    Thanks guys they should work well.


    It can be trying and takes a great deal of patience and a steady hand with the TIG torch.

    Today was the first outing for the RPU this spring :cool:

    I spent the better part of the day sorting out little things from the disassembly for the heads and refinishing the carbs and manifold.

    Once I got it running I realized that the rear carb was leaking out of the accelerator pump shaft and after shut down was leaking fuel onto the butterflies.

    The front 2 carbs were working perfectly.
    So I removed the top of the carb and adjusted the float level lower and put it back together.

    Success :cool: Probably for the first time ever no leaks.
    Balanced the carbs and installed the Edmunds air cleaners and went for a little run.

    Runs better than it ever has. :cool:
    So much fun :cool:

    I'm so glad you did this thread. Everyone who sees your car will think it is cool but miss a lot of the detail. Those of us who got to see the step by step build will know how cool.
