I share some pictures of my 6 cylinders in line 4.6 liters engine (282 cubic inches) with dual throat carburetor, currently deep repair.

What amazes me is how rust free the engine bay is.  We are so used to seeing rust up North.

Although it was left abandoned for 10 years, thankfully stayed parked in a place where there was not much wet and homeless under full sun, the more l inner part of the board is the most affected but soon repair all those parts.

A couple of questions.  Is the carburetor the one from the factory or was it replaced with something else?  And, was the spark coil mounted on the firewall instead of on the engine block like North American AMC cars?

The coil if it is mounted on the boom, only in the pictures is recharged aside to give me room to continue dismantling the engine, the carburetor is original of agency.

That is what I was thinking.  Would be interesting to know if VAM installed MC carbs instead of Carter.

yeah, and exactly what model of Motorcraft - If it just happens to be a 2150, that totally tells me where 'Gronk' got his idea from...

Curiosity got to me regarding this carb.  Apparently it is an Autolite/Holley carb used on some Fords (mainly trucks), IHC, earlier Mopar tripower engines and some earlier North American AMC's.  Perhaps VAM liked it and continued using it.  It is a 500 CFM carb.  I think the BBD is around 365 cfm.

That's interesting, because I'm wondering if the 2300 would be a much better fit for my eagle, instead of the 2150?

Hey Doug, How common is the 2300?   Is the 2150 a more common, and cheaper carb, and the 2300 harder to get, and more expensive, or they both pretty common? 

I'm just wondering how the 2300 would perform on my eagle.  Or is it just a matter that I've got my 2150 too lean?
