    Gonna run just fine, 'specially when I pack those atmospherically atomized droplets into my mill with a blower. A/F ratio give or take!!! Extra gas just cools the burn ;-) Best thing is I can tune it with a screwdriver and my natural senses - I DON'T NEED NO STINKIN' LAPTOP!!!!!!!

    Though... a wideband O2 sensor would help with initial tuning and regular maintenance.

    Yes, but God gave me a sniffer and eyes to read spark plugs! "Old School"

    I'm not disputing that sensors/computer/EFI are technically ideal and more efficient, I have "later model" daily drivers too (I rarely mess with them, just drive them and enjoy the dependability); but if you've never built a car and tuned it with your five (six? ;-) ) senses, you're missing out on one of life's corporeal pleasures. It's very "zen".

    I've spent enough time with worn out carbs to have lost my "zen" about them. I've gotten very one and done with things, I'll fool with it once until its right, and then I don't want to touch it again.

    Anyways, he spent those three weeks looking for a FLOAT for an unbelievably obscure downdraft carb that is on his '27 Renault.
    I was there when he got the carb back together the thing running "properly". He just just looked up to the sky, closed his eyes and listened without moving at all.

    ...and that is the correct path for you, my friend!

    I, too, have become very lazy in my old age, but I haven't lost the joy of becoming "one" with the machine (that usually comes after hours and hours of bloody mortal combat with the @#$%&%!!! p.o.s. machine...)

    I went through 4 carbs on a chevy 305 in a pontiac parisienne and then the engine blew up (head gasket most likely) and started dumping fuel, oil, and coolant out the back of the engine. I don't really have a problem with carbs, but getting anyone to actually work on one any more is like trying to find an honest politician. If you can't do all of it yourself, you're pretty much out of luck. As that was my first experience with them and the absolute abysmal support locally for them, I was completely put out. I'd probably still be driving that car if it was TBI (the chevy system actually worked rather well).

    I also have dual-quads one of my non-Hemi, non-wing '65 Belvedere II's. Love 'em!!! Nothing beats that induction sound!!!

    65 Plymouth Belvedere. I remember them well. Drive train was solid. A person could buy them cheap $50-200 in the 1970s as they were not a young person's car, except in the hot rod, sleeper mode. Can never forget the sound a Chrysler starter made.

    They sure raced the crap out of them back in the day - and won. Hardtop looks bitchin'!!! I have 2 hardtops and a '64 Dodge 330 2-door post, all "B-bodies". To your point, the Dodge sedans were true little old lady cars in their basic form - and also first body style to receive the 426 race (crossram) hemi...

    Anyone have a Ford part # for either of the box 351 A/C brackets (meaning the early one for the GM compressor OR the more common one for the Nippondenso)?

    Thanks in advance!!!

    It might be a couple months, but when I pull my 351 out, I can see if there is a part number on the bracket. I don't recall seeing one though, I know it has "5.8L" stamped on it

    I can't find the proper section in the parts manual to go with this. There is no listing under 19D896, and in 2888 it says "see 23.1 or 23.2" which my manual doesn't have. The chunk of numbers on the picture is the base part number, you need the prefix and suffix to make it properly useful. Every Ford AC bracket is going to have this same base part number associated with it.

    Thanks to everyone! Hopefully I can make some progress finding one with that, and another helpful member who PM'd me. Yes, Brown_Muscle, you were reading my mind! That would be helpful, even just some pics from a few different angles with a scale or tape measure would be great in case I need to fabricate.

    Edit: I should say "them" because it looks like all the associated A/C pieces are very different than what I have on my '79/302/Frigidaire, but I need to take gadget73's exploded view and go study under Quincy's hood to be sure...
