I have a Special 46S, compound carbs. I bought the car 2 years ago in South Dakota and ship it to the Netherlands.

Till now I never drive the car, it needs a complete body off restoration.

I working now 2 years on it and when everyting is going OK then after winter time I drive to the technical inspection to become licence plates.

As my name states, I have a 1941 56C. What a beauty. Clutch is geeting weak and needs to be replaced. Already have the parts. It backfires when coasting. Not sure why. Pulling oxygen in from the exhaust system? It needs to get a new roof as well at some point. And, the vacuum mechanism to pull the roof up and down is not working properly. It has some pull but not enough to dod the job.

Fun!

Best,

Jan

Jan,

A quick and easy way to check for intake manifold leaks is to spray WD-40 or starter fluid around the carb & intake flanges while the engine is warm and running at idle. If it speeds up, you found the leak.

I haven't looked at this thread for a while, so here's an update on mine. I've had my '41 Roadmaster on the road for about a year now, and I'm loving it! The interior is not yet fully in, but hopefully in a couple of weeks it will be ready to install. I've put about 1,500 miles on it so far, and though I had a few "teething" troubles, it's been fun to drive.

About a month ago, my wife and I were going to a local cruise night, and it started running very bad, and then I smelled gas. So I stopped and opened to hood, and a stream of gas was shooting out of a small hole at the top of the rear carb. As soon as the fuel pressure went down, it stopped though. I let it cool off, and determined that the rear carb was completely full of gas, so I cut a small piece of gasket material to block the gas line into the back carb, and drove home on the front one.

What happened was one of the floats got a leak and filled with gas, so the needle valve never closed, and just kept filling the bowl up. Fortunately, I had a spare float, and all is now well again!
