    Look very closely at the top of the carb with the air cleaner off. There is a 3 digit number on the carb which the auto parts people need. I used to own another Power Ram 50 I used to plow driveways. I got a rebuilt carb from NAPA a number of years ago. The carb number for my 1988 Power Ram 50 2.6 w/ auto trans was 430. That is the type of number they need. I will warn you the number was very hard to see and if someone sprayed the carb body w/ carb cleaner it might be gone. At the time, NAPA would only send back the same carb number you gave as a core because good carbs are in short supply. I was advised by the NAPA dealer this was due to coolant that circulates thru the carb body and corrodes it. I wish I could give you better advice on where on the carb to look but I don't have the truck anymore, underside so rusted from road salt in Northeast, I donated to the church to plow the parking lot.

    finally found a kit from orielys auto parts, and the truck is back up and running after 16 years of sitting.. still got some work to do tho, i think the piston rings are shot (smokes a lot) but i got a heck of a deal on it.. so i will probably rebuild the motor. truck is to clean to part out. when i figure out how to post pics i will put some up.

    It should seal back up. Just drive her around and keep the oil full. If not, well no gain no loss. You are plaining on a rebuild any how. But they normally come back with some time.
    As for posting pictures. Look in the Site News and Support Section. There are 2 posts in there on just what you need to do to make it easer.

    add a quart of rislone into the oil at the next change in place of a quart - its a superdetergent to clean out carbon and sludge buildup slowly, unlike 5 min motor flush that removes all the crud at once.
