    Like your power timing post Michael, done it many times and would add one tip, do this on a hill or upgrade which will more quickly show engine symptoms. TK (new member)

    Hi Michael. I found your information on "Robertshaw-design Balanced Thermostat Installation
    " very informative. In your article, you mentioned templates for the DIY gaskets. In what I downloaded, these seem to be missing. Would you be so kind as to repost these. Thanks. Rod.

    Michael! Long time since we talked. I just switched phones and lost all my old contacts (bah) - if you get this, give me a call or shoot me a text - my cell # is still the same.

    Hi Mike,
    I am running a 1904 Carb with an electric fuel pump installed by previous owner. Even though I have put a regulator on it at 3.5 PSI. The carb is brand new from the Holley Custom shop. I installed it last week and it ran great for 10 miles and I parked it. Yesterday I started it up and it ran for about 15 seconds and then stalled and fuel came gushing out the top of the bowl and the economizer. Could it be that the Gallons Per Hour from the pump are too much for the carb. The book says that 4.5 to 5 PSI is normal, but I can't find anything about GPH. What do you think.
    Thanks and I hope yer having a good Holiday,

    Dear Michael,
    I hope your health and family situation continues to improve. I hurt my back very bad in the past and can empathize with the slow recovery process.
    I read your thread on the 1935 C1. I am working though a 1936 C15.
    I am trying to get though the axles and brakes on this rig. I suppose you probably have a million folks asking for your expertise, so I understand if you can't help. I was interested that the brakes were mechanical on the C1. They are Bendix hydraulic on the C15. Personally, I prefer mechanical when restoring old rigs as they seem to work great after 70 years, while the hydraulics don't. The frame looks very similar, but I have not found a 'W' stamp in the same location. The rear axle is a mystery. Very heavy duty.
    I am trying to get wheel cylinders and brake pads. Please let me know if you have any interest in helping identify parts or parts sources.
    Best Regards,
    Marcus Reddish

    Hi Michael,

    First let me thank you for all the how-tos and information you provide on our scouts. It is a really big help.

    Second, how much does it cost to have you rebuild a carb? And do you have time to rebuild one at the moment? Thanks!

    Hi Michael,

    I cracked my oil filter adapter mount and am looking for a replacement. Any chance you have one for sale?
