Yo vivo en la ciudad de mexico, si tienes el topaz americano es el carburador holley 6149, pero si tienes el topaz mexicano, los de ford nos hicieron el favor (y digo hicieron porque tengo uno con el mismo problema) de poner un carburador de dos gargantas holley 5200, que hasta donde he averiguado es exclusivo para el mercado mexicano. Es dificil conseguir ese carburador aun reconstruido y caro, a veces lo he visto en refaccionaria california. Otra opcion son los talleres de carburadores que estan sobre Dr. Vertiz en la doctores, te recomiendo carbuservicio, esta casi a la entrada (no camines por ahi la colonia es medio peligrosa, ve directo al taller) lo que yo acabe haciendo es comprando otra version de Holley 5200 y voy a intentar adaptarlo

How do you set up throttle linkage on a Holley model 4011

There might be a Holley carburetor repair and operation manual at a public library near you. After all, once you get the linkage set up, a manual could help you tune it right in for best performance.

Try google search of the Holley 4011. You might find pics of one sitting on the engine, all hooked up.

Holley carburetor 750 free tune ,rebuild and diagram manual jet sizeing and explanation of how to select the right jets

What you need can't be described here.It would take hours to type. You need a manual. Your best bet would be to check with Haynes. Chilton or Motor have a good rebuild section in their yearly manuals and it covers Holleys with the specs for your vehicle. You should be able to find one relatively cheap on e-bay or kijiji. There was a company called Pederson Publishing that put out a book on Holley's a few years ago but I don't know if they are still around. I suspect you could get good info from Holley too but none of it will be free. Hope this helps.

Want to tune carburator rochesterquadrajet how too?

Replace it with a Holley Carburetor. The Quadrajet is a nightmare to work on and a real pain to adjust. A shop with a flow station can do the job. If you have a rebuild kit you might be able to do it because you would be setting back to core setting since your replacing guides and orifices.

Should I rebuild my Ford Bronco 351 Windsor Holly 4 bbl carb or replace it with an Edelbrock carb?

In all my experience, if you know how to correctly tune a edelbrock then go with that, but, holley has outstanding carbs that can muster up to an output of 1,200hp. it would be much cheaper to et a rebuild kit from say, o'reillys, 20-45 dollars depending on which one you have.
I have a 1985 Bronco 351w 4x4, i just rebuilt my holley and she runs smooth
