Re: [DML] Conversions



The Autolite/Motorcraft 2100 series was one of the most widely used carburetors in this country. It was Ford's frontline 2 barrel carb (for engine displacements above 171 cubic inches) for a quarter century. AMC used it on cars and Jeeps, and Chrysler continued to use it on certain models until 1991 (trivia: the last new model carbureted vehicle built in the United States -- 1991 Jeep Grand Wagoneer -- used a Motorcraft 2150). The assertion that 2100's are obscure or unknown is beyond laughable. Every parts house stocks rebuild kits for crying out loud (about $15 thank you very much). Several people made the comment to me at DCS "I've got that same carb on my Mustang" or "I've got that same carb on my truck." The Internet is full of people showing you how to take one apart and put it back together, which really is no big deal because it is such a simple design. An owner could do worse than to replace rare (in this country) and unknown K-Jet with a 2100.

IMHO.
