Re: Speedometer Gear Housing Leak

No plug. I may have missed it when I disassembled but I didn't see one. The end of the gear shaft is open.

I have a Revolution Electronics fuel pump controller on the way. It works off tach signals to keep pump running.

Filter for Fuel Pump

Took my 1930 coupe, with a Stromberg 81, out for a test drive today. I think that I could feel some stumble at higher rpms so now I will follow what most say and install a fuel pump. I have chosen a...

Re: Another Amp Meter Question

Thanks! After doing some searching this seems like it might be the best option. Just rework my panel to make it fit. Not just the hole size but maybe need to space it out due to depth also.

Re: Bell Crank for Down Draft

Thanks. Still thinking about this linkage. Comments from the majority here is that my setup requires a pump so I am kind of expecting that. I would like to take it around the block using gravity...

Re: Bell Crank for Down Draft

Uncle Max built my carb so I checked with him regarding the SnapBack spring. He thinks that it would be too much along with his already installed heavy accelerator pump fulcrum spring.

Thanks,...

Re: Manifold Stud Torque

Ok, sounds like I have a plan. Dig up my old head nuts and lose the brass.

And yes I did check the manifolds with a straight edge. Could see no gap.

Thanks a lot!
