Hello all and thank you all for any info because I can not find any for my brothers 170 engine standard transmission.

I was needed help in trying to see if this engine was a 1100 autolite or a 1904 Holley or 1940 carb?

Please let me know because "Turk" (for Turquoise color) is down.

I probably need more info to give you, yes???

Welcome to the FFO!

What model year is the E100?

Autolite 1100
The Autolite 1100 one-barrel carburetor was offered on the 170 and 200ci sixes from '63-'69, in three venturi sizes - 1.00-, 1.10-, and 1.20-inches.

Holley 1904 carburetor.
The Holley carburetor model 1904 is used on Ford standard and automatic transmission six cylinder passenger cars and six cylinder trucks beginning with the 1952 model year

The Holley 1940, 1945 and 6145 carburetor are 1 barrel downdraft carburetors used as a replacement carburetor on Ford 6 cyl vehicles. The 1940 was also used on many industrial applications.

The Autolite 1100 would be what the vehicle was built with off the assembly line.

Thank you all for your great info! I was just wondering how I could tell which venturi size I need because the carb on "Turk" now is a rebuilt one and to me it has never run right. It is an 1100 rebuilt carb with double accelerator pumps.

The base may be stamped if there is no tag. Vneturi sizes ar:
C3DF-9510-A, B 1 1/64"
C3DF-9510-A, B 1 7/64"
C3AF-9510-A, B 1 13/16"
C3AF-9510-C, D 1 7/64"
C3TF-9510-E 1 13/64"

Some times the side of the carb will be cast with 1 or 1.1 or 1.2

You state it does not run right. When? Hot cold, idle, high speed, accelerating? or

I think the correct carb for the 170 is
C3DF-9510-A 170 manual transmission
C3DF-9510-B 170 automatic transmission

And I believe the 1.10 venturi size was used from 1968 and later.
Making the earlier ones 1.00 venturi size and some of those needed spark control valve to run correctly.
