Re: Holley 94 rebuild questions

The one in my hand... While I don't have a BB around to check, and it's been a long time since I've used an air rifle... I think what was there is very similar in size, to the best of my recognition....

Re: Holley 94 rebuild questions

36 is getting an 8ba. It was missing a few things, but I think you answered my question with it going to the distributor

Rebuilding two carbs, one for grandpa's 35, the other or my 36 pickup.

Re: Working on grandpa's car.

By hand? No. I'm not a 200lb gorilla. With a short ratchet no problem

Re: Working on grandpa's car.

This was my diagnosis well. Can't rule out some other things just yet. New to these old cars but by tearing down the flathead for my truck I have seen some parts and I thought it might be this. I...

Re: Working on grandpa's car.

Thanks Kevin. I should have stated I know it should be reverse polarity. Or maybe we now have the reverse in modern times. 🤣

Re: Working on grandpa's car.

I figured they were out there, 6v pumps. I just threw that in there to show it's been tinkered with.

I don't know how to check if the car wants 12v or 6v. I don't want to damage a guage or...

Got a fender brace for the truck....

Pretty rough, so had to fix it up, and because i tend to go the long way, I decided to attempt making a matching mirror image from scratch.

Re: Adding petina to a reproduction 32 Grille Emblem

I think mightycarmods did something like this on their YouTube channel. They used various methods on different panels for a somewhat scientific experiment. Salt water, beer, and urine.

Re: lets see your winter front grill.

Not for my truck, not even for an early v8. Looks a little small for a 28/9 model a. But it's pretty cool. If the mechanism was modified for a cable operation it'd be really cool

Re: Happy turkey day, had ours Sunday, so this is for yall

Original hood was pretty much junk. I cut the side hinges off after far too much wasted time trying to bang them out and patch them up. I got them close enough to make a template and rolled new...

My first go at making a panel from scratch, did salvage the side hinge though. Sorry I'm a noob and can't make roller dies on the lathe yet. Lots more Tig practice though
