Re: Engine Stalls at Stop Signs

Gene,
If you have a 'high' idle speed more likely you have an air leak some where .

Re: Engine Stalls at Stop Signs

Nice research Ed.

Could you explain how you 'set the idle mixture and idle speed to specifications?" You passed over that point quickly,

Re: Original interior?

Certi,

My best guess is that the door panel & seat upholstery might be from a 1960's LeBaron Bonney kit. I had a similar seat pattern from L-B in 1966 for my 1930 Coupe.

From the location of...

Re: Hood Painting Question

Suggest to Bro to mask off those areas to prevent excessive primer build up. Just before applying top coat, mist a coat of primer one those areas. I like SEM Self- Etch primer for this.

Thanks John,

So it safe to assume most replacement 'A' diamond blocks started life with the 'B' cam & lifters ?..... But no external way today of knowing short of dropping the pan.
