Got the carb build done.
Got the body cleaned up well. Used brake cleaner and compressed air to get rid and of crud and made sure all passages were clear.
Then cleaned metering blocks the same way.
Metering blocks reassembled with new parts, old parts are in front. We counted turns in on air needles and set them the same.
All together. We measured old float level before disassembly and installed new float needles the same.
Installed back in car.
Cranked right up once bowls had fuel. Checked for leaks, had to adjust idle slightly, checked float level thru bowl windows, was dead on,
adjusted air screws to highest vacuum, my preferred way, set idle, double checks for leaks, then text drive. I'm proud of my son, he did it all, he's all smiles, didn't even get my hands dirty. On test drive low end is great. Then went on top end test, did a 75 to 90 mph pull, no fuel starvation, all good.
I sure do love this car. May not be mine anymore after 57 years, but my son gets to enjoy it for hopefully many years to come and possibly generations to come with the grandkids.
