  1. Thank you, that was my thought too.
  2. Thank you. They did keep it off the ground. The drums themselves were full of dirt and sand and what used to be brake shoe linings. But the rest of it was saved. Will have to buy a few pieces but she should come back to life.
  3. Thank you. Both were trashed and had to persuade them off the axle.
  4. Going to need new drums. What year were these off of? Thanks
  5. Yup, I'm thinking, 1957 Oldsmobile. Thanks!
  6. What vehicle is this from?
  7. Did Pontiac use an artillery wheel in the 30`s? I know Chevrolet did but wasn't sure about the Pontiacs.
  8. 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.
  9. I don't have photos, but here is the parts diagram if it helps.
  10. 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.

  12. 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.
