Wow if that's a carter YF then they must have changed it quite a bit because mine looks nothing like those pictures.

Yeah just to make sure I went back to some pictures of my old 232. The YF defenatly doesnt look like that. The YF looks like


That carburator looks more like what I pulled off the 258 I rebuilt which I assume was the carter BBD non feedback, not 100% sure since I didnt use it or rebuild it but it is defenatly a 2 barrel that looks like this

I know the BBD has the bowl vent port. Does the YF? That seems to be the biggest difference I notice.

I'd say it's the older non feedback BBD.

Looks like the old choke style too. ( non electric) And I can't tell from pictures but it looks not to be hooked up......

Yes the YF has a bowl vent. It's built into the top half of the carb not like the plastic on the BBD. You can see it in my picture of the YF.


Actually in my picture its the nipple with the white cap on it. I didn't have it hooked up to the carbon canister for about a year. Suprisingly it ran just fine.

not bringing it back to stock, my father refuses to let me buy a rebuild kit because he says they never turn out right, so i guess im looking to replace it from what i have looked up its a carter 2425, which is a 2 barrel from what i've read..

I ended up putting a Howell TBI on mine. A bit more than a carb but it starts and runs perfectly in all weather no need for it to warm up on cold days.

you got a few options if you're going new. most here will tell you to get a weber or motorcraft carb as they are known to be better all around than the carters. I just swapped out my carter BBD to a Motorcraft 2150.
what's your budget for a replacement carb?

also, many here will also tell you that a rebuild kit isn't a bad thing, and mostly goes bad if it's not done properly.. but no need to tell your pops ; )

certainly a BBD carb. Rebuild kits are cheap and a lot cheaper than a Weber.

Most rebuild go bad when you loose a part or forget to set something.

Sometimes the throttle bushings go bad and you need to get them replaced.

If you are going to buy a new one then the price difference between a Weber and Carter is not that much.

And webers are not always "plug and play" after installation. Plenty of people here to help get it set up correctly.
