56 272 carb

I'm not sure what model this carb is. It came on my 272 in my 56 f100. It ran great but the base throttle plate has a crack where the shaft meets the linkage. I'd like to find another 3 stud throttle body and a gasket set to have this rebuilt or just find a rebuilt carb to replace this one.Any ideas on who has quality rebuilt carbs or shops that sell parts for this carb?
Thanks, Tom

I have one that will be finished with rebuilding soon and which will be for sale. How is your carb marked? ECG 5 , 1 or 1 1/16 ?

That is the venturi size. 1 1/16 inch. I'll double check mine.
