Been thinking about changes for a while now but finally broke down and ordered a two barrel progressive carb set up from Langdon’s. Looked into a Carter YF set up but as was explained to me by an expert from The Carb Shop to do it right was a pretty extensive project.  Supposed to be here by Friday. Hopefully it will warm up enough to swap things over in the near future.  Thinking about a 6  volt alternator but shipping from the supplier that I found searching here is about 20% of the cost of the part so I am exploring other options.

Keen to know how it performs, I'm assuming its the weber 32/36 STYLE of carb conversion you are referring to.  I am also considering this as well, keep us updated.

 

I have the 6 volt alternator in my shed now, its more like 60% postage cost for me...:(

I'm currently dummy fitting it for alignment, which is a PITA on the my '37 Dodge, was much easier on the '28 Chrysler.

It looks like I need a different shaped top bracket, the one for the generator does not look to work.

Yes using the 32/36 . Most likely be  a little while before embarking on this but will keep you informed. Supposed to be set up for individual car so I will see.  As far as the alternator goes the shipping from Quality power is $40.00 from them to me, about 25% of the cost of the set up. So I am looking locally to see if anyone here has access to one. Local rebuilding shop is very good so I am going to talk to them. Generator charges ok and no issues but if I take a night trip might be a problem..

I was just on ebay and I found several 6 volt positive ground black alternators with the bracket and free shipping for around $174.

 

If you have a good alternator or small motor shop they can change the internal ressiter on the Delco 10sc Alternator very easily from what I have read

This is the describtion for the item

Alternator Black 1 One Wire 6 Volt Positive Ground 60 Amp, Bracket, 5/8" Pulley

I run a single weber 32/36 from langdons on my coupe and it runs great!  Took a lot of trial and error to get it to run perfect but once I did it was a huge improvement over the rebuilt stock carter BB I had.  I did end up going with larger jetting than what tom has in the carb out of the box.  I run langdons exhaust headers and a pcv valve set up I put together.  Without bigger idle jets, it ran too lean for me.  Langdons instructions also says a fuel pressure regulator is not needed but my set up seems to run better with one set to about 4 psi.  I have already put 32,000 miles on this setup in just 4 years.  I drive this 30 miles to work and back 3-4 times a week on the freeway with stock 3.9 rear end.

I get about 12 - 13 mpg but im spinning at 3000 - 3300 rpms on the freeway cruising at 65 mph - 70 mph.  She's thirsty at those rpms.
