What kind of condition are you looking for? I'm sure you're aware that finding one in perfect shape is next to impossible. I can check with the guy I get parts from. It may not be perfect, but will be for the correct 2bbl. I would be willing to get it for you for what I would get it for. Not sure what shipping would be. I guess it depends what you are willing to pay.

markymark.....Which 2bbl do you have? The standard 2bbl is larger than the one for the 420E. The throat opening for each is different......John

Thanks for the response-Im not too sure which carb I have -Ill have to check it out-according to the shop manual the choke system is a bit different and mine looks identical to the 2gc in the shop manual. Anything else to look for?

Blue Bomber, thanks for the lead. I dont really care too much about condition, as long as its decent. My 70's aircleaner on it now is atrocious. Are the filters easy to come by with originals?

All the Rochester 2GC carbs have the same diameter throat and you should have no problem clearing the choke assembly, since the air cleaner is dished on the bottom. I will check tomorrow, to see if he has any. I am not interested in making money, just helping out when I can. The air cleaner elements a standard size that should be readily available to you. I will get the number of the one I have. I will let you know as soon as I hear something..Sound okay?

markymark.....The standard 2bbl is larger, and has the choke housing mounted at the base of the carb with a linkage up to the choke plate. The smaller "420E" carb has the choke housing mounted to the main body close to the throat, just like the center carb of a Tri-Power. There are two different part numbers for these because the "420E" has a smaller throat than most Rochester 2GCs......John

Well mines definitely the standard variety then based on the choke position. Good to know. Thanks.

Mark- I have not forgot about you. I am on the hunt for a decent air cleaner. The one I found was too rusty to even bother with. My friend's Dad is looking through his "collection". As soon as I hear something, I will let you know. I check with him almost daily. Chad

I had about 10 of these at one point. Seemed like every car I bought had one on the carb and 3 in the truck. I forget which car I threw them all in when I sold it. easiest way to get rid of parts hahaha

I'll see if I have any laying around

I am still looking....The ones I found were too far gone to be of any use. Just about every one had rust holes where the other did not. I have not forgotten....the needle in the haystack theory comes into play here somewhere. I have a few more leads and I won't give up.....Chad
