Wildwood suggested a 3/4 bore master....got one ordered for monday.
Sent from my SM-G960W using The H.A.M.B. mobile app
I added the check valve hoping to improve things, but it made no difference.
The booster is functioning, and the rod is adjusted properly.
I could use a little input....
I have a 56 T bird that I converted to disc/ drum brakes with Wildwood calipers. It has a 7 inch booster...
Ok...things changed!....forgot to plug off one vac port....
Set the mixture screws....runs amazing and has 19 in of vacuum!
It's like a whole...
Ok...here's what I got....
Has new msd wires
10 deg initial timing, 31 deg advance at 2700 rpm
Checked the rocker adjustment...all set correctly....
I am back on this one today...
You guys have given me a lot of good ideas, and I appreciate that!
The engine is a fresh build with about 30 miles...
It's been a while.....
Anyways...I started a new job, and am taking over the last guys work.
It's a 64 belair with a rebuilt 283...mostly stock...
I'll see you there, Al!
Sorry I haven't checked in in a while, but I took a year off from building my truck to take care of other business and house issues.
That's lookin' pretty sweet, Al!
We wish your wife all the best, from all of us.
What he said.
It only locks up at low speed.(trash!)
My 1925 Chevy truck build.
My truck started off as a car....more correctly, it started off as a pile of scrap metal.
That's just part of the fun!
Following 1000 leads to find 999 duds...but that 1 cool find....it's worth it!
OK, the curious side of me want to go to the shop and try it...
The cautious side is a little scared! What's up with this?
I got a whole bag of #12x¼" from my local fastenall. Cost about 4 bucks for 30 of them.
And Boyd...I'll be happy if all turns out half as nice as yours before you tore her down!
Nope, not laquer thinner.
The stuff that you use to clean paint brushes that costs about 4 bucks a gallon!(and stinks bad!)
Yup, Craftsman...and don't waste your money on "no-name" vise grips!
Welcome aboard...from a slightly younger guy from Canada!
It's looking real good Al!
If you want to scratch build a box(with tailgate) I would be happy to help!(I got a little experience there!)
I am using regular hardware store paint thinner, mixed until it's just right(about 4 parts paint to 1 part thinner.)
The primer I used is also...
A freind gave me a set of mirrors from a motor bike, so, after some tweaking, I bolted them on.
I guess you wanna know what this...
On the inside, I wanted some tunes, but diddn't want to mount it in the dash...I think that looks kinda cheezy.
So, I built an overhead console...
Once again I am slow to update!
Finally got that Beetle floor done(never again!), so I could get back to the toy!
I had a real cool pic of me...
Don't go with the 2.73's...it will launch like a dump truck. 3.08's are much better.
Think it's hard starting? Wait until you try to dissolve a business.
How about dumping out the cat box under the car. My neighbor swears by this, and says the cat odour keeps them away. Makes sense to me.
When I shot my three coats of rustoleum, I did them 24 hours apart.
Pretty much dry between coats. No hardener.
