Quick question here. Can't seem to find anything on the proper way to install the eccentric rivet in the steering box. Does the high point of the rivet go up or down? Found nothing in the service...

Re: Borg Warner Overdrive

Check and see if the lever that the cable operates is spring loaded. If not it could be in 180* out. The rod that it actuates has a foot on it inside the housing that holds the slide either to the...

Re: Rear hub won't turn

I had the drums cut 1/8" and it did turn better but still a little tight. Where does one find axle shims? It's getting better but still needs a little tweeking. Thanks again for all the help.

Re: new engine runs too rich HELP!! Up date111

Re: new engine runs too rich HELP!!

PV is original and it has back fired so as soon as my new one gets here I will change it out. Also, when I screw the mixture screws in it keeps running as if nothing has changed. Hopefully the new...

Re: new engine runs too rich HELP!!

Thanks Ken. I did go out and bump timing up a bit. It now runs without the air cleaner on it, but still will burn your eyes. I might try to bump it more tomorrow. Might pull distributor and start...

Re: new engine runs too rich HELP!!

Vacuum at idle is 18hg. Power valve is stock. I ordered a 10.5 pv just in case. I will try and advance the timing and see what effect it has. Where do you get e-3 plugs for a model a?

Re: new engine runs too rich HELP!!

Carb has been apart soooo many times just to get all the leaks stopped. What do I torque the manifold gaskets to? I think I torqued them to 35. Maybe I'm a little lite there. Also forgot to say...

Re: new engine runs too rich HELP!!

Fuel line is pretty much level with the ground. Tank is full so I'm getting plenty of fuel flow. The idle mixture screws are adjusted to let it idle smoothly. If I remove the air cleaner, it dies....

Re: disc brake conversion

Check with speedway. They sell all kinds of brake conversions for the hot rod gang.
