Thanks again everyone.
Thanks guys. This happens after warm up as well. Plugs are fouled.
It's a mild 350 in a tri-five that spits black fluid out both exhaust pipes. No smoke. It seems to occur even at idle. Carb is a Holley. Possibly...
Thanks. Danchuk was great, gave me the mfr who gave me a diagnostic procedure. Also offered to rebuild the unit if necessary. Excellent service....
I believe it is a Danchuk supplied unit. Very good support. They gave me the mfrs contact. I'll try that first. Thanks to all.
Thanks to all. I'll post a pic later today.
Thanks. This is an aftermarket electric unit. Original mechanism as far as I can tell.
Winshield wipers won't shut off and won't return to the stopped position. New switch didn't help. Any ideas?
Where's the parking. I'm trying to get over for Friday night.
See you next week....T
Tragic, we can feel your pain. Our prayers are with you now......Bumps
I'll be doing with Flatjack. He was talking about it all day. Looks like a great tour....can't wait....Bumps
I had the same problem even with an electric fuel pump. Wrapping the fuel line with an insulation wrap fixed it. Good luck.
Here's my '56. It was done by Jim Barnett of Deltona, Fl. I've done some cleanup, mostly engine setup, except I removed the side pipes because I...
Best of luck. I have an original '58 392 waiting for a chassis. Will follow your progress.
Thanks. That's nice looking product. I'm going to look at it. Bumps.
I chose the 3x2 Rochester for a late 50's/early 60's look. The 283 is fine but you could have better driving with more current carbs. More to go...
Thanks Chubbie. I think I'll give them a try. The 283 is in a '32 and I don't use the chokes at all so it should be a little easier. I'm from...
Has anyone used the new 2 bbl Rochester kits from Speedway? How was the quality and how did they work. Note: I have a 283 Chev with 3x2 supposedly...
We're in Florida. Good weather but pretty lousy car shows. A big show here is 100 cars!! Stay put if the economy supports you. We have...
What some great memory joggers! Went to my first drags in Tennessee in 1961. It was the classic, Ford against Chevy. Chevy won........made my...
Thanks to all you guys. You can probably tell I'm just getting the hang of this message business........thanks again.
Thanks for the good insight Jan..........Bumps
Has anyone installed a 392 or 426 Hemi in a 1950 Plymouth? Possible? Reasonable? or Forget it. Appreciate your comments.
To GMC Bubba and Tom Culbertson, thanks for your great hospitality and the chance to meet all of you. It was our 1st year attending and we'll be...
