  1. Hi Peter, do you still have the Carbide Generator? Thanks, Rick.
  2. Hi guys. I've been tinkering with the carb and have it running pretty good. Today I checked the plugs and found one was a bit weak. Switched their positions and same. Looking for new ones now. Mine are AC FF. DO you know where to get replacements?
  3. Frank thanks for this information. I understand your description of the set up for the mixture delivery cylinder but you lost me at the air inlet valve. How much further should the air inlet be open over the mixture delivery cylinder? Rick.
  4. Thanks Frank, I got the Champion X plugs and put them in. The plugs come at .025" and my manual says 1/32 to 1/16. What gap do you run? I'm running the .025" now. On another topic, Iv'e had the carb apart because the car doesn't run well under load. It's fine for starting and idling and restarts fine when hot and even revs up well, but driving is a different story. As far as I can tell there is only a mixture screw adjustment and I've fiddled with that quite alot.It seems to run best at a little over 1/4 turn from close. Do you have any suggestions? The carb is clean and I can't detect any unusual wear. Thanks, Rick.

  6. The NOS cap came and fit perfect, thanks again for all your help. Here she is at a wedding recently....
  7. I went searching in Chevrolet forums and found this link. On page 42 are definitely my brakes. Good call Mr. Tin Indian. https://www.gmheritagecenter.com/do...information-kits/Chevrolet/1933-Chevrolet.pdf
  8. thanks Tin Indian, this isn't even a picture of my car, it's from the internet, a 33 Chevrolet restoration. Anyway, very curious how they ended up on my car given that they are less effective, and I can attest to that. The new cable is on its way to me, I'll let you know when I get it. My car is a Canadian manufacturer if that makes any difference. I have another issue that I wanted to discuss. The steering is very hard. It binds and is difficult to return after steering thruogh a corner. I made some adjustments to the steering box while the car was off the ground and got to a very good point. Very easy and smooth lock to lock, very little play. But when I put the car back on the floor the resistance was back. I read that other steering components may be at fault. Where would you suggest I start? How to diagnose? Thanks, Rick.
  9. BTW, should I be posting in the Flat Head forum?
  10. Gee, now I'm worried, mine don't look like either of these, I have 2 shoes but they are different sizes. And the actuator is like a diamond shaped nut that turns spreading the shoes. I will get a photo,
  11. Hi Rob, this is very interesting and also maybe troubling. I may have ordered the wrong part. How can I tell if I have Bendix or Steeldraulic brakes? The star wheel you refer to is that the adjuster? thanks, Rick.
  12. thanks for your help and sympathy guys, I checked the part no. on Ebay that Larry posted and found one right away for 14.00US. thanks again, Rick.
