it might be something to research. i believe autozone or advance and possibly orielys carries them too but not sure on the price

I'm looking for the stock 1 bbl that was on the truck. Looks like Autozone or O'Reilly carry them in the $200 range as well. I was wondering if there was an alternative carb that people here used that they found gave superior performance or reliability at a better cost.

You might want to check with Rock Auto. A while back, I was able to get a Carter YF [1970 F350 - no emmissions] for $109 without a core charge. It was remanufactured by Autoline of Canada and has performed very well.

Good suggestion. Best price yet - $135+$60 core. I have a core so no problem there.

They are getting rarer and more expensive, but ebay may still be best place. I pick cores up when I see them cheap as I know they will only become more $$$ and rarer. That probably do me rest of my life if I am honest with myself. As long as I can get rebuild kits. The ones from the chain stores tend to been cleaned and kit thrown in by minimum wage people or third world people that may never have seen a carb before. No check made on shaft wear and no flow bench testing. So you can pay a lot for a "clean repainted core" that you still have to rebuild. Or you may get lucky. Ask yourself when you hand over your $200, "do I feel lucky today????"

Holley 2bbl and Weber 38/38 still made and sold brand new. Not cheap and they have to be "dialed in" with proper jets, etc to work on a 300. But for those of us sticking with carb vehicles as long as possible, those might eventually be only realistic choices.

i got the 2150 on my 86 it runs better than it did before and i have less than 100 bucks in the swap 40 for the carb(used) 40 for the adapter(got it from summit it did require some very minor cutting with a die grinder) and 10 bucks at the junkyard for cables and brackets plus if i decide to upgrade the intake i have the carb. for anyone looking to get rid of the carter I'd suggest the 2100/2150 or a 350 holley two barrel

I went with the direct replacement from Rock Auto. Bolted right in and works fine. Thanks all!
