Well the beast does run (kinda)

by Keith Mifflin


After about 5 years my truck started for the first time today but only after I fixed my timing screw up.

I rebuilt the carburetor during the restoration and it was leaking like a sieve so much so that it would begin to keep speeding up and I would have to shut it down.

Well obviously I didn't do the best job of rebuilding it and I knew that the shaft had a lot of wear on it but gas seemed to be coming from every where but the beast did run!

Has anyone got a good condition Carter BBR-1 (ya fat chance I know) or has anyone use the after market holly 1 barrel replacement carbs? If so let me know your thoughts and if you do have a usable carburetor I could buy from you by all means please let me know that too ASAP!
