Oh man, so many folks would've thrown the toys outta the cot and gone away.

Tony, I had a funny feeling, you'd have to test the theory.... you did....

Good on ya..... yes mate, ya Mum and I are very proud. Please take one gold star, stick on ya forehead and wear it with pride.

Tony you did good, my friend, on an intellectual level you probably don't even realize! LOL. This was a non-trick question and a trick question at the same time. I knew you guys would go all over the place with this one. This is one of the "too deep in the trees to see the forest" questions.   If you just think about the fact one car has Bigger tires, and think about how that affects the entire car (the forest) and not get caught up in specific details like gear ratios, etc. (the trees) it is actually pretty simple.
So Congrats again to Tony for stepping out of the trees to see the Forest! Your intellectual genius came roaring through when you realized --> Yep, stick those bigger tires on the car and put a measure stick up next to it and it raises the car a bit! 

Genius, Man... just pure Mad Genius! Mamma, would be proud, indeed!!

Most of us were trying to re-invent the wheel on this one!

Where do the flashers go in my 64 Deville Convert.  I'm thinking that's why both turn signals stopped working.

Where is the best place to purchase good quality motor mounts/trans mounts for my 1964 SDV? I see that Rock Auto has them for $8 and change, and others for $24 and change. Big difference. Is there a better place to buy them from?



Fuel loss in Carburetor

Posted by Ian Osborne on December 29, 2018 at 11:24pm 16 Comments

Lately if I haven't started my '63 in four or five days it seems that the carburetor has gone dry. The starter cranks for an extended period of time and the engine doesn't come close to firing. I have resorted to pouring a little fuel into the carb to save the starter and battery. This gets it started and it runs fine. It also starts fine after sitting a short while - a couple hours or so.

The fuel pump is new and there is always fuel in the glass bowl of the fuel filter. This, along…
