    I purchased the 2150 from the eBay guy, years ago. Have had great luck with it ever since. I ran it thru emissions twice and didn't have an issue. I don't have to do emissions anymore though. I have people all the time comment "I can't believe your rig has a carb on it". I will say that it doesn't mind straight up and down, but on its side, it dies pretty quickly. All that being said, I'm at the stage where as soon as I do my V-8 swap, my carb days will be over.

    Runs great on stuff like this :


    Dies fast like this :

    Thanks for the input! Glad to hear it works well. Do you have a working EGR or smog system in place?

    When I last did emissions, all the parts were there, but not many were functional. They took awhile to inspect, but I passed. I have a classic policy now , so no testing is needed.

    Don't have the failing paperwork, all I remember is that the mechanic had to adjust the carb before taking it to the testing place and getting it to pass himself.

    Do they roller you or are you 'idle only'. (If you have a full time four wheel drive like a quadra trac they will not run you on the rollers).

    They do a visual inspection to make sure things are connected and that the hoses are not cracked. They don't check for functionality.

    For an '83 you probably are tested for co2 and hydrocarbons but not Nox.

    I'm not sure, I haven't gone to the emissions place with my brother in law. Good to know they don't check for functionality ... Who knows if 30 + year old emission components still work lol!

    Not always the carb, but it would be nice to know the numbers from the emissions test. Never know on a old carb what was messed with? How is the motor's condition, or the emissions equipment. The emissions equipment really does not hurt the performance of a properly running motor if is hooked up correctly and the parts are working right.

    I'll post up numbers if we get a failing test after the trans is fixed. The motor runs well other than some rough idling. Around 12 mpg so I have to believe something could be improved. Everything is hooked up currently because it has been able to pass emissions with the right carb tweaks.

    Just for giggles, have your ignition module checked at asutozone / oreally's.... motocraft is multi stage and commly fails mid range.... will emulate bad carb. I run dual, woth "new" one being backup that IS can change to easily.

    Other common fail I have seen is vac advance on distributor- people remove check valve, allowing fuel vapor to destroy diaphragm. Apply vacum (suck on hose), see if holds or leaks.

    They do test for NOx (I took 8 Scramblers through each year)

    We swapped carbs with a 2150 via the ebay kit, a fairly simple job once the vacuum lines are sorted. It is back on the road as of last Christmas. It's great to have it running again!
