Re: Need a distributor

He’s been responding to PM here. I’m confident, if you paid Jim for a crab you will get it. Be patient in these difficult time.

If you haven’t sent Jim money, try CharleNY also on barn.

Re: Electric fuel pumps...

Hi Pete

My 39 (w/ dual 94a) only has an electric pump. I never needed to run carb dry. I do not have any smell of gas in garage.

I would check for a leak. Maybe around fuel filter?

It was the coil. Guess it was intermittent then totally died. The forth one borrowed from friend worked.

As always thanks for all your help.

Re: 39 coupe
