Ok guys heres goes my first question. have a 1948 Model M, carburator is a Marval-Schebler TSX 245. The bowl where the throttle jet goes in has been stripped out. so I cant tighten up the throttle into the bottom part of the core. Of course a new carb is over 300 bucks, I was windering if any other type carb will work, ie Ford, which is only 97 bucks on ebay.
