  1. I have been reading a lot of the post on this site as well as a couple others sites and from what I have read a 500 CFM carburetor is about the maximum size carburetor you should use on a stock 292 ford Y block motor. However a lot of people have recommended the Edelbrock 1405 which is a 600 CFM and good right out of the box. Help, I am ready to get a new carburetor and need to know what would be best on my cheap budget and stock 292 motor. Thanks
  2. ECZ 9425 B is the casting number of the intake manifold I am looking for. Thanks
  3. Looking for a good intake manifold. ECZ 9425 B. Thank you
  4. Thank you for your reply. I have a couple of other carburetors that I will post later to see if you or someone else can identify. I have been looking at that web site but I haven't signed up yet. They have a lot of good info for us 56 ford guys. Thanks again
  5. I've been carrying around this carburetor for over 10 years. I am wanting to get away from my teapot holley 4100 carburetor and don't know if this is a possibility. On one side is #7003 and 33101 and on the other side is #5271 and 33101. Can anyone tell me what this is and would this be a carburetor I could use on a 292 or should I see if I can sell it? Thanks
  6. Thank you for your reply. It appears you know a lot about these carburetors. What would you choose to replace the teapot? Thanks again
  7. Will a Autolite 4100 carburetor bolt onto a stock four barrel manifold that has a Holly teapot 4000 carburetor on it now? Thank you
  8. That could be part of my problem. This car has set in the garage for 9 years without being started. My Uncle bought the car new in 1956 and died in 2005. My Cousin put the car in his garage and left it there. He wanted the garage space and ask me if I wanted to keep the car in the family and that is how I got it. I've started replacing electrical parts to get it running again and now I am on the fuel system. Thanks for your help and replies.
  9. Thank you for the links. I am sure I will be using them in the near future. Thanks again
  10. What carburetor did you switch to? Has that fixed your problem? Let me know if you change fuel pumps and that stops your flow back. Thanks for your reply
  11. Will I have to take the carburetor apart to check the power valve? It looks like the carburetor was rebuilt not to long ago as the bottom stage is very clean. Thanks for your reply and suggestion.
  12. I replaced the points, plugs, condenser, distributor cap, rotor, and spark plug wires when I first got the car so I don't think this is my problem. I am going to check the fuel pump and carb to see if I can find a leak or if the fuel is flowing back to the tank. Thanks for your reply.
  13. Its a 12 volt system and the cables seem to be in good shape. Not sure about the starter. I will check this out. Thanks
