Re: Speedway 9 super 7 carb.

Fuel pressure is 2.5lbs. Everything is brand new so nothing is deteriorated. The surface for the plug gaskets must not be flat. They had cheap plastic gaskets for the plugs which leaked, so I put...

Rehashing an old thread because I'm working on these carbs right now. Installed a 3x2 setup using the 9super7 carbs. Car ran fine no problems. Gave it back to the customer and after about 60 miles it...

Carbs

I'm trying to find a pair of Model T carbs. I'm just looking for a match pair that are rebuildable and don't cost an arm and a leg.

Re: What is the best carburetor for the Model A

A downdraft gets you much better acceleration but your fuel mileage goes down the crapper.

Re: The Perfect Patina ?

Little too much for me to say perfect. Perfect for me is original paint with wear marks on the window edge from some dudes arm resting and all the wear around the hood hinges and door edges. That...

Re: Building a holley tri carb set up

I agree with Ol' Ron here, Ive seen many cylinders washed from guys putting too much fuel to a stock motor just for looks.

Re: Why Fiber Timing Gears

I was driving my son to school, engine braking coming down a hill and the cam gear stripped off 3/4 of the teeth. Not just one part but 3/4 of the entire gear. Had her towed home and replaced it with...

Re: Why Fiber Timing Gears

I just replaced my fiber gear with another fiber this spring. I only used the fiber because I had one. If I had to order one I would have used aluminum.

Re: Why Fiber Timing Gears

Of course Henry could have made quiet gears if he wanted to, but there are a lot of other factors when putting a car into production at a large quantity rather than just can they do it. Timing chains...

Re: Building a holley tri carb set up

If you want show and not performance block off the outer 2 carbs. It will run on the center like stock and be much easier to tune.

Re: Why Fiber Timing Gears

Also the fiber is much quieter. The metal gears in 1929 were not quiet like the ones today. Plus remember your Ford if well taken care of would last you at least 5 years.

Re: model B distributor

I cant remember where but I read Ford actually never drilled out the shaft bushings in the B distributors. Every one Ive pulled apart was not drilled.
