    Quadrajet carb

    The quadrajet s a fine carb with very small primaries and very large secondaries. Driven moderately it returns fine mileage but hard driving opens those secondaries resulting in great power with the resulting poor mileage. GM used the quadrajet on millions of vehicles throughout the years with very few problems. One area they did experience was weeking core plugs in the bottom of the carb. Check with your local shop to see if this is occurring.
  14. Used cast iron bellhousing for the 216 or 235 inline six cylinder. In great condition. $75 includes free shipping to the lower 48 states.
  15. The one I had on my '37 120CD had wire going to the chicken wire in the roof covering. Reception was poor possible due to age. It was better when the under runningboard antenna was installed.
  16. I can check my Delco book next week when I get home if it will help. Just let me know.
  17. Shouldn't be a problem as long as the vehicles aren't touching each other. GMC use positive ground for quite awhile while Chevy used negative ground.
  18. TIA stands for Tire Industry Association. They set the standards for anything tire related such as tire and wheel repairs etc. The repair industry, tire manufacturers, equipment suppliers, vehicle manufacturers, along with others meet to set standards. Basically anything tire related whether it is a scooter, motorcycle, passenger car, dump truck to even the big rigs to even earth moving equipment follows these standards. Twice a year TIA hold instruction classes where people from the field are trained in order to instruct techs in the proper techniques to diagnose tires and properly install, repair, and maintain them.
  19. I have worked in the automotive/truck field for decades (ASE master tech, TIA commercial tire instructor, state and federal vehicle inspector, etc). I have operated both 6 volt, 12 volt, and the occasional big rig. My daily vehicle for decades was a 1947 Chevy truck switched to 12 volts. You can convert a 6 volt to 12 volt but will need to change all bulbs to 12 volt. All electrical gauges radio, and motors (generator, wipers, blower) would have to have resistors or be changed to 12 volts. A lot of vehicles from the 1960's and onward had their voltage dropped from 12 volt by resistors. You will have to drop the voltage via resister for the point system. You can keep your existing 6 volt starter without dropping the voltage. 12 volts will make it spin faster. The same goes with a 6 volt horn (12 volts will make them louder). The main thing to remember with 6 volt systems is that all connections need to be clean and wiring is thicker. A properly timed and tuned vehicle with 6 volts will be slower cranking (compared to 12 volts) but will operate fine. The changeover is fairly simple. The biggest advantage is much greater parts selection especially if you want to travel with the vehicle. For instance, see how many parts stores carry 6 volt batteries and how many choices they offer when compared to 12 volts. Another example is a 6 volt flasher versus the many choices for a 12 volt flasher
