Re: Throttle Linkage '57 E-code Passenger Car

Yes, 2x4's with the Fordomatic used a dashpot on one carb. That's the only reason front and rear carbs have different part numbers. Carbs are otherwise identical.
Unless your after 100% correct, the...

Re: stromberg 48 ???????

They are not in there very tight. I have used a fine tipped easy out without any damage done.

Re: Charlie N.Y. Band for life from Ford Barn

It was on a true course with Charlie. Don't know what you're talking about.
Others have been banned, but only for a short period. It all sounds like BS to me.

Re: Charlie N.Y. Band for life from Ford Barn

Doesn't make any sense. I've seen people get banned for a political comment before, but only for maybe a week. Maybe told Ryan something hurtful, although I can't imagine Charlie doing that to...

Re: stromberg 48 ???????

The smaller holes on the side are there to allow air from the main air bleed to mix with the fuel to help vaporize the it.

Re: Show stopper

It sounds like you just need to adjust the idle speed and mixture screws when it's warmed up.
If that doesn't cure it, maybe a vacuum leak ?

Re: Silver Cad paint

I don't turn the can upside down and clear the line and nozzle, since I feel it wastes some paint. I just remove the nozzle and spray carb/choke cleaner through it. Never had a problem.

Re: 57 Fairlane 500, automatic transmission

Your leakiing sieve could be possibly fixed with a minor in car repair.
Clean it off and find the source of the leak.

Re: Problems with Ford museum? I certainly hope not

Sounds like museum owners are basicly CB's.
If they charge admission, they should be able to spend a dime.
After all, the engine is being donated.

Re: Throttle Linkage '57 E-code Passenger Car

I agree, the linkage looks a little hokey. Someone hooked a return spring to front carb secondary throttle lever, and by the position of the secondary lever on the rear carb, it appears to be opened...

Re: Throttle Linkage '57 E-code Passenger Car

As paul2748 said, a good place to start is to diaconnect the link between the carbs incase it's holding one throttle open.
You can see in the picture you posted where a bellcrank is bolted to the...

Re: Throttle Linkage '57 E-code Passenger Car

I assume yours is a manual trans, if it resembles the picture KULTULZ posted.
I know the auto trans pass car E code used a bellcrank on the manifold too.

Don't know what to say about your high...

The ones Mike's Carburetor has are also for a 5/16" line and not 1/4".

Re: Air Filter Element for '57 E-code Passenger Car

The picture in the EBAY auction looks like a single 4 barrel air filter element to me anyway. Too tall and not a large enough dia. Unless it's a generic picture.

Re: Throttle Linkage '57 E-code Passenger Car

Are you sure the chokes are 100% open and you're not still on the fast idle cam on the other side of the carbs ? There is a seperate speed screw there for cold fast idle adjustment.

Re: Air Filter Element for '57 E-code Passenger Car

You can try Felix Natoli on EBAY. His ID is natolibird. He has quite a few things and used to make even the bellcranks.
About ten years ago, I bought an E code pass car filter element from him. He...

Re: Need Fast Idle Cam for a Holley Teapot

If you have any '55 Ford Teapot carbs that have useable parts, I would be interested in making you an offer. Or even older, like '54 Merc/Lincoln.

Thanks, Sal

The '61 looks like an AC car, but the condenser is missing. Radiator too.

Re: 60HP Project engine photos

The carb given to Lawson had coloring originally. Since there was no date coding I could see, I assumed it was a dealer service carb manufactured after 1939. Somewhere along the line they dichromated...

The fast idle cam needed would be on the following Holley LIST numbers:
1161,1162,1163, 1164, 1094, 1268, 1434 and 1437.
Most common are 1161 and 1162
