My son brought the carb off his 292 over to me to rebuild. It is a 2100 1.23. I think this carb is too big for the engine. What size should he have (2100 wise)? I don't want to go back to the original type. Does anyone have one? Thanks. John

.........what numbers are on the carb foot by the throttle linkage?

Do you have the stock cam or any mods on the engine?

I have several 1.08's and 1.21's made for small bock fords that might work better.

a higher perf cam MIGHT be able to make use of that bigger carb. As a reference, the mid-sixties 289 Mustangs used 1.145" 2100's...I've seen small-block truck carbs as small as 1.00".

The numbers on the base are 8A-C(?)A. The engine is stock. 4 speed. 5.13 rear gear(stock). What are the prices on the carbs? Thanks. John

The original 2100 for a 292 is the 1.02 venturi. 1.08 for 289 302 is a better choice than the original in a stock engine, and was available for trucks with manual choke. 1.21 and 1.23 are too large.
