Bob: On My 60' It was a 4100 it is a FOMOCO product (if it is original) Look on the drivers side of the Carb it will have a clock like circle with either 1.12 or (1.08 I thank) this is the Jet size.

I replaced mine with an Edlebrock 600cfm nice power and bolt on with no adjustments.

Hope this helps.

An autolight 4100 with a 1:12 on the side on a 352. A carter
AFB on the 430 engine. The ford # on the autolight is 5752308
with auto trans and 352 .carter # is 5752040 with auto and 430 I guess someone threw the little tag away that was screwed on it a while ago. That's if you have the origenal
Good luck.....................................Bill

After tinkering with the factory carbs, I went Edelbrock Performer 600 cfm as well. It bolted right on, air cleaner fit nicely. Electric choke. Runs great. Only adjustment was the idle screw and idle mixture. 15 minutes........ Send it to the Carburetor Factory in Sacramento. 24 hour turn-around and they'll rebuild it for $150-200 or get the Edelbrock for $250- LEON

Mine has been on there for at least 15 yrs. Great carb !!!!!!!!

I started the car tonight. It has sat for about 3 weeks. Two pumps. One little squirt, and one to the floor to set the choke. It started right up and ran at a moderate fast idle. After about 5 min, I barely hit the gas and it idled right down to normal. Never even a hiccup. Let run for about 1/2 hr. Get the oil nice n' warm too.
