  1. I'm thinking on adding an electric fuel pump as a backup. Does any one have a suggestion as to the type or model (size?) I should use?
  2. Mr Carbking, Jon lighten up. You have given me hope. I was beginning to wonder what the hell was going on. I'm not a babe in the woods but I'm pretty new to this older machinery. I knew if I threw this out there all of you who have replied would lead me in the right direction or give me a clue. For that I'm grateful. I'm hoping the rebuild kit has that little clip that holds the needle to the float is in there, that's what I really need (of all things). Mine went missing and I fashioned one up myself out of as thin a wire I had. But I don't know. By the way mine is a "three on the tree" , with overdrive. Pretty funny Rocketraider. I've bought several books and subscribe to Skinned Knuckles but I'm thinking joining AACA is one of the smarter things I've done. What with the experience and knowledge on hand, thank yiu guys
  3. HI Jon, all I can give you is what's on the carb and data sheet I have I hope the pictures helpll I can give you is what's on the carb and Data sheet I have. I hope the pictures help.
  4. That sounds feasible and an electric pump has been suggested. I don't think it's vapor lock and I'm not that savvy. But when it does happen I have to take the bowl cover off and fill it with fuel I keep in the trunk for that purpose. then I'm underway again. After leaving the gas station that last time I had to do that twice after only getting down the road maybe a quarter mile ,if that. The second time I moved the needle a few times and filled the bowl and was able to drive the 3 miles home.
  5. I just got the fuel pump back from being rebuilt but OK , I'll try anything. Thank you Joe
  6. I'm hoping someone out there can give me a solution to this ongoing problem. My fuel bowl goes empty at the most unopportune times. It happened the other day just after I filled up and left the gas station. I have cleaned out or have had rebuilt everything in the fuel system from the gas tank forward. I figured it might be the needle valve since I found it to be stuck a few times. I fashioned a wire clip to the needle to connect it to the float thinking that would solve the problem. I warmed up the vehicle and drove down my driveway to get my mail. It idled there a few minutes and when I got in to go back up the driveway it died. Dry again. I can't find a new needle and seat for the carb. I really need some advice from someone that may have had this experience. I'm lost. The carb is a Holley 1901 model. EAC 9510 E2 The carb was rebuilt last season. Also I can sit and rev the engine as long as I want and that's not a problem either i

  9. you lucky bastard. I'm envious!
  10. I'd give ANYTHING to have my Margie of 40+ years back. She made home a place you wanted to be and made my life worth living! Great story Thank you!!!
  11. I have a 1952 Merc. totally original and have always kept it that way (except wear and items of course) The wheels are red.
  12. Thanks Frank and m-mman. That's what I had to do. When I removed the switch , voila!
  13. Thanks much Frank. This is the first time I've had to deal with something like this and don't want to cause unnecessary damage.
  14. Hey guys, I bought a new lock cylinder for my 1952 Merc. I need to know how to remove the old one first. I've looked in books and manuels from that era but can't find instructions for that. So when all else fails I call on the masters for their knowledge
