thank you all for the responses. The aftermarket air cleaner I;m using is a simple paper air filter 4" x 2" stacked two high. not very big.

1952 200 deluxe with 327ci dies when warm

I have a 1952 200 deluxe with a 327ci engine, 2brl carburetor 928S. when the car is warmed up it dies. Compression test seems fine. vacuum is with in specs.
Odd thing is when I remove the aftermarket air cleaner. the engine dies. if I set up with air cleaner off and put it back on the idle is way too fast. any ideas? should I buy a rebuilt carb?

Thanks for the information. I have been working on this 52 since I got it back in December of 2021. had the trans go out a few months ago, which I rebuilt and have been working on the gas issues for a few weeks. so other than a few gallons of gas I have not paid attention to when I filled it up. I just put 12in electric pusher fans on the new radiator I put in. I also changed the gas to high octane 91%. It seemed to help a little. now I'm dealing with heat and possibly stuck float or percolation issues. I think carburetor rebuild is next in order. what fun!

Ok so I can't get non-ethanol gas in town, so I tried premium 91 octane and it kind of worked. the vaporization point seemed to have changed. I also changed out the fuel filter which was pretty restricted. Now I'm installing electric pusher fans to keep the temp down around 160-170. I still think I'm having vapor-lock issues or maybe a stuck float, because it still dies when I come to a stop after driving and the filter seems to be draining when hot. I will most likely rebuild the carburetor and check for insulated spacer. I believe the 3/8in stock spacer is there.

Thanks for the response! since I blocked off the old fuel pump and ran the main line well away from the block, I don't think it's the inlet side of the fuel filter that is vaporizing! I don't know if the manifold spacer is phenolic or not. I'll post pictures of what I have.
I've drained the gas out and will try non ethanol gas. maybe with a lead additive. Just got to work my way through it.

ok so I put in an electric fuel pump. car ran great until it warmed up then it dies, if I wait 5 min it will start and run for a couple hundred feet and die again. gas appears to be bubbling inside the filter just ahead of the carburetor, Vapor Lock? also I'm checking out the gas. has anyone else had this problem? temp is about 175f, but sure seems hot! Gas is regular unleaded probably with 10% ethanol. there is no radiator leeks, timing is good although idle is also effected when hot.
I have a 160f thermostat. I'm thinking the gas is percolating in the float bowl
is there a after market spacer for the standard 2bl carter 784S carb? or should I just run special gas?

Ok, I know this should be listed somewhere but I'm tired of looking. can anyone tell me what the PSI and GPH on electric fuel pump should be on a 1952 200 deluxe with a 327ci and two-barrel carb! It is converted to 12v!
Thanks,
Mike

Hi All,
I have a 52 200 deluxe, my throw out bearing is a little noisy and I was wondering if anyone knows what bearing to press on the collar? mine is a 1686-1 but I think I've seen replacement bearings that are a little newer, don't know if the collar has to be machined for a newer bearing or if there is just a good replacement bearing?
thanks,
Mike
