    Oil in the gauge oil line?

    I had to change the rubber hose part of the oil line to the pressure gauge. None of the line had oil in it. I've been getting funny reading on the gauge as well. Should I unhook the line at the gauge, put a hose on the line and run it out of the car, and then start it to get oil into the line?

    Oil in the gauge oil line?

    I'm getting 60lbs at cold start up with 30wt. Once it warms up I have 20 when driving at 55mph and 0 at 30 and below. Engine has only 5 or 6 hours on it.

    Does it stick through enough that you can drill a hole in it and use a cotter pin?

    readjusted timing and carbs.

    Since I got the points bounce fixed I readjusted the timing a bit and then had to resync the carbs.

    My Scarebird Kit install and a few ? 1948 Dodge

    I put in all 4 discs and kept the original MC. Yes it's a single not a dual. I won't drive it as an everyday car so I'm willing to risk that.

    What paint to use on wheel rims?

    They are tape. Can't find a pinstriper within 200 miles of me that wants to do it.
  14. I and a couple of other people think that the reason my coupe runs poorly is because of points bounce. With the point set that I'm using there seems to be no way to anchor the flat spring to two places. It anchors to the screw where the wire goes but how does the other end press against anything? There seems to be very little pressure keeping the points in contact. They open really easy. This is the set that I'm using. https://www.oreillyauto.com/detail/b/bwd-3123/ignition---tune-up-16776/points---condensers-16855/ignition-breaker-points-12492/6aeeda0d49cf/bwd-ignition-contact-set/a81/2585686/1947/dodge/custom?q=points&pos=2 Anyone have a photo of how it's suppose to be? The manual photo isn't clear but from what I can see there';s nothing to compress the spring.

    Need a photo of installed points.

    The trip to town and back went with no problems. 55mph for 9 miles each way. Big grin.

    California Peaches

    I would love a case of those. Lol. Store fruit up here is either green or over ripe. They can't seem to get the haul timing correct.

    I am very happy to say it runs sooooooo much better now. As Plymouthy Adams said I most likely will not swap out the dual carb for the stock config now. Have to do a little bit more tweaking but It's way good enough for a trip to town this afternoon. Thanks to everyone that helped. It is much appreciated.

    I had mine powder coated and don't regret the cost at all.

    Thanks for the confirmation Don. I appreciate you taking the effort to do it.

    Need a photo of installed points.

    and what does the tab go under so that tension to close is put on the points?

    Need a photo of installed points.

    I just tried it under the copper and it does work that way. I will remove mine and reinstall. Thanks Merle. It never crossed my mind that it would go under the copper.

    Merle I thought the same as it has a tab on the spring that looks as if it should go somewhere. See photos. Where would it go? There is no gap under the small brown insulator for it to fit under. It's a flush fit.
