    I recently had my holley 600 carb stolen off my blazer, I found one for really cheap but it was off a ford bronco, but it looks exactly the same...and I don't really see 4 barrell carbs for specific motors, just wondering if it was a possibility that they used the same bolt pattern and whatnot..If so that would be awsome, if not, oh well. Thanks alot guys!

    I believe it will fit your truck, but some things are different. I dont believe Furd has the TV (kickdown) cable hook-up. You will have to rig something up. Not hard, just not right. Not sure on any major differences.

    I thought so, actually it prob has the hookups for the kickdown but just doesn't use them, or maybe not, I could prob get it. theres another for a chevy for way more, without a choke, which I don't think would be a good idea, I just wanna get one for cheap so I can get my motor running again, damn theives.

    Not sure what make my Edelbrock is for, but the PO had to jimmy up my kickdown cable because it doesn't have the attachment. I was gonna take one off a quadrajunk but they are riveted to the throttle linkages, so it leads me to believe my carb is for a GM.

    Carbs are universal... the linkage isn't... ford and chevy linkage is different, but you can usally get the adapters you need for the linkage at your local parts store...

    If it is the factory holley ford carb then it will not bolt up as the bolt pattern is different. If it has an aftermarket manifold then it will work but you will have to fab linkage stuff.
