Re: Ease of aftermarket 258 carb inatallation???
Don't buy a new 2100 for $150, thats way to much. Search on this board for 2100 and you will find all the info you need to pick up one from a junkyard and a simple rebuild kit. The model you need has a 1.08 stamped on the side. I bought the carb $35, rebuild kit $15 (Autozone), Adapter $24 (Mr Gasket) and made a mini linkage with a 3" x 1" piece of metal. Most Ford V-8 (302) from the 70's to early 80 had these carbs. I love mine and it is extremely easy to install and rebuild. It idles better than my Carter ever thought to.
If you need more info I would be glad to help. This is a mod that almost cannot go wrong.
