78 Traveller carb and intake manifolds

I'm getting ready to try to get my Scout back into operation. One problem I have is the Carb. It has the stock one, but it has been worked on by someone besides me who didnb't know what he was doing. Is there a better two barrel to use? List number#? If I go to a four bar., which manifold would be best for low and mid-range torque, and economy (in a Scout??!!!). What four barrel carb. I'm not going to do this right away, but soon. I also have to get the heads rebuilt and the 727 worked over too.

Re: 78 Traveller carb and intake manifolds

Your carb is probably the Holley 2210C. There is also the Holley 2300 that is available in 350 cfm and 500cfm. 4-barrel manifolds available are a square bore and a spread bore. You want the latter. Spreadbore carbs available are Carter Thermoquad(TQ), the Rochester Quadrajet(Q-Jet) and a number of Holleys too. The TQ was the stock IH 4-barrel for non-California Scouts. There is a really great write-up on ScoutII's in the December issue of 4X4 Power mag. You should also check out the links in this web site like the Binder Bulletin and the IHC WebRing.

Have you had the distributer rebuild yet? Orange County Speed and Crome in Orange California did mine, and I got an extra 3mpg just from that.
When you get your trans rebuilt ask them to bring it up to the Barracuda spec's. You'll get a better clutch and 4 planetary gears insted
of 3. as for the carb.. I'm thinking of using the Holly Pro-injection.

I've heard good things about the Edelbrock Performer series (same design as the Carter AFB, I believe). These
fit on the square bore manifold, though the primaries are smaller than the secondaries like a spreadbore - which
should help fuel mileage (depending on your driving habits).
