I just popped the top off the carb and removed the boost venturi to get
at the area around the throttle plates. The barrel that has the
designated EGR port has a perforation just above the closed throttle
plate just as I expected. When I attach a hose to the designated EGR
port I can blow air through the perforation. When I plug up the
perforation inside the venturi with my finger, the air flow stops. This
is the case with the other barrel that has the designated spark vacuum
port. The only difference between the two seems to be the relative size
of the venturi perforations, the EGR side being slightly smaller and the
height relative to the closed throttle plate.
three hours later... I just got back from ripping the carb out of its
moorings and teraing it down and comparing it with the old original.
Same body - different porting. I cut a new slot for the EGR port and
widened the holes that feed the canister purge line into the the venturi
just above the throttle plates, both mods to conform to the original.
The new carb also differed from the original through a hole in the
gasket that connects the throttle body to the main body. This hole in
the gasket on the new carb connected the EGR hole in the throttle body
just above the throttle plate in one barrel to a hole in the base of the
venturi. The original carb did not have this hole in the gasket or the
hole in the base of the venturi, so I flipped the gasket to put the hole
on the other side where nothing is happening and the hole is not
connecting anything to anything.
I am about to go out now and take it for a test drive to see what
happens after it warms up and the EGR circuit kicks in. I have a vacuum
meter teed into the vacuum line to the EGR valve so I should be able to
see if the mod works like the original. If not, I will negate that
particular mod in some fashion and go back to running the EGR valve from
the park vacuum port, which is what got me passed smog.
It's a frikken obsession, but I bought this truck new and I refuse to
let it die for want of a replacement mixture control solenoid.
Way to stand behind your products.
When we mod our Jeeps to take out the feedback carb, we can run the
ignition module or even a replacement stand alone distributor or
ignition replacement without the rest of the smog computer controls.
The reason is or 'ford' emissions control box goes into 'limp home' mode
basically clamping down on the timing advance.
When we wire our ignition control modules directly to the distributor in
whatever form, we bypass this, our timing jumps about 15 deg and has to
be reset and we get a sweet 'seat of the pants' 25% boost in power.
We can have 'fun' with the new vacuum line layouts as well.

'New' frame in the works for '08. Some Canadian Bush Trip and Build
Good point, Mike. There is a 'open loop' mode that this computer may
default to if it senses a value outside of its programmed parameters.
This computer controls spark advance timing and fuel mixture, but now
that the carb no longer has a mixture control solenoid, that aspect of
control is gone and only the spark timing is left.
Your post raises an important point for me. I have the code reader for
this beast. It's almost prehistoric but it works great. I got it used
on eBay because good luck trying to find one new. When I had the old
original feedback carb installed, the mixture control solenoid would get
stuck. At one point, I screwed down the allen screw on top of the
solenoid to close the auxiliary main jet and the auxiliary air bleed in
an attempt to convert the feedback carb into a convention carb. Even
with the solenoid modified so that the electrical pulses to it were
doing nothing, the computer failed to set any codes. I would have
expected a code set for the the O2 sensor perhaps because it was no
longer controlling the fuel mix, but the computer seemed not to mind.
When I disconnected the wires to the feedback solenoid, however the
computer set a code for it.
Getting back to the 'limp-home mode' question. The only thing that the
computer now controls is the spark advance. The service manual spells
out the procedure for testing the spark advance at 2000rpm. After setup,
it says that I should be reading 38 degrees plus or minus 4. The only
trouble is, how will I read 38 degrees I don't have a magnetic timing
unit, which I assume will allow one to read that far off the scale used
with a timing light, which only goes plus and minus 10 degrees from TDC.
I guess I can wire the failed solenoid the computer. The windings are
still good. This way the computer will still read it as working and, if
the computer is working okay, the advance timing should working okay. If
I read the service manual correctly, there are only two spark advance
curves, one for cold and one for warmed up. I had a problem with the
coolant temperature sensor recently that caused the vehicle to only
operate in cold mode which was too retarded. Gas mileage sucked until I
discovered the problem. If there are only two modes I should be able to
tell if the computer is ignoring the absence of the mixture solenoid and
continuing to use the warmed up spark advance curve.
How does the situation you are describing dealing with spark advance? Is
this controlled by the 'ignition control modules' you mentioned?
Sounds like a real party :-)

The newer timing lights have a digital display that gives the advance also
Yes, you can get stand alone distributors and/or ignition modules to put
in so your timing works like the pre-computer engine does.
Someone on AADT should know what ones plug in or what junkyard swaps are
I have the PCV and canister (gas tank and carb float vent) hooked up,
the EGR, the distributor advance and the air filter flaps all properly
plumbed for a manual tune. I am set up to pass emissions with my
feedback carb manually set.

Hand turn the engine until the #1 TDC timing mark on the balancer is
aligned with the minus 10 mark on the front cover scale. Make a mark
(sharpie) on the balancer adjacent to the plus 10 timing mark on the
front cover scale.
Hand turn the engine again until your new balancer mark aligns with the
minus 10 mark on the front cover timing scale. Make another new mark
(sharpie) on the balancer adjacent to the plus 10 mark on the front
cover scale. Take a knife edged file and make this last mark more
You've just marked your balancer 40 degrees advanced from the TDC mark.
The 2 degrees error you can work out easy enough.
