I had the same carb on my truck. NO ONE around here had a rebuild kit for it (but they could sell me a rebuilt carb.) so I said screw ya'll and bought a new 4 bbl carb from jegs. I would get a new carb unless your wanting to keep it original. then I would buy a new carb and put the old one in a box...edit..... I had to have found a kit for it cause I can remember changing the gasket your talking about. can't remember the name either..vaccum accelerater pump/diaphragm or something.. so check all the parts stores in your area, if memory serves, I found it at an old parts store in a tiny town. had dust alll over the box. probably been sitting there for 20+ years.

That is called the accelerator pump and the diaphram is most likey ruptured.

The complete repair kit is FORD D4AZ 9A586-A (CT-499-D) and the accerator pump diaphram seperately is FORD C4AZ 9B559-A (CM-463).

If not still available from FORD, get back and will find another source.

Autozone has the kits or can get them. I just rebuilt one a couple of months ago for a 66 289 and the kit covered up thru 70 302, I beleive. And yes, that is most likely the accelerator pump blown, and I would do the whole rebuild cause of the blow out could be inside, particuarlly if the car has set long enough to evaporate all the fuel from the carb bowl.
