    Deffinatelly not trying to upgrade to that one, the po had it installed, it works horrible it seems like it doesn't get the needed amount of fuel to the engine, I'm looking to just get the original factory carb for F engine wich I think will be a deffinate better upgrade from this rochester .....

    They are quite common. MAF sold the Rochester 2 jet as an "upgrade" for years.

    I had a Rochester 2 Jet on mine when I bought it before going back to a Jim C rebuilt original carb. Mine worked okay but not great for about 8 months. Switch that sucker out.

    I had a carter on my rig when I originally bought it, I had nothing but trouble with it, then mark hooked me up with a nice stock aisin carb that I rebuilt and put in, haven't had a problem since.

    That's what I'm running... never thought I had a problem. Runs 65-70 just fine.

    Maybe I'm missing something?
