November 4, 2003I have got a 1983 F-250 heavy duty (8800 lb GVWR) with a 300. The vehicle is non emission controlled. The carb is a 1bbl carter non-feedback with hot air only automatic choke. I'd like to rebuild the carb but the parts house say I need the identification number.The thing is I can't seem to find the identification number. The tag that they say the number is on is missing. The only 2 numbers I found is on the base (705ISA) and on the top of the float bowl (6-222. Are any of these numbers the identification number?

November 4, 2003Somehow the darn happy face is covering up my carb number. The number is 6-2228.
November 4, 2003Ouch, I think the tag is the only way to EXACTLY ID the carb, I'll check my carb book at home though and see what it says with those numbers you have.
November 4, 2003The parts store I deal with (Canadian Tire) gave me five carb numbers that go on that model year truck. D5TE-AGB, E0TE-AMA, E0TE-AMB, E3TE-ASA and E3TE-AYA.
November 10, 2003I had the same issue with my Carter non-feedback carb on the '85 straight-six. Once completely pulled off the carbeurator, I pulled it apart and cleaned all of the surfaces. After cleaning, I discovered several numbers that had not been visible previously. Try cleaning the thing, you should find the numbers. Then stick a tag on it after you finish the rebuilt so that either you or the next owner know which model you've got.
