Idle adjustment screw.
« on: February 14, 2013, 03:25:42 PM »
1972 Wagon, 2000cc, 2V.   I had a rebuilt carb installed and just now found out that the "idle adjustment screw" is missing.
It goes into the idle cam.  There is also a little spring that keeps it from turning once adjusted.  (missing also.)

Does anyone know what the size, thread etc. for this screw is??  Other option is to see of a carb. rebuilder would have one.  Anyone?  Bueller? Thanks guys, jt

John,
If you are talking about the screw that sits against the throttle lever to adjust idle speed, I have one with the spring that is on a busted carb that came off of my '73.  If you can send a picture of where it goes, I can see if it is in the  spot I am thinking.  If you can't send a picture and think it is the one you need, let me know.  My e-mail is Villella@fordpinto.com  I can send what I have to you at no charge.  On another note, maybe you can answer a question I have.  I just bought a 4 barrel intake that has been modified so you cannot run the heater hose through it.  Do you know of anyway I can reroute the hose coming from the heater core back into the engine without going through the intake?  Any info would help.
 
Thanks.

Yes, that is the screw and spring that I need.  My address is John Turner, 76 Bogel Road, East Haddam, CT.  06423, include your return address in the envelope when you send it to me and I'll drop $5 in the mail to you for your trouble.  On the heater rerout, If it were me, I'd skip the intake manifold altogether, get a premeasured fresh piece of heater hose and hook it in to the sources on the heater core and then the block.  I think that the only reason it connects to the carburetor in the first place is to actuate the automatic choke via the water temperature.  (kind of a low tech approach.)  Good Luck and Thanks a ton for sending the screw and spring to me.  jt
