Default Carb swap

I'm sure theres plenty of posts about these but which of Mountain Mans carbs is best for a non-computer swap on an 84 305?

I am wondering why he decided not to use it. It has been worked on for sure and looks like a new choke pull off as well. A little high in my opinion. But if it is good it would work fine.

Another 3 to 9 years should finish it. In year 7 and still working on it - no end in sight.
