    IIRC, the 2150 Holley was a common replacement unit on VV carb cars. Not sure what additional linkages might be necessary for the AOD however.

    I’d consider just rebuilding the original carb if that’s an option for you. Cheaper and equal performance, 2-bbl to 2-bbl

    There is no Holley with the rod style AOD TV linkage. You could use a cable and the brackets from a 1990-1991 Panther.

    Autolite 2150 with TV Rod linkage. A little hard to find. When i couldnt find one for sale I had to piece together linkages into my 2150 to make it work. I'll be selling mine soon if you can't find one.

    The linkage is wrong for the TV rod. The rod is an oddball setup. it is NOT a kickdown linkage, and the geometry has to be precise so the trans doesnt burn up. Rockauto has some rebuilt units still for sale I'll attach a picture with the part numbers

    * Based on the pictures, the first two will work, however the third will not.

    Are you looking to replace it to fix some problem, or just to change the brand of the carb?

    at this point id just like to change it because the car sat without much driving and I dont think the carb has ever been changed, Id like to rebuild it but at this point its quicker for me just to replace it. Originally i wanted a holley but ill just take what works best for this stock setup

    Finding a replacement is tricky since you need one with the AOD provision.
    Try your hand at rebuilding it if you have a couple hours. Grab a kit and two cans of good carb cleaner - I use https://www.amazon.com/Berkebile-Oil.../dp/B000CII6JM. My local Napa carries it and it’s cheaper there. Compressed air is handy as well, to blow things out. You could get a can if it if you don’t have an air compressor.
    They are pretty simple inside. Basically take it apart and clean what you can, then reassemble. Most kits include basic directions.

    From what I understand Holly Carb no longer makes the VV replacement but if you find one in a junkyard try and get the rebuild kit or look for the direct replacement from Ford.

    Would an Autoline c8152a carb work?

    something about that TV rod setup doesn't look quite right to me. Any chance for a view of the linkage side?

    I think the air filter housing is sitting on it and pushing the TV rod to the side... that or it’s bent.

    Here’s the one from my old 82. IIRC the rod flopped around more than I thought was normal.
