Re: Popping carb

Did you check for flatness on the new manifold set? Put a straight edge across the 4 ports, you should have no gaps.

Re: converting to 1970 v8 points for model a

The V-8 points are from a 289, 302 Ford V8 from the mid '60's thru the early '70's. Buy the best (more expensive) ones they sell, NAPA is a good place to buy them.

Re: Marvel Carburetor

I have same experience as Paul (O1A). I have rebuilt both Tillotsons and Marvels, the Marvels run better than Tillotsons, in my opinion.

Re: Bendix Drive Question??

Back about 8-10 years ago, some of these drives were made in India and were junk. I had one that lasted 10 starts.
The one's today are great, especially if you converted to 12 volts.
