Re: holly 4 barrel carb linkage

If you get a bell crank from a '55 or '56 four barrel Y-Block V8, it will bolt on and you will have to figure out the correct length for the kick down rod. I've seen bell cranks on EBAY before. An...

Re: 1955 ford with 2 barrel ford carb

It doesn't matter 6 cyl. or 8 cyl. for a PCV valve donor. Do like Alaska Jim said. Match the cubic inches close with your engine. One for a Ford 289 V8 would be a good fit too.
If your carb has a...

Re: 1955 ford with 2 barrel ford carb

If it's the original type carb on your '55, then it's a Holley/Ford 2100 carb. It should be marked 1 1/16 on the back side about halfway up. That's the venturi size (1 1/16").
Guessing it flows...

Re: holly 4 barrel carb linkage

What I said above only applies if your original bell crank is for a 4 barrel engine.
Two barrel engines had the linkage on the back of the intake. Mummert's intake won't have anything to mount it...

Re: holly 4 barrel carb linkage

Why can't you just use the original throttle bell crank and put it on the Mummert intake ? That intake has a provision for the original bell crank to mount. Then see if the bell crank is higher or...

Re: Carbon build up inside intake bores?

Did you change camshafts recently ? If it has a cam with a lot of overlap (intake and exhaust valves opened at the same time), then it's possible to have reversion in the intake which is backwards...

Re: 55 272 Distributor

According to the chart that KULTULZ supplied, the 7RA vacuum canister is for a flathead V8 and 6 cylinders from '49 to '53, so don't think that will work.

Re: Who has one of these?

That style engine cart is the type they used at the Ford Engineering dynamometer lab in Dearborn. Makes total sense that the engine is a pre-production '32 prototype that never made it to production....

Re: 50 Car Differential Question

I agree. the question was what is the rear axle style or type called in his car, to help him get parts to repair. Sorry, I can't answer that question. I think it was the same type from '49 through...

Re: Shop Manual

KULTULZ,


Is the '56 Mercury 256 a small cam or large cam bearing engine ?


From the above you posted, I'm not sure if you meant small or large cam bearings.


Thanks, Sal

Re: weird hesitation

The AVS has no power valve to speak of. pretty sure it uses metering rods controlled by manifold vacuum.

Re: weird hesitation

If the ignition is in good shape and advancing properly, and if it's not an issue like accel pump shot from the carb, then I guess it's possible the air valve over the secondaries has the spring set...

Re: 6 volt to 12 Volt conversion

Steve, I converted a '52 Ford to 12 volts and just used the Ford factory voltage reducer (regulator). I'm pretty sure I gave you one with the car. About 2" long and 3/4" wide with two terminals.

Re: Carb Question

That's what I'm used to seeing. The end caps are small recessed caps. I guess it's possible someone plugged one with a ball on one side.

Re: Carb Question

Like Terry,OH said, it's probably just a different plug on one side. The nozzle holes are drilled on a downward angle before the end plugs. As long as it squirts out of both holes and not out the end...
