It would be a nice thing to document the installation with pics before and after.

The 20A is date code.
1962
The second position is a letter from A to M for the month
The A is the first week of that month

The C2DE R tag is an engineering number
C2DE R is for a 1962 Ford Falcon or Fairlane with 170. The part number is C2DZ 9510 B
It is a Holley design

Does that help?

In my opinion ..... ??
I typically buy several used ones and make a very good one that I rebuild.or custom make to my needs.
Sell what ever is left over,

I am kind of weird about stuff like that. I will find an OE that has the correct tag and maybe build date.
I bought 5 carbs for my 70 Mark III. The last one was a rebuilt from Autozone because it was so difficult to find exactly what I wanted. And they had one,
That particular one was actually the best example and I was kind of blown away about that.

New one .... does not exist. Those carbs have not been made for decades. I have had bad experiences everywhere, So ....

OReilly's has a Tomco reman. Manual choke which I would think is accurate. Has a warranty and it is possible that it might come in handy.
What does your "guy" say?

The difference may be in auto choke and manual choke. Plus the bigger six (223 CID) had a Holly 1BBL too

From the Ford six website

Holley 1904/1908/1909
This carb was noted for it's trouble free design and was considered to be an excellent carb for the early 60's, capable of providing good fuel economy and reliable service. The 1904 was introduced in '52, but wasn't used on our sixes until early 1960, on Falcons and Comets. Then in late '60 and '61 both models came with the 1908. In 1962 the newly designed 1909 was used on Falcon and Comets, as well as Fairlanes. The Falcon carbs came with a manual choke, while the Comets and Fairlanes came with an automatic choke. All three carbs, normally installed on 215/223ci engines, had a slightly smaller bore and venturi for use on the 144/170ci engines. Flow rates were as follows, 130/150/170cfm for the 1904, 135/150cfm for the 1908, and 125/150cfm for the 1909.

Pretty sure for 62 Falcon the correct carb will have less CFM and a manual choke

If you suspect the points, (or the primary ignituion system) it is more likley the condenser.
There a tester that few have.
Just easier to replace the condenser and test drive.
