Great find ! Great pix, KEEP um coming !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ThanxIT'S ALIVE!!!
I took the ruined carb, blew it out with air, cleaned it up a little, milled out a new place for the main jet (more or less...), crammed the jet in with teflon tape, spread out the old leather accelerator cup, put it back together with the old crappy gaskets, and Viola! He came to life instantly! Motor ran very well. Nice and smooth, just purred away, a good 40 PSI oil pressure, even once warmed up. Then we went for a short test drive around the lot. Drive train seems to work well, even the winch worked!
I can't say how excited I am! Just like a teenager, 30 years ago back in High School when we'd get our old bombs going on a none-existant budget.
Extra thanks to Steve (Hpwr) for the assistance and faith. Especially the part where he stood on the running board and held the temp fuel tank up high to gain fuel pressure as I drove the truck around.
Here it is. Hopefully this will work.
