Was thinking about that engine BO. Do you want to sell it? I’ll call you later.WrenParticipantMarch 22, 2019 at 11:50 amPost count: 166
Going to go with a 1915.
How much do you want for that engine you have Bo? I just talked to the painters guy it may be a bit cheaper for me to build an engine out of what I have. He needs to check it out first.BodgocoParticipantMarch 23, 2019 at 8:42 amPost count: 54
No worries. I’ve got 400 in the case plus all the Painters work. If you need it it’s there.
My buddy from Denver bailed on bringing it down because of weather.FranzKeymasterMarch 25, 2019 at 9:17 amPost count: 3468
Are you going to be able to do the Ottinger Moab trip next month? 26th-28th. We can probably have your engine back in time.WrenParticipantMarch 26, 2019 at 7:48 amPost count: 166

Yeah I’d like to plan on it. I have a work thing that Saturday but I think it’s going to change. The other problem is I have a baby, puppy and wife. Painters guy said he could have the engine back around 2 weeks. Let’s try and get it done. Can you get rebuild kits for those dells? I know they are fine but maybe its worth rebuilding them now? I remember another thread saying you can’t get the kits anymore?
Still planning on coming to GJ this weekend! So sick of being on the ranch. SOOOO much snow and mud. I’m over it!FranzKeymasterMarch 26, 2019 at 9:43 amPost count: 3468
Hell yeah, I have empi D carb rebuild kits here…I think they are the same as dellorto. We’ll have to look.dirtylawnchairParticipantMarch 28, 2019 at 9:58 amPost count: 61

Do you guys use an ultrasonic cleaner on the body and jets when doing a rebuild? If so, what chemical do you use? I have a few sets OG Dell 36s and various other carbs that need a really good cleaning.FranzKeymasterMarch 28, 2019 at 10:04 amPost count: 3468
Usually just caustic carb dip.
If you have that white mineral build-up you can use CRL in a dunk tank…but not for very long, it will eat the aluminum.FranzKeymasterMarch 29, 2019 at 9:31 amPost count: 3468

If possible, what is the height of this bus at the driprail? Just curious, as we would have essentially the same set up if I did decide to go back up? thanksJohn JonesKeymasterApril 1, 2019 at 11:14 amPost count: 6463
