Hmm, I have 2 "D" brains here. Price is right if needed. I gave Mark Furhman 
the "A" unit he is running in his car right now. There are 3 basic brains. 
"B" unit which replaced the "A".  The "D" which replaced the "C", and the "E".

 and of course the year to year differences really

MY '71 FB has been sitting for over a month without being started. I bet I 
can go out there right now , and without even gettting in the car, hit the 
starter, and the car will start. My carbed '66 FB won't do that. With it, I 
have to set the chokes, and pump it a couple times to get it started when it 
has been sitting for a while.
