  1. It has been a very long time since I posted any progress on my project. Its now running and sort of driving. That was a big hurdle to get done. Those first few trials very stressful wondering if I forgot something and the engine will blow up and it was all for nothing. Luckily it runs and sounds great. With two kids and a busy job I havnt had much time to spend on it in the last few months. Like all projects I have found it to be far more work than I expected, but thats the whole reason of doing it! The wood is slowly coming along, but also far more detailed work than I could have ever imagined!!! I like to keep a oil stain on the floor under it to keep the dust down?
  2. Thanks for the info!! I finally now know what I have. I wish it was a slightly more common Carb. I believe I found the problem of the gas. As usual the simplest answer is usually the right one. I checked the float and needle with very low pressure way back. Since then I had replaced the fuel pump and now with increased pressure I now have rechecked and that needle is not sealing at all. I have a feeling it will be far easier finding a different carb than parts for a oddball carb. Thanks for all the help everyone!!
  3. I dont, but thanks for the lesson. I would never have thought of that. Something only learned the hard way.
  4. When its all together and I hold it upside down so the needle is seated and blow lower pressure air the needle seats tight. I assumed this was the problem, but it seems to seal fine.
  5. These are the pics of it when I took it off, No screw.
  6. I thought the same, but the other end it a needle that seats into something? Im guessing an adjustment for?
  7. There was no real problem with it. I was just looking to clean out the crusty old gas and replace gaskets. I had the whole motor apart so it seemed fitting to clean up the carb as well. When I bought the car I only started it a few times before I began to take it apart. For having 75 year old plugs, rotten wires and 2" of caked oil covering the whole engine it ran decent(except for the bottom end thump that has been dealt with). The car had been mostly sitting since the 70s. started once a year just to keep it going.
  8. I have a couple of questions for the Tillotson experts out there. I had been told this was a JR5, but when my rebuild kit arrived it was clear this was not a JR5. Everyhting looked pretty good so I decided just to clean everything the best I could and use it as is. It worked fine before so it should be pretty simple. well, Last weekend I finally had time to try and get my 29 Chev running. I found quickly fuel pours out the carb. I assumed the needle and or float were to blame, but they both appear to be functioning as they should. I found the fuel was pouring out the accelerator pump spout (red circle). when I block this with my finger the fuel comes out the hole above it (green circle) and with both blocked off fuel comes out the brass spout(blue circle). When I push the accelerator pump down an awful lot of fuel gets pumped out. My next question is the second photo. what is the system with the orange circles? the two spring loaded parts act together, but what I dont know. Both parts refused to come undone so I decided to leave them alone before I broke something. Lastly what is the adjustment in the yellow circle? From all my questions you may be able to tell I know a little about carbs, but not enough to pinpoint when things go very poorly. You might say I know just enough to be dangerous. Any help would be very appreciated!! Also what model is this? Thanks!
  9. Motor is all back together and back where it should be. Hopefully it will be running in the next few weeks. I have the wrong fuel pump, but for now it gets the job done. I may leave it since this is how I Got the car and its part of its past. I have another question for the experts. What is the hole in the block near the back below the manifold? When I got the car it had a wooden plug in it. Im guessing thats not how Chevy designed it. choose files... Click to choose files
  10. This indeed is the rear main. Thanks to you I now know what it loos like. I searched the VCCA, but didn't find the info there for this particular topic. I have found so much good info there. The rod is gone so as you know the ball is gone as well (at least I know now). Since you said most people drill it out should I just put the cap back as is and not worry about it? I dont think Ill be driving up to many hills.
  11. Hi everyone I have yet another question about my 29 engine. I have been soaking the cap and blowing out the drain hole many times over the last month. cleaner always comes out clean yet I can shoot fluid both ways which would lead me to believe the check ball is stuck or just not there. What would you recommend as my plan of attack?
  12. When I took my engine apart it was so greasy I didn't notice, but now that im starting to put it back together I found the spark plug holes in the push rod cover are wide open with nothing sealing them against the block. After looking at pictures of other 29 194 engines most cars have a different cover. Some did have the same as mine. My gasket set I ordered has round cork gaskets that don't seem to fit. Is mine a early style that was realized it was a bad design and quickly replaced? or am I missing some parts? The engine is original to the car and it is a Canadian car. As always Thanks for the wisdom!!!
  13. I like the way you think!! The air cleaner was on it when I bought the car and even a nice show car can have parts like this to show its life.
  14. I was in the process of ordering new gaskets and whatnot for my 1929 Chevrolet 194. After seeing some images my carb looks nothing like any of the examples. What do I have? The engine is original to the car, but that doesnt mean anything else is. Thanks everyone.
