    I have started many a n old engine by pouring a small amount of oil down the carb. it restores compression. Try it you may like it.

    Have you checked the compression. The cyd. walls may be washed down. Try motor oil through carb.

    60 year old freeze plugs in single digits

    how do you eat a temp.
  10. sorry I may not have mention its a 1955 special
  11. What I was trying to say is the old lines will be to short to reach the caliper and must be extended and new flex lines installed. you will need a proportioning valve to rear brake. I changed out master cylinder ,added booster and remote reservoir and all new lines. Hope this answers any questions. P.S. it is not easy.
