Just an update on this "4160 Float Bowl" change. Never got a answer to my e-mail from Holley so I called them direct. Rep said they didn't manufacture that type of bowl anymore but the bowl with-out the vent would work just fine. He gave me the names and numbers of two companies that may have that bowl, mainly re-builders and suppliers of vintage carbs. Anyways, I plugged that hot slot and installed the new bowl(with-out the vent). Works fine so I'll go with it until I find an original. Oh yea, on the plus side, as "tbarb" pointed out above, I don't smell as much gas vapor in the garage on shut down as with the old vented bowl.

I need a rear float bowl for the Holly List 3605.
The float adjustment threads are stripped and can't adjust the float level.
Any thoughts?
Thanks

Why replace the bowl when the adjuster is less than $10.

Looks like a thread insert can be done by a few carburetor restore shops. That is the way I am going.
thanks again

BTW, I should have said the bowl had the stripped thread - thus a bowl problem, not the adjuster problem.

I had the same problem needed a front bowl for my 67, 3811. Back ordered, unavailable couldn't find a used bowl anywhere

Then with a little research I found that a 1966 Dodge/ Plymouth with a 440 used a Holley carb with the exact same bowl , same Holley casting number ,same vent linkage, the only difference I could find was the rubber stopper was shaped a little different than the original. I bought 2 parts carbs off Ebay for $30. and now I have a spare bowl [not for sale]
Holley list 3667
