Re: Reassembly ?

If you are talking about the hollow fuel pump push rod, try to balance it in the center on your finger. The heavy end goes down.

The subject Mallory does not appear to have vacuum advance but a Mallory with vacuum advance can be converted for flathead use such as this one I did some time ago.

Re: Float gauge for Holly 1901 carb

If by "heat riser" you mean the tube that is located on the lower part of the intake.
Blocking that tube will prevent hot air from reaching the heated element in the automatic choke as it should....

Re: The Ford Books Fastener Guide

Re: 8ba Heads 7RT or EAB

IMO it won't make that much difference unless the heads are shaved/massaged to get the much touted .050" head to piston clearance.

Re: Float gauge for Holly 1901 carb

As stated in my post #2 above, 1/2" from top of chamber.
I never did it with water as it is a different density than gasoline and will give false results.
The toe end is furthest from the valve...

Re: Float gauge for Holly 1901 carb

Yes, indeed correct.
Sorry for any confusion caused by my use of the word "float" instead of
'fuel'.

Re: Float gauge for Holly 1901 carb

Considering that the float chamber is virtually identical to the 885 Holley, I suspect they are the same.
The fuel level spec. for the 885 is (1/2" 1/32") from the top of the chamber. That is when...

Re: What is it?

Sure looks like a container used for the disposal of used double edge razor blades with a hole for storage of the handle.
Probably came as part of a travel shave kit.

Re: Any 52-54 Lincoln owners out there?

Although the vintage (1952-1953) sort of fits here, this forum is primarily for the flathead era. '52 Lincolns used an OHV engine but most of the rest of the vehicle is the same and there are some...

As I recall the only tabs inside the door window channel were in the corners and the glass has to be sufficiently relieved to provide clearance.

Re: Ebay sales tax in place

If your state has a sales tax, you can expect a tax equal to the percentage rate required by your state.
There is not any sales tax imposed on 'sellers'.

This is a state tax that is imposed on buyers by the state in which the buyer lives in and if your state does not have a sales tax, then you should not be charged tax.

Re: 1934 Missing -Covering My Bases

Last one I saw with these symptoms was due to the (cracked) cork fuel bowl gasket (sucking air)
Or possibly just needs to be tightened.

Re: PCV process

The most important function of the PCV valve is to close off any flame path in the event of a carburetor backfire that may detonate the crankcase.

Re: Engine Mount Adapters

In as much as the heights are the same, but the offsets are different and you have the facility to relocate the hole.
Makes sense to get the (48-6038) and modify it to work.

Should be self explanatory, the (41A-6023) fits '32-'34.


The (48-6038) fits '35-'41.
