Re: 1956 Mercury Montclair base v8 engine?

I agree. Sad ending for a rare and nice car. Looks like possible original paint with very little surface rust. Especially sad for me, since a '55 Montclair 2 door hard top was my first car.

Re: Need 1963 Carburetor Part Number ID

Or end the mystery by opening the boxes and looking at the part numbers stamped on the carbs or tags with part numbers. I don't believe they will be any less valuable just because the boxes have been...

Re: Need 1963 Carburetor Part Number ID

Those are some odd part numbers. The prefix looks incomplete. Should be like C3AF.
The third digit (A) for example would identify the vehicle line. "A" would be full size passenger car. A Mustang...

Re: A better carburetor for my 47 G model six cylinder

"What is the Autolite carburetor model no.? :D"


The Autolite model 1100 one barrel carb was used on 200 and 240 sixes in the mid 60's.

Re: Ford Holley Carb 94 gaskets

I've never seen any kits for Holley 94's that had incorrect gaskets. Are you sure you don't have kit's for a Stromberg 97 or vise versa ?

Re: Two-Door Ford and Mercury Wagons

Must have used a '60 Ford Ranch Wagon to start with I would imagine, since I don't think Edsel made a 2 door wagon except for 1958 only. Looks nice !

Re: 1955 ford station wagon with a V8 302 Engine.

Welcome to the Ford Barn Michaeldig. If by T/A, you mean a Pontiac Firebird Trans Am, you probably won't get a lot of info here.

Re: Pulling my hair out over this misfire

Use a timing light to double check that the base timing is correct. Specs say about 5 degrees BTDC, but 10 degrees works better on Y-Blocks. then with the timing light, make sure the timing is...

I agree Martin. With ported vacuum, as soon as the hole is exposed, it's basically manifold vacuum to the vacuum advance. With the Loadomatic the same channel in the carb is shared by ported vacuum...

Re: Two-Door Ford and Mercury Wagons

Yes, very nice looking car. Made from a Ranch Wagon. The side stainless trim is from a '55 Fairlane. '56 side trim was wider, like the Park Lane in post #197.

Re: 1961 Fords - Where have they all gone?

The smaller of the two looks more like a 1990 model.

Re: 1955 ford station wagon with a V8 302 Engine.

Mando,


12 volt systems draw less amperage, so the switch should be fine. 6 volt systems generally have heavier wiring also. I had no problems years ago when I did the same to my '52 Ford.

Since the G3583 filter requires a return line back to the fuel tank< I think an electric pump mounted close to the fuel tank is the best option. The fuel filter can be anywhere...

My "American Encyclopedia of Cars" says the same thing.


15,186 Parklane wagons built in 1956.

Re: New 97 carb for my 51 F1..now pings

Yes, pinging (detonation) can cause piston damage if it's excessive or happens frequently. The more engine load, the worse it is when it happens. It's caused by excessive spark advance, lean fuel...

Re: The forgotten 1960 Fords
