I still think those were great carbs. Better than a Holley in many ways. This thread should go in the database, knowing the part # is always handy, thanks for the info K.

Ain't No Problem 3J!

As a matter of fact, HOLLEY helped (correction) design the carb for FORD back when (1958) and many of the parts will interchange such as jets and power valves. PONY CARBS and CFI still handle small parts not available from FORD. The 1.12 venturi marking flows 600cfm and there was one special carb released in 1958 that was a 1.19 venturi marking that flowed well over that although I cannot remember the rated cfm.




CORRECTION: The 4100 was introduced in 1957. Here is one style on a Y-BLOCK.



Notice the divorced choke and extended accelerator pump housing?

I am getting old and some of these things slip my mind...

Wow! That brings back fond memories! My first car was a '64 Galaxie 2 door. 390 with the 4100. Also my very first carb rebuild at the ripe old age of 17! I layed out a big sheet of butcher paper and took each piece off and layed it out on the paper in order. Cleaned each piece one at a time, then put it all back together. It worked too! LOL

This illustration shows a HOLLEY 4010 Series so the design has merit.

Learning about my 4100

Greetings all!
First time poster here. I just did my first rebuild on my 4100 autolite for my 66 mustang. I have a lot of questions since It runs but is giving me a couple small problems. I'll wait till I've finished searching the forum though. First I wanted to ask these 2 questions?
Ive done alot of searching and can't find the C2SZ 9A586 D offered from motorcraft. Anyone have an idea where I could find it?
Also, 62galaxiguy could you post that number please that you ordered the Complete Ford Carburetor Guide from?

Thank you in advance,
Shamus Dundon

Your local FORD dealer.

Click on the URL marked PONY Carburetors and it will give you contact information regarding the book.

So far batting 500

Thank you KULTULZ!
Finally found the manual on pony site. Odering it today.
I called my ford dealer and he said he couldn't order the
C2SZ 9A586 D, and that I would have to get it from an outside source. From what I saw searching around on the web, autozone should have what I need, "parts wise" but comes with poor instructions. It the good instructions that come with the C2SZ 9A586 D I really need, because I'm ignorant of the ways of carbs.(ok the whole car too)
Any opinions on whether or not I'll be good to go with the right parts, poor instructions, and the complete manual?
Any further advice would be apreciated.
Shamus

I would try another dealer, either FORD or LINC-MERC as they are still available. If you cannot get a genuine, I would source one from PONY CARBS as the one you will get from AUTOZONE will be junk.

I have an extra kit here, I would hate to part with it...you just never know when you might need it...

Thank you again Mr. K. I'll do as you suggested. I also sent an email to ford.com support to see if they could assist me as well.
I'll post when I have more. Pony told me I should call back around May for the Ford Carb guide. I'll post more when I get new info
Sincererly,
