  1. Both carbs were built by George Asche and mounted to his aluminum intake. I put them on out of the box. I've been trying to adjust the speed and mixture screws with one carb and then trying to match with the other. I will have to search for vacuum leaks. If all else fails, I guess I will check float bowl hights and jets. I'm running a mechanical fuel pump. Just thought that maybe someone has an adjustment procedure that I'm not doing.
  2. I've been working on adjusting the idle. It's just not quite where I want it. It's still a little rough. I am wondering if anyone has come up with a good procedure to adjust duel carbs. I am using the tool in the picture below to sync the two carbs. Any suggestions will be appreciated.
  3. Another great bbq as always. Tim and Steph a gracious hosts. Amazing sunsets and rises and view of the Sierras. Loved waking up to the sound of grazing cows. Here is a photo of apple orchards not far from the ranch. See you next year.
  4. I'm sorry. I was incorrect. As Don and Ed say; it's the difference in the flanges.
  5. The problem is the crank to flywheel bolt pattern.
  6. I disconnected it from the rear and wired it to the frame.
  7. You better be at the BBQ next year Paul, or Tim and the boys will come down and set you straight. 😊

  9. I recently used the U-Haul tow dolly without any problems. I did disconnect the drive shaft just to be on the safe side. I pulled a 47 Dodge sedan.
  10. On the top of a YouTube video is an arrow. Taping on it will give you the option of saving the link and pasteing or sending it via email or text.
  11. Merle made this great video. Could help.
  12. I just adjusted my valves. I did it while engine was hot and running. It’s nice to hear the sound of the tappets as you are adjusting them. I would recommend using longer wrenches and wear long sleeves and tight leather gloves so you can grip the wrench and feeler gauges. I also separated then feeler gauges from the group, which made it much easier to handle. Just make sure you keep your gloves on. I made a hasty mistake and paid for it!
  13. Yes, I like the grill guard on the international
