47 Chrysler Windsor

Recommended Posts

I recently purchased this 47 Club coupe.  The car runs very well & I have replaced plugs, plug wires& distributor cap. When the car sits for 3 or 4 days or longer it takes some time to get it started again.  It will always start but it turns over approx. 15 times before it catches.

I haven't installed a electric fuel pump yet but after only 3 or 4 days I would think it would fire up a lot quicker. Would this be a carb problem or?

II keep a squirt can of gasoline handy. When one of my cars sits for awhile I loosen the wing nut on the air filter and fill the gap under it with gas and let it trickle down then tighten it back up. works every time.

Remember that, by Federal law, permanent wiring for an electric fuel pump must be attached to an oil pressure switch.


However, you can put a push-button override to energize the pump and fill the carb. Once the engine starts, oil pressure is present, and the pump would then be energized from this source.
