What carb is best for my 83 Eagle 4.2 L six?
« on: September 30, 2020, 04:09:42 PM »
My 83 white Eagle Wagon needs a new carb. The Bad carb is a Ford. Wouldn’t I be better off putting a new Oem Carter C6214 back on it. All I’m finding is Carter Type. Is Carter out of business. If so what is a quality Carb to get?
