  1. check out the build pics https://roadstershop.com/galleries/1965pontiac/ frosty i found its a mercury racing engine https://www.mercuryracing.com/engines/automotive.html
  2. i have watched this video a number of times and i still cant get over the quality of this build!!! and those custom 8 luggers !!! they would look soooo good on my 64 !!!
  3. jim, you should be posting your 62 up for the 2022 calendar !!!
  4. super cool ... come on Andy, you sooo have to tell us all about your Ta !! i can see alot of love and money in that shine !!
  5. yes your right JustA..... Jim, my be a good time to upgrade your old externally regulated alternator to a in built unit, way more robust and tidy's up the engine bay nicely
  6. Certainly go get that lotto ticket Dwight !!!! you where soooo lucky that valve will be okπŸ‘.... maybe change ALL the retainers ??? for what they are worth ?? maybe the titanium ones would be a good pick https://www.cbperformance.com/product-p/1506.htm
  7. Hahaha hahaha I hope that flat bed tow truck is 454 petrol Chev powered πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘
  8. hi Jim, i would take the alternator wires off and leave the battery connected over night, if in the morning the car starts you have found your fault πŸ‘ i think from what your saying that the alternator is at fault,( it should not buzz) but just for the heck of it, check that you dont have a boot , glove box light staying on too πŸ‘
  9. i feel that Frosty is a bit of a mopar lova
  10. Now that’s a cool run πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘

  12. JustA take your one to a machine shop and have them mill off one pull wheel mate
  13. I wish ringo !!! It will be a long time before we can get to Canada again ! Yip got to be a pommy thing !
  14. A pair of attached weights help time the opening of the auxiliary valve and close it once the secondaries are no longer in use. The size and shape of the weights, and even the angle of attack on original AFBs could be different from engine to engine, and this is one reason why any new off-the-shelf carburetor usually requires some extensive tuning to run as well as an OEM carburetor did. Even so, the weighted flap is most assuredly not easily adjustable, so those interested in more serious street/strip performance may be advised to step up to the later AVS-style Edelbrock, or original Carter AVS, with its adjustable secondary air flap. another words Fitzy, if your going to build a stroker engine, you will need a custom carb, the stock one wont cut the mustard... but from what i read, the oem afb will be prefect for stock application
  15. We are currently up in Auckland to see our oldest daughter and got the opertunity to try poutine !!! loved it πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘
  16. Yes ! now I know what you mean ! its a double flap with weights on it above the secondary butterfly’s aye
  17. Gees fitzy just watching the news , they have shut the boarder with oz again for the next 8 weeks !
  18. Yes, I had read this one , it’s a really good explanation of the afb πŸ‘πŸ‘ that little T is a bi-metal strip that opens when the carb is hot and lets more air in to stop a over rich situation I see yours has that too πŸ˜€
  19. Welcome Matt you so have to do a thread here and walk us through the restoration mate
  20. Out with the old and in with new! Today i have replaced my 30 year old kulhman gauge and hand pump with a Milwaukee "tire inflator" It will do the job way quicker and less mucking around ,i use this water gauge and pump to pressure test my gas pipe-work installations and have done for...ah about 30 years ... its time to use technology ! Did i mention i hate change !!,,, but i do like things that make life easier !.. so this new little machine sits easy with me.. i stuck a 3 amp battery in it and pumped up 2 tires on the cortina as a test and its really cool. bet most of you already have one of these super cool Milwaukee's!!
  21. Good call mate I will try them , and I think justA has found some on eBay . Am at work at the moment, so I will have a hunt a little later
