Hello all.

I found an old holley carb out in the shed and I was thinking about rebuilding it. This would be my first carb rebuild so I'm wondering if this would be a good carb for a 1st time rebuilder?

Is there an online guide that I could follow for rebuilding it?

I haven't been able to find much information about this carb other than it appears to be from a 1961 Ford Truck and it's a 4BBL with a manual choke.

The numbers on the carb are as follows:

C1TE9510-AM
List 2348
193
6R 2222 B


There is also a tag with the following numbers on it:

Ford
C1TE AM B 1JC

Can anyone tell me any more info about this carb like CFM, engine that it came on, and if it would be a well-performing setup?

Also, what rebuild kit do I need and where can I find it?

Thank you!
-Tony

carb rebuild

Take the data you have off of the tag with you to your local auto parts store. If they dont have a kit on the shelf, they can get one in a couple days.
That is a non standard Holley Carb made under contract to Ford Motor Company and you wont find it listed in a standard Holley book.
As you correctly surmized, it is off of a 1961 Ford truck. They should be able to tell you what engine it was off of.

I'm curious as to what your hoping to use this carb for?
Yes it's a holley and a 4 barrel but it's not likely to be a performance designed carb, if it came on a truck in 1961.
It may only be 450CFM or so,and will not be usefull on most modern engines.
Getting a rebuild kit for it shouldn't be difficult but you may not like the way it works on your vehicle.
I pick up this type of carb from time to time and just strip them for parts-float bowls,jets,linkages,vacuum canisters etc. and junk the main body.
just my 2cents.:cool:

Holley Ford Carb

If that came off of a any big block, it will most likely be a 550 CFM, and if you are going to put it back on that same engine, it shouldnt be a problem. As far as putting it on another engine, if its a 302 or even a 351, it would do a very good job there as well. As the man said, though, its a bread and butter carb, and theres not a lot you can do to jazz it up.

List # 2348 would have been an OE carburetor for a 1961-62 Ford Truck with a 292. You'll need to check with Holley to see if they still offer kits for this specific carburetor.

Making a short story long

My Wife works for O'Reilly Auto Parts, a quick call to the store came up with this info.

Walker kit # 15150 is the rebuild kit they offer for your carb.
Couldnt find any Holley listings.

Is it possible that your carb is actually a Ford Flattop 4 bbl? These were made for some time by Holley and look very much like a 4010 series.

Couldnt find any CFM info, but based on the size of engine, am guessing its about 450 CFM.

Does your carb look like the one in this ebay listing?

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&rd=1&item=7942735920&category=33550

It supposedly came off a 1962 292, although the ford part number would lead me to believe it's from about 1959...

Anyway, the things to notice are that it has a float bowls on the front and rear which are removable via four bolts. If your carb is set up like this, you're set. That means it's a 4150 or 4160 series, and very common.

Also, the ebay listing is incorrect, as the guy claims it has 2 "metering plates", but actually, they're metering blocks.
