9144S - 4.9 auto
9143S - 4.9 manual
9142S - 5.8 auto
9141S - 5.8 manual
9091S - 4.9 manual

9071S - 5.8 manual
9085S - 5.8 auto
Some XC numbers differ depending on where you get your info from.
Chrysler also used Thermoquads so if its not one of the above numbers it may be a Chrysler one.
There was also 2 different sizes for the primary throttle bore. 1 3/8 inch and 1 1/2 inch. The falcon's only got the 1 3/8 inch. If you have one of the "bigger" 1 1/2 throttle bore carbies, hang on to it.

The two so far i cant id are #9533s and #9333s.
I have found a website that states the #9333s is off XE4.9 Auto whether this is correct or not?
F100 Maybe? Its not that important but i record all numbers when i strip them down and these two carbs are the only two that have had the #370 squirters! All others for autos are #369 and manuals are #374.

More important is the number on the metering rods. Have you recorded these?

Motor craft 78DA AA 2D26
both had metering rods #2354 These are the richest rods i have come across so far. 70-55-33

Good to see someone else who knows their way around a Thermoquad.

You will also note the absence of the 2174 rod which appears to be the most common?I would say this listing is for only one model year possibly? 76DA TAGS come on everything and anything! e.g. 76DA KF is xd 302 manual,so is T6DA KC? 76DA ND is XD 351 Auto. There seems to be almost no consistency with numbering what so ever?
Out of interest the rods i have are
#1998 * 1 pair 70-57-40 (Came out of carb 9144s 4.9 auto)
#2173 * 1 pair 72-57-40 (Came out of carb 9142s 5.8 auto) Which is bolted to my genuine/origional jan/1979 p6 town car xc era?!
#2174 * 7 pairs 70-55-38
#2354 * 3 pairs 70-55-33

The 2174 are .002" smaller on all steps compared to the 2173 which is supposed to be fitted to the majority of vehicles by the look of it ? A common mod back in the day maybe?
Yes i do like the tq . Rebiuld em drill the sec jets, set airdoor properly and away you go!

Its getting harder to find good core stock of these carbs now, anyone have any to give to a good home?!
Good carbs if you spend time setting them up properly. I used to do a lot on them years ago when time was all i could afford on my own stuff to make it go better, once I got money I went to Holley carbs for ease of parts etc and because thats what customers wanted but at the end of the day in most cases I cant say that the holley is any better when compared to a well set TQ. TQ's are a bit of an ugly duckling , I think thats why most go for the holley stuff, nothing a big air filter cant fix!

I know this is an old thread but if anyone is still interested the 9333s does indeed come of the F100. I just bought one from a gentleman doing up an F100 who wants to put a Holley on it. Interestingly the 2354 metering rods referred to above came out of this carburettor and as noted the power step is .005" smaller in diameter than the 2174 so I'll be putting those metering rods back in to my interceptor to see how they go. Cheers from a Newbie.
