    Can anyone advise me on putting a new 2bl for a 383, Chrysler #1530373, carb on my 318?
    My Carter model 2425 is done! Will it work?

    You would have to use an adapter or swap to a 360 2bbl manifold

      OK I think I got it covered. Mr gasket 2bbl adapter ordered. Is the 383 a larger bolt pattern on the intake? Thanks for the help btw.

      Also I have an open intake not the 2 hole kind. It's a large oval so no interference to the butterflies I'm guessing. I haven't seen the 383 carb yet. Guy has one for sale for $125 locally. My 0-2425 is falling apart, not worth the trouble. Can't afford to upgrade to 4bbl yet.

      I swapped a stock Holley carb and intake from a 75 360 2bbl van for about $100...... Works perfectly now, much better than the garbage Carter I had on it before!!!!
