    Disassembled and carb dipped parts this morning. The fuel pump has an eroded outlet valve seat. I’m going to lap it flat.

    Other parts looks great.

    Funny full throttle stop rivet thing that keeps the butterfly from going fully open. Maybe because of the bus specific governor?

    All rebuilt and ready to run. Fixed the valve in the pump and installed a new diaphragm.

    The points in the distributor looked like new so I didn’t replace them. Set the gap to .016”. The vacuum can tested good. Everything cleaned/lubed, and a new o-ring.

    The carburetor had a burned out choke….which is like a 67 only 12 volt ceramic style. I had to replace it with  a 70’s  metal style.(I saved old parts in a bag). Tested the electric choke and idle shut off valve. Ready to run.

    Any chance you can share what you used on the sunburned/rusty areas on the roof and nose etc?

     

    Damn those tires are sweet, nice to see something other than Firestone’s
