Those five gallon drums of parts washing liquid are increasingly hard to get. A close friend of mine owns a service station in Queens. He could not buy it at any price for his parts washing machine. He was thrilled when I found a pail of the stuff at an upstate New York NAPA.

Even so the stuff they sell now does not work as well as the cleaners of 20 years ago. It is a trade off of clean parts versus the environment.

I did forget to mention that on the driver's side of the carb, there is a molded in number. The only one that I see with the carb in place on the engine.

It is: A
1.12

I have rebuilt some carbs many years ago and a one barrell on my Hudson Metropolitan about 5 years ago and it is still running great, so most likely can go it. It is just that I like understanding how I am fixing something on top of just fixing it. It may be obvious once I look inside and see dirt or who knows what. My 1961 Lincoln with only 37K has this problem also, but much less.

So, I ask for a Autolite 4100 carb rebuild kit at the parts store?

Thanks

Yes. Besure to also ask for a secondary diaphrgm for your car. For some obscure reason it is not included in most kits. There are two styles of attaching the secondary diaphragm. Make sure to get the right one.

I will have to decide if I want to do this before the Houston Auto Show (big new car show) at the end of Jan. because I have been invited to show my '60 Bird and '61 Lincoln in a small section of the show set aside for Antique Cars. This year they want to showcase T-birds and Lincolns and it seems that most folks have bullet birds or flair birds (I have a flair bird too, however). They want one of each body style. I only have weekends to work on it and at least it is running now. It might be a gamble after my carb rebuild. Anyway, I will get the kit as per your advice and see how aggressive I feel.
I should be able to complete the job in a weekend. This car is fast. Better power to weigh ratio than my 345 hp 428 in my '66. With the newly rebuilt trans, it gets with it when it goes into passing gear. With a rebuilt carb, it shoule fly. And later with headers, even more.

The rebuild kit from hygrade, not the tune up kit, Should come with a secondary diaphragm. Two of mine did. They come with plastic arms to replace the metal ones on the older models. Such as the 60. I have a 60 & 66 What rear is in your 66? My 60 feels stronger with the 310 verses 300 in the 66. That's ratio not HP.......Later Bill

I plan on at least trying to buy a rebuild kit this weekend. My '66 Town Hardtop (white w/turquoise interior) is in storage now (I alternate which two I have in my garage at home), but I go to it every weekend to start the cars and I will check. The data plate should have a differential code I believe.

I found out that the 1.08 is 480 cfm,
the 1.12 is 600 cfm and the
1.19 (only on 1958s) is 670 cfm.
