General Discussion / Re: Holley Carb Issues

I don't want to bother him. I am sure he gets 100's of calls all year long from people asking questions. I don't have the time to wait to send it out. It could be weeks or even months. Also, I don't WANT it restored, I like it as-is condition wise. Just want it back the way it was. Hoping for the magic answer. D

General Discussion / Holley Carb Issues
« on: June 10, 2023, 03:52:15 PM »
Well, I took a ride of about 50 miles in one of my cars. Car ran great! 10 days later, got in and fired it up and it won't idle. It WANTS to, but dies in about 10 seconds. It's a 4150 780 Vacuum secondary. If you try to keep it running it does a suck-air kinda thing and goes shss shss shss shss and dies. I got in and revved it out of the idle circuit and kept it running and went down the road. Pulls great, floored it a couple times and it went like hell. Came to a stop sign, down shifted, got into first and pushed in the clutch and it died right before I came to a stop. When you try to start it, it takes ALOT of turning over without giving it any gas and then finally it starts. I looked in the carb and it is squirting gas in well. But that's when I am racking the throttle. But after letting it go back down to idle it dies in a few seconds.
I pulled the carb. Pulled the bowls and metering plates. Installed new 6.5 power valves, cleaned it all up and blew it out. Installed all new gaskets. Set the float bowl height. I didn't do anything else, like pull the needle and seat etc. I reinstalled it and it did the EXACT same thing. I did something I don't normally do. And that is pull a part from a great running car and use it for testing. BUT, I did that to isolate the sitch, and BINGO it ran great. Drove it 70 miles to car a show and back, with no issues. So I KNOW it's the carb.
 Question is.. What do I do next. I don't have the knowledge for complete tear down rebuild. I would rather not send it out for a rebuild and have a 100K car sitting dead for who knows HOW LONG.. Hoping someone here can point me in the right direction. HELP!!! Danny

General Discussion / 1968 Z/28 Pistons Value
« on: June 02, 2023, 05:03:02 PM »
This is a set of Original Survivor 1968 Z/28 Standard bore pistons. Part #3927172... They are all consistent in wear showing no major damage and come with wrist pins. I can't find any online for sale by themselves. Any idea what the value would be? Thanx... Danny

I am not going to go into a bunch of stories. But my friend moved from Napa, CA to Colorado. He was a retired police officer. When he unpacked all the boxes. ALL his badges, collectible law enforcement memorabilia, accommodations, trophies were gone. You can put them BURIED in a giant box like he did. They go through EVERYTHING. And I have heard some stories about parts changed with car transporters. I bought some cars to bring back to CA and did it myself. The last one was from Wisconsin to CA. If it is possible, you can buy an enclosed trailer at Trailers Plus for $10,349. Sell it for $8,500 after project? And borrow a truck? I used a suburban on the last 2 or 3. I really hate to see ANYBODY hire a transporter. Especially one that has been through the brokered system. I wish you were close to me, we could do it together. Good Luck!... Danny

Good Luck on your search. I am wondering if some white cars are found, and you go look at them, how are you going to determine if it was the one you used to own? Maybe you get lucky and whomever owns it, it will show YOU as a previous owner in some paperwork. Those pic's look like they are shot from a 2nd or 3rd story window. Danny

Note that is the hood in the 3rd picture, not fender. I was just showing some panels stamped alike. That is the back left side facing out. D

There may be documented factory original panel cars with no stamps. I am sure there are some that didn't get stamped? D

Here are some shots on each fender and hood. All stamped 19. Have several cars and all have stamps on both fenders. Danny

General Discussion / Holley Bowl Gaskets

Anybody know where I can find the part number for soft Holley bowl gaskets for the bolts. I hate the solid white nylon ones. I need some that are slightly soft. Danny

What is the Dupont product you speak of?... D

I just texted Jerry a few days ago. I asked if he had a secret stash. He said nope, all gone. Danny

There were many cars that did not get the second hidden VIN. The car I am working on now does not have one. I looked around the area and it's not there.. Danny
