I'm a novice car guy and on a whim I decided to sell my jeep and pic up a 70 stang. I've always loved them. Anyway, I'm trying to find a replacement carburetor for the original. We already pulled the old one, it's tag reads D4PE EC and below it reads E 1A 09. Is this the original? Anyone know of a deal on a direct replacement, preferably with lightning fast shipping? Does edelbrock manufacture something that will bolt directly in it's place? Other suggestions? Keep in mind, I don't have a huge budget but I need something reliable. Car will be my daily driver, so as a sidenote, what will increase my fuel economy?
sorry, I think I just posted this topic twice, my bad
that already is the replacement carb...1969 - 72302", 351", 400" ENG (REPL CARB)D4PE-9510-EA, EB, EC, *** FBFORD 2100there are several articles on rebuilding those and they are very easy to rebuild... only need some carb spray and a kit.. no need to soak those.. usually.. do me a favor... when you take the top off the carb... before you release the float pin retainer clip.. push a finger on the float lever over the needle and seat to bring the float to the existing setting.. scribe a mark on the inside of the carb.. so you can reestablish the same float height it was factory assembled with..i have some tricks to make these carbs run properly when you have finished rebuilding them.. i will have to post those tonight.. because of time constraints this morning... check back... if you need a carb... they are available.. thru some parts stores... online.. you might want to keep your core... until you verify the replacement works properly.. so you have something to fall back on.. a holley 4412 will also bolt on.. but need some fuel line to connect... i personally would keep that one.. unless its totally destroyed...type in 2100 into the search window above right... more later..
