Ford Carburetor Identification

Ford, Motorcraft, Autolite Carbs

The Carburetor Doctor has a full line of Ford carburetor rebuild kits, floats, choke thermostats, parts and service manuals for 1, 2 and 4 barrels from 1957 onward.

Ford began producing their own carburetors in 1957 with the 2100 and 4100 models. The 4100 is the 4 barrel version of the 2100. The first generation 2100 and 4100 were unique and used a different accelerator pump than the 1958 and up models. We have correct kits for both of these: kit CK414 for the first-gen 2100 and CK415 for the first-gen 4100 ("Aardvaark'). Revised model 4100 4 barrels ("Shoebox") were produced until 1968 and the 2100 until the mid-70s. The 2150, which used an externally mounted choke pull off on the passenger side was produced until 1986.

Starting in 1967, Ford made the 4300 series and shortly after the 4350. These were produced until 1978. The 4350 can be distinguished by the air valve above the secondary venturi. In 4300s, there is a velocity valve below the venturi cluster.

The 1100 was a small 1 barrel carburetor produced from 1963-1969 and is used on many 6 cylinder engines in Mustangs, F100s and so on. The 1250 is a similar model made by Ford of Sweden and was used on a few 4 cylinder cars in the early 70s and on many 4 cylinder industrial engines, including Bombardier snow machines.

Early on the Ford carburetors were sold under the Autolite name; in the 70s and 80s they were referred to as Motorcraft.
