    OK, I know this is a 2BBL BBD, but is it a 161 model? I googled images for mine, and they look identical to the one in the photo. Unfortunately, someone removed the tag before I bought the car that it's on. This is a pic of the actual one I'm asking about.

    "Looks" like the carb that was on my 67 318 and 68 273, if that's any help.
    Are there numbers stamped on the base plate? maybe if there are those would identify it.

    This one is for my '66 Barracuda with the 273 engine. The number at the base is 1-1435 there is another number on the side of the float bowl that reads 0-1781 and another number at the back left corner of the carb which reads 6-1758

    I have another question. Is the pump plunger supposed to move freely? Dumb question, I know, but it doesn't move, and if it's supposed to, can I free it up with WD40?

    That looks identical to my carb on my 67 273 dart.
    There are 2 Carter 2 bbls they have different sized openings 1.25 and 1.5 (IIRC) look in the FSM it has all the info on the carb.
