66 carburetor
« on: December 03, 2010, 07:06:50 PM »
Hi, I have a 66 mustang with a 289 and an auto box. The carb fitted is a autolite C7D F -V which idle and  runs rough. My question is should I get this carb rebuilt or source the correct carb for this year and engine.  Thank you.

If you're just doing a stock driver/cruiser go for the correct carb for the motor. . .  8)

Most carburetor rebuild shops sell a replacement model carburetor without any concern about year, features or part number of what you get - in other words, you need a Ford 2100 2 barrel, you get a Ford 2100 2 barrel. The one you have is for a 1967 Mustang, Fairlane or Falcon (Comet too most likely) with an AT and smog. If you have the patients (and luck), the one you want is a C6DF-B (or C6DF-F if you have California smog, DSO 71 or 72). To be truthful, there are internal parts that are different (main jets 51F vs 45F, booster venturi for examples) that make a whole lot of performance differences. Glen (Soaring) rebuilds carburetors to keep busy so when he chimes in, see what he says.

These 2100 carbs are mostlly the same.  It just matters in the hook up..  You can make a 2100 work on any 289 engine.  The best ones are from the 1965-66 Fords though.

Thank you all for your replies. Can you guys recommend a good shop to buy a replacement carb. I live in Ireland so sending carbs over and back with problems would be costly. Again thank you for your help.

ponycarbs  would be your safe bet, but expensive.  I can rebuild that carb for half that price, but the mailing charge may be expensive on your half.

Hi Soaring thanks for your reply. I looked at their website and they say their carbs are remanufactured, is that needed or will a simple rebuild work.

A simple rebuild is all you need.  I'm not even sure what remanufactured means.  It could mean they replace the butterfly and all the screws, etc,. but that would be a rare need.  Get the number off the tab and order a rebuild kit from autozone and you could rebuild it yourself.  The kits come with every part you will need.  You can rebuild it yourself and save a whole lot of money.

Bow not necessary, enlightenment is. Other "master" have flaw, need enlightenment (and a Ford Car parts Book).

OK.  Let me or Jim know if you need further help.  You can buy whole carbs off Ebay with all the parts you are missing.
