Sadly no, as we have family plans that don't allow for it. But willing to pay for it and postage.

51-54 (55-56?) Hood Hinge Spring
#23

I had one of my hood hinge spring break on me, so looking for a replace if anyone has one laying around. I only need the spring itself, not the entire hinge. If you have two, I'll take both as I'd like to have spare in the event the other side meets the same fate. This one broke right at the end as I was closing the hood.

If you have one (or two) please let me know.

Looks like there are still dealing with some kind of flakly router hardware or something. So if it's goes up and down like it has been today, rest assured it will be back.

Thanks

The site was down as there was a data center routing issue at my host provider's level. It has been resolved now.

Thanks!

I've never had an issue with vapor lock even living in the inland valley of Southern Calif with temps north of 100f.


Usually, vapor lock occurs on the vacuum side of the pump as opposed to the pressure side of the pump.

Is the bend in your fuel line taking it too close to the manifold?

You can see on this early pic of my rebuild that the fuel line slants slightly towards the radiator before marking the turn towards the carb. This gives it a lot of spacing from the manifold.

Remember and mark which screw/spacer goes where as they can be different.

Was the kit above different that the kit offered by Sierra Grove Packards for the 727 conversions?

I know people reported that those kits either worked great or were horrible depending on alignment, as the kit didn't use eccentrics for the mounting plate, and therefore couldn't be adjusted to maintain concentric alignment.

Bookmark it in your browser. The Advanced Search is also what you want to use on the bottom as that is made for the Forum specifically as opposed to the site-wide "general" search.
