I NOW ITS A DOUBLE PUMPER
A Holley 4118's not a double pumper- it IS a dual feed, however- a lot of guys get this mixed up sometimes. Has vcuum secondaries, was originally a performance aftermarket carb for the 289/302 sized Ford. As long as the linkage can be worked out for the engine you want to use it on, it'll work fine being as how it's a vacuum 2'ndary carb. Might take some tuning, just like any carb.

vinniekq2 650 would work very well on a performer and mild 350 with headers.

Holley's Interactive Carb Selector recommends a 600 to 650 CFM w/ vac secondaries for a "mildly modified" 350 with a max RPM of 6,000 in a vehicle weighing more than 3100 lbs ... etc.

Here' an actual CFM calculator which accepts some variables (like Volumetric Efficiency).

I like holleys because i find them pretty simple to work on.
Your holley 4418 is supposed to be 735 cfm, which may or may not be a good thing, depending on engine displacement, rpm range, and intended use.

66GMC I just took another look.

Primary fuel bowl #134-103
Secondary bowl #134-102
Which are center-hung fuel bowls. (That's a GOOD thing.)

The primary bowl is listed as possibly being on a MARINE carb?


In any case ... both bowls will have accelerator pumps attached to the bottom of BOTH bowls if it's actually a "double-pumper"

Edit: Sorry, I was typing this while you posted a response to my last one.
My aplogies ... not trying to be argumentative.

If I'm reading the Numerical Listing correctly, it says it's a 725 CFM 4150 series with a yellow spring in the vacuum secondaries.


IMO, a VS carb is better for MOST street-driven vehicles (especially with an automatic trans) anyways.
yea is a double pumper
