Self-Starter article on the 429 engine series

Posted on May 18, 2013 at 10:31am 3 Comments

I would like to obtain a copy of the Self-Starter's article on the 429 engine series.  I think it was originally published in the July 2003 edition.  Does anyone have a copy to share or any ideas of how to obtain a copy?

Thank you.

Loud air moving sound within carb with cleaner removed

Posted by Dave Fehrle on March 23, 2024 at 3:23pm 8 Comments

While checking my Carter carb with engine running, I took the air cleaner off and there was a very loud hissing sound of air. I placed a piece of paper over the carb and it didn’t move up or down, is this normal?

Vintage Air AC

Posted by Chase on March 21, 2024 at 5:55am 0 Comments

Hey everyone, has anybody done a Vintage Air AC/Heat setup in their car? I want to bypass the old vacuum setup and go with a Vintage Air Gen 2 model. Before I get started, does anyone have any experience with this? (Which model to go with, do’s and dont’s, etc.) It looks pretty involved. Any and all info/pics would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

I would prefer to be as original as possible. Thanks

There is a restoration service called The Horn Works who my son…
