Question about 1965 Ford Mustang
Mustang 1965 carburetor 4100 C5ZF-D. having difficultis getting the carburetor to operrate properly. New gas pump, new pressur valve, new floats and needels. Wath would be the right caburetor if I buy a new one. The engine is 289-v8
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..

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.
