[QUOTE=WHN;1592084]I really donít understand the fixation some of us have with this carburetor?

It was a cheap replacement back in the day.

This is like putting lipstick on a pig. Itís still a pig."

"A pig" seems a bit strong. "Cheap replacement" also strong, as the Tillotson XF was sold by Ford dealers as a service replacement. Could cheap been the reason Ford chose the Tillotson X design, or could it have been a more modern design winner? There were other choices. I would use the Tillotson X as a backup but prefer The B2 as an upgrade with a more period correct appearance. after all it is a Zenith. Good Luck: Fred A
