  1. This is my first time using the forum. How did you use the email? Any other tutorial help would be appreciated. jim
  2. Need left front shock and lower rumble step
  3. Well, this situation gets more interesting as I keep checking. Got the new copper plug wires and installed them. No improvement! But as I put my timing lite on each plug wire to check firing, I again notice 3 is not steady and 8 not at all, as before? As I am fussing with the wires I notice sometimes 8 will fire. As I keep fussing around I find that if I push on the dist towards the block, it fires just fine. There must be something wrong in the dist. Take off the cap for a closer inspection, see nothing wrong. However i notice that the points rub has stopped EXACTLY ON A HIGH POINT. something
  4. Done that, no leak. Remember , it ran ok prior to the float change jim
  5. 1934 packard left front shock and lower rumble step wanted
  6. One positive thing about this adventure, I have become extremely efficient at removing a carb! The tubes have been replaced and look like new. I somehow have to determine ,for sure, is it carb or elec. the timing lite on each plug wire at one time indicated they were all firing perfect. The next time i did it, no 3 was not consistent, and 8 wasn’t firing at all. Changed plugs with the same result. So thought maybe it was the carbon fiber wires and ordered new copper ones. Waiting. remember it ran ok for the last 3 years, until I changed the float. It misses and runs poorly at all rpm’s, so I
  7. I’ll pull it off today and check it out, thanks jim
  8. Thinking about this further, as long as the opening to the exhaust pipe is sealed, the condition of he tube you are referring to shouldn’t matter, should it?
  9. Good thought. The modification was done when I bought the car, so never checked. I had it repaired on the last 32 I restored a few years back, as it was bad. I know it can be a problem. Will check it out, thanks.
  10. This is my first time at this. When I first get in it says I have 9 reply’s, but I only see 4 ?? Also, what is (add tag)
  11. Rod- can run it at high rpm in the garage and it doesn’t run out of fuel. Since there is some miss at all speeds I am wondering know if it could be electric. Will see after new plug wires installed.
  12. Can run it at high rpm in the garage and it does not run out of fuel
  13. There is no tube. It is plugged at both ends. The car ran fine until I replaced the float. Took the carb apart again to make sure all 6 jets are open. Checked plug firing again with my timing lite and found that 3&8 are. Not firing consistently. Question the plug wires although they look new. They are however carbon fiber. Ordered a new set of copper ones .should get them mon or tues and will see if it makes any diff.
  14. It has been removed and plugged. Odd thing is, I can run the car in the garage from idle to 45 mph (per rpm), and it is not too bad, slight miss, but when I take it on the road, it immediately goes bad and I am not sure I will get back. Have put my timing lite on each plug wire to view firing and none miss a beat, so I’m sure it is not elec. your thoughts? jim
  15. That’s where I’m at.ran good before I changed float,which was sinking and overflowing. That was the only change, and now it runs so poorly I can’t drive it??
