    Carburetor Paint Follow Up Question

    I never saw a restored tractor without a painted carburetor. If you want color, have it powder coated. Paint and gasoline do not work well with each other. Mike

    Fuel pump pushrod

    I have been using electric fuel pumps since the early 80s on most of my engines. The one on my 78 Chevy P/U came in extra handy when I got a load of watered gas at a local gas station. I was able in a couple of minutes to empty the tank of fowl crap and get reimbursed from the station for more...

    Holley Carb Spraying Fuel Externally ?

I called around and found a used bowl at a speed shop. I drove to the shop, thinking "what could go wrong". Changed it out...

    Holley Carb Spraying Fuel Externally ?

    I stand corrected! I was only thinking about the heat required to melt 50/50. Mike

    Electronic choke power supply

    Bob, the other end of the yellow arrow wire connects to the wire at the green arrow. It is merely a jumper connection. Mike

    I believe the green or yellow locations would be fine. Just confirm they are "key on" 12 volt sources. Mike

    Correct 2 barrel carburetor for 1962 Plymouth Belvedere

    Yes. I would recommend you reinstall the auto choke setup if the exhaust cross over is flowing properly (gets hot quickly-they can plug up with carbon if engine is burning oil). Mike

    Fuel pump

    I had issues with my 65 Coronet 318, alcohol gas evaporated from the float bowl after 2 days so I used a Carter electric pump. Depending on days sitting I hold the momentary switch to a 6-8 count, pump throttle twice-slowly, and she starts right up. Mike
