Ford 600 Carb advice

Tennessee Ford 600

Bought a 1955 600 that was redone 5 or so years ago.

The carb had obviously been leaking as the paint on the oil filter below the carb was damaged. I pulled the carb apart to check the viton needle and seat, but found a soldered float. The carb is obviously not orginal but was pretty clean inside. I ordered a rebuilt kit and a float. So do I replace the carb or run this ebay special? If I replace it, with what?
Also there was no sediment bowl. Should I install one or is it better to install an in line filter?

Thanks for the help or advice.

Thank you for the reply.

The solder was a patch job and actually had a chunk inside the float rattling around. The fuel seemed to be coming out the choke shaft.

Thanks for the replies.

I tried to post pics but not able. I get restricted "words" message.

The first thing I did was get a manual and start reading this forum.

The carb is not the original and not the right #. It is a TSX428 with fuel ports facing both east and west and not just one north. I think that is why the sediment bowl is not there as there isn't enough room between carb and block to thread it in on that side of carb.

The fuel seemed to be running out backside through choke shaft.

The float had a solder patch on it and actually had a chunk of solder rattling around in it so I was thinking the problem was a stuck or sunk float.

"The carb had obviously been leaking as the paint on the oil filter below the carb was damaged". Well, not necessarily. You or the PO could have had a totally unrelated problem. If a motor with an updraft carb doesn't start in 5 seconds of cranking, and the button is released, two ounces of gas that is suspended in the air is coming back down and will slowly drip out the bottom of the air inlet. The previous owner may have had a poor starting episode just before you bought it.

FORD designed all major components to be rebuilt over and over and should be your first choice when doing maintenance. The OEM Marvel/Schebler carb for your 600 should be Model TSX-580. "...but found a soldered float..." -what's the matter with that? The float is made of brass. It has to be soldered. OEM's and new aftermarket ones are made like that. NOT a problem. Leaking usually is caused from the fuel line and Valve. The valve has a rubber seal on it and wears out. The Valve Stem is the only wear part. Boogered up threads on the unit and/or line fittings will cause leaking as well. Fuel and brake lines use a special thread - 7/16-24 UNS and if cross-threaded or altered incorrectly will render them junk and useless. Get the Essential Manual -OEM Owner's/I&T FO-20, and 53-59 MPC. If you have the OEM M/S carb, rebuild it or send it to me -my email is open.

If you had links to external websites, they may not be allowed.

It could also be due to you being a new user, but I more likely a word/link.

Thanks for reply.

I tried to add pics but got this message. File size was small.

Welcome to the forum!

If a rebuild kit and float fixes it, and it works, run what you got.

If you have to replace it, I would get an original Marvel Schebler and rebuild it.

As far as the filter, I would use a sediment bowl myself. Our hosts sell them.

If you use an inline, I would suggest a metal one with the hoses tucked in tight.
