Re: Carburetor Issues - School me

Hi Joe
I replaced the carburetor on my H engine with a 7HA carb off ebay.
Then a rebuild kit. Now it runs great.
I think the rebuild kit cost more than the carburetor did.

Re: Greasing

Large trucks and equipment very often you would need to lift up and let down all four corners to get pins and shafts to take grease.

Re: Truck based woody

Gary
Now is a chance to spend more time with the grandkids. Show them some about wood work and truck maintenance. Pick and choose which jobs you take on, and enjoy life.

Re: Help with transmission selection

Kirby
you can get a 12 bolt 2.41:1 third member from a 79 camero, etc. They work good with 350/350 combo. About 70 MPH at 2100 RPM.

Re: Help with transmission selection

I have never had the nerve to really "pour the coal" to my car. I have too much time and money in it and couldn't stand to break anything.
