  1. Stormberg accelerator pump

    I have the same problem and I agree with F&J on the problem. If the car starts fine after the initial start after the few day rest I would bet on fuel evaporation.
  2. Solved one problem but now there is another

    Hello, I have experienced a blocked (NOS muffler with installed nest) exhaust system, another time late ignition timing. Both events the engines got hot in a short time.
  3. Hello, I have a trunk handle that when locked the square shaft only locks up in the unlock position and seems to be slipping over something it is not supposed to be slipping over when turning in the direction to lock the trunk. The other handle is completely free of the square shaft when unlocked and locks up in both directions in the locked position. Is this a common problem and is it serviceable? Also the wheels of our car has what appears to be nice white paint under a thin coat of black paint, I used a lacquer thinner dampened rag and removed some of the black paint, (which does come off easily), and the white paint seems to be unaffected by the thinner as I see no white pigment on the rag. I really am not looking forward to doing four wheels with a lacquer thinner rag but am afraid a paint stripper will affect the white paint can anyone recommend anything more user friendly than lacquer thinner. Getting the C-10 ready for a trip! Thanks, Jay
  4. Tip on repairing a warped carb air horn??

    Posted Today, 04:59 PM This kickdown switch was in the oven at 500 F for a while then I drove a previously prepared wedge Gently between the block and switch, I had an old carburetor that I put a propane torch to and found that it melted above 500F, using a "temple stick" something welders use to check welding temperatures. Your situation appears a bit more involved, maybe with some long machine screws a flat surface and some heat it might work. Good luck, Jay Attached Thumbnails

  7. photos of our cars

    We have a few older cars, 8 are currently operable with a few more to be made operable and some parts cars. None of them being show cars, a couple of them preserved originals, some saved from any ill conceived rodding efforts and just some saved from the scrap yard
  8. original interior

    From the album photos of our cars

    I removed green plaid seat covers that I believe were on from the assembly line. Each cushion had a brown paper tag affixed with an upholstery staple, it is still visible on the right rear seat back.
