  1. Thank you for your help. Theres a friend of the family who could help that knows these cars like the back of his hand but I try not to bug him as hes 90. He would be more than happy to help me out but I would hate to bother him
  2. Thank you for being so informative Jim. I plan on playing with the carb a little more once it gets a little warmer(I'm located in MA).

Thank you I much appreciate it
