Re: 430 Super Marauder

The available reference materials seem to lag behind.

The only true production J code 430 6V car I've ever seen was produced on June 12th.

So the parts would be in production by then.

Assuming it wasn't the first one produced, parts would have pre dated 6/12/58.

Re: Making a 430 from a 383?

Don't know Yes, swap blocks Red or blue, don't know, some later bearings had dual tabs No, cam bosses changed in the blocks Heads and intakes do differ early to late, interchange is possible. Pans will interchange, however, the pre '61's have a shorter sump front to back, better for '57 ford swap No...

Re: 430 Super Marauder

Another bulletin from 3/28/58 describing Carb lever changes.....Except Super Marauder. It was probably covered on 1/2/58 with the Rev A :mrgreen:

Re: 430 Super Marauder

More interesting stuff. As we know service bulletins typically come out after a problem has been identified or has not been covered in the service manual. I thought it would be neat to show a couple of bulletins that mention the Super Marauder, but pre date the complete Super Marauder bulletin of 5/...

Re: 430 Super Marauder

A pic of a poor copy of a poor print. The center carb "Throttle Lever Quadrant". Or plainly the slotted bracket fixed to the center carb lever, where the end carb linkage meets. It was drawn on 6/3/57 with a Rev A on 1/2/58. Interestingly, the ECN (engineering control number) of 19038 and Rev A date...

Re: 430 Super Marauder

The R-1674A Carburetor Outline drawing was originally done on 8/9/57. Rev A on 1/2/58 and a Rev B on 4/29/59. It's been my experience, as well as the Holley employee who had the original drawings, hardware would soon follow. In short order if a majority of the components already existed as these did...

Re: Hose to Air Cleaner

If they don't have it, I used high temp flexible tube from Mcmaster Carr.

Re: 430 Super Marauder

Thanks for the feedback. You are right about finding them out there. I ended up with two systems, one pieced together at great cost. Then I was lucky enough to buy the second nearly complete with the pump found later. The second complete system cost as much as just my first fuel pump asm! Wow , that...

Re: 430 Super Marauder

It's good too see interest in the Super Marauder. When I did my green '58 you show with "Scottie TV" there was virtually no information on line so I had to do my own research as you have with original documents. Most folks said they didn't exist. :roll: You are correct the intakes were black, I left...
