Hello to all decide to join up with you guys and girls today, I have a 1965 a code automatic July 19 build ,what on the carburetor code designates application, from what I have found it could be one of four, C5ZF-D, C5ZF-F, C5ZF-K or C5ZF-M, I’ve checked websites been on the internet really haven’t had any success, l just recently picked up a C5ZF-F knowing that if it wasn’t correct for the application it would be period correct or a candidate for a swap, let me know if there are any text articles or books on this matter or if some could shed some light on this. Thanks Gary

C5ZF-F is for a 1965 289 (non-K code) with PCV and automatic transmission. Applicable models were Fairlane/Torino, Comet/Cyclone, Mustang, and Ranchero (not Falcon).

That’s good to hear that this carburetor is correct for this application, my next question is where did you reference this information from, or is there a text or manual for this, thanks for getting back on the question gary

This info comes from Bob Mannel’s small block Ford book - the Bible for all things small block Ford from 1962 - 1970.

The factory shop manual also lists the various stamping and application data. Also the Ford Master Parts catalog.

Gary,
If you have the 1965 Ford Shop Manual and Bob Mannel’s book, I would think that is a pretty comprehensive library for any 1965 Mustang’s 289.

For a July 19th, 1965 schedule build the C5ZF-D is the concours correct model. The last known run of Autolite 4100 C5ZF-F carbs were assembled 5th week of March '65 (5CE), with the C5ZF-D being used for remainder of '65 production (V8 C-code, A-code with A/T). last known C5ZF-M and C5ZF-K were assembled in January '65 and December '65, respectively. Bob Mannel's book is an amazing reference, however does not get this in depth on application to what I am telling you, nor does the Ford Shop Manual.
