  1. Would it be possible for you to send me another picture of your dual carb linkage? I need to see all of it, front to back. Both carbs as well as the cable attachment. Thank you and merry Christmas, Jim.

      Good morning Jim.


      Here's a few more pictures.  If they don't provide what you're looking for let me know and I'll snap a few more.


      Merry Christmas!

      Thank you. That is exactly what I was looking for. 

  2. Jim Shepard, You wanted to know what Jeep MC I used, here is the box. I don’t remember what year it was. I hope this helps.
  3. Well, finally getting my truck back from the shop. My friend had it in his shop for over a year trying to work on it, but he got so busy he didn't have time to finish. Next week I'll take it to the muffler shop for the exhaust. Then I'll try and tackle the "rev" problem. BKHLER noted that the linkage was installed incorrectly, so that is where I'll start. Hopefully that's the problem and I'll be set. Fingers crossed.
  4. You might have a good point. Your’s makes mine look incorrect. I’m going to redo mine and I’ll let you know how I make out.
  5. Jim, Off the top of my head I cant remember. I have been accumulating parts literally for years until I had time to install everything. I think I still have the box so I’ll check the part number when I get home.
  6. Thanks for your thoughts. I’ll check it out as soon as I get home after Thanksgiving. I’m spending time with my sister’s family in Broken Arrow OK and my grandson from Army Ft. Sill OK.
  7. It’s been a while since I’ve posted something but I follow regularly. I have had my truck at my friends garage for over a year installing my front disc brake kit from Rusty Hope, the dual master cylinder from a Jeep as well as my dual carb setup. We got it running but it idles at full throttle. We tried adjusting the linkage but that didn’t help. I rebuilt the carbs a few years ago and we’re getting fuel to both carbs. Other than that I don’t know what to add. Any thoughts or questions that might help me diagnose the problem?
  8. Kevin, your Erie agent is correct. I should have been a little more clear. Erie’s antique vehicle coverage will only cover vehicles that are eligable on their standard auto policy. Flat beds and larger trucks are not eligable on a standard policy. They have to go on a commerical policy. Cars and pick up trucks are not a problem. I hope that helps.
  9. I’m an Erie agent and they now offer agreed value coverage for antique and classic cars. I also sell classic car insurance through American Modern Insurance. I have had some claims experence with them and they were great. No hassles and no deductibles for either collision or comprehensive. One of the disadvantages to American Modern is the no towing restrictions. They also require that the vehicle must be stored in a fully enclosed, locked garage. Erie insurance does not have these restrictions. Hagerty, American Modern and Erie have very similar rates. You have to consider everything and not just look at the premium. The lowest premium is not always the best policy.
  10. It’s something like, what do you get when someone says “hand me the drill”???
  11. Looks like you’re going to be very busy. Good luck and take your time.
  12. I purchased one of his kits a number of years ago and just now getting around to geting them installes. I found the kit a lot easier to install than I thought it would be. The only thing I had someone else do was the tapping of the spindals. I took them to my local machine shop but I don’t remember what the cost was. I did upgrade to the Jeep master cylinder. I’m still working on it so I can’t coment on exactly how it will work but I don’t anticipate any issues. I’m also adding my dual carb set up. I had Charley build the intake and exhaust manifolds for me. They fit perfectly. I can’t wait to get it back on the road. To sum it up I don’t think you can get a better kit anywhere than Charley’s.
  13. I am finally getting some work done on my truck. About five or six years ago I jumped in the truck to take it out after a long winter in the garage. I pushed in the clutch, took it out of gear, put on the brake and the pedal went all the way to the floor. I played around with it for a while, got disgusted, put the cover on it and forgot about. When we were forced to close everything down earlier this year it gave me time to start working on it again. I have a friend of mine that has a garage that offered to help. I had previously put together the entire front axle/brake assembly from Rusty Hope. So we just pulled off the old axle and installed the new one with the disc brakes already installed. We installed a new dual master cylinder with a proportioning valve. While we were at it I decided to go ahead with the dual carb/exhaust set up. We are still working on the fuel lines but should be ready to fire it up soon. I can't wait. I'll try to post a video when that happens.
