Re: 6V generator

I would contact the seller first and discuss your concerns. I don't know the terms of your sale but most sellers won't take back an electrical item if it has been used.

I seem to recall a photo and a description of

Re: Flathead repair

It could be something in the gas tank moving around
and blocking the fuel pickup tube, then releasing when

the engine is turned off.

Re: Orange/LA county recommendation for Diff. Rebuild

I would think seriously about replacing that axle. More than likely
it suffered some unusual stresses at some point which eventually
resulted in that failure. NOS or good used ones are still around.

Re: fuel pump rebuild....

Consider replacing the flexible fuel line between the fuel line

air into the line but it won't leak fuel. They will also collapse...

Re: Columbia Vacuum Plate

Russ, To get proper vacuum, make sure the plate you get pulls vacuum from
both venturies. There are some plates that only pull from one side. I think
they are for gas fed heaters.
