The OEM carb on this model was Motorcraft, and you can get the rebuild kit from Ford or you can look up the model number either in Chilton's manual for that car, or maybe find another (kinda hard nowadays) carb in a junkyard and maybe it still has the tag. You can also research the specs for that motor on a web page of Ford or 2nd party auto parts dealers. I'd bet most mechanics over 40 years old could start you off in the right direction, too.

1985 dodge pick up that cranks but won't start


Need to have the basics: air, fuel, fire. Does carb shoot gas down carb barrel when you pump the throttle? Do you have a good spark when turning over? Air you should have. Pull a spark plug or two and see if they're wet. Leave one out, connected to plug wire, and have base well grounded, crank it and see if you've a good spark (no gas fumes around when you do this!). Make sure plug wires are going to the right plugs.

Dodge slant 6


I'm not sure, it's been a while but I think it's a 2 barrel. Take the breather off and look down inside the carb. There will be 1 or 2 "holes" going down, these are the barrels.
Putting a larger carb on it will require an adapter plate. I do recall back in the 80's seeing an adapter plate for a 4 barrel for a slant 6. Probably your best bet would be to get in touch with a company like "Summit Racing" and see what they have available.

How many RPMs should a V8 Chevy with a 4 barrel Rochester carb be turning?


I would expect about 4500 to 5000 RPM with stock engine and valve springs/lifters in good shape. An electronic ignition may extend this somewhat. Dual exhaust with low back pressure mufflers will push it a little more yet. This is assuming that the engine is well tuned including the 4-barrel. Hope this helps!

Changed 4 barrell carb to a 2 barrell it wont hold the idle and dies out


that 2 barrell needs some more work done to it and what was wrong with the 4 barrell the 2 main jets in a 4 barrell are smaller than a 2 barrell as long as you dont engage the 4 barrells your using less gas anyways.
