Switching to MC2150

So I picked up at motorcraft 2150 from the junk yard the otherrl day. I found it on a 85 ford ranger. To my suprise after doing a little research be for I pulled it off, it was the perfect size for my 258. It is a 1.08 so that is about 200 cfm if I remember correctly.
So I pulled it off and brought it home. I ordered a rebuild kit from autozone and picked it up yesterday. I also tore yhe carb apart and to my suprize this carb is sooo simple. It makes the old carter look like rocket science. So I cleaned it up and dropped it in the carb dip till it was all clean. Then I rinsed and dried it off. I decided to paint it so I taped off all the linkage and holes and sprayed it with high temp engine paint. Tonight I hope to build it back up and start the install.
Ill post pics in a little bit.

Some back story. I rebuild my carter bc of idle issues and the choke wasn't working. During the rebuild I found some broken parts in the stepper motor but I left them alone. I put it back on and it worked perfect other than the fact that the jeep wouldn't start unless I put gas in the bowl. Then it would startup just fine and run good. I would have to do this every time I went to start it after it had been cold.
So during all of this I have been keeping an eye out of another carb and one day in the junk yard I ran across the ranger and decided to pull the trigger. I can't drive the jeep right now due to a tire problem so it seemed like a good time to do it.(tread was separating in the middle from the inside, so it was horrible to drive. Will be posting new tires when I find some. I'm not looking forward to buying 35s though lots of $$$$

smurf carb It might take plugging some ports not applicable to the 258, but with some work you should be able to get it running. There's even a way to mount the factory air cleaner if you still have it

The only one I don't recognize is the one coming out of the D side by the throttle pull. Good thing you got pictures, and maybe you could make something of a Ranger manual or something

Well I assembled the carb now I need to find a good float setting and get an adapter plate. I tried to make one out of the spacer that was on the ranger but I ended up braking it so now I have to wait a little bit longer. I might pull the manifold and clean and paint it too we will have to see how long it takes me to get the adapter.

Here it is as it sits for now

Set it at whatever height is specified in the rebuild kit instructions.

'84 CJ-7: Yota axles (spartan locked front, e-locked rear) 4" BDS, 1" Daystar & 3/8" shackle lifts, 35" X-Terrains on steelies, YJ Tub & family roll bar, heater blower upgrade, 4.2L w/MC2100 & Team Rush, Warn 8274. Rebuilt 4.2/4.0 hybrid, AX15 and twin sticks/clocking ring waiting to go in.

The advertised position for a topless, dirty jeep girl has been filled......by my wife. Thanks to all that applied.
<------------and yes, that is her.

The rebuild kit is for the carb on a ford ranger there are no rebuild kits for that carb on a CJ. That's why I am asking on here bc other people have put them on and I want to know their results.

Float height isn't something that's typically vehicle specific. Mine was set as per the rebuild kit and runs fine.
