There was some discussion about fuel filters and thought I would post these pictures showing an original type filter, and an aftermarket paper element AC and on AC filter. Note the one on the left.

The original AC filter on the left was a GF-97 but seems to have been replaced by the # GF-149 at some point. The non-AC original filter was a GF-200. I don't think I have one of those or a picture.

The 2 filters on the right are the sealed AC type (WIX 33039) and the open top non-AC type (WIX 33034). In particular note the carboard base. When installed the gasket goes over this base and the glass goes on top of gasket holding everything in place........but......the bottom carboard will disentegrate and filter will float to bottom becoming useless. You can keep filter pressed up with a spring, but the base still disintegrates and it is probably a good idea to periodically replace.

Go back to the original type filter and look at how sturdy the base is with the steel ring. As they say, the just don't make things like they use to.

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…
