  1. I agree with first born, I did 12 volt generator an gauges as he said. 6 volt starter worked for awhile then switched to 12 volt hi-torque starter. Bright lights fast crank over then did Affordable EFI and all Is well would drive across country maybe not on freeways.
  2. Hey First Born you asked for an update: After install started right up, did not have to do any adjustments. Removed vacuum line to wiper motor as I now have electric wipers, I thought idle was a little fast and instructions said to check for vacuum leaks and that did it. I have put on about 200 miles and runs cool in 90+ temperatures. Temperature gauge stays below center even after long idle, very happy. I’m heading to Mn and 51 will rest in Az till fall. I plan to convert my 56 this summer.
  3. Yes, had to give up the pedal switch couldn’t figure out how to keep it. May convert my 56 Century also, had the carb rebuilt put would be nice to leave the choke issues behind.
  4. Attached 3 pictures, it is a 51 super converted hood to front opening. The aluminum duct you see is connected to a 4” fan to cool the carb in hot weather to prevent vapor lock. I can remove the duct now as cool gas is circulating from tank to throttle body and back to tank. Affordable called this system: 1900-1 Custom TBI For Buick l-8 263 Engine. Total cost delivered was 885.00.
  5. I will check on what I put on and post some pictures ASAP
  6. Recently added Affordable EFi to my 51 Super convert. Starts and runs great, added aluminum radiator also. Will update as I put on some more miles.
  7. I called Norm at Affordable EFI , he said they were very busy but is working on it. Looking forward to getting it installed. Thanks
  8. My units were made by Newport Engineering, I thought I bought them Julianos but that may be wrong.
  9. Bruce “aka” first born sent me a notification and I can’t find it. My email is: dh6345@frontiernet. net Sorry, don’t know my way around this site very well.
  10. Took the 51 convert for a nice drive Saturday, was not starting very well realized my big 12 volt battery was 5 years old and not spinning it over fast enough. Put in a new battery and it starts right up. Waiting for my efi setup to come and hoping it make the starting and running of the old car much better.
  11. I need mustache grille bar, main center casting and ends, let me know if you have parts that are good. Email: dh6345@frontiernet.net
  12. I put electric on my 56 and not real satisfied with the sweep, think it should be more, but don’t know what the vacuum sweep was. Bought kit from Julianos. Put same kit on my 51 and is ok. Have not driven either in the rain.
  13. I have used Blue Magic carpet cleaner with great results. Example: I spilled battery acid on my boat carpet and it cleaned it completely, also worked well on a off white headliner in my 56 Buick.
