I've been trying to determine if this is a body part that is still available. I can't find a schematic that includes this part:
Above is out of the truck. Hard to see (sorry) it is sitting on my leg vise bench here.
Below is before I removed it:
Yeah.......shut up Californios (and all...
There is a thread about these Chinese made aftermarket carbs going on the 40/45/55 forum. Quite inexpensive when compared to the OEM rebuilds. Here is a link to that thread:
Anyone use one of those $80 carbs off of amazon?
The second post has a link to the amazon page. If that link is broken...
I need to machine a 2F intake exhaust manifold and Im hoping someone here know of one that has done this job on this intake. The three piece exhaust makes them a bit wonky from what I hear.
Just-In-Time Machining in Middleton was recommended by a friend that works for Kayser Ford. Anyone have...
I have the manifold removed and both exhaust horns pulled.
A few questions:
1: A pair of springs and a single ring sits in the groove in each horn. Or perhaps there are two groves with a ring in each and the springs (which appear to be wavy shaped objects in the Specter Off Road diagram)...
I am trying to hook up the cables to my D40 and It has been a while since I removed it for a rebuild. I was a little dismayed when I realized that I have 3 cables to hook up.
Ok, so there's the choke. That's pretty straightforward......just hook that sucker up to the thing that closes the top...
hey all you bad Mudders,
My brother just bought a Southbend mill (~1500 lbs) and an inspection plate (~600 lbs) and he is trying to find a way to transport them to his shop In Madison, WI. I know it is probably a long shot but I figured It couldn't hurt to try MUDship. Will pay a reasonable...
2 d 8 d40 carburetor from a '68 40 so I guess it isn't the original carb ('72, '82 even???)
I have a 74 engine in there and I believe it has a '68 I/E manifold but I'm not really sure. It does have the adapter bit for the 1bbl carb and the firing order in the intake casting toward the #1...
I have a '73 F engine all torn down. It was a victim of hurricane Sandy. I think it will need to be rebored and the machinist that I usually go to, Marten Motors in Morrisville, PA, is no longer in business. Anyone have a recommendation? I am in the Trenton/Princeton area.
I have my 73 F engine all torn down. The poor thing got flooded in super storm Sandy. Unfortunately I think I need to have it bored out to a larger size. I may have a line on some OS domed pistons. A fork truck mechanic I talked to may be able to get some. He said they are hoarding them...
Anyone know if this is for real? I thought pistons from this era were no longer available even aftermarket.
