The original carb is a Carter YF.  Flat spots in acceleration may mean a
bad accelerator pump in the carb.  You can buy a rebuild kit that will have
a new accelerator pump.  You might also want to replace the float, while
you've got it apart.

Holley manufactured an aftermarket carburetor to replace a number of Carter
YF applications.  It was their tag number 8064AAA, which is a Model 1946
unit.  Holley has basic designs, known as models, and tag numbers
customized for individual applications.  These carburetors were apparently
a Weber design manufactured by Holley and sold in the '70s under the Holley
Economaster brand.  I have one on Pacer #1 and found one on a Pacer that I
bought to install on Pacer #2.  They seem to be good carburetors, but you
can't find them new anymore.
