2 barrel is what I want , would there be a carby on the market so that I could keep my stock oil bath filter other than the standard one ??

I bought a 1 barrel Holley for a Ford Falcon at Rockauto, it was an early Falcon so not easy to find. It runs perfect! I looked at Rockauto for the Rochester 2 barrel and your only option is to send yours in for a rebuild. Short of that, perhaps you can find a carb shop and have a pro rebuild it locally? I know, they're hard to find anymore. Might find a car club and ask around. Also may want to look for other reasons why it runs poorly. Vacuum leaks can make an engine run poorly, could even be intake gaskets.
