    Backfire through oil breather....

    backfire should come out of exhaust. BOOM ! if it is, look for distributor problem ... if combustion is happening in pan, you would have many other problems . so my guess is valve not seating [ sticking valve or valve guides worn] , lean mixture [ accelerator pump ,vacuum leak] , retarded timing [ dist. timing , worn timing chain ], in that order. not enough info to diagnosis properly.

    this way that way , you can still operate float with top off .. just had top off carb. on truck I recently acquired.

    The float stuck up is going to stop fuel, ..IE: dry bowl.. take air cleaner off look down carb, KOEO , is fuel dripping on throttle plates?.. yes/no, if no fuel present fuel pressure OK .. if yes than you have too much fuel pressure and/or trash in needle and seat... from your symptoms[?] the float is stuck up, just remove carb. top and float clip remove float, remove needle and seat . clean clean clean I'll bet the needle sides are dirty and sticking . clean seat ,I use scrubby pad strip ,stuff it in and turn with small screw driver ,be careful don't scratch with screwdriver,. reassemble needle ,float and pin... hold down on float clip with finger and push on float over needle and seat, does it move freely up and down.. install carb top .. your ready to go.. hope this makes sense.. todays fuel doesn't age very well..
  8. gray silicone [semi-rigid],, is the greatest , a light skim coat is all thats needed... over the years I learned to let the silicone dry to about 75% hardness or about 20 minutes .. no goop squish.. the oil pan at the top has a couple of problems .. somebody didn't let silicone dry enough and the block wasn't oil free.. Also keep out of blind bolt holes, it will ruin your day..

    4 spd swap

    not having to double clutch every gear and get rid of the u joints. I was hoping the sync. trans. would shift easier at least in the top gears.. ok can you tell me what you know about this crash box trans. not afraid to learn. searched forum / no comparison on both trans... am I going from bad to worst?

    4 spd swap

    Hi, I have question on a B1C trans swap, will '49 non-synchronized angle drain plug trans swap with a '52ish synchronized horizontal drain plug trans? the bolt pattern looks the the same. I looked up input shaft , they look the same ... any thoughts? thanks

    Help !! truck shipping

    I thought about a road trip but it's cold on the way, I mean like serious cold. , could not sleep in truck. I'am a florida boy ,, don't own any coats.. B1B keven, Glad the truck is out of your hair, sorry for the delay ..It's been an adventurer. I did learn not to ship vehicles, if I can't drive there I don't need them.. Lessons are fun !! It ended up costing 50 cents a loaded mile..$1500 total, 500 more than planned ,but 500 less than uship.. But it's on the way thats good.
