If you have the Bowl off now, post a photo of the gasket...

I was hoping to only pull the bowl. That is to say, I donít want to have to make any adjustments if possible.

Well, that's good, because the Metering Block can be a pain sometimes to break loose.
Is that the original carb for that truck ?

I believe it is but have no way to verify. Supposedly has 280k on it, but based on the seats and door panels, Iím inclined to say it has 180k.

Yeah, I could only find that tag # related to 85-86 7.5L/460ci, but those list are not 100%. No issue if it was, unless you are always running rich.
