I am thinking of buying a new carb at the local auto parts store. I would like to buy a new 2100. Are all 2100's the same or are there different models for the different years? Do I need to ask for a 2100 for a 70 302 and do I need to specify for Mustang?
Thanks, Dave

While basically the same design, there are alot of varieties for the 2100, I think there are something like 7 or 8 venturi sizes,some fairly small ones, others quite large.If you are getting one from a generic rebuilder, I would definately tell the information from your car, you want to make sure you get the right style of throttle hook-up and choke hook-up.I see by your signature you have a 66? Is this the 302 you are talking about? If so,I would get the carb for a 66 289 Mustang-inorder to get correct linkage type, and the 66 carbs are a little simpler-no emissions or extra ports.I know the early 2100's used to be quite cheap from the autoparts stores-what you will get may not be a numbers correct Mustang carb, but it will be set up to work on your car.

kbstang is correct. The 2 2100 carb on my '78 Futura is really different from the one that came on my parent's '65 289 Ford wagon. I pulled a 2100 off a '65 390 Merc Montclaire and it was way too big for SPOC ('64.5 coupe body with 302). I finally had to get a rebuilt carb from Napa for a '65 289 and it ran great right out of the box. Unusual for a rebuild...
