  1. Thanks for all the advice, it runs on with the choke all the way in now. Now I just need to figure out what the adjustment is to prevent it from back-firing once it's in 3rd gear...
  2. Hello everyone, I have a 1953, 3100, 216 Chevy Truck. The engine idles ok, but when I accelerate, the engine bogs down - sounding like it's sucking air. Here's what I've done so far: Plugged the vacuum hose leading to the wipers, Replaced the fuel pump, Changed out the old gas, Dipped and cleaned the carburetor, Checked the gap on the points. Please let me know what I'm missing... Thanks, Jon
  3. I finished cleaning the carb. Works better than it did, but not 100% off choke. I think it should be good enough for what I need. Thanks for the tips.
  4. Thanks for the feedback, it seems the low speed fuel jet is not working. I will pull apart the carb to see if anything is blocked.
  5. Hello everyone, I have a 1923 Dort with a 6 cyl. Falls engine. In order to the engine to run, I have to pull out the choke about a 1/4". I don't believe there are any vacuum leaks, so my guess is I don't have enough compression to generate the vacuum need to draw in the fuel without a partial choke. I currently have a vacuum tank between the gas tank and the carb. Would adding an electric fuel pump help, and if so where would I install it? Thanks, Jon
  6. The have an owners manual that states the clearance at .010"
  7. Hello, I have a 1923 Dort with a 6 cyl. Falls engine. I had posted a question last year regarding while smoke blowing from the exhaust. I believe I fixed that by replacing the head gasket. Now that I've replaced the head with the new gasket, I need to reset the valves. From my understand I just need to set the gap at .010 while the value is in a closed position. Is it that simple, or is there more to it? Thanks, Jon
  8. I drained oil, and yes there is water mixed in it. To answer Bud's question, the engine ran fairly smooth before this issue, but only with choke partially pulled (vacuum issue). It was not a regular runner, just around the farm and only a few times on the road. My assumption at this point is that the cylinder head needs to be removed and is most likely a blown cylinder head. This seems to be the most likely way water can enter the engine. Is there any recommendations on gasket material to make a new one? Located in West Bend, WI
  9. The vacuum issue was solved by plugging a leak that lead from the carb to the vacuum tank - right after this the smoke issue occurred. So, I then un-fixed the vacuum issue, but the smoke was still their. I haven't drained the oil, but I assume there is water in the pan. If this is the case wouldn't this be a head gasket issue?
  10. The oil gauge should be working fine, it had plenty of pressure before the issue. Their is no noticeable signs of leaking from the block, and there is no water pump on this type of engine. I think water is somehow getting into the oil pan and then leaking out the front where the seal may be bad. The question is, how is water getting into the pan? Could it still be from a failed head gasket around one of the water passages? Thanks
  11. Compression test ranged from 54-60 lbs. - The smoke that comes out of the exhaust looks white and does not dissipate quickly - it lingers. - Did not notice any bubling in the radiator, but a lot of coolant eventually leaked from the bottom of the block by the front of the pan after the engine cooled. - Also, I now do not have any oil pressure on the gauge.

Looking forward to your responses to help me figure this one out. Thanks
  13. What do you recommend the torque to be set at?
  14. Thanks for the advice, I'll report back on what I find.
  15. Hello I have a 1923 Dort Touring with a Falls Engine. A few months ago I submitted I question on why my car won't run without the choke pulled 1/4 way out. The responses let me to fix some vacuum issues, which seemed to help. The problem I'm having now is burning oil (white smoke) from the exhaust. This may be unrelated, but I never had this problem before fixing the vacuum issue. Thank you for any advice you may have. Jon
