If I remember right it was in a rollover accident, hence why the top was being completely rebuilt.

Flack, isn't that the car we saw a few years ago in Long Beach?

The float should stop the incoming fuel unless the fuel pressure is too high.

Are you sure the float isn't sticking in the down position when the fuel is drained out of the bowl?

I used Valspar DTM (Direct to Metal) Epoxy Primer, and then a high build primer over that.

Dezi, yes for sure. He's located in Barlet just off of 59. I'll send you the info.

Here is another video he just sent me of getting the radio to actually signal seek. This was a test to make sure all the controls are functional before the conversion is done. He recommended I replace the volume knob as there is a dead spot in it.

Ralph (the Radio Guy) was able to get my signal seeking radio working within 30 mins of me dropping off. It needed a new vibrator and the speaker was shot. That being said, it would still need to be recapped and converted from 6V Positive Ground to 12v negative ground. So the cost for that would be more than that actual conversion to an AM/FM/Bluetooth with a working wonder bar.

Here is a video of the radio hooked to an external speaker:



Here is him testing the wonder bar motor to verify it was fried:



This radio I acquired was out of a box of parts and was from a 1953 senior car. I changed the knobs to match my Clipper.

All 51-54 engines are going to be gray or grey if you prefer. Except for 1954 359, which is bronze. Period, end stop. If someone claims otherwise, then they are incorrect.

Since I only go through about two tanks of gas per year on the Clipper, I religiously put Stabil in the tank to help prevent old fuel varnishing. Once I had forgotten and let it sit for way too long (6+ months), and it gummed up my accelerator pump to point that it blew out the side of the leather seal.
