Sources for Motorcraft 2150 Carburetors?

Hi all. New member reaching out for some help. Will post pics of my Jeeps soon.

Does anyone have a current source for new/reman 2150s, besides BJs and TGW?
Nothing against them - love them - just exploring all options.

My new 79 J20 may need carb replaced. Tech having trouble w rebuild, so I

My guess would be any big parts store like Napa, Auto Zone, O'Reilly's.

See if Carburetors USA will refresh it, repair it.
A couple members had good luck with them. We could do a search and find the thread. I htink a screw hole had stripped out or somehting beyond the member' skills, so he sent it there. Location was around Audabon S. Jersey IIRC.

here's the thread:http://www.ifsja.org/forums/vb/showthread.php?t=80335

As far as typing here. Apparently when using some newer browsers, or maybe just cell phones, apostrophes will cut off the message.

10 years ago maybe, I bought a reman from advance auto - don't know if you still could, but I'd check around the parts stores for sure.

One note on remans from places like that: there are 2 sizes of the 2100 - 1.08 and 1.21, refering to the venturi size. It's usually stamped/casted into the side of the carb body. On a v8 it probably won't matter much, but if going onto a stock six, the 1.21 might be too much carb. There seems to be more of the big ones out there than the small ones, and I don't think the remans specify which body you're getting. There's plenty of info on here about this, and also on the older fordtruck sites as well.

IIRC, the 2150 was just the high altitude version of the 2100?

And +1 on the apostrophe glitch when posting here with a phone.

Some good points to be aware there!

Off the top of my head the 2150 added the high altitude anaroid (sp?)

A difference I've seen between years is whether the bowl vent for when the engine is off is mechanically operated. I don't know what year it switched to an in-line solenoid valve. Those solenoid valves are unobtainium when I last looked. If you're 79 is set up with a mechanical one, stick with that.

Since he's in SC, he could get a 2100 and be fine, right? Not much need for high altitude compensation at sea level and I'm guessing the 2100 might be easier to find. How interchangeable are the two models?

Last 2150 I had rebuilt was done by these folks. Worked perfectly.

There was a guy selling 2100/2150 conversion kits and complete new carbureotrs on eBay, DBA Gronk Performance. He has a Facebook page, though not as much of a presence on eBay now. You might contact him.

The 2150s I recall were reproductions sourced from overseas, IIRC. I can still find new 2150s for Fords but not for Jeeps. The Jeep 2150 used an aneroid (altitude compensator) which the Ford carburetors seem to be missing.

Any competent carburetor shop should be able to rebuild your 2150, even if it's worn out. They routinely can repair the carburetor body where the throttle plates pivot. That's where they get worn typically, and leak air.
