Holley carb gurus - need some parts advice

I bought a Holley 3310 to use while my 4053 carb is being restored. My Z actually idles with this carb so I can hardly wait to get my 4053 back. But I need a few parts. What fuel inlet filters does this carb use? Also can I get replacement inlet fittings to fit my stock DZ fuel lines? The ones in this 3310 use a larger fitting size. Thanks.

Re: Holley carb gurus - need some parts advice

Gary,
3310's do not have an inlet filter, at least I have never seen one and I have probably done at least a hundred of those carbs. I am not sure what size your oem line end is, but there are several different inlet "nuts" available that have different internal threads.
Hope this helps,

Yes it does. I looks like there should be filters. Thanks.

Re: Holley carb gurus - need some parts advice

The factory ones used filters. They looked kinda like a Qjet filter but were bronze. I have no clue where you can get any.

Re: Holley carb gurus - need some parts advice

Carbs with center hung fuel bowls use a spring loaded bronze filter at the inlet. If the 3310 doesn't have a secondary metering block, your stock fuel line will be too long. Since it is for temporary use, I would get one of the Holley dual feed lines and hook it up with rubber hose instead of bending the original lines to fit.

Gary;
You are right - it probably had filters...
The original Factory Part #3878261EH List-3310's and the over the counter Holley 3310-1's were 4150 type carbs with Center-Pivot floats and had a 7/8-20 Inlet fitting and a filter behind it. Sort of like a Rochester as 'Oger' said - matter of fact the filters and springs will interchange...
The later (3310-2~?*) over the counter units were a 4160 type that used a rear metering plate v.s. the metering block with servicable jets. They have a smaller 9/16-24 or 5/8-18 size Inlet thread size. These were also down-rated to 750cfm v.s. 780cfm for the earlier version.
* there must be at least 8 versions so far
About the only parts the 4150 and 4160 versions of this carb. tend to have in common is the '134' Main Metering Block.

You can still get a kit from Holley to replace the filters and the springs.
It is part #162-500. It includes both front and rear filters, 2 springs and all the necessary gaskets for under the Inlet fittings.
The 7/8-20 Inlet Fittings are also available from Holley still. Part #26-26 will get you the correct fitting to adapt the standard 5/8 fuel line fitting to the inlet filter retainer.
There are also sizes for all the common 1/4, 3/8" & etc. inlet lines - ask the rep to explain them if you need a different size.

As for a fuel line - Summit sells the "Sergi" line of fuel inlets for Holleys and they have an 'adjustable' one! Part number from Summit is #G3121 and they are under $50.
Summit probably has the fuel filter pack in stock also - although, like lots of other parts, they don't list it in their cat.

Hope some of this helps;
John

Re: Holley carb gurus - need some parts advice

Thanks guys. I actually found everything here in town today! This carb is the 4150 style and will use the stock DZ fuel lines.
