I have a 92 b2200 extra cab base model. The carburetor is not right, someone else took it apart decided to clean it and couldn't get it back right. Broke some of the pieces and generally took it all out of adjustment.
I will buy a brand new one, not a problem. Which one do I get? I see several advertisement's for carburetors, they all have different numbers, they all have different looks and they all say they fit a b2200. If anyone could help, please get back quickly, I only have a week and a half to have this ready. I just need to know what model number everything will fit with, any modifications. I'm not a mechanic, a friend of mine is, sort of and is helping me. In other words I'm watching him.

Yes.....as Bobmo has said, do yourself a favor and replace the factory carb with a RedLine Weber 32/36 electric choke carb.
If you have emission testing in your area, then you may need to buy a rebuilt factory carb.
The trouble with the factory carb is that it is a "feedback" carb and it requires input from the many other sensors and devices throughout the engine bay......if a previous Owner has messed with and or broken any of those sensors/devices......then your task of replacing the carb with a factory carb, could be daunting! It only takes one sensor or device to throw the factory carb into "limp mode" or just cause the carb to not work properly.
I have tried many times to repair or rebuild the factory carbs......with about a 50% success rate......and I am a very competent "home" mechanic. I have even given up on a few (years ago now) and ordered a rebuilt factory carb from Carbs Unlimited, Inc......one ran good, the other not so good......
Now-a-days, I always buy a Weber when I have to rebuild a B-series engine that was still using a factory carb. The Weber (RedLine Weber's are the best) is cheaper, and totally adjustable/tunable......unlike the factory carb.
Thanks for the replies, I don't know what the emissions standards are, I live in Louisiana. I'd love to just delete everything and go with the Weber not sure if that's possible. I don't think the truck was messed with much. It's got 72,000 original miles, you know, old lady, Church, grocery store... I just know I have to have this thing running in a week and a half, I got some digging to do today. Thanks again for the help.

Does anyone know where to get the adapter plates from? Order the carb off Amazon,a 32/36 and it didn't come with adapter plates. Can't contact seller in any way.....
Got only a few days left to get this thing running and will overnight part if I can find it.
Any help would be great,does anybody have one that's used or anything? Contact me right away if possible...

Well, too late I bought a set of plates today, coming from Canada hope I didn't get burned, when I receive the parts and if everything is okay, I'll link the guys site in here.
Seems nice, very helpful. Can't remember the name of the place, I have to look at computer at work Monday.
I'm just stressing over getting this build done, I have right at a week to finish.

Redlineweber.com shows adapter plates available separately, you can contact them. However, I would return the Amazon one and get a genuine Redline Weber K675 kit. WEBER Carburetors distributed by Redline : Mazda
Thanks, I thought about going that way, but I literally have to have this vehicle going no later than a week from today. I overnighted the plates and I hope it don't take two three weeks to come in. Everywhere I looked, the shipping dates were November 29th to December 15th, all in that neighborhood...

Where are you located Mikey007? I'm in Gainesville FL, and I do have a few Mazda B-Truck parts......
I'm in Lousyanna , I ordered the plates and they will be here Monday. I think I have enough time to finish. I may be looking for some more parts in the future but the rest of this month and next month are hectic for me, first of the year I may really put some money into this little project. The little truck looks great, I don't care for red but that's what it was. The paint job compounded out perfect except for one area where the guy buffing it out wasn't as experienced as I thought and didn't realize he went through to the primer in about six little spots the size of a quarter. Other than that the little truck looked almost new.

Your truck looks GREAT by the way!!
I am really grateful for all the help,I don't manage stress very well. LoL
I'm doing this at the most inopportune time you could imagine... I'm not a mechanic,I like to dabble a little. I want HAVE to get this thing done by next week, no other options...
I should have bought a better kit and in the long run would have spent less money. But shipping times have put me in a bad bind. Thanks for the compliment, it really is a 💎 that I literally just happened upon. I've gotten myself in a unique situation, my other trucks in the shop and I have to have this thing running. I should have known better than to do this at this time of year.

You mean this? Weber #99007.675 ?
This one was widened a little to allow for an aftermarket cruise control cable.
View attachment 11032
No I was referring to the bracket that holds the cable from the top of the carb. I ordered it,I just freak out and start posting before I do research. (Normal for me)
I'm just stressed out with the time frame...
Again, I thank everyone who has put up with my shit and given me advice.
