  1. I've rebuilt it twice. The second time with a kit and video from mike's carberators.
  2. It seems i have to keep tweeking the fuel/air mixture on my p15 to get the idle to smooth out. Any ideas?
  3. Casper, i hope you removed the lower part of the inner fender to gain easier access to the valves.

    Gas filter

    I'm talking about a clear plastic filter between the pump and carb. I never see the thing full of gas.

    Gas filter

    Thanks but my question was should the filter be full of gas?

    Gas filter

    Tried to take my p15 out for a spin. Started stalling and died. Pushed it and pumped the clutch to get it running. I had ran the battery down. Should the fuel filter be full of gas as the car is running. I have a little gas in the pump side of the filter. I rebuilt the pump a couple years ago with a kit that was supposed to be impervious to ethinal. I have a new tank and fuel lines.
  8. Why do you think this car would have that? By the way the heater works great. Every pic I see for a p15 shows that spot on the firewall blocked off with a piece that could be punched out. This was attached to it.
  9. the heater in my 48 has an air intake on the firewall. It has a flap in the duct. I haven't seen another one like it. Been trying to find out what connects to it. It has had in the past a dryer vent hose. I think there is supposed to be some kind of duct work going to the radiator wall.

    I know about the cowl vent. This is an opening with a butterfly flap. Left side of the firewall near the heater hoses. I'll post a pic. Can someone tell me whar is supposed to connect this to the radiator wall? I have been using a dryer vent hose.
  11. On the p15, what goes from the fresh air vent on the firewall to the radiator wall. Right now i have a dryer vent hose. Seems like there should be a square duct of some kind.
  12. I turned on my original am radio the other day and nothing but hums and whistle. That meant my fm converter didn't work either. I paid a good bit of money to get the original working. Back square 1.
  13. I used a kit from mikes carbutator parts and his video. Very helpful. Simplest carb i've ever rebuilt.
  14. I have a 6 volt pos ground alternator on my p15. It was there when i bought the car.
