Does anybody know what the deal is with the caps under the cowl? I was cleaning out a mouse nest and found that the passenger side cap was cracked open. What are they there for? Does anybody have a replacement for sale?

Those help to seal the engine bay fumes from going into the vent cowl.

What would be the harm of installing the cowl without these?

Yes.. just pops in.

Yes, that's the cap I'm talking about. I'd like to keep the mice, debris, and water out. Does the cap just pop into place? I'll send you an email tonight about purchasing one as well as some other little parts.

You are talking about the large plastic cap under the cowl to right center in this picture. I am not quite sure what they are for. Perhaps to facilitate construction of car. If it is for other maintenance in the shop manual I have missed it. I do hove a box full of these. I I an pick put a very nice one for $5 and ship for a couple bucks 1st class if you want a nice one.

It's not the easiest spot to photograph, but here is the area I'm talking about.

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.
