Re: [DML] Contemplating a Carb Swap



OK, the 1100 *IS* a dog. That is why Ford dropped it in favor of the Holley 1900 Series, which also turned out to be dogs so Ford dropped them in favor of the Carter YF Series, which turned out to be dogs as well, at which time they went EFI.

Unfortunately nobody seems to make a decent 1 barrel carburetor. Even 1 barrel Rochesters give their owners fits. Your best bet is to buy a 1 barrel to 2 barrel adapter plate and put a 2 barrel of your choice on it. Even a 2GC would be an improvement over the 1100. That's what I eventually plan to do to my trucks (300 inch 6's under YFA's and YFB's).

I feel your pain. My Carters are as unpredictable as the weather.

If you splice in an electric pump into your fuel line you won't have to crank the engine so long to start the car after sitting. Let the pump prime the carb for a few seconds, then it should start right up, decent carb permitting.

This is how a 2100 starts on a DeLorean (video credit Farrar Hudkins):
