Just think of all the 144, 170, 200, 250 motors out there could use these! We could be rich! OK, you could be rich. I'll be happy with just a small percentage.



Looks and will work great!

So how did this end up? Did you end up with a weber on your falcon?

I am seriously looking into this right now, with a weber dg/v? An adapter plate.
But it then looks like I might need to run a different distributor as well?

Hrm So many thoughts in my brain right now.

Conceptually it came out great. It runs OK, but I may have chosen the wrong Weber. Kenny has a DG-V as I recall, but I can't recall what one I got. The powerband feels flat to me, but honestly have never had a lot of time since doing it to tweak at it. Seems to me the Autolite 1100 provided better performance. But I don't yet know the jetting on the one I have.

As for distributor, because you have no mechanical advance, there is a special vacuum-based advance function used with early Ford systems. If you put on a carburetor lacking the special vacuum advance function you will get poor results. So you need to upgrade to a later distributor having both mechanical and vacuum advance.

Doing a Duraspark II setup is the logical upgrade with a newer carburetor setup. Pretty easy to do if you csn find the parts. I found most of mine at a PicknPull. It's the harness you need since everything else can be bought new. I make my own module while Kenny did a MSD setup.

Good luck ciphering what things you can do while you're at it!
