Re: Mallory sbc to 8BA 4 lobe cam issues

Charlie, that reminds me of a story. In high school, my Auto Mechanics teacher was an NHRA drag racer. He raced his '66 big block L78 Chevelle at first with the factory cast aluminum bell housing (4...

Re: Carb rebuild instructions

With a 92 cast on the driver's side of the bowl, that indicates a V8-60 carb as Gary In La stated in post #3. If you have an 85 HP engine, that carb is too small for full power. May work OK in the...

Re: Uncle Max Carb Quality

Just a note of interest too, is that the French Zenith has nothing to do with the old Zenith Carburetor Company that was in Detroit, MI. (Now in Abbingdon, VA)

Re: Stromberg carbs

I believe Stromberg 48's were used in '34 and '35, and 97's used from '36 thru '38. In '39 started the Holley/Ford 94 style carbs used through 1956.

Re: 1957 Fairlane 500 automatic

I thought Fordomatics used type F or possibly a Mercon substitute for it.

Re: The Hurst Mystery Shifter

I had a Hurst Mystery shifter for a 3 speed, and I remember it working OK. Nothing to brag about though. Sure was affordable on the plus side.

Re: What year is my engine is???

I think I stand corrected here. pretty sure 272 Y-Blocks were still offered in F-100's in '58 and '59, along with the 292.

Re: power valve

Also, Charlie ny prefers the power valves that have four small side holes instead of the two large square windows.

Re: What year is my engine is???

All Ford Y-Blocks, car and truck, after 1957 were 292's, except Mercury who used 312's thru 1960 with a 2 barrel carb.

Re: Holley 94 question

If the check weight isn't in there, then it's possible to siphon fuel out of the accelerator pump discharge nozzle (#9577), which would leave the channel dry, and possibly stumble/backfire after you...

Re: Holley 94 on 1953 Ford

That's great that you got it running good. They don't get better than Charlie for Holley 94 type carbs. Did Charlie tell you what the main issue was with your carb ??

Re: Them Ford engineers knew their stuff!

Yes, the engineers do actually test and think things out. In your case it may have just been the cap that caused the problem and not the shorter neck. Who knows.
