  4. 1940 Zephyr V12 help

    If you can suck throu the vacuum Can,then the Diaphragm inside is need a new one.. (lincoln land florida ,may be is a source).. The other Thing is ,if you have 2 Carbs,there the ported Vacuum is less then with the original single one...may be the (new) Can will not move the full way while acceleration .. you can try to loose the adjusting screw on it so the less Vacuum will move the ignition to befor much easier.

  13. My β€œnew 1938 Buick Special”

    Haven't seen this model before....very nice.... wish you much stressless fun with it. I think the Century has 15 " wheels ? I would switch over to 16" and ride, like mine ,also with 7.50 tires on rear. My special with 7.50 -16", runs 5 miles faster with the same revs instead of the original 6.50 gums. Greetings from the other Side of our World.
  14. Master Cylinder Rebuild for a 37

    Let Sleeving your Cylinder... πŸ‘πŸΌ. The Problem is the deep rusted damages inside the Cylinder ...., only a Rebuild Kit will not fix that Problem.

    Man... thats a Dream for me too,since Years...,an Overdrive in my 38 Special ... The hopped up 263 has an easy play with my lighten up Car . for Autobahn it would be perfect. 1500 Dollar sounds at first very nice...i would pay it without a big think about it. But if i think ahead about the costs for the freight to him to Ohio and back to me in Germany gets me very sick ...🀒.. Sometimes....if i had save enough Money...πŸ˜‰
