Re: Turns over slowly.

I don't honestly know. I think my LaSalle might be original issue as it "looks" like it is although it runs real nice.

Bill's '39 is rebuilt and has always had that issue if I understand him...

Turns over slowly.

My friend has a 39 Dodge and I have a 40 LaSalle. We both have the same issue and since no other auto maker has FORUMS like Ford does I am hoping to find some help here.

The cars start easily when...

Re: Need a source~~~~~!!

I have gas boiling in the float bowl and I can't go 2 miles without a vapor lock hence the need for a spacer. Phoenolic would be great. Where might I find phoenolic stock?

Need a source~~~~~!!

I need a source to purchase a carb spacer that will fit my 322CI 1940 LaSalle equipped with a carter and sometimes Stromberg Carbs.

Re: 1940 LaSalle Fuel Starved

I wondered about the elevation of the pump. The line feeding the pump was below the pump. I finally got it to "trickle" but not enough to run the car.

I mounted the pump on the fender well so it...

Will buy a rubber fuel line today to run from the tank to the fuel pump and see what happens.

1940 LaSalle Fuel Starved

1940 322 CI was running sweet when all of a sudden it coughed and died. I've determined that it wasn't getting any fuel so I purchased and installed a rebuilt fuel pump and "no joy".

Re: 6V electric Fuel Pump

My car came with many extra parts including several fuel pumps. One was "new" and unused. I installed it and gas was pissing out of the side so I figured the diaphragms had rotted with age.

Burnt Out Headlight

What would cause a headlight to burn out quickly?

I installed a new headlight and it burnt out the first time I turned the lights on.
The other light works fine.

Re: Penetrating oil-what is best

50/50 mix of tranny fluid and acetone. I have it in a spray bottle so I have SOME control over where it goes but it works GREAT!

It does separate so you have to shake it every time before use.

Don't know who rebuilt it but they seem to have done a nice job. Runs well and starts easy. I assume it was done in the Olympia area as that is where I found it.
