I know the heat riser is not really needed where I live. But, I plan to enter my 1947 Clipper in judging in the future and was wondering if anyone had a source for a rebuild kit to get it working. It is currently wired open and the engine performs beautifully (recently took a one day 220 mile trip!) but thought I should pursue getting it back to as close to original as possible.
I am changing the exhaust manifold gasket soon and thought I should look into this while the manifold was off the car.

Any comments or suggestions??

How did you install them? in pieces or as a unit? I have this job coming up myself...
Thanks

I use a Stabil ethanol seperater product. Recommended by a guy with a great collection.

Yes gas is cheaper (thank God) but don't want to empty 20 gallons of gas...a little dangerous and messy.

I have to take a trip somewhere...but not too far at 10 MPG!!

I checked the service manual but all the terms did not make any sense to me..loader? Unloader??
Is it a matter of loosening the big nut, turn the split shaft and tightening the nut?
All help appreciated

Just got the car. Is removing the fuel sender just a matter of peeling back the carpet, exposing the fuel sender and removing it?

Thanks...
