Any suggestions for a better carb for a F134 Hurricane?

I rebuilt my carter yf about 5 years ago and got new throttle shaft bushings for it also. The major adjustment on it is the fuel metering rod but the rest is cake. Do not settle for the cheap solex replacement or you will be sorry.

Old AMC Jeeps had 1 barrels too. That stock carb on the 134 is a good carb. Use to wheel with a guy who had one and it ran good when tilted too

Rebuild the original, but do it correctly. Worn shafts can let air leak in.

Napa? Beware any rubber/plastic parts. Some of the old stock on the shelves may not be compatible with new gas. Best to find something without too much dust.

the engine isn't set up for unleaded gas anyway with the original valve train. just get a kit and rebuild it with the parts in it. by the time those rubber and/or plastic parts succumb to the gas, your engine will be screaming for a rebuild or replacement anyway.

It's not the unleaded fuel that kills the rubber, its the ethanol. Some guys mix a litte aviation fuel in to overcome the lead issue.
