Very interested in the combo, can you give any info on the carb (new or needs work).I didn't see a price pm me if needed.
$350.00 Plus Shipping for Both. From what I am told the Carb. is some kind of ProComp clone and I can't find anything on the net about it yet. The guy I got it from said it ran very well on a 466 Ford Jet Boat. I have not pulled it apart yet to inspect the inside but, the accelarater pumps are still soft. I may get to take it apart in a couple of days as I want to check out the insides also.

850 Cfm DP Clone

You peaked my curiosity so I had to go open it up. The float bowls came off without tearing the gaskets. I tried on the metering blocks but, they are tight and I did not want to destroy the gaskets on them. Note both the metering blocks are the Blue Holley Style as well as the float bowl gaskets. I will need to get out some Holley gaskets and see how they match up as soon as I can. The carbs looks almost new on the inside and has brass floats with orange accelerator pump umbrellas. It has a soft (rubber not hard from sitting without fuel after being run and left dry) power valve in the primary metering block and a block off in the rear block where a PV would go. It has 4 corner idle circuits also. It also has 8 removable air bleeds on the main body on top. It has larger secondary main jets then the primaries as would be expected with no rear PV so it would be jetted square under full load. I will get detailed pics of it while it is apart and also try as many Holley gaskets, jets, screws, and other parts on it as I can to check interchange for you, so hang tight. If my 429 was going right now I would even slap it on and run it for you but, that is at least two weeks away. Might have to go borrow someone's car/truck and give it a test.:|

Needs to go, going dual quads and have to finance them. Make me a reasonable offer. This carb. is like new inside and out and looks very well made.
