    Get some Mother''s Mag polish and get busy on those wheels. If those were shiny, that whole car would look better. BTW, if you don't want them, I'll buy them from you.

    No sweat! ;) Thank me later when you see how great they look. And then you can sell them to me.

    Slot mags rule! One of these days I'll post a pic of Ratchero. Good luck finding some, took me over a year of searching.

    I've been reading this thread regarding all the diff carbs on the diff
    engines. I have a 78 Linc 460 in my 78 Ranchero and I have to smog
    it. It's got the place to hook up the vapor hose on top of it. Is
    this a 4300D or a 4350 series? I usually go the easy way and put a
    Holley on it but I need it to pass smog.
    Thanks, Ron

    The stock carburetor for that specific engine is a 4350.

    Thanks for the info. I bought a rebuilt one from NAPA 4 or 5 yrs ago.
    It was never to good. Started leaking out the little casting plug on
    the bottom first. Now needs acc pump. Thought I might look for another.I paid about $350 back then
    Thanks again

    Sorry to read you're having an issue - I just gave away an official Ford remanufactured 4350 for a 460 that I was going to adapt to one of my 351s (turned out I was able to fix the stripped jet threads and didn't need it). Try Rock Auto - they list some oddball carbs and seem to be as reasonable as most parts places.

    How much is a core 4300d and corresponding manifold worth? It would be from a 1972.
