Gmc 6.0 366 carburetor needed

Trying to get my skoolie going. First obstacle is getting it smoged and registered. Right now Im in big need for a Holly 4150EG carburetor. Does not need to be in working condition.

Mine is just rusted from a birds nest. And I just need a parts carb cheap so I can piece mine back to working condition.

If anyone knows where one is available. I dont have much money but I can get some up for it.

Thank you so much!!!!!

If you go for a rebuilt ready to go carb from the big box stores? Stay away from anything TOMCO carb.
Got a good bus graveyard in Washington NC if you can pass the grumpy old mans test to walk around his backyard.
Wanting to go back there soon but not within this month but If still needed I will let you now what I find when I go.
I don't know that Holley was the original carb on that motor but was a good upgrade.
Your profile says your bus is an 1898 model? That would trump anyone here

I'll check and see what holley # my carb is on Sunday. I am converting to fuel injection and do not need it. It was sitting for a number of years so needs a good cleanup and new gaskets to be sure. It is off a 392 International. This is a 4 barrel carb.

Do you just need to get it home on the original carb?
I am in the middle of changing my 77 truck over to injection and it will cost more than your bus without a full camper build.

I will look but at a minimum will want a new base gasket.
Haven't looked up the 4324.
But if the bus is in your possession why not just go with the throttle body you need for fuel injection?
Nothing I find in graveyards have upgrades. They are as is from the bus barn.
With stuff missing of course.
But there are ways to get past that.
For me.
My ford B700 bus upgrade some from F700 trucks usually dump trucks if I want any parts.
Most manufacturers used the same frame and chassis for several models of vehicles of the same size and carrying capacity or a little higher.
In this day and age a GM 3500 KODIAK is still a GM 3500 with a different body on it.
The motors the same the chassis is the same and so on.
Millions of donors out there you just have to find it.
But when you do it's the little stuff like baseplate gaskets that add up and cost time if you aren't prepared.
A donor carb might be a quick fix but will leave you hanging if not right then.
But in a bus on the side of a road or in a parking lot you have the space to rebuild it if you have the kit and tools.
Good luk
