'65 Ranchero coil spring issues

When I replaced the UCAs on my '65 200cid manual no air Ranchero I took the opportunity to perform the Shelby drop as long as I had everything apart but upon reassembly noticed that the front end was way too low: The UCAs were just resting on the rubber snubbers. Bad. So I took everything apart agai...

Yet another disc brake thread: 4-lug retention

I really kind of like my current wheels on my 200 six '65 Ranchero and would like to retain the 4 lug front end but would like to convert economically to disc brakes, so I've been looking at some options like the scarebird conversion: https://scarebird.com/index.php?route=product/product&product...

Re: 200cid carb alternates? D2Pf-EA?

Those Chinese clone YFAs sure do look tempting, but I picked up a used YFA [77 maverick I think] off flea-bay for $20 so here goes nothing! I am taking off the 2v that the previous owner had on the engine, and of course I'm losing the carb adapter plate that goes under it, but now I'm wondering is t...

Re: 200cid carb alternates? D2Pf-EA?

So I picked up an inexpensive YFA off flea-bay, and I already have the DuraSpark II setup ready to go. I'm thinking I switch both at the same time because the vac-0-matic and carb go hand in hand but honestly, there is so much info around here about DuraSpark conversions I can't figure it all out.

Re: 200cid carb alternates? D2Pf-EA?

Howdy Raf: The carb, D2Pf-EA, is likely a Carter YF. they are good carbs but may require some adaptation; linkage, fuel line and may not be compatible with your distributor. What's the problem 1100? Adios, David Mainly, I don't have one! And looking around cores are north of $100 then a rebuild kit...

Howdy again Raf: Man, you're all over this place. No, the YF clones will not be compatible with your Load-o-Matic distributor. The last time I looked for a rebuild kit for an 1100 it was $47. The clone YFs may be a good deal. We have yet to hear of one of ours jumping in and using one. Adios, David...

200cid carb alternates? D2Pf-EA?

The Autolite 1100 seems a little spendy for a little 1v fuel mixer, has anyone had experience with the Maverick carb D2Pf-EA which are cheap on ebay? Or other recommendations? THanks!!
