    {CARB-SWAP}2 BBL carb help!

    Hey everybody! I just bought a 2BBL motorcraft 2150 carb from a wrecking yard, and would like some info on it. I have only worked on Stromburg carbs, so this is new shit to me.

    The thing next to the acc. pump? I know it is called a Temperature Compensation pump, but does it hook to vacuum, or what?

    The doohicky next to that mixture screw is the enrichement valve I assume? Does it hook to a vaccum source?

    This large hole in teh throttle body, what is it for? there is nothing broken off inside it, but I know if I leave it open, it will suck vacuum. Is if for an EGR system?

    This carb BTW came from a 1984 F150 with AOD. I still need to rebuild it and clean it up, but it wasn't a bad price for $120.

    Thanks for any help you can provide guys!

    the large hole in the base is for the pcv valve line
    the second thing might be the fitting for the heat riser of the choke
    the first thing? it will run without it lol
    they are going to want the numbers off of the tag attached to the carb body
