1964 1/2 - 1966 / Re: SJ End cap nuts
« Last post by J_Speegle on Today at 10:30:11 PM »
The cap was installed on the car, but the nut only went as far as the yellow arrow. This allowed the cap to be almost a 1/4" away from the car body.
The car was painted.
The nut, washer and stud from the yellow arrow to the green arrow was painted as well.
The paint dried and someone then tightened the nut, leaving the unpainted area between the yellow and blue arrow.


Yes fully understand that these clues are what brought us to the conclusion of how 66 San Jose cars were built and the way its been described on the site since it was first mentioned.  But your illustration sure helped a few more understand this detail.

 Thanks Jim. The secondary boosters are correct, I believe they are BA.  I would have to pull out the spec sheet that I used but Iím pretty sure that the fluid levels are adjusted properly. Iím hoping that the measurements for my spec sheet would match what you found.  I have had the top off before, when doing some minor work, and saw that the gas levels were well below the top of the carburetor.
  When the car is running it looks like something is leaking fuel through the Venturiís and every so many seconds I do see what appears to be a drip down towards the secondary throttle plate. Donít think this is right. Maybe Iíll take the top off and retighten to see if the booster assembly might be loose or not tight enough . I have  another gasket I can throw in there as well.

Depending on the source, 29/64 to 1/2 inch for the primary; 29/64 to 5/8 inch for the secondary. Don't you just love precision?
What is the Ford number on the carb base? What is the letters on the booster venturis? The wrong secondary booster will give a different vacuum signal to open the secondary diaphragm.

Hello from good old Germany.

I'm searching for a replacement. Can someone post picture from that padding?
What a kind of material can I use for a replacement?
Thanks for your help.

Where was your car built and when ?

I believe this is an Autolite 4300 if that helps anyone looking through their pile of old carbs looking for this number.

Going to be a challenge to find one but good luck hope you do. IF you get into a pinch I possible have a NOS one (from a slightly different application)  that could fill in until you find the correct one. Just depends if this is holding up a restoration or you can wait.  Have a couple of friends that built 69 390 s that went this route so thought I would mention it.

Drivetrain / Re: POR 15 FORD Corporate Blue engine paint - too dark?
« Last post by J_Speegle on Today at 02:31:57 PM »


I've been using PlastiKote's High Heat Engine Paint stuff for the past 20 years with a high rate of success.  It's quality stuff...and I think that the colors are pretty accurate. ../and it sure wears like iron!!  PS: Don't forget to use their Engine Primer for really tough wear...  I just love the stuff.

As another suggestion remember that originally no primer was used and its application, along with applying too much paint will lead to produce an unoriginal finish and look.  We see allot of engines both rattle canned and painted that come out looking like they were dipped in paint/plastic whick really stand out as incorrect
