Holley Carb ID.

I have an old Holley Carb that was given to me. I want to rebuild it. None of the numbers that I can find match any resouces I have. Here are the numbers;

On Choke Horn:
D5TE-9510-CB
LIST 6945
2497

On a Metal Tag Attached:
D4TE CB 7J6

It is a Motorcraft model. (I think I can grind that off)

It's odd that the metal tag and the stamped # don't match.

"Prefix": D4TE = 1974 ford truck, D5TE = 1975 ford truck

"Basic": 9510 is the ford "basic" number for a carburetor.
This basic number applies to any model of car or truck.
Because it is common to all carbs, it was usually omitted on those very small tags.

"Suffix": CB was used to identify variations. (Engine size, Auto Trans, Electric Choke, etc.)

My guess is that this is likely about a 600/650 CFM square-bore vaccuum-secondary Holley carb off of a 74/75 F100-350 pickup with a 390 4V engine.

Holley carb

Hope you didn't buy that Holley "quickie Kit" yet. Holley
produced carbs for Ford but not everything is the same.
Some Ford Holleys have different metering bodies that only use Motorcraft jets. You won't find idle mixture screws on the metering block, they are located in the base plate. A lot of those floating around were made when everybody was nervous & jerky about emissions and fuel shortage so they are all jetted lean for a stock motor. If you need to jet them, you will have to go to a dealer, (hopefully you'll get someone older than the carb) and see if jets are still available. I had to buy a pack of 5 or 6 of the same number. Be sure to match holes in your gaskets with the old ones.
I've all but given up on old carbs because the metering orifices and venturies deteriorate from water, bad gas, dirt Etc. I might buy fuel bowls at flea markets to save some bucks and hang them on a Pro Form body.

66gmc is right. it is a 600 cfm. the tag # is the only # that is usable. you will most likely need to go to ford for a kit. BUT you can buy a new 1850 for about the same cost. chunk the old one. it's 30 years old and probably trashed from electrolysis.
