    Carb Kickin' My Butt

    Check the float bowl shut off valve. It might have a little dirt that is preventing it from shutting off the flow of gas resulting in the float bowl overflowing.

    Fuel pump block off plate

    Okay I give ☹️……..where can I buy a fuel pump block off plate for our flathead 6 engines. I've tried eBay, Summit, Jegs, and more and I've STRUCK OUT. I was running an electric fuel pump through the mechanical pump on my 39 Chrysler until the oil pump started taking on gas !!!!! NOT GOOD I have 3 more Flat 6's with elec. pumps and I want to abandon the mechanical pumps. HELP ! Do I have to make my own ?

    Fuel pump block off plate

    Thanks guys. I'm really surprised no one is making them. I'm busy making Dash Glass. I know....I'll make them out of glass 😉 kidding. Check me (grandpadodge) out on eBay if interested.....

    Speedometer lube time

    That's because the speedo pictured is a Dodge truck. I'm not familiar what the same vintage car speedo looks like but I have see some with a felt covered hole that will take a couple of drops of oil.

    Speedometer lube time

    iT'S EASIER TO JUST REACH UNDER THE DASH AND UN SCREW THE CABLE FROM THE BACK OF THE SPEEDO. THEN PULL THE INNER CABLE OUT BUT PROTECT YOUR UPHOLSTERY AND CARPET CAUSE THE CABLE IS GONNA BE DIRTY.

    1937 chrysler visor question

    In most cases, and maybe all, the visor needs a center support to avoid having the visor take to the air while driving. Can you post a photo of it ?

    Speedometer Dial Is Tilted

    It looks like the clear plastic disc is warped. hum......I wonder if a hair dryer would un-warp it ? This place sells new clear plastic speedo disks that might work for your car. dcmclassics.com

    Speedometer Dial Is Tilted

    Yes, setting your drill to reverse will do it. How about posting a photo of your speedometer.

    HOOD BUMPERS ?

    How about drilling some hole in the bottom of the hood lip and then installing some of the bumpers that plug into the holes.

    I think you meant a wheel puller. This is a harmonic balancer.

    Paint - Base/Clear or Single Stage?

    Yup.....It's stocked regularly with trout for the kiddies. It's part of our Nevada County Fairgrounds.

    Paint - Base/Clear or Single Stage?

    Well …….what about the pond and the green green grass of home.

    Paint - Base/Clear or Single Stage?

    I painted both these trucks in my garage about 20 years ago with single stage Centari by Dupont. I still own Old Yeller and it looks like it did right after I painted it. Being garaged helped.

    Brake Light broke!

    To test your brake light wiring just put an alligator clip on both posts of the brake light switch. If it lights you know what to do.

    $450 to Paint a Set of Wheels?!

    You got it right Don ! That is Lisa. The third time is really the charm. I made sandblasting look like so much fun that she gave me her drink and told me to sit down.
