Carboretor

I have a 51 ford custom and since the trucks and cars werent too different i figured this would be an apropriate site to use.

Anyway im having carbretor problems and am thinking of rebuilding a couple. But before i do that i was wondering if any one new if i could get a brand new carbretor for it. Its a 239 flathead V8.

Have you tried summit racing for some new flare? Might wanna try Dennis Carpenter for an OE style carb.

Go to fordbarn.com

There are a couple of guys there that build them professionally. Just ask who rebuilds carbs for the 8BA. I think KenCT or Uncle Max are the guys that can help you. The rebuild kits don't help much IMO unless you can clean the fine idle circuits.

When you get one rebuilt, be sure to put on an inline filter that you can easily replace.
