Even if you managed to repair the casting you still cannot get any hard parts for the carb. No jets, needle or seat or floats. The Holley is just not worth it in my opinion. They do not run any better than the Zenith at all.

I have the following engines for these two vehicles. I received one complete stuck engine in the yellow one, original engine. I also have the original engine for the second one, in pieces with several missing parts.

Then I also got this AM General take out powerpack, still banded to a pallet. The gage cluster attached to the speedometer cable showed around 33,000 miles. The carburetor has a production date stamp of 4 - 79. The radiator top tank has the following dates written in yellow grease pencil, 21 Feb 90 / 30 Sep 90. I am not sure if those were dates of vehicle maintenance or if they are connected to when it was surplused.

This engine luckily is not seized and I am certain it will run when I get a little time to try to run it on the pallet. It appears to have good compression but I haven't put a gage on it yet. I need to find my adapter for that size spark plug hole.

My son and I used foaming engine cleaner and another liquid degreaser along with solvent tank brushes to get the old oil and grease off of the engine. Were pleased how well it cleaned up. I plan to paint it because the paint is thin in several places

I noticed the transmission was made by the Japanese company, Howa. I thought this was interesting since this same company also makes rifles today, with the same logo.
