Re: Help Quick Fuel SL450SV & Y Block 292

What estout81 said is what I was thinking too. Also make sure the return spring on the primary throttle is hooked up at a good angle and enough tension.

Re: Miss on newly rebuilt 292

And something tells me, on Jan. 20, 2021, the influx of Chinese crap parts may increase.

Re: Miss on newly rebuilt 292

Maybe check to make sure you're getting a strong blue spark that can jump a fair distance.
Also, since your dwell changed a little when you increased the RPM, check to make sure there isn't play in...

Re: Crestliner steering Wheel Question

Good question. If I had to guess I would say if it looks like the Frazer "F", then probably just a coincidence and not intended. Also, the Crestliner was made in '50 and '51. Not in '49.

Re: Still wont start

If the car has been sitting for 20 years without being run, then a lot could be bad with the fuel, fuel lines, fuel pump and carburetor. Especially if it sat all that time with gas with ethanol in...

Re: How high is the hood on a 1956 T-bird? (should I be concerned?)

1955 T-Birds were original with 5 gaskets stacked and stapled together under the carb. '56 T-Birds came with just one gasket under the carb originally.

'57 carbs were a lot lower profile, except...

Re: Leaking Holley 94 carbs

Remove the bowl from the throttle body base. If it's wet from fuel in that pocket of the throttle body, either the power valve diaphragm is leaking, of the gasket seal on the power valve is leaking....

Re: How high is the hood on a 1956 T-bird? (should I be concerned?)

Also, you probably realize it, but the air cleaner stud on the carb is far from screwed in all the way. By about 1 1/2 ".

Re: oil bath conversion

Whether you're talking about a two barrel or a four barrel air cleaner makes a big difference too. Both carbs were available on '55 272's.

Re: 55 y block 272

All Ford, Mercury and T-Bird Y-Blocks were solid mushroom lifters, including trucks with a Y-Block. This includes 239, 256, 272, 292 and 312 engines.

Kube,

Was your carburetor done by Charlie ny, or did you restore it ? Were they that natural color originally ? I ask, because I've seen some later NOS Holley two barrel carbs from '55 and '56...

Re: 1901 teapot question

I agree. Teapot style carbs get a bad rap and a lot of old tales, mostly by people that don't even touch carburetors.

Re: Leaking Holley 94 carbs

Like Mart said, there shouldn't be any fuel in that area unless the power valve is leaking. It should be manifold vacuum in that chamber.
Are you sure your not mistaking it for fuel leaking through...

Re: 1901 teapot question

This carb and most others are originally calibrated for peak HP at a certain RPM. The only way to increase the power is to increase the air flow and recalibrate the main jet accordingly. It would be...

Re: Ford holley 94 carbs

Charlie, do you have a source for the original type brass throttle plate screws, or do you just have a stock pile of NOS ones ? Thanks.

Re: Carburetor Adjustment for 33 Ford

The '33 has a 221 cubic inch engine and so does the engine this Holley 94 came from. Does not need to be recalibrated.

Re: Carburetor Adjustment for 33 Ford

The external power valve you are referring to is actually a spark control valve for the vacuum signal to the distributor on '54 and later carbs.

Re: Carburetor Adjustment for 33 Ford

It looks like a Ford/Holley 94 type carb. The ones with the vacuum port for the distributor about halfway up the carb are for '49 to '53 239 8BA's or EAB's.
The extended throttle shaft with the...
