I've been a member for a few years here, but I've been away for a while because I haven't really had any HAMB friendly vehicles. That changed this weekend when I acquired my wife's late grandfather George's 1934 Ford 5-Window. Its a really neat car. I don't have any good pictures of it yet, but it's pretty nice. It's an older restoration, done by George himself. It's fairly original with some modifications done to aid in drivability (juice brakes, later motor, 12V). He drove it to Michigan, Canada, everywhere. I have never owned, driven or worked on a flathead in my life, so there is a steep learning curve. Before I even got it on the trailer I had to replace a water pump with very few tools (that was an eye opener) and diagnose a bad plug wire. So, a few questions if I might; It's running rich, really rich. I turned the two idle mixture screws almost all the way in, and it is still really rich. There's a slight stumble at idle, and it turns into a miss/carb fart at partial throttle cruise, but seems to go away under full power. My first thought was power valve/economizer valve. The engine runs smooth, seems to have plenty of power (for what it is), it just needs a tune up I think. I haven't checked the plugs, but I think I'm going to buy some NGKs and do a new set of plug wires. Second question, what's the best way to tighten up the belt? I can't seem to find a way to get any leverage to snug it up. Lastly, how do you open the dang rumble seat? Thanks in advance guys and gals for any help. It feels good to be back, I'll be an Alliance member again here soon.
