Carburator

Post by Broose » Fri Oct 24, 2008 4:51 pm

I have a CJ2A that has the engine that I believe came out of a CJ3B because it has the valve cover. Someone cut the hood out to accommodate the carburator someone told me there is a lower profile carburator out there that will fit so it won't come through the hood? Anyone know what model of carb and where I can get one?

Thanks for the tip...here's what I found:

"Notes on the Holley Carburetor 1904, 1908, and 1909 models

*The 1904 was used on 1960 Falcons and can be recognized by its glass
float bowl (some may be zinc vs. glass). *All 1960 & 1961
Falcons had manual chokes.

*In 1961 the Falcon got the 1908 model

*The 1909 was used on 1962 144/170 falcons. (it is physically tiny
compared to the others)

CFM ratings are posted below:

Model 1904, 1960 144,170 are 130/150CFM respectively.

Model 1908, 1961 144,170 are 130/150CFM respectively

Model 1909, 1962 only, 144/170 are 125/150CFM respectively

*At the beginning of the 1963 production year Ford switched to the
Autolite 1100 and 1101 series.

I just finished putting a 1904 on my 3A and it works really well. There were some linkage issues and I still need to come up with a replacement for the air horn before I can put a regular hood on.

The air horn for a Carter YF carb as used on late F heads should work on the Holley carb.

That would be the thumb screw operated, "V" shaped clamped air horn.

Yep that's the one Cuz. It does fit nicely but is about an inch to tall. There was a guy on the 2A page that reworked one to fit but it took alot of time and effort. It has also been sugjested that the engine could be lowered but since I'm using some of the original mounts and plan to put a correct number "L" head back in some day I don't want to mess with it. So I think I'll look into fabbing something.

Were you unable to find the smaller 1909?

Is the 1909 that much smaller? I was under the impression they were roughly the same. But no, it took 3 1904s to get a good one. A simple fix from the 2A page would be to just trim the ridge inside the hood. I might look at patcing my hole if the fab thing doesn't work out but don't realy want to trim a good hood.

Cuz,

When you get a chance would you measure the height of the CJ horn for me? The one I'm using is off a wagon I think, just a long shot but........


Thanks, J.R.

I was told the Solex carb could be modified for a lower profile fit on a Ford GP, might work on a F134.......
