Re: What is this carb?

It's what's on my '29 RPU. The Tillotson that was on it leaked. I like the GAV system on the Marvel...seems a 'sturdier' setup. Easy to rebuild too....parts obtained from Renner's Corner.

Fuel bowl quirk?

Yesterday I replaced my original cast iron sediment bulb with a repro glass style bowl. I had tried 3 cast iron bowls, but all had a small 'weep', so decided to be safe. Every time I turned the gas...

What is this part called?

While at a recent show, I took pics of a nice '29 RPU that was 'restored'. Where the hood latches are located there is a sort of 'cover' over the frame section that runs all the way to the front...

Well, looks like I'll try the grease trick and use modern hose clamps. Spent the morning filling the 'pits' in the lower pipe, hooking it back up, then tightening down hard on the old clamps. Tested...

Re: opinions on 'lifts'

It requires you to pressurize two small cylinders adjacent to the larger hydraulic cylinders with 40-50 psi from an air compressor. Other than that, mine runs on 110v to activate the hydraulics. You...

Re: Speedway windshield frame
