Default Holley Carb

Looks like my distributor cap has shot craps. Not getting any spark on my plugs at all. Thank god its not the fuel pump. Anyway, I removed my air filter box and noticed a Holley brand carb. Did Dodge put these on as o.e. or has the previous owner done some engine work?

I'm sure it's a Holley made throttle body... they were oem on many 2nd gen trucks.

Got a pic?

Agreed. For the record, there hasn't been an OEM carb of any make on a 360 since the late 80's, and even then they weren't Holleys. Holley was, however the OEM for throttle body injectors in the pre-Magnum years. I have two Magnum throttle bodies, a '93 and a 2000, and neither states Holley anywhere that I can see. Still, they probably were the OEM for the Magnum throttle bodies. If you actually have a carb, then yeah, it's been modded. A pic really would help.

After googling "holley throttle body" i found this picture, and this is what i have just not as pretty. this is from a durango, but that is where mine is stamped "holley" im not much of a mechanic, just a parts changer on my own, i tend to get my terms mixed up. thanks though for the insight...learned something new!

That's one nice clean looking throttle body. I do have a question for all of you though. Is the throttle body on a '97 Dakota 5.2 the same as the throttle body on a '97 Ram 1500 5.9? I'm looking to buy a spare throttle body and modify and clean it up hen install it in my Ram. I found one, but just want to verify fitment before I buy it.
