    Hello from Australia, My second ever question regarding my original 57 4 door 210. I recently changed the tank sender unit because i ran out of fuel when the gauge was still reading 1/4 full. Now that the tank sender is replaced i have a few issues. - Gauge only reads 3/4 with a full tank of...
  4. Safety Tips, Keep it Safe
    Have you found a safe way to carry reserve fuel, portable or fixed unit? Carrying a gas can in the trunk does not seem wise. Except for maybe a safety designed fuel cell, that alluring space in front of the radiator seems like an obvious mistake as well. I'm not ready for the expense or...

    1956 150 with 74 vintage 350 with mild cam and Edelbrock 4 bbl. 5/16" OD steel line from tank to standard mechanical fuel pump. I installed the clear plastic fuel filter that comes with the carb. The fuel delivery appears to be very poor. See attached pic - it's not a great pic, but it might...
  6. Fuel Systems/Injection, Carburation, Supercharging
    I just had my carburetor gaskets replaced and all that, and i found that the carb is shot. It wont keep the idle that it is given so it is stuck on high idle. So what would you guys recommend for a four barrel carb? I have a 57 intake manifold on there according to the numbers (3731398) and I...
  7. Fuel Systems/Injection, Carburation, Supercharging
    My car always has gas fly out the back end whenever i try to put gas on. This seems to happen to many other people, and the best advice i have found so far has been to listen to the pump. But i read about this and it seems this happens because the gas pump nozzles for leaded fuel were bigger...

    Posted this in the tri-five Corvette forum, but it may be better here: Was at a friend's house (lady friend of my wife actually) showing her my newest hot rod. After a ride she mentioned that her ex-husband had left a motor in her garage and would I take a look at it? Of course, there was no...

    Hi guys I recently purchased a 1957 Chevy 3100 with the original 235 6cyl engine. The other day she just quit on me and I have not been able to get her started since. I replaced the fuel pump as th e lines were dry before and after the pump so I thought no big deal. She cranked right over after...

    Hey Everyone, I have been going crazy trying to fix my 1957 210 4 door sedan. I replaced the gas sender unit, all fuel lines, fuel cap, put on a glass fuel filter, and replaced all connectors from the fuel filter to the carb. I finally got it to stop leaking from the fuel pump to carb and got...
  12. Stock Chevy Discussion 55-56-57
    I had my engine rebuilt a while ago. Ever since then, it takes a fairly long time to start unless I have used the car within a day. If I haven't it acts like I haven't used it in a month. It cranks strong while it's trying to start, and doesn't have any problems once started. Once I've used it...
