  1. Here is a picture but it may not help much. The u shaped wire is the primer lever. I checked the catalogs and it was used on many marine engines but probably has to be one that uses a pump with a top and bottom cover. The only problem I had with my boat was when the engine happened to stop with the pump arm all the way in but all you had to do was bump the starter. Dave
  2. One other possible solution is you could build up a AC mechanical pump with a hand prime lever. There is one on my Buick but I don't need to use it. They were common on marine engines like the Chris Crafts K series, AC pump number 4294. Then and Now Auto Parts offered to build another one up for me so they can probably still do one. Dave
  3. Thanks for posting. A couple of times it looked like you got it going pretty fast, any idea on what it will do without pushing it real hard? Dave
  4. If it has not been done you may want to drop the oil pan and clean it out and give everything a look , clean the oil pump screen if they have one. Dave
  5. I will knock on wood but my 31, 66s, does not have that problem. If cold it needs a second or two of choke then off it goes, no choke when warm. I do drive it often but if it has sat for a few weeks it will start quickly using the choke.The fuel line from the pump to the carb has the loop in it and the carb is the original 10-795. I can't imagine it makes a difference but it does have the late 31 air cleaner. I did have to block off the heat riser, replaced the tubes, and installed a new intake/exh. gasket to cure a lean when hot running problem. Dave edit -I have been using no ethanol fuel for the last year or two.
  6. You might add contact information too.
  7. Here it is with the left hand on. Could this be a Model T specific accessory? Thanks Dave
  8. I could be losing it but didn't you have another thread on spark plug gap? I can't find it. Dave
  9. I asked on the what is it section and received some great patent info which is appreciated. Do you think this was used on a specific vehicle or was it aftermarket? I would love to put it on my 24 roadster but there is no good place to mount it. Any thoughts on its value? Thanks Dave
  10. Does anyone have any info on the Green Hand turn signal pictured below? It looks like it had a specific mount but probably aftermarket. Thanks Dave
  11. I found tubing at McMaster Carr for my 31. It was stainless and slightly larger than needed but the machine shop that took the old ones out (2 on a 31) made the tubes work. Dave
  12. I did not catch where it is at (city) I think Michigan ? Thanks Dave
  13. My father and one of his race cars at his Manhasset, LI service station. He raced from 28-32. He spoke of a Miller Ford and the other I remember was one with a v8 Hisso airplane engine converted to 4 cylinders. Not sure which one this is. Dave
