[WTB] Motorcraft 4300D
#1
Hi Guys,

I have a 1973 351C 4V Q-code (convertible) with an automatic transmission. I've bought the car in November 2016 and learning more and more about the car and (unfortunately) found out that I have a Carter carburetor. After searching the internet , I understand that the correct carburator is a motorcraft 4300D!

I would like to restore my car as original as possible so I am hoping that somebody on the forum has one of these carburetors for sale.

I am looking for the following : D3ZF-MA  Motorcraft 4300D

Any suggestions are welcome if you have more info!

Thanks,

Jeroen

Thanks! I did see the really expensive one already. It does have a $200 core deposit in the price.... . Didn't see the other 2 yet. Guess I am looking in the wrong section on ebay .

I first did a search for D3ZF-MA

Then did a search for 4300D

Keep in mind for the $200 core you have to have a 4300D to send back to them.

Depends how original you are looking to return the car back to factory condition. Good luck.

JD,
Might I recommend that if you want to be as original as possible, I suggest that you buy the best 4300D you can afford to spend and then put it on a shelf or in the trunk !!!   
The 4300D is not a very reliable or tunable carb except by a few exceptionally gifted tuners. If your car runs well now, don't mess with it, IMO.....
Thanks Jay

Hi Jay,
I like challenges ;-)  Do you know an exceptionally gifted carburetor restorer that can tune it properly as well? Any help is much appreciated!
My car will be completely stock so hopefully no reliability issues after a complete restoration.....
Thanks,
Jeroen

I would do this one if I were you.  I am going with a Holley on mine when I can find a nice 750 DP.
