Non-FE Discussion Forum / Not FE but a bit of Ford history.
« on: May 17, 2015, 07:51:26 PM »
For the past couple of days a early/mid 30s Ford Tri-motor airplane has been flying over my neighborhood. Flying out of the Hayward Airport air show that has been going on this weekend. Hard to ignore the distinct sound of the 3 Pratt & Whitney radials that power this important piece of Ford history.

FE Technical Forum / Ok Carb gurus....gotta a mystery carb

Holley list 6647. Holley book has this as a Mercury Marine 454. Fine, no CFM flow rating but jetted 68/primary, 70/sec... power valves [8.5s] in both primary and secondary. Other internet info. found has this as a 600 cfm. Wrong, has down leg boosters, "172" stamped throttle blades [pri and sec] and all indications and measurements point to a 750/780 cfm, vacuum secondaries, just like a 3310.  No "J" tube bowl vents [marine application] and a oddball throttle linkage lever, not the usual GM throttle lever found on a gazillion Holley/GM carbs. What gives? Did Mercury Marine rate the airflow different? Now I know that Mercury Marine had their own way of doing things as the Rochester Q-Jet for their marine engines are much different from the GM automotive Q-Jet as nothing from a typical rebuilding kit fits.  That kit is exclusivly M/M available from the dealers only. Found this out the hard way. BTW M/M Q-jet rebuilding kits are about $250.00 and that is jobber price.

I'd buy it but I already have 2 Fairlanes and don't need a 3rd plus enough projects to keep me busy until I'm ready for the dirt nap. email me @

FE Technical Forum / Jay, ? re: head drain holes.
« on: March 06, 2013, 07:17:01 PM »
Jay, have you ever run into problems with cyl. head drain holes and head bolt interference due to the headbolt blocking the drain? Perhaps a careless drilling of the drain holes that were not offset enough? If so what was your solution to the problem?
