Actually, if I remember correctly, Hudson and Nash became part of American Motors.

Interesting article although it mentioned the introduction of the One Ten. It was actually the introduction of the Six that was probably meant as the 110 didn't come out until 1940.

The one I just rebuilt but haven't yet installed is 550 miles away so I'm going from memory but I recall it popping back quickly. Maybe one of the Easamatic specialists will chime in.

I'm glad to hear that you were able to get them out! As difficult as it was, trying to replace them would have been even worse.

It should pop back fairly quickly so be sure that your pedal arm isn't binding in any way and that it is lubricated at the pivots.

Also, when you had the unit out, were you able to press the diaphragm in my hand? It would be tight but not so hard that it can't be pressed. Did it return immediately?

The problem I have is not being stuck anywhere but rather that my shop visits are so few and far between and when I am there it is only for a couple weeks. Since it is so rural and a half-day trip into town if I need something, I have to plan in advance what I want to do when there, then having everything waiting for me when I arrive. That means that I just can't take time to make gaskets or special tools so have to commission them in advance.

The simple solution to retrieving it is to send it to my shop, then drive it home once you are able! (Just kidding as I have no space left but I sure wish I did!)

They are 550 miles away at me Oregon shop and we are on lockdown here in the Bay Area of California but I plan on going up as soon as Iím able.

As for your Belair, I canít speak for that but the neighbor where I used to live had an identical one in his 1952 Cadillac. They were made, I believe, by AC but I have also seen them with the Carter logo.

The ďfactory typeĒ was referring to the regular glass bowl filter that attaches to the inlet of the carburetor and the line from the pump connects to it. They were a common accessory that is still available but with a modern replaceable element rather than the washable ceramic element of the original. I have several new one at my Oregon shop if you canít find one more quickly.
