Glen I have been in the FAQ portion of our site, but was requesting the actual site that BlackShadow posted showing the VIN plate of a Mustang and the decode. I thought was cool and wanted that particular site to have for my car, which is not listed on our FAQ section that I could find?

That's all for now.

Sorry Jeff  it a program I have and not a website. I got it so long ago.. I don't know if you can still even find it. I think it was one I kept from my Windows 95 days..haha. I had an earlier one from my Window 3.0 days and running a 286 but I think it long gone .. But if you want to post your info I can run Decode for you.

Well, thank you blackshadow.  It took me the better part of a year to collect all that FAQ information and post it.  We get a lot the same questions asked over and over, so I just decided to make a library of information regarding many of those questions.  Mustang Monthly has a lot of how-to do things.  Unfortunately, the FAQ section I added only answers questions regarding the classics.  For the Fox bodies and SN-95s you just have to research for yourself.  In addition to my 65 I also own an 03 Mach1, but it is computer controlled, and if anything were to go wrong with it, I'll just take it to a Ford dealership.

Hello.  I just joined this forum and was interested in this discussion.

I , too, have a 64 1/2 289 4 bbl "D" engine with a 4 speed manual trans.  Mine was build in June.  Last March, the engine caught fire while I was driving it.  Fortunately, no one was injured.  There was very little damage to the outside of the car, so I decided to have the engine rebuilt.  I had the carb rebuilt rather than buy a new one.  It is a C4GF-AE Autolite 4100.  When I got it back, it looked great.  However, when it was installed, it started to leak out of the front float bowl.  The mechanic doing the engine work replaced the economizer value three times, and although the leak slowed, it was still present.  (There was no leak when the carb was off of the car, only when it was on the car and the engine was running.)  All the screws have been torqued correctly, and there are no visible cracks anywhere.  I'm debating whether I should send it back to the company that rebuilt it (they have offered to try to fix it at no charge), or just buy a new/rebuilt one.  My mechanic suspects that the intense heat of the fire put a crack somewhere in the housing.  The company that rebuilt it said no; they swear that there were no cracks anywhere.  So, would such a fire damage the unit?  Would cracks be hidden?  Is it possible to magnaflux the carb to see if there are any cracks? 

Thank you, Goldie

Welcome to the forum.
That's not a pleasant introduction tale but you seem to have most of it under control. I would take the offer from the company that did the carburetor rebuild first. As that is the correct carburetor for your car and is relatively rare, try to keep it if you are concerned about the car being correct. A rebuilt one will most likely not be the correct one and there is no such thing as a "new" carburetor for a 46 year old car. I don't know if a rebuilder can or even uses a magnaflux process on a carburetor but they have other ways to find glitches. You may want to set the carburetor up on 4 long 5/16 bolts, fill the float bowl (use paint thinner to be safe), set it on a bench and observe what and where the leak is before committing to any other action.
Jim

I agree with Jim.  I would first send the carb back to the company that rebuilt it and have them make it right.  It could be anything from the floats set too high to a bad power valve to a bad needle and seat.  Make sure the rebuild is on their nickel.

Thank you Jim and Soaring for the welcome and the advice.  The idea of setting it up on the 5/16 bolts is a good one, Jim.  I will try that.  My sense, however, is that I will end up sending it back to the company to let them figure out what's wrong.  I will follow up when I have some news.  Hopefully the news will be good.  Again, my thanks.  Goldie

Sounds like a plan Goldie.  Let us know how it turns out.
