Re: Carb for Scout II

First, the engine size is stamped into a flat spot on the engine block about 1" square on the passenger side in
the area of the fuel pump and the passenger side engine mount. If it's a v8, it's either a 304 or a 345. If it's a 4
cylinder, it's a 196 (I don't think Scouts were still offered with the I-6 in '77, but if so it's an AMC 258). Most of
the V8s came with a holley 2bbl - usually a 2210C, but some were the 2300. These have a common bolt
pattern - the same as the Ford Motorcraft 2bbls that came on many Fords, Jeeps, etc. Later, they started to
get the Carter Thermoquad spread-bore 4bbl.
