    What up Fellas!

    I’m in need to purchase a new Carburetor for my 67. I have a 7.6L 462. Has anyone bought a new carb for this motor?

    What kind of alterations did you have to do for the install?

    I’m with Chris, Edlelbrock 1411 is what I would run.  It’s basically an updated version of the factory Carter AFB.

    Resistance is Futile.

    Thanks for the help Chris!

    Did you get it installed? Did you have to modify anything?

    I’m doing it today and I’ll keep you posted. The only significant thing I’ve found thus far is running a 12 volt source to the carb… It’s a pretty simple changes but makes a huge difference, from performance to trouble shooting… I’ll post a pic when complete.

    I bought the Edelbrock 1411 and installed yesterday. Really, the only mod we had to do was change the throttle linkage and return springs.

    Runs great!

    Ok so I took the time and knocked out the linkage setup today. After much deliberation and trial with error I got it to work flawlessly. I went an bought the extra linkage made for the ford kick down linkage, (useless)! The carb comes with all you need minus a small cotter pin. See pics I post in a few…

    Removal is very typical, new carb goes right in place new gasket and all. I took off the springs connecting the kick down to the carb plate. Before putting the new carb on, I used the supplied block off nut on the bottom of the carb where the old overflow (??? ) return is… I plugged off the front 2 vaccume lines. Put that new guy on and got started on the linkage. So for the kick down I tapped and drilled for a cotter pin on the end of the linkage attached to the carb side. The original clip I cut oh the end which connected to the rod arm. I Set in the kick down in the clip and the throttle linkage and set the pin. When I started the car it idled at about 2000 rpm, I looked and the idle screw wasn’t even close so adjusting that was pointless. I disconnected the throttle linkage and (see pics ) set the linkage arm back one ball from the stock position.  Once this was done it rand like a charm, no sputter, no popping, no hesitation. This was literally right out of the box, purred like a kitten… Lol

    ill attract pics but I have to figure how to upload from my phone. Here are the before pics. I hope I helped at least one person with this.. Enjoy!
