    Can Anyone Identify these vitage holley carbs and Nicson dual carb manifold of a old ford 6 cylinder motor? Any value here?

    ID the motor too? Junk metal scarp guy is taking the motor in two days if not worth anything. Was a project motor for a Woodill car we think

    Ford 215. Made 52-53. The exhaust manifold is pretty hard to find in one piece.
    Intake should fit a 223 also.

    The carbs are Holley, model 1904's, with the "Vis-A-Bowl" glass float bowl. Used (roughly) from 1954 to 1962, on Ford inline 6's. There is a narrow demand for them.

    Is that also a transmission adapter in the last photo? The early OHV 6 cylinder doesn’t share a bell housing bolt pattern with anything else so it could be a low demand item, but if it is an adapter you may want to save it.

    Got the same setup for sale over here in the UK but on Offenhauser manifold , that looks like a V8 flathead bellhousing that's the only other that has same bolt pattern as 215 and 223 engine

    The engine is either 215 or 223 , if the cylinder head ports are the same size of the intake chances are its a 215 as they look small on the manifold , the 223 has bigger ports on the head , there are a few other differences but I cant think what at the moment

    Better pics of the engine would make for a positive ID. There are a bunch of good parts on that engine....it's worth way more than scrap price parted out.

    I believe the 223 was available mated to a C4 automatic in 1964 only, so a bellhousing does exist for that combo, although it's probably pretty rare.

    The four banger with a Weber in the last post also looks too good to junk.

    What else is in that shop?
     
  13. If you were closer I would come get the whole motor. But don't toss the intake and carbs, my son is putting togeteher a little speedster on an A frame and I gave him the 223 out of my 54 F100 for it. id be interested in it if you want to let it go.

    It's a 215 for sure, note the location of the distributor. Save everything that will unbolt! Most of the parts will work on a 223.
    If you were closer I'd take the whole engine......I only have 5 of those early Ford sixes.
    Guys on the ford-trucks.com site are always looking for parts.

    Will leave the engine to others.

    As to the carburetors:

    Assemble (A) a wire brush, (B) pencil eraser, (C) strong light, (D) strong magnifying glass, and (E) a pair of young eyes.

    Now, orient the carburetors such that the word "Holley" is visible on the bowl. Now, using the wire brush, followed by the pencil eraser, clean the side of the boss that contains the fuel inlet that is facing you. Finally, using the light, glass, and the young eyes, read the identification number from the area you just cleaned.

    Once you have the number, Google is your friend. The number, with application, should be listed on my website.

    Jon.
