Motorcraft 2150 problems

I got a 2150 out of a Ranger. I got a Holly to Rochester adapter from Napa and one from a local speed shop. Both of the adapters will work with one exception. The adapter doesn't cover the whole base plate of the carb. Part of the PCV vaccume is exposed. Should I look for a different carb or ????

Re: Motorcraft 2150 problems

does hte adapter flip over and fit the other way?

IM not usre i understand a few things here, first why are you wanting a 2150 instead of a 2100?

and what year ranger did the carb come from.

Im not sure, but Ive never seen a smaller body ranger ( compact pickup) with a autolite carb 2100/2150 butI havent seen many rangers at all.

the 2100/2150 are dime a dozen on Ford small blocks, CJ,wagoneer,Cherokee/J truck V8s.

can you post a pic of the carb you have?

I dont have any photos of a 2100 or Id try and help out

Re: Motorcraft 2150 problems

Your putting it on a 258?

Are you sure you have the adapter the right way up?

I was amazed at the difference in size with the bolt patterns.
Do you have the right adapter? The one from the MC2100 Swap instructions? Large 2 Barrel to Small 2 Barrel?

Re: Motorcraft 2150 problems

I was told the 2150 and the 2100 were the same. The one I have came off of a 1985 Ranger with a 2.8L. It has the 1.08 stamped of the side. The adapter isn't big enough any way you put it on. I got it in excellent condition not needing rebuilt for $40. That is why I got it. Should I use it as a core charge for a rebuild from the auto parts store? If so, what make, model, year, carb should I get? Or should I make an adapter for it?

Re: Motorcraft 2150 problems

When I put the 2100 on my '83 CJ8 I had a huge vacuum leak using the gaskets supplied with the adapter plate. I stopped at a chain parts store and asked to see the carb spacer and gaskets for (I think) an '84 F-150 w/ a 302. I used the spacer and gasket between the carb and adapter and it solved the leak.

Re: Motorcraft 2150 problems

I got the gasket/spacer off the 84 F150 302. It is a hard fuel resistant cardbord like material. It was exactly what I needed.

Re: Motorcraft 2150 problems

They are essentially the same but the 2150 has an Altitude Compensation Module on it. I "think" that is the correct descpription.
