and I became a 4-barrel convert.
the tame that I blamed on the rear 2.80 gears.
but there had to be more.
complete with a later holley 4180 carb,
with way too much smog stuff engineered in.
but it needed a rebuild and even now it's in pieces.
The autolite 4100 was the stock ford 4-barrel,
and holley made a modded version - the 4010.
versus the split side covers of the 4150.
May be easier to tune,
but seemed like future leakers.
The 4150 did donate it's choke mechanism.
The kit spacers didn't match up,
so a riser was made out of a phenolic scrap,
along with a Uncle Steve special gasket.
Plus this one was made to fit.
The old weld a washer trick version 3.
too lazy to drive to the tig machine.
If you notice the measuring is precision,
just equal 1:1 ratio to the throttle pin.
Still planned to use the stock ford/Lincoln one.
and keep the 2-barrel mount around just in case.
Another version 3.
Not too stoked with the gas line routing,
for now it works fine.
So how does it run?
Now it's a moonshiner.
it drives like the two barrel.
With a lead foot,
the vacuum secondaries kick in.
After a little lag,
BAM this thing moves!
If I don't watch out,
I'll need to find a donor 302/5.0 to rebuild.
