Re: Marvel Carb fuel bowl insert

In May 2015 I posted a photo of what everyone concluded was either a power or vent valve. I concluded by saying that the carb I was looking at was the only one with that feature and forgot all about...

Re: Marvel Carb fuel bowl insert

Yes, but I wonder if the carb can function without it.

Re: Marvel Carb fuel bowl insert

The white thing under the carb is a phone to prop it up to prevent glare.

Re: Marvel Carb fuel bowl insert

The photo thing is scarry to me --- I don't understand all the jargon -- thumbnails and such. In the post preview, the "thumbnail" photos are separate from the message section. Well anyway, it...

Re: Marvel Carb fuel bowl insert

Yes, itís an exact match. The Marvel might have been made to fit other car makes with some mods depending on the make. The insert might be an accelerator pump, two my carbs have the device and one...

Marvel Carb fuel bowl insert

Curious as to what the spring-loaded device does in the fuel bowl. Will the carb function without it?

Re: Longest trip you took in a Model A

1200 miles r/t Jacksonville, Fl to Abingdon, Va in 1995. My wife and I were new to the Model A and knew little of its capabilities. In retrospect, we were lucky to have made the trip with little...

Re: Opinions on tires wanted-

Bought four Garfield tires in 2004 for $70 ea (Coker Tire). Good tread but lots of cracking on the sides. I've been really happy with the tires.

Will buy similar tires soon especially before any...

I got the used F150 heater core from a radiator shop for $25, a Studebaker 6 volt blower from ebay (think I paid $55 to $60 ship incl), a switch for maybe $4, 3" x 4' flexible alum tubing and pvc...

Re: Hot water heater will not fit

I posted photos of my hot water heater back on 2/24/2020. Described it on 2/23/2020. Total cost below $100, not pretty but takes up little space and works great. Didn't get much attention but if you...

Re: Trying Something Different For Heat

Second McMimmics suggestion. An alternative to manifold heaters with increased danger of carbon monoxide entering the car. Has worked well for us.

Re: First time adjusting rod and mains

Chris in WNC touches on what I feel is the easiest and most accurate way to adjust your main/ rod bearings --- the "go/ no go" method using heavy duty aluminum foil in the place of Plastigauge.

Re: First trip observations.

I think that backfiring on deceleration can be caused by a lean fuel mixture and white spark plug residue can show high engine temperature. Maybe 1/2 turn GAV will help and a little more timing...

Re: Carburetor Restoration Guru's???

I haven't bought a rebuilt carb from Bert's but, if their carbs are as good as the rebuilt cutout I bought from them, they've got to be pretty darn good!

Re: Hot water heat?

It's not perfect --- have to route hoses to firewall connections to get hot water to the heater core but we don't need heat often in Florida. However, when traveling to the Florida panhandle during...
