Default Ford 6 cyl. 300 carb number ?

Could you guys that have this engine tell me your carb number please ?

I have a Motorcraft Industrial carb on mine and the rebuild kit is $200 !!!!! I want to put a more normal carb on it like a Carter but I can't use the year of my snowcat to look for the carb 'cause the industrial engine is different and more like an older motor but what year ???

I would prefer a manual choke so I don't have to also buy an air filter housing.

Thanks in advance

I'm still hoping someone will take a minute to write down the number from their carb for me.

I know it's a Carter YF but I have terrible luck with things and choosing randomly from hundreds of carburetors seems like asking for trouble.

Maybe having to give the Napa guys every bit of info on a vehicle including the seat style to buy a headlight bulb ( a little exaggeration there...) has burned my brain but I keep thinking there must be something a little more scientific to buying a fuel metering device than throwing a dart at a parts book !

Thanks

This is the Motorcraft industrial carb. New price $1000. Core value $200.

You might want to take a look at this page, scroll down they have a carb for sale off a Ford 300. Pehaps they have a number:

Thanks very much for the help, guys

The RemoteAccess one is off a 601/602/Spryte. A friend is looking for a carb for a 601. His engine is a 223 I6. Some Sprytes had the 200 ci engine. I suspect the bolt spacing is different since I've never seen carbs for the 223 or 200 grouped with the 240 and 300 ci engine carbs. I'll call them Monday and ask.

The RockAuto is a great price and I'll definately consider that one.

Thanks again to both of you

Edit: some research says the RemoteAccess carb fits a 223 from 1965. Carb # C2JZ-9510B

In case anyone else needs to carburetor hunt for a Ford engine, here is a site with some of the letters and numbers decoded.

J as the third letter indicates an Industrial carb ( whatever that means ).

I found a fantastic carburetor everything place in New York.
I have tried to stump them with odd stuff but to no avail!
These guys have been in the carb business since 1900 in the same spot.
Treadwell Carburetor company.
Treadwell New York.
607-829-8321
They will ask a billion questions but they have the stuff.
Yes, they do rebuilds at a REASONABLE cost.
I very very highly recomend them.

Some more carb hunter info. A long list of engines, years and the carbs that go with them.

About the third time I looked at that page I found the carb off the 300. It looks just like the one I have. The carb for the 601/602/Spryte is $500.

I've sent the carb to Treadwell. They say most rebuilds are $145 but might be $165. We'll see what happens !!

Thanks for the help !!!

I got the carb back from Treadwell. $185 (when you add in shipping) to have someone else rebuild it and clean it

Just in time for a snowstorm

This is in 26" of powdery snow: our accumulation for the year, so far.

Glad you got it rolling in time for the storm. I know someone else up there that has a carb that needs a rebuild!

so how did they do on the rebuild? notice a big difference from when it was running before? put some seafoam in the tank at the end of the year and run it a while.

When I sent it to them, pieces of the rubber seal thing on the accelerator pump were missing. It leaked like a sieve.

It ran great right away... no adjustments needed Seems about the same as before I started having problems.

We only got 8-10" of snow. I wanted more
