I've recently picked up an '80 Scout II with a Holley four-barrel carb. I need to identify it so I can buy a rebuild kit. The only numbers on the carb body are P-80 and 11064. None of these numbers match a Holley model number. Anyone have any idea what I've got here?
Its a Carter Thermoquad or TQ. The best $75 you may ever spend should go to buying a set of service manuals for '78-'80 Scout II. They are available from all the Scout Light Line Dealers listed in the Vendor section. Some of the best known: The Scout Connection, Giddium'Up Scout, Super Scout Specialists, Anything Scout and there is more. There are also other good IHC BBs: www.binderbulletin.org and www.anythingscout.com Check out the IHC Web Ring too. Hope this helps. DougS [email protected]
Scouts never came with Holley 4bbls, so it sounds like your carb isn't original. Is it spread-bore or square-bore?
Holly never made a Thermoquad, but they do make a quadrajet (spreadbore) that they advertise as a
replacement for a Thermoquad. A Thermoquad is easy to spot by the black plastic body with aluminum
above and below.
