Maintenance / Re: Q jet inlet fitting leak
« Last post by TRLAND on August 22, 2016, 04:26:02 AM »
Make sure you're using the correct gasket on the inlet fitting and then after snugging it down gently hold that nut with one wrench while you tighten up the fuel line fitting. A very small amount of anti-sieze on the threads only of the fuel line fitting will allow you to tighten it up without leaks and prevent galling of the threads. If you tighten too much at the carb you will crack the inlet and never fix the leak.

I think L48 had 3/8" lines and L30 had 5/16".  I don't know if there were exceptions but the experts here may chime in.

The washer, I commonly see from the local driveshaft shop here when building or balancing shafts, tacked on exactly like that.

I'm guessing Kurt, with that question, and the original question that started this thread, that we don't have a copy or draft of the change notice?  Are there any factory records at all about the wheels?

That does not look like a factory weld.  I would venture to say there was a repair and a rebalance in its life.

Like the rallye green and short spoiler.

Maintenance / Q jet inlet fitting leak
« Last post by myblue67 on August 22, 2016, 01:37:09 AM »
I continually have  leaks around the fuel inlet fitting. Carb has been rebuilt. Threads are good and using a new 5/16 x 7/8 fitting. Carb runs great but can't seem to keep it from leaking. Any tricks?Question....

Was a 5/16 fuel line standard on early 67 L48. w Qjet by Carter? Non OEM fuel pump has a 3/8 outlet With an reducer. Just curious if issue originates at the fuel pump.

That's a lot of balance weights. I don't recall seeing the washer style weight before....

That is a question - what was in the original change notice? I never did any for a set like this, but since the offset and size are the same (same fit and function), they *could* have mixed them. The plant could handle the change however it was written. The big thing was to get the AD's out of there before the JL8's came down the line...
