  • How easy to put in a new carb on a Scamp?

    My eldest son has a 72 Scamp 225 1 barrel. Carb needs replacing. He wants to know how easy it is to replace such a carb and what one needs to be careful with (adjusting?) since he's asking my younger son to put it in for him. Thanks.

    I assume you are going 1bbl to 1bbl? If not, you need a 1bbl to 2 bbl adapter ( likely from langdon stovebolt or some such ). 4 botls, linkage and start with 3 turns out on the idle adjustment screw. Fine tune from there.

    Disconnect fuel line first, then linkages, then botls holding on the carb. Assemble in reverse order. Done.

      Years ago, I must have worked on hundreds of those carbs, and they are about the simplest carbs there are. But my question is, what's wrong with this carb that cannot be fixed? It should have a Holley 1 bbl model 1920, if I recall correctly; repair kits should be easy enough to find, and there is very little to disassembly, cleaning, and replacement.

      My one caution is......do NOT buy a "rebuilt" carburetor; either fix the original, or find a genuine NOS carb! Also, if buying a kit, be sure that it is a newer kit compatible with today's ethanol fuel!!

      Do you have a Factory Mopar repair manual.....if not, get one!!! :yeah that:

        This is the rebuild kit for Holley 1945. I know the page leads you to 1980 Dodge Aspen, but it's the same thing. NOT hard to rebuild a carb, really. Just clean the bench and lay it all out in order. 25 bucks and the carb is brand new.

          Nonstick, the carbs changed on the /6 in 1974/later, those later cars using the 1945 Holley 1 bbl.....NOT the same carb as the '72 1920 Holley, assuming that the carb on the '72 Scamp is the original.....??? The 1920 Holley carb is much simpler to work on, but the kits are entirely different!

            Yup, 4 more buks.

            My bad on that whole thing. Can't tell you why I had 1945 focused on other than the fact I've been doing research on my own today and that's what stuck in my head. "It's a 1bbl, SAME THING!" is likely what my brain did.


            Like my favorite line in Mr. Mom ( if you remember that movie). What am I using? Yeah...2X4, 2X5... whatever it takes.
