  1. I think I will pass on the EFI system. I reviewed the Holley 0-7448 but specs cannot be used with A.O.D. I called about the Rochester 2G and was told it would not work. Any other suggestions? I appreciate any help
  2. Willie, I went to Affordable Fuel Injection web site and it did not list a system for a 264 nailhead. Do you know of another brand that might have an EFI for my engine?
  3. I give up on my Stromberg original carburetor #AAVB WITH AUTOMATIC CHOKE, PART NUMBER IS GE5 386869 (AEROTYPE). I WOULD LIKE TO PURCHASE ANOTHER CARBURETOR EXCEPT A NEW UPDATED STYLE MODEL. I WOULD GET RID OF THE ACCERLATOR START AND USE A PUSH BUTTON. MAYBE A HOLLY WOULD BE A GOOD CHOICE !!! ANY SUGGESTIONS AND DO YOU HAVE A MODEL NUMBER AND WHERE I CAN PURCHASE. I GUESS CFM IS IN THE RANGE OF 250 TO 350 CFM. THANKS
  4. Most of you know I am not a true mechanic and just somewhat know cars in general, so seems every experience is a learning experience. I thought I was a wise guy and purchased one of the Hi-Tork light weight starter. I first discovered it would not work at all and contacted the vender and they said they shipped the wrong one. I received the new one and installed it but it seem to make a funny noise but I have continued to use it for about 4 or 5 months. It has been hard to start and me not being a true mechanic, I decided that the gears or the angle of the starter gears were not mesh correctly. Many times it would seem to almost hit but kept doing that and not hitting after 6 or 7 trys. I noticed if I let up on the starter it would start. So, I decided to have my orginal starter rebuilt. Yesterday we installed it and starts perfect now. So I will not be trying any more hot shot Hi Tork starters again. In addition to the starter, I went back to my orginal wheels and now car is in perfect balance. I used the tires I had P235/75r--15 and all is good. The vender agreed to take back the aftermarket wheels back at 25% restocking. I am finally getting the car I had hoped for. Still learning folks and I appreciate all you guys help.
  5. Mr. Earl, I never got rid of them, thank goodness. It is the wheels that was on the car when I bought it. Wheels were painted same color as car. I am almost sure the wheels are original. The spare is same color and same size. I am sending back the aftermarket wheels due to not able to get them balanced.
  6. Been sorta under the weather but I believe I will live. When I purchased the car i gave the old tires to a friend, so I called him and the size was 235/75r 15. The tires looked good on the car and drove well, so I will use the new tires I already have. Thanks for all the help
  7. My last set of wheels and tires came from Coker Tires. It just I was tying to purchase the quietest running tire possible. I could not find where their tires are rated. I will run by there next week since I need to buy a couple other items from them and check them out, but I don't think there's a rating on them for ride comfort , ride noise etc. I hope I am wrong
  8. After all consideration, I think I will go with 215/75r 15
  9. Seems the tires have been changing through the years. I still don't know what size tire I need.
  10. Manual reads the car requires 760 x 15. Are tires still made with such numbers? All I have seen are numbers and letters such as P225/75r 15r etc. So what would a 760 x 15 convert to in nomenclature that I am familiar with.
  11. Just gathering opinions and thoughts. I want to use P235/75 R15. If I use this size I guess I will have to run a LITTLE UNDER INFLATED. To keep the center from over wearing. I most likely will only do about 3000 miles a year , if that much. Any opinions????
  12. I had an old 51 Olds that when it got hot, I would have to wait 2-3 hrs before it would start. Caused by worn rings. But, it ran great otherwise
