1959 putting original carb back on

Post by Jamisonashbu »

I’m reinstalling the original carb. The Holley Carb that’s on it has a pipe from the condenser to the carb. Is that the choke tube?

This tube has a slide on end whereas on the original Ford carb it has a screw on end.

I am new to this. Me and my wife wanted to try our hand at restoring a car.

Wondering if when they replaced the original carb they had to replace the fuel pump, distributor and maybe other things to match the new carb?
