I've been running a Carter YF that came from a 300 cid 6 cyl Ford Bronco from the 80s, including the air cleanear combo for over 10 years. My Patrol reaches top rpms with ease. I'm happy with it.

The original Hitachi was fine but definitely had less power. The main jet carrier seized on the body and stripped the threads. Otherwise I might have kept it. It was easy to swap the main jet if you were going to higher altitudes. The change was from the ouside and done in less than 5 minutes. Good on fuel consumption too.

Getting a repair kit for the Carter is very easy as well.

My Aussie Ute has a Stromberg on it, and it runs great. I know other Aussies run the Stromberg and like it also.

I've recently swapped out my Rochester 1bbl for a Motorcraft 2150 2bbl with auto/electric choke and 2bbl-1bbl adapter. With the auto/electric choke the truck fires right up and runs smooth every time.

Per its reputation the Motorcraft has delivered fuel reliably at all of the odd angles that I've managed to get the truck into and is very responsive to throttle input. :twisted:

I'm still evaluating fuel efficiency (which I'm expecting to be improved from the Rochester) and will post that data back here when I've got it.

Michael at Gronk Performance (http://www.ebay.com/usr/ehrmannmp) jetted and tuned the carb specifically for the P motor and my elevation.

It's worth mentioning that after assembling the carb and adapter there is only enough room to run a low-profile air cleaner and 1.5 inch filter.

If you go with this carb you'll want the 1.08 Venturis for the P motor.

The original inspiration for this upgrade/mod came from this article: FORD MOTOCRAFT TWO-BARREL CARBURETOR = HILLBILLY FUEL INJECTION

Here are a couple vids of the engine running with the card installed and adjusted:
Vid #1 at engine bay.
Vid #2 at exhaust outlet.

Is anyone out there running a weber?
I have not stripped down my carb yet because she runs fine and as far as I know it's original...BUT I love the simplicity of the Webers.
Sorry, not a great shot of the carb!

Not on a P motor, but on an L-series...32/36 DG(A)V has been a great carb for me - built to a plan not a price, super easy to swap out jets and straightforward to rebuild.

Also 45 DCOEs...great midrange and top end, awesome sound and even more tuneable but possibly not the best option for a P motor since 4 intake ports feed 6 cylinders and a plenum to even out the pressures kinda defeats the purpose :lol:

Very cool! Great information. And your Patrol looks great. Nice to know you're getting some fun use out of it.

Thanks! After years in project mode it's good to be getting in some trail time with it. Now that the project is finally coming close to completion (these things are never really "done", are they?) I will retroactively post some aspects of the build that I hope might be useful to others on the forum. ;)

Any update on the Motorcraft 2150? Did you go with the "rebuilt" version or the "unmarked" casting? Are you still happy with performance (power/mpg/reliability)? I'm looking at doing this modification as well.

Ditto here, Strombergs are simple, and I thought that is what all US imported Patrols came with. I've had to play around with main-jetting to some extent but seems happy now.One thing to watch for, and I ran afoul of this is to make sure the carb insulator and associated gaskets have the cutout for the vacuum passage in the carb bottom flange. If you block it the high-speed cruise feature is disabled (won't work the internal piston) and you get full rich condition - resulting in bad mileage, fouled plugs etc.

I think you are thinking of the Rochester carb. You are absolutely correct about the insulator. I had forgotten about this but I actually took pictures to depict this. In the picture below, you can see the vacuum passage on the bottom of the carb, circled. The insulator on the left is the original one that has the cutout for the vacuum passage. The insulator on the right is a new one, that doesn't have the cutout for the vacuum passage. I had to cut it myself. This is very important, your Patrol will run too rich without this. Where have I heard that before? :think:

I never noticed that notch! I'm going to have to pull the carb and check now! Maybe that will help the mileage. Thanks River!

The 2150 carb came with and altitude compensator. It was found on early 80' Jeep products. A nice solution when fuel injection is not possible.
