  1. Thanks for the information. I certainly need parts for my car. Do you have a list if items that you have available?
  2. I have a 46 Torpedo that is in need of a new fuel sending unit. I cannot seem to locate on the has the fuel pickup in the unit itself. It seems as though no other make besides pontiac did this. I have seen where people have added their own, but I don't trust that. Does anyone know where I can get one? Pleas help!
  3. I have a 719s. It was on my 46 Pontiac for some reason. I just bought a rebuilt kit from Daytona parts. It seems as though the original carb is missing a spring for the pump and also the clip for the needle. I tried to rebuilt it, but am so turned around, that I am going to just buy the 630s that should be on the car.
  4. Anyone know where to buy new gas tank straps for a 46 torpedo 8? Also looking for fuel line. Not too sure the size of fuel line I need though. Any help would be greats appreciated!
  5. So what you are saying is that all I need to do is purchase a WCD rebuild kit and I would be good to go?
  6. Looks like a radio delete.
  7. Maybe a dumb question. I have a 46 torpedo 8 that is suppose to have a carter WDO carb on it. I found the model on the carb and it either says WCD or WGD. I am going to pull the carb off to find out for sure, but I am wondering if there is any real big concern about running one of those over a WCD carb? Again, this may be a stupid question, I just want to find out before I drop good money on a rebuild kit for a carb that won't work properly on my car. Thanks!

  9. I am in the process of fixing up a 46 Pontiac that has a dual diaphram fuel pump. The fuel pump doesn't seem to be pumping gas at all. I noticed that other day that there is nothing hooked up to the wiper line on the top of the fuel pump. My question is, could that be causing the fuel pump not to work or does that not effect the fuel pump because of it being seperate from the fuel portion of the pump. Thanks for ANY help I can get.
  10. I have a 46 torpedo 8 that is having issues with the mechanical fuel pump. I am debating on rebuilding the fuel pump or replacing it with and electronic one. This car has been switched over to 12 volt. Does anyone have any recommendations? Does anyone know where to buy a rebuild kit or a new mechanical pump? Or possibly any information on bypassing the mechanical pump. Thanks for any help that is out there!
  11. I am converting it, because I am doing a complete overhaul on this car to make it as reliable as possible for a daily driver. I will have modern radio, I want brighter lights, I want to be able to purchase a 12 volt battery over the counter if need be. The car needs a complete re-wiring, because the people that owned this car before me had NO clue what they were doing. The old wiring are spliced a hundred times over, and it looks as though a mouse has chewed through half of them. I am not looking to make this car an original masterpiece, I just want to be able to take my kids to school in it, and haul my camper around.
  12. Anyone have tips or tricks on converting to 12 volt? I am completely requiring the car and decided that the conversion was in order.
  13. I am rewiring my 46 torpedo, and I am wondering if anyone may have the outer trim ring for the headlights. Not the one that wraps around the headlight itself, but the one that covers everything. Mine are both pretty mashed up and I am having a hard time finding replacements. Also looking for a radio delete plate. Thanks!
  14. I am replacing all of the wiring in my 46 Torpedo. My headlight sockets are cracked apart. Does anyone know how universal the 3 prong sockets are? Were the same ones used for a lot of years??
