  1. '70 Torino 351c fuel delivery issue, please help!

    Torino Pages
    Ok so I have a 1970 Torino 351 Cleveland and upgraded the top half from a stock 2bbl to 4bbl Eldlebrock 650 carb and intake manifold. Ever since then I've been creeping up on small issues. I have some bad compression in 2 valves so I just have her sitting, probably for way too long since I don't...

  3. 60' Falcon Not Getting Gas: HELP

    All Ford Techboard
    I recently became the proud owner of a 1960 Falcon with 144 ci straight 6. From what I was told, it has been sitting in a shed/barn since 1994. The engine wants to run but doesn't seem to be getting any gas. The shop replaced the gas tank, fuel lines, sending unit, and fuel pump, as well as a...
  4. Where can I find this clip?

    Maverick Pages
    Hi all, I finally got around to putting the fuel cell in my Maverick to replace the rusted leaking stock tank.

  5. Testing Fuel & Temp Gauges

    Galaxie Pages
    I would like to test the fuel and temp gauges from my '64 before reinstalling them in the dash cluster. I know that the constant voltage regulator provides a pulse that averages out to about 5.5 volts. My questions is, if I apply 5.5 volts directly to the studs on the back of each gauge (temp...
  6. Fuel leak near or in tank in a 67

    Fairlane Pages
    I fixed the gauge and topped the tank to full, everything seemed fine until I drove it into the driveway and shut it off. A few minutes later I smelled a horribly strong fuel smell. Went to the back of the car and noticed it was leaking as if it had just been washed and was draining all the...
  7. Fuel Gauge Sending Unit Resistance Is All Over

    Falcon Pages
    Ok, finally got around to doing the fuel gauge sending unit on my '64. Good thing I bought a new float, b/c the one in there was rusted in half and not attached to the sending unit arm. Had to fish it out with a coat hanger. Anyway... Before putting it back in, I figured I'd check the...
  8. Fuel Injection on Torino?

    All Ford Techboard
    I have a 69 Torino with a 351 Cleveland. I have been looking at these Holley and off brand fuel injection systems to replace my carburetor. I use the car as my daily driver so I'm sure you would understand why I want to switch. I am wondering if there is a system I could get off a used vehicle...
