Thermoquad advice
« on: December 15, 2008, 01:16:50 PM »
I posted a week or so ago about a customer giving me a couple of thermoquad carbs. One was from a 440 and the other was from a 360. I am thinking of putting the one from the 440 on my F250 with a 460. Other than the obvious, rebuild it/adapter etcetera, can you guys think of anything else I might need? The truck is a 4 speed by the way so no kickdown is needed. I know its a Ford but I have seen these off-brand topics get some good advice before.

    If the center plastic body is not warped it will be a bitchin carb. Now with that said certain year were better than others with emission crap. I beleave there were 3 cfm sizes an 815,875,915. The best thing to do now if you have`1 is to look for a cater carb service manual

    The second has a complete model number list that will tell you exactly which carb you have.  A wealth of info in that second site.

    Being off a 440, it should be the 850cfm Thermoquad.  There was also a 1000cfm CS Thermoquad, but i don't think it was ever used on anything like a motorhome.

    850 was the Stock Size Thermoquad for a 360 IIRC.  So it should be fine.
