  1. I ordered the kit from CARs yesterday, either way, i'll look into that electric option as I plan to drive the crap out of this side note: who makes a really good line bending/flange tool? And I appreciate the offer Fr. Buick!
  2. '55 WCFB most of the old fillister top screws are buggered and a few are cross threaded, where can I buy new? I've seen chevy stuff on the bay like Eckler's but not sure what I need as far as thread pitch and all that.
  3. Ahhh, perfect! Thanks one technical question, my choke butterfly is really open when it’s cold, not having much carb knowledge, I have to hold it closed to cold start the car, how is this adjusted?
  4. Finally started this 322 I bought after it was dormant for eight years, choke wasn’t working then I noticed the missing screw on line on the backside of the choke, what does this look like and where should it come from? Take a very careful look at these pictures and also tell me if anything is missing or wrong looking in a mechanical way
  5. My grandfather was a mechanic at Chick Norton Buick in Tulsa for over 30 years now that I have a ‘55 special, I’d like to find whatever might be out there but especially something for the car like an old tag topper or dealer script as long as it’s in a vintage style, say 50’s or older, his son Jim took over in the late 70’s I think, not interested in anything that says Jim Norton send a pm please

  12. Can’t find a grommet to fit these for a push in type breather, the flange is too deep for a regular grommet or a twist on breather, am I just sol? these are going on a ‘55 322 keeping the stock oil fill tube in the valley, the goal is to rig a proper pcv system to eliminate the draft tube
  13. That's a slick little incognito filter, I like it!
