  1. Having some issues with our original carb and rebuilding it does not help as the choke is broken as well as a few other issues. Love to find an NOS, Rebuilt, or a carb in better condition than ours! Send me a PM through the forum if you have one....Thanks! Let me know the condition, price and shipping (to Boise, ID) and any other info you have on it. Thanks and take care! (ours has the 719 on it but the 720 was also used on these or so I'm told)
  2. Looking for NOS or Reman or even a used but in working or rebuildable condition carb for our car. Carter WCD 719/720 (2)bbl Ous has the 719 on it and has issues so another is needed. Send me a message through the forum with price and such. Thanks!
  3. I know how you feel...I work for a bearing distributor here in Idaho as the buyer for our branch and the mark up is astounding! A lot of bearings are made in China these days with some being better than others but it pays to check around and find the best pricing. The auto parts giants are not always the best places but sometimes that is the only place to go. If you look in the yellow pages under bearings and find a place like where I work, you can get a selection of brands and prices instead of just one choice. A lot of folks think they have to go to auto parts stores for bearings but that simply is not the case!
  4. Yes, we thought about that but were not sure if we want to tear into it and find it is already 60 over. It runs a little hot now so even if it is 30 over now, it may not be the best thing to go through it. I'm not savy on this stuff myself but we were thinking a turnkey motor would be the easiest to get the sound/HP he wants. Friend of ours said we could change out the cam and a few other things to get the desired effect so we are still researching it. It does have the 4 bbl Quadrajet but no other big up-grades. Stock everything as far as we know. I'm all for keeping it as well so we will see what happens! Any ideas on cam #'s and other upgrades a person can do with a stock motor that will give it the rough idle but not be a huge expense?
  5. Thanks! We have one now that seems to be working!
  6. Thanks for the info. We will give it a try!
  7. Well, we are stumped. Replaced the modulator but no change. The linkage has been adjusted with no change. Guess it is time to take it in for a more extensive search!
  8. We have a stock 283 1964 Chevelle with the 2 speed Powerglide. Hubby is pestering me about ordering a 383 (Summit engine) and putting it in but not changing anything else in the car. It does not have Posi or any other modification. All stock from the factory. 10 bolt rearend, Any opinions? An engine builder here said it is possible if you go with a low HP build. Also, any folks bought a block/motor from Summit and had any issues? Thanks!
  9. We bought a 1964 Chevelle with a 283 and the 2 spd Powerglide but what we noticed is that it shifts almost immoderately into 2nd. We are replacing the modulator but is there more we should be looking into? It will not down-shift as well. Anyone had the same problem and fixed it? We have a Powerglide handbook and have tried a few things so I was wondering what everyone else may have done to correct fast shifting and no down-shift. Thanks!
  10. He would not commit to a full refund. Made up my mind!
  11. I'm asking him to agree to give all the $ back if it is not good. We will see if he agrees. He is a consignor-selling parts for other people. The box pictured is old/labels faded so I can only assume it is a very old rebuild.
  12. Thanks! The Ebay one he wants to sell it to me for $100 total but I'm not so sure as the warranty thing may be an issue even though Paypal backs you up on purchases. Kanter has a core fee of $59 and our core is no good. Cracked and all! What does everyone think on purchasing an old, reconditioned pump? Are the parts still viable after say 20 years?
  13. Thanks! I hope someone out there might need it! I'll give them a great price if they do!
  14. Have one sitting around? Is it good? Email me if you would. Thanks!
  15. Any one have a good one or know of a place besides CPR and Kanter that may have one? Email if you have any ideas!
  16. I have a super nice reman/rebuilt Pontiac water pump we bought in error. The guy said it was for 46-48 8 cyl but it is the long shaft style for a 6 cyl. 1939-40. It is sold now! Thanks!
  17. I bought a reman water pump that said it was for a 46-48 Pontiac 6 and 8 cyl all. It has a long shaft on it and would put the fan into our radiator. I'm thinking it must be for the 6 cyl? Don't know but the casting # on it is 509114. Looks just like the original 37-48 pump but with a long shaft. If you need it, email with any offer.
