It went on the block with a beginning bid of $10,000 and sold for $36,000. Yah....wish it was me tha...

Re: Driving Molly with a Zenith 2 Carburetor verses a Weber

The Zenith Carb can't help itself. The fuel in the fuel bowl is not contained, and when wave action occurs in the fuel bowl, the fuel is pushed out through the main jet and cap jet, flooding the carb. and stalling the engine. The trick is getting the float at the right level where the fuel in the bo...

Driving Molly with a Zenith 2 Carburetor verses a Weber Carb

After driving Molly for 2 years with a Weber Carb, It was definitely a new experience with the Zenith 2 Carb. The Zenith Carb gave me some trouble initially. I bought in on Ebay as a rebuilt (not) for $140.00. It was cleaned and painted and that’s about it. The float wasn’t even attached. I attached...

Re: Fire Truck Start Success!

Myself....I would take the radiator to a radiator shop and have it backflushed and checked that all the tubes are clear. Secondly, check your distributor and point setting. :)

Re: terrible screeching in motor

It's more than likely your distributor shaft is just rusted into the head. put some rust freeing agent or oil around the base of the distributor and let it sit awhile and then just pry it loose. Whatever tool you use, pry on opposite sides of the distributor at the same time using a gentle rocking m...

Re: Mallory Distributor

The old Mallory distributors used a mechanical advance system using counterweights in the distributor that advanced the timing as the engine rpm increased. Rotating the distributor at idle to the correct timing for your engine, and as rpm increases the timing will increase up to 24 degrees ( most ol...

Re: 1930 Rear End Rebuild

Got some good info from you guys!
Isn't there an old adage that goes "gold is where you find it", or something like that! :D

Brian and Maggie; I'll keep that idea open.
Russ ditto, there's a small aerodrome just outside Prescott. Where's your home base?

Re: 1930 Rear End Rebuild

I want to thank all you guys for the good wishes. Don’t know much about the Discovery guys. I’ve spent several days on line gleaning demographics for the state of Arizona and all its counties, cities and towns. That is why I chose Prescott in Yavapai County. Temperatures are good and it’s halfway be...

1930 Rear End Rebuild

Molly has her newly rebuilt rear end installed and she’s doing great. No more “thunk” when accelerator is released, and no more backlash and gearing noises. She’s running almost as quite now (in high gear), as my F-250. :wink: Some of the information I used in rebuilding were contributed by a few ol...

Re: poor brakes on our early 28 .

You can keep guessing and throwing Band-Aids on your truck, or you can get a proper publication/manual and do a complete Inspection of your braking systems. It appears you have compound problems which will keep you going in circles. :(
