I pulled an Autolite 4100 that originally came in a 65 Galaxie 500 w/352 if the info is correct. Currently is has been rebuilt, pulled the primary shaft and butterflies from my 2100 to replace the originals, aside from that it is absolutely stock, right down to the jet size.

I've verfied in the past it is a 600 CFM carb, aside from that I know little about it.
Any tips for performance? I've read a little in the archives about manual linkage for the secondaries and something replaced in the primaries for better fuel delivery...

Block the power valve with a Holley plug and increase the front jets about 20% for starters.

Don't block the power valve if it's a daily driver. INstall a Holley 5.5 or 4.5.

ok, I've got a few Holley power valves laying around, how can I identify them?

I have an idea, but what exactly does the power valve do?
Thanks Alex!

The number is stamped on the side of Holley power valves.
The powervalve keeps the engine lean in part throttle and at idle.
