According to my experience growing up in a developing countries we use to swap engine etc and a carb does not make a big difference.This is a 1965 vehicle and would unlikely have any sensors or eletronic device connected to it..So I would suggest you look for a carb that will fit on it and providing the necessary fuel, say it comes off a 1.3 litre engine, this means you can't put it on a 2.5litre engine..The next step is to calibrate the carb according to the engine requirement which would need more expertise as I can't really explain the steps over a mail...So you will need to check the spark plug burning colour and smell etc..check for appropriate mixture of air and petrol. I CAN GUARANTTE YOU THAT THIS IS NOT AS SIMPLE AS YOU THINK..I hope this would help and I would suggest you look for some specialist in carb tuning..

Hi,

I have a 70 ford mustang originally a 2brl and now a 4 brl. No additional linkage was needed. You may have to re-route some vacuum lines. Since you have no tags on your carb you will have to take it to a carb shop. Mine was that way and I jacked around with Autozone, Napa, and O-riellys for2 weeks. Decided to take it to a carb shop and he just looked at it and knew exactly what it was.

oh by the way your carb does need re-built. My 70 did the same thing with ether or gas. Any carb shop can bench test it and tell you for sure for about $20
Thanks for contacting Fixya.

Why four barrels do not open 65 4100 carb


The choke linkage is not properly hooked up or adjusted. The throttle linkage is not adjusted properly or there isn't enough vacuum. The choke linkage has a tab that prevents the 4 barrels from opening when the choke is engaged. There is a tab on the throttle linkage from the front 2 barrels that will engage the secondaries when they rotate past a certain point. Vacuum opens the top plates on the secondaries.

1965 mustang starter fires but won't engage flywheel. it is a brand new starter


Doesn't matter. The forks inside the starter may be missing or broke off or bad spring in starter that pushes the gear out. Try new started. Starter may have to be shimmed to make contact with flywheel. Starter may be kicking out but not engaging flywheel.

Does a 1965 mustang have a suspension overload spring


Not exactly. The Mustang of that series had leaf springs and "overload" springs were usually a set with an extra leaf or two. Overload shocks were shock absorbers with an additional coil spring.
I don't think you could special order overload springs since the car was not designed to haul any extra weight like a truck or station wagon.

On my '65 w/200 cid, the return spring is indeed hooked to a flange on the exhaust. Seemed a bit wierd, but that's what I've seen on other 200cid Mustangs.

Need spark plug wiring diagram for 1965 ford


Try this. If the distributor is in the right way, the clips that hold the cap on should be just a hair off of 12 o'clock and 6 o'clock. #1 is positioned at 1 o'clock, which is at the firewall side of the distributor. The firing order is 1-5-4-2-6-3-7-8and is counterclockwise from #1. The passenger's side is cylinders 1-2-3-4, from the front of the car. The driver's side is 5-6-7-8 from the front. Hope this will help.
