Depending on your engine just old, you will be looking at something around a 600 to a 650. Anything smaller and you will probably run into lean fuel burn problems. The 600's, are a perfect size car, and you will get good fuel economy too. Good luck in a trade, i'm sure someone may have a carb.

oh, if need be, try listing it in the barter section on craigslist in your local area, never know. Someone may be wanting to upgrade to a larger carb.
