    Looking for advice and experience help on deciding what carb to buy. Finishing new sbf 9.5 deck 427, AFR 220, solid roller engine for my 63 Fairlane drag car and need a carb. Does anyone know about Willy's carbs out of Illinois?? Need a naturally aspirated carb, no power adders. I like...
  2. 1964 Fairlane Parts Selling

    Fairlane Pages
    I have a bunch of extra parts left over from our 64 Fairlane 500 Sports Coupe restoration. Some are in good shape, some not as good. The carburetor was rebuilt. I'd like someone to take the whole lot off my hands. We sold the car a couple years ago and the rest is just taking up space now.
  3. New Carb for a '63 170cu in.

    Falcon Pages
    Hello all, I have a 1963 Mercury Comet with a 170cu in engine, and I'm fairly certain the carburetor is dying. It has the stock Autolite 1100, and recently it has been stalling out the car, making strange whistling sounds when driving, and overall just not working well. It was "rebuilt" by a...
  4. vacuum lines for carburetor

    Falcon Pages
    I have a 65 ford falcon with a 200 CI straight 6 (not original engine) with a single barrell carb. The engine looks as it came out of a late 70's fairmont from looking at the casting numbers. Im having trouble figuring out where all the vacuum lines are supposed to go. The previous owner had...

    does anyone have pictures or a diagram of the vacuum lines on their carb? The previous owner had lines plugged and clipped all over the place and its not the original engine. Its a 200 straight 6 with a single barrell carb.

    I have a 1965 ford falcon with a 200 straight 6 single barrel carb. I need help on where all the vacuum lines should go. The previous owner did a half ass job and doesnt seem right. I got a new carb and it still runs very very rough. Does anyone have a schematic or anything that can help me...

  8. Carburetor Venturi Size Question

    Galaxie Pages
    I have a 63 Galaxie 500 4-door sedan with a 352, Cruise-O-Matic Auto. 2100 carb. The car is bone stock, and 99% original. The car runs well, though the power is a bit lacking from what I would expect out of a 352. I currently get about 10-12 MPG overall, (I tend to be heavy on the pedal). I...
  9. Crappy Idle...mystery vacuum leak or something else?

    All Ford Techboard
    As of yesterday, I had it running at a surge-y 800-1000rpm in park/neutral, which dropped to like 500-600 in gear. Best I could do was a bumpy 17 inHg of vacuum at idle. Seemed low on a (AFAIK) stock z-code 390. I assumed I had a vacuum leak somewhere, so I plugged all the ports, but I couldn't...
  10. What upgrades are worth it on a 260?

    Falcon Pages
    This is sort of a preliminary thread to get a feel for what might might actually be worth doing and what's probably not on the 260 in my '64 2-door granny roof. Currently, it's a stock (AFAIK) 260 w/2100 2-barrel. It's exhaling through a 2.something" dual exhaust backed up by a T-10 and a...
