i am wondering what is the best oil to use in the bump oil pump or to use it at all ?   or is oiling the felts the best way to oil them and what oil to use ?

 

Thanks  Mike  1929 130 Sedan

We used Mobile One - hand lubed all the point via oil can and then added some oil to the valve pads (via 1930 147 series, though doubt anything different for a 29 23 Series car) - your main concern is heat and an oil that can take such.

 

Please take no offense, but the dual carbs are probably a just whole bunch of grief when combined with a downdraft engine (a 29 is pretty much a 50 mph car with 55 for short periods) - speed just breaks things.

Thanks for the oil information John just what I was looking for.  As far as the carbs they are mostly for looks and I sold the up draft on ebay for all most $500.00 

 

PS  No offence taken.

 

Thanks again Mike

I hung onto my extra Stromberg U-3's for just that reason of cost / rarity  you speak of (I worked hard to have extra parts and .....

 

As to the valves - I oiled on the equivalent of a half day to day of driving = Every 4-6 to 8 hours on the engine - depended on how convenient it was to work on ccar via its usage.  I ran car about 6K miles and next owner followed my instructions and ran car another 17K miles without service issues.
