If you don't have a built engine, that carb will be way too much,  Get back with the results.

750 CFM is a huge carburetor.  Try it though.  Maybe you have enough goodies to heat up the fuel in the ignition chamber, but I doubt it.   ;D You need to stay in the 500 range of CFM.  650 would be pushing it.  You will get wash down in the cylinders and waste a ton of gas.  Bigger is definitely not better with these engines.

we have a winner lol the 68 motorcraft takes the job. amazeing that a 68 carb that has never bin rebuilt (as far as we know) is running better than any of our hollys. i do plan on still trying to fined a fi setup.

I have always preferred a Motorcraft on  a Ford engine.  In fact, I rebuild carburetors, and I only rebuild Motorcrafts.  Not only are they easy to rebuild and adjust, they are tough.

Hollys are great carbs for performance only app;ication. Its good to have another carb while your learning to tweak the holley. I have an ed 625 cfm carb and they are nearly foolproof.

Ij you head to your local dragstrip youll find must guys use holleys on there drag cars. For street use you cant beat the Ed carbs they are so simple and cheap. You can often pick nice ones up off craigs list for $50. They have actually been around since the 60's. Edelbrock bought up carter and there carbs are based on the Carter AFB design.

If by performance applications, you mean drag strip racing, I don't have a clue.  I don't race.  My concern with a Mustang is for daily use as a grocery getter, and a classic that looks good.  I don't have any motorcraft carbs to work on do I?   ;D

Most likely if you tapped the side of the carb, you unstuck the float.

The diaphragm in the pump is probably hard, and the spring may be rusted and about to quit working.  Seriously, I would overhaul that carb.  You can do it in one afternoon.

Get one of those round stiff brushes to scrub it after you take it out of the vat.  Sitting in the vat should only take an overnight soaking. If you don't have an air compressor, get a can of carb cleaner so you can spray out all the holes before you put it back together.

You need to adjust the secondry float so that the secondaries get enough fuel when you stomp on it.It's choking itself to death.  Also make sure the secondary butterflies are opening up all the way by adjusting the rod.

ok uhm well the secondaries are opening up all the way, but how do i ujust the amount of fuel it gets. all there is is a brass piston looking thing that is atached to the secondaries, and i dont see how to ajust that. i thot the amount of fuel and air it gets when opening is based on how far they open when flored. so how do i get it to dump more fuel? oh and it is a 4300, off a 68 lincion with a 460.
