Did Autolite make the 4100 in 1964?

The tag evidently reads C4AF-R. Can anyone identify this carb?

I also found a Motorcraft C6SF-A carb. It looks like a 4100 and has a 1.08 venturi. Is it a replacement 4100? Can I put a 4100 kit into it?

The build date on my car is Sept 8th 1964 and the Autolite 4100 has a C4 code on it..So I am sure they made the 4100 in 64..it came in 2 versions the 1.08 for the A-Code and the 1.12 for the K-Code. I am sure others can give more details.

Yes they did make it in '64. The 4100 is a very good carb. The other one is a '66. Sorry I can't identify them for you, I don't have my interchange book handy. There are two sizes of 4100's a 480 cfm used on 289s and a larger 600 cfm used on 390's. I just happen to have a 65, 600 cfm off a 390 Tbird, hear that whizco?

4100's were discussed earlier today on the forum. Hope I've helped.

I'm sold on my 4100 1.08. Installed it on my 69 SR with a stock 302 with a 68 J code 4v manifold. Ran great. I'll be re-installing after the major rebuild.

A deal that sounds too good to be true usually is.

From the info I've got it looks like the C4AF-R was used on a '64 Full Size Ford with 352 c.i.d. engine and automatic tranny. Looks like the C6SF-A was used on a '66 Thunderbird with a 390 or 428 and auto. I'm quoting the Ford Carburetor Guide published by Pony Carbs. The same kit is used for a lot of the various 4100 carbs. You should be able to get the correct one with the model nos. you have. Beware that not all kit brands are alike. Tthe KEM brand I once used did not have the rear diaphram in it.

Actually the old 4100 made its debut I believe back in the late 50's, I have seen a few of the early numbered ones-there bodies are a little different.Have owned a couple with C2 part numberes.One thing to remember is that the 1.12 are generally found on mostly big blocks (exception being as mentioned the HIPO's), the 1.08's were the ones generally used on the smallblocks and were the 480 cfm carbs.I have seen a quite a few of those C6SF carbs around, they seem to be one the exceptions to the 1.08 being used on big blocks, I guess the T birds didn't need the performance.
