When I remove my bezel, I tape the wood grain and use a rubber jar lid opener to rotate the bezel. What techniques are others using?

Carter starter switch on the carburetor
#65

I have a 1947 Custom Super Clipper (2106) and recently had to install a new part on my Carter carb mounted starter switch. The attached instructions to assemble the switch were kindly provided by Daytona Carburetor rebuilders. In the instructions, the bakelite guide component is one they can "print" should yours break...mine disentegrated.

I have included the instructions. Note carefully that the washers referenced are very rare and tiny and easy to lose!! I handled mine with tweezers. Though not clear in the instructions, they mount on the tiny pin in the bakelite guide item (3). When (5) the W shaped contact spring is pressed all the way down onto the end of the bakelite guard, the washers (item 4) contact (rest) on the bottom of the W shaped spring.

These switches were used on many cars up to the 50's. Unfortunately, no one has taken on manufacturing new one.

Yes,
They have all the blue prints for almost anything!! Best to pay a little more and get the quality our cars came with.

Is that hood ornament one of the "Egyptian" ones?

Fake battery case for my 6V optima battery

Rscott77x
My lead acid battery is a group 2e (the long skinny one.) I would like to put my 6V Optima in a fake group 2e case.

A friend told me about the fake plastic battery cases available in which to put Optima batteries so they look like a STANDARD BATTERY. I have not found such a case for the group 2e battery.

Does anyone know who (IF ANYONE) makes them for GROUP 2e BATTERY??

Dimensions GROUP 2E Length 19-1/4" Width 4-1/4" Height 9"

I got these symptoms with a 76 Oldsmobile. Problem was a pre-fuel filter in the tank.
Packard only had a fuel pickup. If you can, drain the fuel tank. Leave the drain plug out and then pour some fresh fuel in and see what it looks like when it comes out. This will tell you if there's gunk in your tank. Unfortunately, the drain plug often fuses with the fuel tank and it will never come out. On my current Packard, I had to remove the fuel tank and I turned it upside down to empty it. Then I put some fresh gas in it and swirled it around and then emptied it again. Everything came out clean so I knew it wasn't gunk in my tank.
