Thanks for update/news car has a Carter - my apologies, as I said been too busy, and I way too often nowadays not even open, let alone read, the posts/replies, too.
Re Holley vs Carters
A friend was talked into replacing his original Carter with a Holley on his mild '66 383 - in the name of performance, but I not so sure it clever, as the Carter a good carb, plus has less rubberware etc for modern fuels - or long standing unused - to mess up?
Ford fitted traditional/1st modern 4bbl Holley to THunderbirds in 1957 - prior to that '56 had weird what known as 'teapot' version - so called I think cause of it's narrow raised look - my '57 (luckily) has modern type, and I know nothing about 'teapot' ones. Carters are good carbs, preferred on mid/late 50s Cadillacs over the Rochester, which most say used more gas on same car/motor compared to the Carter. But later versions of Rochester 4bbl are I think a pretty good carb, when vac secondaries set right.

John, I appreciate your response although I do not know that much about Holleys. As John says, mine is a Carter Aluminum Four Barrel.
Thanks for the help!
