There really isn't a direct replacement because of the electronics involved. This carb is called a 'feedback' carb because it has electronics that send signals to the ignition computer. There are very few mechanics that even know what a carburetor is anymore so that makes it even tougher. My suggestion to you is look online for a rebuilder that gives a good guarantee. A new one may not even be available.

Yes, the floats may be causing the fuel level in the carb. to be too high. The black plugs indicate running too rich. Clean the plugs and check the fuel level.

1987 dodge ramcharger is leaking fuel from carburetor, is there a kit to fix the carburetor?


Yes, check at local auto parts store, but they may have to order it, seeing how everything is pretty well fuel injected now. Look for a tag attached, or at least some numbers, make of carb, such as holley or carter, 2 barrel or 4 barrel etc that they can use for reference.
