Welcome to the forum Preston.
Until you have enough posts to be able to advertise your parts, you can use the classifieds section for non members. The section is using a different software so you will have to create a new account. ;)

 I am Jaggerdog, the newbee of the day.  I have a 1968 GT convertable with a 302 4-bbl and 4-spd.

I'm learning the vageries of the Autolite 4300 and would appreciate any suggestions about optimizing or replacing this carb.  I've just installed factory (cast) high performance exhaust manifolds, which do not have a fitting for the sending tube for the carb choke heater.  the mornings here are now 32 degrees F or lower, and I can't get the car off fast idle.

Any suggestions?

Motorcraft screwed up when they replaced the 4100 with the 4300.  Search far a wide for a 4100.

I'm leaning in the direction of replacing the 4300, but I'd like to ensure that I replace with the right unit.  Is there a newer Holley or Edelbrock (or some other 4-bbl) that will best serve my needs
1.  reliability
2. ease of maintenance
3. authentic to the period (4-bbl carb is sufficient)

fuel economy is not a big issue, nor is emissions
