Another Carb Question

OK OK here is another Carburetor question. I decided to take a side trip on my way home today and stopped by a local (old) junk yard, salvage yard, ..ect. Usually I never explain why I am there, other than I just want to look. Well this time I decided to talk to the old guy, and tell him I was just looking for carburetors off small engine vehicles. He told me to go look in an old school bus. I thought I had died and gone to Carb heaven. This guy had each carb labled as to what it was and what it came off of and year. Anyway. He had several webers there. and One was labled 1980 Ford Fiesta. After a little research I found that this is another Holley Weber type carb made for the Ford 1.6 liter engines. Has anybody done any research or played with this carb? It is a Holley Weber 740. I held it up to a holley weber 5200 from a Pinto and the butterflies were definetly smaller. I am thinking it could be similar to the one from the Fiat X1/9. Let me know your thoughts.
Besides he only wants 20.00 for it. I have probably that much buried inmy couch.

Turn it till it breaks, then back off 1/4 turn

Re: Another Carb Question

i carry a base [ the kind of plastic block] that goes under
a carb same size as a stock hitachi carb and try for very
few elec connections or vaccuum lines. if it matches try it

Re: Another Carb Question

I am using a carb from a 1978 Toyota Corolla with the 1.6 liter. It is a direct bolt on, easy to hook up. I only ran a couple vac. lines. Do have to cut a small channel in the thermal gasket, about an inch long, to match the thermal gasket(base plate?) to the carb. Cannot give a road report on it yet as the Zuk is still torn down. It idles good and throttles up fast. No stumble like the stock carb. I believe the stock carb is a 26/28 this one is 28/28. hopefully by end of December it will be on the road again will update then....later

Re: Another Carb Question

Good suggestion from oldzook on carrying a spacer to match to.
If you buy that H-W 740 & can't use it , you can sell it to me for a small profit .
Stock Sami carb is 26/30.

That's all from this corner

Re: Another Carb Question

Hey DannyL,
I know the Pony is a good carb. I went on a run with the guy that wrote the Pony article in IZook. I like to go Junk Yard Looking, Sort of like one man's garbage is another man's treasure. I was just trowing htat information out to see what other people thought. I can afford to throw away the 20.00 dollars for experimentation, while saving up the money to buy a Pony. Thanks for getting back to me

Re: Another Carb Question

dannyl is right pony carb is simple and not that hard to do
i was going to buy from him when i thought my stock carb was
going bad, i found my problem and fixed but have bought 2
used webers 1 earlier model hitachi and a aisan since all
do not work thru the computer can be adjusted both webers
came with rebuild kits which i did not need to use cleaned
the other two without rebuilding all 4 work well on my
sammi on the street and have wheeled some carb kits for the
jap carbs are only $22 bucks if needed i run a fuel regulator. i like to figure out things and will keep messing
with carbs till i decide which is best for me. the aisan
carb is off a 78 toy corolla the hitachi is from a datsun
b210 the webers 1 was for a datsun one for a mg i have also
used the weber i put on my opel gt. i like manual chokes
best so far also gives hand throttle sorry about the long
post, but i 4wheel for fun and to learn both by doing and
asking others. ponys work but the first guy had to figure
it out. they were only made a couple of years i heard and
will run out some day i checked and could not get parts in
the states for them. watch your base size on carbs try for
few vacuum lines and only 1 electrical connection and post
how the holley does

Re: Another Carb Question

Well, This is what I have found out so far. The Carburetor that I picked up is a 32/32 DFTA (whatever that means) The mounting holes are almost an exact match (almost) There is enough metal and room to egg shape the holes alittle to get it to work. There is ONE electrical connection and about 4 vaccum lines to hook up or block off, do not know which yet. I will keep this posted in case someone is interested.
