  1. Yup, I'm thinking, 1957 Oldsmobile. Thanks!
  2. What vehicle is this from?
  3. Did Pontiac use an artillery wheel in the 30`s? I know Chevrolet did but wasn't sure about the Pontiacs.
  4. Not saying that this is the best way and probably not in the top 100 so use it as a cautious suggestion as the carb is sensitive. But..... one time I needed to get fuel to the pump so I took a plastic spray paint lid and drilled a hole so that my rubber tipped air nozzle would poke through it. I placed the cap over the fuel filler neck and held it down and gave the tank a shot of air from my compressor. Just a quick pull of the trigger was enough pressure to get the gas moving. Just remember these carbs only like 1 or 2 psi.
  5. I don't have photos, but here is the parts diagram if it helps.
  6. Good, hope it helps you out in your quest. Hmmmm, I do possibly need a few pieces. I'm not sure if I still have pics of that car any more or not. I'll have to check.

  8. I thought I remember seeing a little bit of green around the bellhousing/clutch cover area but that was a few years ago and could be mistaken. Unfortunately I did not remove my manifolds as they looked good and worked properly. I have a few more pics that's shows some of the manifold flanges but not much. Which ones do you need to know about specific? I might be able to get some pics for you tonight.
  9. Chris, you probably can't see what you're looking for in this pic bit I thought I'd post it just in case.
  10. Deac, take some pics and post then please.
  11. Is yours a 90 degree fitting? if so I had trouble finding one like that. I used one that was a little different. This is similar http://www.studebakerparts.com/studebakerparts/store/s/agora.cgi?product=brakes4& also jeeps used some. https://www.4wheelparts.com/Brakes-Steering/Crown-Automotive-Brake-Fitting-JA000557.aspx?t_c=65&t_s=22&t_pt=101655&t_pn=CROJA000557&utm_source=google&utm_medium=cpc&scid=scplpCROJA00055790941&sc_intid=CROJA00055790941&gclid=EAIaIQobChMIwdCP6uXZ1gIVkYhpCh0GbgTDEAQYASABEgLLFPD_BwE
