Nah, don't do that!
Then you'll have to install one of these in front of your tri-carb setup.
Nah, don't do that!
My '57 855 still has one of those, mainly because I can't find an adapter with the correct threads to screw into the carb, but I guess it is ok because the gas tank is rusty and needs to be sealed so I have to dump the rust out of the sediment bowl all the time, the '57 630 has an inline filter but it has a different carb (one has a Marvell just can't remember which) someday when the Comet is "done" I need to do some work on old tractors and maybe sell one because I have too many.
had one of these on a 53 ford truck with 6 banger & it kept getting little curled up pieces of green plastic or rubber in that glass bowl. I finally figured out that it was shavings from a garden hose. I was siphoning some gas out of it & when I pulled the hose out the sharp edges of the tank filler spout shaved one of the beads on the outsides of the hose partially & still hanging on the hose & it curled up just like the pieces I was finding & it was a AH HA moment the old farmer that had the truck so many years must have always siphoned gas for his tractor out of the truck because there was a lot of the green curls in it!
Yes I am pretty much done stripping that area down mostly will be light sanding, by '64 Mercury/Ford decided to not make the joints so clean and filled on the sedans, the trunk to the window has a visible joint (not sure if I could make it smooth or if it is designed to flex somewhat so it would crack filler) Most of the leaded spot between the roof and sail panel was not rusty at all just the top flat part of the roof so it just got sanded with 80 grit or so, I was not trying to remove all the paint unless I had to, like on the roof, so mostly on it right now I am thinking DA with 80 or 120 and shoot it with epoxy then follow with a couple coats of high build and then block sand it, again not looking for perfect (even though I can be a bit OCD at times, my wife says perfectionist) I know I will be fixing any low spots on the roof (I know there are few small hail dents up there, fortunately when the tornado and severe hail storm that came through it had a padded cover on it, tornado took it away, but there was bound to be some over the last 55 years)
It was saved so you could share it with others Damage pics remind me of a recent visit to look at an old parts car for a friend. I robbed parts off it back in the 80s. It's still there but a tree next to it uprooted during Hurricane Laura and it fell parallel to the car. Can't get the passenger side doors open without a chainsaw but it's still there. Didn't find what I needed that day but shared a good time with an old friend.
Just replaced a MotoRad radiator cap that finally gave up the ghost. They are a good company based in Israel.
