351C 4V Carburetor

Hey guys,

Starting the initial disassembly to eventually pull the engine/tranny.  This is the carburetor I found and I'm guessing it's not the original...  It's a Holley

Mike,

That is not the OEM carb for your car. The one that you need is a Motorcraft 4300 part D2ZF-DA. The DA suffix on this one makes it correct for a Q code automatic California car, but I have been looking for one for a couple years and have never seen one. I had to settle for a D2ZF-BB carb which is the correct one for your car for the other 49 states. They are still very hard to find, but do come up once and a while. I will keep my eye on one for you and let you know if I run across one.

How about this one??  Probably needs a full rebuild I'm sure.

I would say no. That number is for a 4300D, which is the spreadbore carburetor and requires a matching manifold. Unless you want original for some reason, I would steer away from the 4300 series carburetor. They aren't that easy to tune and maintain. I thought you were looking at the Summit carburetor?

I guess I'd say I want to keep an "original" look but at the same time improve performance and drivability by upgrading components you cannot see.  To be honest I've always been on the fence regarding original vs upgrading to newer components but so far everything has been pretty stock on this car (until this carburetor).  As I continue with the disassembly that will help me determine which direction to go.

Just to clarify the engine is a 72 Q code correct? If yes, there would need to be an adaptor plate between the intake and the carb. Or, a PO swapped a 70-71 intake onto the car or perhaps a complete 70-71 engine. Chuck

It appears that is a replacement carburetor that somebody used to replace the 4300:

Yes, it's a 72 Q code with what looks to be a replacement after market carb.  has the correct intake part number...
