Default My 1960 Squarebird

Cathie has a carb tag that reads

C 5A F F then D 5FA or C 5 A F F then D 5 F A

Anyone know what that is? It might be an Autolite 4100 or a Carter. Not sure...

Here is what her carb looks like.

Thumbs up 352

Hi Cathie, & welcome, hopefully everything will work out to expectation. It's a coincidence talking about the move being 352 miles, that is also your 352c.i. engine size.

That is a newer carb. Extra chock tube and no fuel filter. I don't think the filter would fit the newer ones. The answer to the other ? She got the camara I got the car! One of those weird moments.
