Going up a 14% grade for 0.4 miles in a 103 year old car.

Your car seemed to handle the hill without a problem.  Are you using the vacuum fuel feed or are you using an electric fuel pump?  I always hear stories of the old cars running out of fuel on long steep grades because the vacuum fuel feed was unable to provide enough fuel.  I wonder just how factual those stories are.

I am using the original vacuum tank. I used to have a problem with it but it turned out to be the crappy modern generic "Made in India" fuel filter I bought, I switched to an old Carter filter and have never had a problem since, and I drive all over the place.
