Here's a pic of the choke assembly with the filter housing on - you can see it's fairly close but there is some room.


The rebuilt 4100 carb.....
2 1/2 inches from the edge of the carb to the edge of the choke housing and about 3 1/4 inches from the edge of the filter housing to where the housing drops down - so about 1 1/4 inches to play with.





and here is the fuel filter set-up I was talking about on a 1960 with the 352 and Ford Autolite 4100 carb.




Hope that new carb works.

Eric

Eric,

Thank you for the photos! You have gone above and beyond with your posts. That helps me a lot when I get this thing bolted on.

Now, here are photos of the carb I got in the mail. I noticed a few differences.

That one looks nice, there's a number stamped in the left/front foot of the carb, below the 112. That will tell you what it was originally meant for. Yours has a hot idle compensator, and the heat tube comes in from the rear. The casting date is early 64. I'm thinking it's from a 65 FE block.
