Hi all,

I have been given a 4100 autolite carb as a present.
I would like to use it on my 1970 mustang with the 351 c engine.
I am told that I need the 1/4 inch carb spacer with the pcv in the back.
I have tried to purchase this from pony carbs but they do not have them.
Does anyone know if I really need this and it so, where I might purchase it?

Thanks in advance.

Andy

Virginia Mustang has it, but it's $46.95. which is the kind of price that would send me out to some bone yards. Check some local mustang shops, junkyards or your local mustang club. I'm sure it can be found for less and cleaned up.

Hi torquewrench,

Thanks for the heads up.
I think I might be cruising the bone yards this weekend

If you don't have any luck at the boneyards, you might want to try EBAY. They usually go for about $5 there

I sort of asked the same question a few days ago and the reponse I got from camachinist was to purchase a phenolic spacer from Summit or Jegs. They go for about $23. The phenolic spacers willl keep the carb cooler. The only drawback is there is no opening for the pcv hose to be attached. It was recommended for a street driven car to have the pcv hose attached. You can drill a hole in the phenolic spacer and attach a fitting to attach the pcv hose to. I plan on going this route and will let you know how it turns out. If you want to check out the original post do a search for carb spacer.

Hi Dave,

Thanks for the info.
I'll probably go that route as well.
