62 Galaxie 500 352

I need carb info! Iím new to the classic/hot rod world, Iíve been digging for part numbers and what not but havenít had any luck. Itís a 2 barrel. Also Iím probably not going to rebuild the carb as itís in pretty rough shape and I want to get the car running good, so are there any edelbrock or Holley carbs that would be ďplug and playĒ or am I looking at a manifold swap too?

Re: 62 Galaxie 500 352

As per the 1962 Ford Galaxie Shop Manual, the 352 engine came with two different dual carbs, C2AE-9510-AE for manual shifting and C2AE-9510-AF for automatic.

I have the same engine on my '63, and I found a rebuild carb on eBay for around $250. Car runs like a dream.

Re: 62 Galaxie 500 352

If you have the "MONEY" I'd get one of the new injector units and step up to a 4bbl...
more power and better fuel economy.. I really don't understand why they still make and rebuild Carbs...
A new Holley, Edelbrock costs around $300 -500 new injector runs around $900

Re: 62 Galaxie 500 352

You can get a new Holley 2V carb, and I see 2V TBI injection units available now, too. You could swap to EFI without changing intake the manifold. A properly set up carb can run just as well as EFI, so just pick your price range.

I read Yadkin's posts about his adventure with a aftermarket EFI and it chills the spine. Looks to me like these things are a bait 'n switch where the presumed price is $900 but when all is said and done the final bill to get it running better than before is $2,000- $3,000.
I'm thinking thousands on this forum would love to have a $900 plug and play quick start and trouble free fuel system. But why are there no success stories posted here? Why?
Folks, if you have converted to EFI, or tried, let's hear your story!

Re: 62 Galaxie 500 352

Nothing is plug and play. The best part of this hobby is getting your hands dirty, learning, and tuning. All of these old cars needed periodic "tune ups", which, for us old guys who owned them when they were new or just used cars, is almost second nature.

I've had both good and bad luck with OE carbs on old Fords. Made of "pot metal", the alloy used depends on what was cheapest that day, and many are not compatible with modern alcohol blend fuels. If you have any white deposits in yours, then clean it up and put it on the shelf as a conversation piece. If you don't have white deposits though, rebuild it, as the Autolite 2100 is an excellent design and very easy to rebuild and tune.

Regarding the 4bbl swap, an engine is the sum of all its parts. A 4bbl carb requires a 4bbl intake, which won't do you any good without heads optimized for more flow. Also a camshaft, headers, larger diameter dual exhaust...

Are you in the AF? Active duty here, although the idea of retirement is getting some traction LOL

The stock carb is pretty darn good, especially for that size engine. Generally when they don't do well they need a cheap kit and then they do great. However, if you want an easy and effective swap, look for a Holley 500 cfm 2 barrel. They are pretty much plug and play with the exception of a little different fuel line and likely requiring an inline filter and manual choke, they go pretty easy. They are a nice addition if you find a good or new one, but don't consider it a requirement at your power level

Also, look close at a basic tune up, quality points and condenser, check firing order, set timing properly, adjust air/fuel. A stock 352 can run very nice with some very basic tuning if in decent shape.

If you are trying to hot rod it a little, and on a budget, here is the key to getting them running a bit better in order of effectiveness

1 - Make sure you are getting full throttle
2 - Recurve the distributor (it will not get you more peak power, generally, but absolutely helps around town) and consider an electronic trigger like Pertonix, etc
3 - Headers and duals (the issue though is old cylinder heads usually break the top bolts without heat) However, a set of headers and 2.5 inch pipes with good mufflers is one of the best things for a Ford FE and the foundation for everything else
4 - Shift kit in the tranny (doesn't make it faster, but a solid, firm shift, feels better and saves the tranny long-term) Transgo is likely the best for your application and I would likely ask an experienced shop to do it.
5 - Rear gears - really subjective but you need to think how you will drive it. If it is around town, in the hills, 75 and under, with the above modifications a 3.50-3.70 gear will make a huge difference if you have a 3.00 in there now. In fact, it is mathematical, if you have a 3.00 gear, a 3.50 gives you 17% more torque multiplication, but you lose top end speed, so think on it. This could move up before headers, but realize the stock exhaust, particularly the manifolds are horrible, so if someone wants to go in stages, I generally do exhaust and tranny first.
6 - Open element air filter - again ot a big power adder, but with the quick advance, steeper gears, hard shifting tranny, nice exhaust, you get the grown of the air filter and it makes it more fun

After that, 4 barrel, cam, heads, more cubes, it's only limited by budget and creativity.

It's been 30 years since I bolted one of those on my 360 in my red F100 Is it because the cathedral float bowl hits if I remember right? Good catch

Yes, I’m guard now. So update, I found a reman Autolite carb for it and is “supposed” to be the right one, but it has no dashpot or trans kickdown like the one that came on the car when I bought it, so my next question is, is it supposed to have it? I mean there was no linkage connected to the kickdown when I bought it. Have no clue if it should.

Re: 62 Galaxie 500 352

dashpot can be transfered from old carb. kick down link should be part of the bellcrank assy near the firewall

There is a rod going down to the trans from the bell crank but there is no linkage for a kick down for a carburetor I’ll send pictures. First is the new carb, second is the one I pulled off it.

Re: 62 Galaxie 500 352

the link going to the trans is the kick down. the carb you had was from a newer car.

See, now that makes sense, so just swap the dashpot over then?

Re: 62 Galaxie 500 352

I wouldn't bother with the dashpot, unless you adjust it out of the way and keep it "for looks". They always seem to hang up and mess up the idle speed.
