carburetor

just picked up recondition carburetor for my 1964 ford falcon, automatic with 170 engine. does not have the fuel bowl valve and link, is this something I need to track down? the core was turned in but I can get to it in the next several days. not sure how the "plunger"? comes out of the housing.
any help?

Re: carburetor

"plunger" is the vent valve rod

Re: carburetor

the carb I took off had it, the new one does not. recently read that someone had three carbs all three with plugs instead of the vent valve and they ran fine. going to give it a try. thanks for the response
