    Can anyone help identify this carb from my 67? The VIN says it's a 170 motor. The carb doesnt have any manufacturers name on it but my internet searches for types/brands used doesnt seem to show any photos of this particular model. Is it original ford?

    Thanks

    My van has a similar carb that has "Holley" cast into it. Mine is a manual choke and yours has some different things, but the arm that operates the accelerator pump is unmistakable. It could be some sort of replacement carb for the original Autolite.

    Thanks Otto. I saw a Holley that looked similar but had the casting so i assumed this was not a real "holley" There was another carb new in the box that came with the van but I think it's a cheap knock off so Im going to rebuild this one and keep using it. It works OK but the van has to warm up for a long time or it stalls.
