Re: Holley 4150 carburetor development history

The 4150 4-barrel came out in '57. I thought I read many years ago that one of the Edelbrock techs came up with the "modular" idea that also was applied to the 2 barrel 2300 series. The 4150 has...

Re: 53 239 Flathead Water Pump Mounts

The pictured engine has a '53 truck front mount and possibly a wide belt truck pulley. A better frontal picture would help clarify.

Re: Edmunds manifold, Twin Stromberg 97 carbs

Now that I clearly see the manifold, it has the overall design and carb placement like most regular 8BA duals. The picture of Tubman's is the odd one I described in my previous post.

Re: 8BA Style Timing Cover Queries

The cast iron narrow belt stepped pulley used on '50-'53 Ford/Merc cars measures about 6 1/16" in diameter and uses the lower pointer location. Trucks and '49 Ford/Merc cars used a sheet metal wide...

Re: clutchplate just fits the flywheel, or not ??

Re: Edmunds manifold, Twin Stromberg 97 carbs

The first regular dual I ran on my '51 was an Edmunds like the one pictured above. The can ran OK, but the carb placement and spacing just looked odd imo, and like no other regular 8BA I've ever...

Re: '40 Garnish screws

Thanks rockfla,
I'm not familiar with the description "type A tapping screw" so is that just a regular pointed sheet metal screw? I don't want to damage or enlarge the holes already in the body.

Re: '40 Garnish screws

Re: is it ok to run diluted antifreeze?

I run a summer mix 50/50 of glycol antifreeze to help keep the system clean and rust free, along with a 12-14 degree rise in the coolant boiling point, something that has not been addressed yet.

Re: 1949 Ford State Police car

The '57 regular production Lincoln/Merc 368" had 290 HP but Bill Stroppe's hand built 335 HP racing option could have been used by police.
