  1. Do as Carbking says. Set your metering rods to factory. You will also need to raise you float height to nearly an 1/8th Over factory settings as modern fuel has a way less Specific Gravity. ( you’ll be running rich at factory settings. ) . Then use a vacuum gauge to set you air screw to the maximum vacuum you can get. The adjust your timing to get maximum vacuum again. Then go back and do the air screw on more time. Then do the timing one last time to get maximum vacuum. Once this is achieved, retard timing by one column. a quality Vacuum gauge with a big dial is best. This method is by far the best way to tune those Carbs and your timing. Ask any Hudson guy. good luck.
  2. Flathead Ford V8. someone here will give the year.
  3. The two on the right are 1927 Hudson’s. the two on the left are Hudson’s as well. Likely 1925 or 26 judging by the Fenders. these bus like cars were very common in NewZeland and Australia.
  4. I do as well on my 29 Hudson. This is a great thread by way. Your very lucky. Also , you must adjust your float height for modern fuels specific gravity is significantly less than fuel from when your carb was designed. Generally speaking ( not knowing your carb ) I raise the float height in all my cars almost an 1/8”.
  5. Hudson super six. Up to 23, possibly 24. right hand drive cars used this longer than left hand drive cars.
  6. 33 Hudson looks closer.
  7. My first car. I bought it before I had my licence in around 1979 or so. It also had the plastic still on the seats and was gold in colour. A very nice car. I always thought it had a 260 v8. drove it for years until my Dads Girlfriend borrowed it and stuffed the thing under a tractor trailer. 🥺
  8. There is not thing negative about a twin -H setup. They need to be dialled in just like any other multi carb set up. I get 18 mpg all day long. A blast to drive.
  9. Assuming your from the US. How can a 30% discount be something you regret?
  10. I guess it’s like what has been said, availability to the film crew. Budget driven prop contractors. it’s still a very enjoyable show with a good glimpse into days gone by. I would enjoy seeing the odd English relic.
  11. Bubba- Where’s the second Spare tire at now? Bobby Lee- I ate it.
  12. I’ve been watching the series since it’s beginning. It’s in its final season now. I’ve always questioned why every episode has/shows three or four Model T’s in the background. Never inaction, but as part of the scene, just in the background. The family seams to be well off with Bentleys, Rolls and the odd Daimler, but the back ground cars are all and always Ford Model T’s. Seams odd to me for such a popular series filmed in the Uk that is so dedicated to the way things were back then to only have Model T’s as props.
  13. I’d love to see some more photos of that Motor !
  14. Hi, I’m interested in you clocks. can you put a tape measure on the front and back of the rim wind for me please and post the photos. thanks
  15. I agree with 54coupe. not Hudson. 39 was bolted also.
  16. Go to the HCCA club , lots of good brass cars for sale there.
  17. They were most definitely were pot metal for the rob rails in 28 and 29 Hudson. I used the term escutcheon in the wrong place.
  18. The escutcheon plate and arm design is very very similar to 28 Hudson. I’ll post some pics later on.
  19. Not a 60-61, but what about a mint 66 Windsor. 440. 4dr ? Very close to you.
  20. The spare tire is attached to the trunk. When the back half of the trunk opens you have kinda of a tuck box. My dad has the same trunk on his 23 Essex 4. We’ve only ever seen one other like it. This is now the third.
  21. That’s a very long stroke on that crank shaft.
  22. It would help it you show pics of the diff and front axle plus give the size of the wheels.
  23. They are know as Doodlebugs.
