  1. Sorry my "spelling corrector" not working....
  2. Finally Carter carburetot is rebuilt, back in the car and car is running fine(could't find a youtube video about how to rebuild it, but I put it back together the way I found it....I dont know if this was correct in the other time...jets, missing gasket, needles position,etc). I have a question....how do I know if the advance distribuitor is working propely? is a way how to test it, without to remove it from the car? About 6 or 7 months I purchased one refurbished and installed it in the distribuitor, but my line got damaged (thanks Beemon for the tip!!)...don't know if I have a vacuum leak. About the body restoration, I started to work with the doors jambs....sanding and priming them. Next week will try to put the doors back.Thanks for the help in advance, Daniel.
  3. Will this work for a 1956 Buick with Carter carburetor WFBC choke heat tube/line? Carburetor Choke Heater Tube Kit 76850 SHARE: Choke Heater Tube Kit Product Description Dorman's Carburetor Choke Heater Tub Kit is conveniently packaged with everything needed for a complete installation. It effectively repairs or replaces the choke stove on most vehicles with an automatic choke, and/or may be used to repair or replace broken choke heater tubes on most vehicles with hot exhaust activated chokes. Replacement provides a smoother idle upon start-up.
  4. Hi everybody!!! I need some advise....the vacuum advance tube(capillary tube? connecting distributor and carburetor) got damaged(cut)....Any advise on how I join the tube to the stub that is sticking out at the carburetor? welding it? braze? or a piece of rubber or plastic hose will be ok to join the tube again? How important is this? Also, the heat tube for the choke is broken....I read at the forum that can be fabricate with brake line....any advise(line size, nut, how to remove the broken piece from manifold ,without removing manifold from the car ??) I think that all this together is making my car difficult to start (but at the same time the car was working properly before) Hope this is a clogged carburetor or accelerating pump not working . Today I will remove the carburetor and clean it (Carter WFBC)Thanks, Daniel
  5. Good idea....electric fuel pump location? close to the tank or close to the carburetor?what kind of electric fuel pump do you recommend? Thanks Jon.
  6. No Jon, I know it....but will be a lot easier to remove the air filter housing to spray!!! Thanks
  7. Hi John!! no I haven't.... I will try tomorrow. Also I modified the pedal starter with a push bottom. Thanks again, like always !! Daniel
  8. my choke is not working....missing the tube attached to the manifold
  9. I'm having troubles with my original air filter oil bath in my 1956 Buick Super with the WCFB Carter carburetor( if I don't start the car in a few days will not start unless i spray starter fluid in the carburetor) and I'm thinking to replace it with a paper modern one. Also, i'm thinkink to drill the top of the air filter housing (5/16hole)and place a tube direct to the carburetor mouth so I can spray starter fluid without to have to remove the air filter housing (plugged close when no use ).Not very good idea . Does anybody done this? My car is a driver and I don't care about authenticity but performance. Every air filter is for a 5 1/8 inlet or neck carburetor but my is 4 7/32(??)...should I use a carburetor adapter for my car? or there is a air filter housing with a base that will fit my Carter. Replace the original oil bath air filter is a good idea? Thanks in advance, Daniel
  10. Thanks!!! I'm doing great.... Buick restoration will resume next week!!! Finally in Central Florida starting to feel the fall weather (tomorrow will be 70 degrees!!!). Already started to organized my tools(did nothing for almost 4 months....heat in Florida this year was terrible!!), Purchased primer and paint (gray body with white roof) and will star to practice with a paint gun....hoping to finish the car next year. Thanks for asking.
  11. This is when a got the car...1982, October. Castle gray and Dover white....Thanks Keith.
  12. Hi John!! Glad to be back....I was very scared and worried for sometime last year....didn't have time to work in the car...but after the last MRI result, I feel good again....ready to finish the car. The original color is Castle gray, that is a metallic color....since will be my first paint job, I prefered an easy paint that metallic....so I choose this Dove gray, that its very similar but non metallic single stage acrylic urethane.
