It also looks like your missing the fulcrum and attaching screw for the choke plate as well as the rod, most Ford 2BL carbs used the same system, just the choke caps were changed, so if the other carb has those parts you can easily swap them, I say easy but if you don't have any carb experience it would be somewhat of a challenge but if your careful and watch the placement of all the components and gaskets I'm sure you can fix this.

So that carb use's heat from the manifold to warm up the choke heater, I would block off the vacuum port from the choke housing and the fresh air tube on the air horn plate, and then put the electric choke cap on that carb and adjust it to specs, electrics work a lot better than just an vacuum heated one.

If someone has $7000 I'll let it go
