I thought he sold adapters for the OEM air cleaner, too? In any case, I've seen writeups out there (on this forum, probably) for adapting the MC to the stock air cleaner. I think it's basically two pieces of plastic and some duct tape. The top size on an MC is the same as a TBI, so maybe search for that?

I would try your local auto parts store for this item. I have purchased two carbs from Kragen/O'rileys and they are factory refurbished and come with a warranty.

You do need to have a sharp counter person who is willing to call Holly up and verify the correct venture size is in stock but it is worth the effort. It has been a long time since I needed to purchase one but maybe these numbers are still good to get you started:

Holley remanufactured carb part numbers:
645118 , 645065, or 645340, or 645175, or 645174

I found # 645175 at Summit Racing, but the description is missing any real details:

This page lists several 2100 remans for the 304 and has the Holley tech support phone number at the bottom of the page:

I am running the rebuilt 2150 from the EBAY Guy "ehrmannmp" have been for about 3 years 21000+ miles. pretty straight forward install and much better performance than stock crap and miles of vaccum lines.
He has always replied promply to my emails about altitude jet changes, and even sent me new base gaskets when they leaked last year for free when I was just asking for part #'s.
I am now scrounging up the parts to do this on a friends jeep, and it is looking like it might be easier to just pay the $285 for his kit, IMO.

The new ones that he sells are not OEM Motorcrafts...they are an aftermarket clone with Ford internals. On the housing, there should be an embossed stamp showing the venturi size, etc.. and the one I got does not have any of that on it..
Here is a reply from him regarding a question pointed towards that subject:

These are aftermarket brand new. OEM ford carbs haven't been made since the late 80's. They are pretty good and I replace all internals w/ quality Walker parts (power valve, jets, accel pump, gaskets, etc. The ones I build for $280 are all original Ford parts.

It only hurts while you're breathing..
