  1. Thanks guys, your help has been invaluable. The system seems basic enough and the car runs great but I must have a tiny little hole in my pressure lines, because it won't bring gas to the carburator. The connections are tight and I can keep the car running well by filling the bowl with gas, but won't suck it from the back tank. I can even pump the dash-primer and bring gas to start it but the motor doesn't keep it going. Thanks for the help, fellas!
  2. Here are the caps and a pic of the body serial number on the toe-plate.
  3. The lettering, I believe, was put on sometime in the 40's judging by the font and aging. This car was produced in July of 1915 by the serial numbers- the entire motor and trans have been rebuilt in the 90's and the rest is original. I even have the top irons and material. I rebuilt the hand-pump and added new leather and it now works. Just have to seal the system by plugging the vent in the gas cap. I am cleaning the carb now and making sure the float isn't stuck. Here are some pics of the car- some are before cleaning and some are afterwards.
  4. Okay so somehow I need to seal my vented cap and figure out how many hand-pumps are enough to get it started. The problem I ran into was flooding while the car was idling. Not sure if my float was bad or the sealed system was incorrect. Both gas caps have vents in them and they are an original style. So that's curious.
  5. Hello DB Fans, I recently acquired a 1915 DB Touring car, I rebuilt the vacuum pump on the dash but was unable to pressurize the system to get gas to carb. So, I plugged the gas cap vent, got car started but flooded badly. I unplugged the gas cap and no longer get gas to carb??? What's the secret to success? How does this system work with a vent or without? My text is 630-608-3978 Thanks, James
  6. Video of car running is now here: https://youtu.be/S4hOgv9qTKM under "1923 Chevy Superior"
  7. Car is for sale and bumping up to the top for fresh eyes and offers.
  8. Thanks Gary, its all there and in pretty good shape. I would keep it, but I have a couple other balls in the air financially that are pressing. If I only had more space and was independently wealthy, (sigh)
  9. (SOLD) 1923 Chevrolet Superior 490 Touring Car. Original motor and 3-speed transmission. Runs and drives, clear open title. Newer roof, new head gasket and valve job, interior upholstery and wiring. Starts and runs well, I am having the carburetor professionally cleaned and will be back any day now. Need to sell for financial needs. Has demountable wheels. convertible roof, original horn and has recently had the radiator cleaned and re-cored by a shop. A bit of damage on the passenger side in front of the running board and tires look decent but are older. There are gobs of Model T's out there but fewer Chevys
  10. Anyone know if anyone rebuilds or makes a rebuilding kit for the GG?
  11. Looking fr a rebuilt or rebuilder for a Zenith 04 half-brass carburetor. Came off a '23 Chevrolet Superior. Contact Jim at 630-935-8561
  12. I have a '23 Chevy that has an old Zenith 04 carburetor that needs a full rebuild. Just wanted to see if someone does this or has one rebuilt for sale? Thanks, Jim Chochole
  13. Yes, the paint is a deep blue metallic. The original color of the car was blue in 62. Price lowered to $7K or best offer.
