Scout / Motorcraft Carburetor help?

by Mar » Tue, 02 Sep 2003 09:44:34

Hey All:

I've got a '71 IH Scout 800 with a 304, and it has a Motorcraft carb
on it.  I don't think it's original, and I'm wondering if it's close
to what should be on there...

It has a tag on it that states D4PE  FB  A 8G-10.

I don't really know what the numbers mean.  I think it needs a
rebuild, and I don't want to rebuild it if it's too "large" for the
engine.

Any help would be greatly appriciated!

IIRC the IH Scouts used a Carter Thermoquad carb...  unless you have an
emissions inspection I'd go with a small (500-600 CFM) Carter AFB
("Edelbrock Performer") or AVS ("Edelbrock Thunder") which are still
available brand new.

I'm clueless re: the Motorcraft carb; I'm not a Ford guy.

Hi Nate

I think the larger engines did and I forgot to specify it had a 2-bbl
carb...Apparently it had a Holley when it was new, but someone stuck
this on there, and the truck seems to produce a fair bit of black
smoke and sound a bit flooded when it's revved, but the ***is wide
open.

I'm not much of a Ford guy either...I've played with a Carter on an
older 318 and a few Quadrajets, but not much in the way of this
beast...

The carb you have is for a 1974 Torino w/351c engine. Crossed the number on
the Holley web sight.
Original carb was either manual or automatic ***
Holley numbers 64-3257 auto and 64-3137 manual choke.

Cool, that's what I wanted to know.  Would that be too big a
carburetor for the 304- should I rebuild it, or grab one for a 302 and
rebuild it?
