I have found a carb at my local snatch and grab...er, pick n pull. It says its a 1.08 venturi size but no other discernible markings. Its in an older model Ford Ranger 2.8. Last year of carburetion, far as I can tell. What are the chances its the 2100 or 2150?

I'd say pretty good it's a 2150, just looked up what carb came on the 2.8 and the last year it was used was 85, says 2150

85 sounds about right. And those MC carbs are popular. This pick and pull has literally thousands of vehicles and a couple hundred ford trucks and suvs and this was the only one that had a carb. Going back this weekend and look again.

Well I'd at least rebuild it since it's from a junkyard.. you might have to rejet it since it's being used in a different application

It will definitely be rebuilt. Just need to find out what size jets I need and then as I rebuild it, I can check the jet size

just did some research and from what I can gather, I need size 48 jets since I am at sea level. Only 50 miles from the beach.

I have an old motorcraft carb thats shot its wad. May be able to reuse the jets from it. They are good if the right size. If not, they are cheap.
