    good find---from what i have heard, if the factory tag is missing on an autolite, the correct kit is nearly impossible to determine--that just ain't right--more lies and confusion---jeez--i can stay cornfused easy enuff with out help from the factory Shocked

    Whilst I was perusing ebay for 2100s, I discover that $50 is about the going price for those older cores. Shit, I must have 30 of them. I knew I was hoarding them for a reason.

    Sometimes they stamp the number(s) on the base plate.

    I know the carb I have does.

    yep--they put numbers everywhere--just how many different variations can they make anyway???---do monday carbs get a different part than friday carbs????--that seems to be what they make ya think----has become a source of frustration to me--not a very big one--i think the real issue is fossil fuel usage--without the carb or fi, that engine is just more scrap--so mass confusion is the answer to the question--every carb could make 100 mpg but that would not make anyone any money

    nice rant, if i do say so myself
