Re: Ford/Holley 94 tear down and reassembly!

Very nice Mart ! Success is all about attention to details, and not just cleaning and puting back together again.

Re: 390 camshaft

When I worked at Ford Powertrain engineering in the 80's and 90's, Eonic was a supplier for camshafts during development. Not sure about actual production.

Re: How do you identify ethonol resistant carb kits?

I believe all carb kits made these days are ethanol resistent. I haven't run into any that weren't. Just the old NOS kits that you need to beware of.

Re: 97 carb hesitation

Holley 94's and Stromberg 97's were never used in gravity flow set ups. and even gravity flow is more than 0 PSI. (1/2 PSI per foot of head pressure).

Re: Acceleration

Another indication of lack of ignition advance would be hotter than normal exhaust temps. Extra hot exhaust manifolds. Possibly hotter coolant temp too.

Re: Teapot carburetor question

You would be better off with two Rochester 2GC carbs from the 50's, 60's or early 70's.

Re: Teapot carburetor question

These carbs weren't always stamped on the base with the actual part number.

It is a teapot style carb like the '52-'53 Merc's and '52 Lincolns. It just has the big lid on it to make a rear air...

Yes, the wagons had a different fuel tank than the sedans, hardtops and convertibles. I can't think of a reason a RHD wagon would have a different tank than the LHD wagons.

Re: Adding turbo to classic FE block

I thought 361's were available in '58 Edsels only. In '59 it was substituted with the 292. Ford trucks called it a 360. Not sure which years trucks had it.
