Metering rod for Carter WDO 531 S

Josef Lichtenberg
My 47 super clipper carburator is fitted with a wrong metering rod. Somebody of its previous owners designed a carburator of different carter parts. Could anybody please push me in the right direction were i can buy spare parts for this carburator? In the "Daytona" overhaul kits this part is not included. thank you very much in advance, BR Josef

thank you for all your thoughts and helpful links. i have disassemble the waterpump and found maybe the reason. with the last assembling of the pump i have used maybe to much sealing silicon. you can see i have closed one hole in the watercircuit between pump and engine. i will take care with the new pump and use less silicon on the seal. in any case if this hole free, i will have more circulation. thank you, best regards Josef

Water manifold tube in 356 engine

after rebuilding the engine in detail. i am still not 100% content with the watertemperature. every water channel was cleaned with with a lot of care. the radiator is rebuild and one of the heaters is complete new. the engine is running without thermostat. i read somewhere that the water manifold, tube made of sheet metal, that is in the block, must look a little bit forward over the surface of the engine. in direction of the pump. this is important for the efficiency of the waterpump. but i can't remember where it is described in detail. does anyone know how far the pipe must be over the engine surface? i guess somethink like 0.12 inches? what do you think , best regards Josef

after a lot of trials, now i have fixed the problem. to remember. I had some fluid leaking in the area, banjo bolt, junction block- brakelight switch. i have changed the junction block, the banjo bolt nothing realy helps. i have changed every time with every dissassembling the copper seals. but it was still leaking a little bit. talking with different experts one idea was to make a "heat treatment with the copper seals" this brought final the success. I heated the rings with a torch until they glow, and cooled them down with water. this made the copper more soft. made them able to seal better with lower torque. it looks like even with all new rings they are sometimes to hard for this kind of aplication.

Dear Wesley , please have a look on this photo. the switch is assembled with the hollow screw in the brass connector, together with two break lines. connected to the master cylinder. in the part book the brass part is no 01.010. i have destroyed one brass thread and one of the taper. I guess there is no safety way to repair the thread. because of the high pressure in the system.

Dear all, does anyone have a source for the brass connector on the master cylinder? it connects the brake light switch and brake line to the cylinder. the part number on Packard 1.010. I guess this is no unic packard part. I have found very similar at Willys Overland, but they have got not the 7/16"-24 thread.
i attach a photo from my broken part.
thank you very much in advance, BR Josef

yes, thank you very much. all these thoughts are very helpful. my cylinder is overhauled, so the thread can be worn out. as well as the thread of kanter may not fit exactly. i will test the idea with the teflon tape quickly. it is easy and the resistance of teflon is very good. thank you very much for your help ! best regards Josef
