    Can anyone tell me if Ford used a Holley 94 carb stamped ECG on one side and script Ford on the other on a 239 Y Block in 1954? My research points me to '55 for the first appearance of the ECG. Is this original or a replacement?

    I thought the power train for my truck was pretty original but the more I poke around and learn, the more it looks like decades of pricing stuff together.

    Thanks

    Your info seems correct, here are the 54-57 Carb applications.

    Thanks!

    Of course, this adds to the questions. All the designations have a 4th letter after a dash... ECG-M, for example. Mine is just ECG. Are there more casting marks somewhere I'm not seeing?

    I've also heard that back in the day, at the end of a reduction year they might start using some next years parts. Could be that this is what happened here?

    Sorry guys, I just realized I've left some critical info off this post... Trying to id and check the originality of the carb in my '54 F100 w/ 239 Y Block. The truck has had some tinkering done, but nothing crazy. The rear end was swapped at one point but gears feel like OEM. That type of stuff. Repairs... I'm trying to track what is original to the truck and what has been swapped out over time.

    Look on the bump above the main jets for a stamping. otherwise there were tags as far as I know. Some expert may have more.
