the one barrel carb that ford put on the inline six was an easy carb to rebuild. get yourself a good kit and rebuild it. if you dont feel like doing the rebuild yourself, get a reman from your local parts store and install it yourself, as indicated its just a couple of bolts to remove the carb and a bit of linkage. one thing, remember to replace the gasket between the carb adapter and the intake as that gasket often doesnt get replaced and tends to have vacuum leaks due to age.
my mind is aglow with whirling transient nodes of thought careening through a cosmic vapor of invention.
