    Default Scout carburator 196 C.I. (A better Carb?)

    I just swapped a 196 into a 1963' 80. I'm down to the brass tacks and was wondering if there is a good aftermarket or OEM carburator that is better for performance than the stock 1 bbl unit. The engine is pretty much stock with the exception of a bore and headers. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Not sure about performance gains or aftermarket but I found one over at BFIC

    email from vendor:

    1 barrel Holley carb for the 1978 scout ll with the 196 engine.

    Yes, we have an excellent quality remanufactured 1 barrel Holley carburetor for the 1978 scout ll. This carb is our Part #1266 , which is the stock original equipment model.

    Your cost for the #1266 carburetor is $195.00 , plus a refundable $60.00 core deposit and $16.00 shipping via UPS Ground. Total, before core refund, is $271.00.

    Some folks are using a progressive Weber, but I don't remember the size. Figure 196 cubes at less than 4000 rpms, it would be about 170 cfm, maybe a little more if somebody opened up the exhaust ports to take advantage of the header and increased the valve spring pressure to keep the valve train from floating.
