davidvend, glad things worked out. Yes I've been down this road before . The best lessons are the ones we learn the hard way, that's how I know about the 4100 carb . Good luck with your project, and ask the group about anything that troubles you, someone here has the answer.

Here is some more info on how to ID the venturi size of these carbs.

"All Ford 2V and 4V carburetor (mfg. since 1960) have 2 markings to easily determine what they are. On the drivers side of the carburetor - right behind the accelerator pump rod - you will find what appears to be a “clockface”. Inside the “clockface” in raised characters 4100’s will read 1.08 or 1.12*. Approximately one inch directly below the “clockface”, on the mounting flange (or toe) of the carburetor, there will be stamped on engineering number. The numerals in the “clockface” refer to the primary venturi diameter in inches. The “1.08” is a 480 CFM carburetor - while the “1.12” is a hefty 600 CFM. (In 1958 only Ford made a 1.19” venturi (670 CFM) you’ll probably never see one of these)"

Some good info on that site.

Pony has been around a long time and "generally" they get good reviews BUT (and this is a BIG BUT) they are VERY expensive and as of late there have been some to say they are not as good as they used to be.

They guy (2nd owner) who I got my 56 from had them rebuild the Holley 4000 "Teapot" on mine and paid $479.50 to have it rebuilt. A kit is about 50 bucks. I would have bought a kit or two and screwed with it myself till it worked.
