  2. Did Pontiac use an artillery wheel in the 30`s? I know Chevrolet did but wasn't sure about the Pontiacs.

    getting fuel to carb after tank and line replacement

    Not saying that this is the best way and probably not in the top 100 so use it as a cautious suggestion as the carb is sensitive. But..... one time I needed to get fuel to the pump so I took a plastic spray paint lid and drilled a hole so that my rubber tipped air nozzle would poke through it. I placed the cap over the fuel filler neck and held it down and gave the tank a shot of air from my compressor. Just a quick pull of the trigger was enough pressure to get the gas moving. Just remember these carbs only like 1 or 2 psi.

    Manifold differences

    Good, hope it helps you out in your quest. Hmmmm, I do possibly need a few pieces. I'm not sure if I still have pics of that car any more or not. I'll have to check.

    Manifold differences

    I thought I remember seeing a little bit of green around the bellhousing/clutch cover area but that was a few years ago and could be mistaken. Unfortunately I did not remove my manifolds as they looked good and worked properly. I have a few more pics that's shows some of the manifold flanges but not much. Which ones do you need to know about specific? I might be able to get some pics for you tonight.

    41 Pontiac master cylinder proportioning valve

    Is yours a 90 degree fitting? if so I had trouble finding one like that. I used one that was a little different. This is similar http://www.studebakerparts.com/studebakerparts/store/s/agora.cgi?product=brakes4& also jeeps used some. https://www.4wheelparts.com/Brakes-Steering/Crown-Automotive-Brake-Fitting-JA000557.aspx?t_c=65&t_s=22&t_pt=101655&t_pn=CROJA000557&utm_source=google&utm_medium=cpc&scid=scplpCROJA00055790941&sc_intid=CROJA00055790941&gclid=EAIaIQobChMIwdCP6uXZ1gIVkYhpCh0GbgTDEAQYASABEgLLFPD_BwE

    Headlights, What vehicle?

    Looks like mine is missing the cross bar between the lamps. The lower bar at the outer end curves down where it attaches to the fender. In the car above it look like it straight but I cant quite see all of it.

    I have not taken the housing apart yet. But here are a few more pics. No adjusting screw in the back.
