  1. PackardV8,<P>It is just the back plug that turns black. I just purchase these plugs last year.<P>The carb is an updraft.<P>I don't have the carb number of hand but I will get it tonight. You are right about the carb being simple there is not much for settings on it. Thanks for the link.<p>[ 04-03-2002: Message edited by: Tom Malas ]
  2. Pete,<P>The Carb that is on the car is not the original. It's a Linkhart and all brass.<BR>Do you think this carb can be jetted?<P>I just had it clean by a friend. I have not had a chance to put it back on the car because Mother Nature is not being kind to us here in the Midwest (burbs of Chicago). If I only had a three/four/five car garage. <P>[ 04-02-2002: Message edited by: Tom Malas ]<p>[ 04-02-2002: Message edited by: Tom Malas ]

    1939 Super8 oil filter

    I cut and paste the photo from a different site so I don't know what that unit is.

    Bravo Pete, I agree with on this your statement even thou I am a youngster:<BR>"But...if your "true classic" is like mine...presentable...but DRIVEABLE.......well...now.....tearing down the road in one of these engineering masterpieces........is TRULY a "classic" experience!"<P>My car looks good from a few feet away but up close you can see it needs paint and interior but for now I enjoy driving her to local cruise nights and runs to the local grocery stores. It feels wonderful when people come up to me and say you have a good looking car even thou the state that it is in.
