I have a 1973 Dodge D100 pick up. With a 3.7L slant 6. I’m wanting to replace the carb, does anyone know what carb would fit? I’m wanting to stay with a 1 barrel but i can’t find the one that’s on it currently anywhere. Says it’s made by Elkton.

My guess would be ether a Carter BBS, or ether a Holley 1920, or 1945.... I do not know specifically what was installed at that time on trucks.

A post in the parts wanted section may produce results. I will have a 1945 for sale late spring or early summer. But I need it until the carb swap happens.

The original carburetor on a 1973 Dodge trucks with Slant-6 engine was a Carter BBS; one of five different ones depending on manual/automatic transmission, Federal/California emissions, and light/heavy duty rating. There are others that will fit and work to varying degrees. "Remanufactured" carburetors are usually a bad gamble; they're notorious for being junk. First prize would be a new, correct carburetor, but expect to pay big money for such an item half a century after the truck was built—and it will take patience to find such an item. Close second preference is a skillfully rebuilt (not the same as "remanufactured") carburetor; check with these people, a longtime reputable outfit whose website says they have a Carter 4956—that is a 1970 Dodge BBS carburetor that will fit and work well on your '73 without any missing hookups or different connections, etc.

Too many people who were born on third base actually believe they've hit a triple.
