Re: Can you id this ford.

At this point I see arguments for a 2100 and a 4100. Probably doesn't matter at this point as parts can be changed over all those years.

Re: Can you id this ford.

Pretty sure, since I can see one of the rear screws that hold the bowl cover down on the secondary side.

Re: Can you id this ford.

If you look closely over the top of the choke plate, you can see one of the screws that holds down the rear of the bowl cover for the rear barrels, plus part of the boss for the vacuum passage to the...

Re: Can you id this ford.

Good info Craig. This engine has a 4100 4 barrel. That's why I'm leaning towards a 390. Chances are the carb and intake have been chaged after all theses years. I don't know if a 390 was ever offered...

Re: Can you id this ford.

Craig,
Good catch on the manual choke. At first look I thought the choke assembly was just missing. Also thought V8 trucks had auto chokes in '66 ? Could be wrong.

Re: Can you id this ford.

If the alternator and carb/intake are original...., I believe alternators started in 64 1/2 or '65. The carb appears to be a four barrel 4100 and the style accel pump cover that was used after '64....

Re: SAN FERNADO - BURBANK 1940s

Very nice video ! Must have been the very late 40's. I saw at least one '49 Ford and Chevy.

Re: Attention all fuel systems experts

I used to work at the old Zenith carburetor in Detroit in the 70's and early 80's. It was spun off into Facet Enterprises in '75. I was in the engineering lab, and I installed a Facet electric pump...

Re: Two-Door Ford and Mercury Wagons

The Australian '54 Ford also still had the king pin front spindles, and the same wheelbase as the '53, that was about 1/2" or 1" different than the US Fords. I don't remember if it was longer or...

Re: 1963 1/2 Ford Galaxie Identification

Also, there was never a performance version of the 260 V8. Even in the the Falcon Sprints and Sunbeam Tiger there was only one 260 available with a 2 barrel carb.

Re: 1963 1/2 Ford Galaxie Identification

I've even heard some early 63's were available with the 260 V8, but kind of doubt that one.

Re: 1963 1/2 Ford Galaxie Identification

According to my American Car Encyclopedia, the body code on the data plate for the early two door hardtop (square roof) is 65A. The Code for the 63 1/2 fastback is 63B. I don't know what date they...

Re: 1951 Ford decoded?

I'm not sure where you are reading these numbers from, but on the data plate a 72C is a business coupe, and a 72 is a club coupe. There was no 72B that I'm aware of. I don't know what the other...

Re: Best place and best price for new 94 carb

No apology needed. That was my poor attempt at comedy. I do all domestic carbs, and have been doing mainly '49 thru '57 2 and 4 barrel Holley teapot carbs for the last 15 years. Also all 50's Ford...

Re: Correct Carb for my 1940 Ford

I think we discussed this before, but I've seen some 94 carbs from that era that were dichromted the pale greenish color. Were they also correct, or were they service carbs made later in the 50's ?
