My dad was in High School in the late 50's He said him and his friends would steal gas and they would run their car from a five gallon can in the front seat.

I'd like to drive the car home and then pull the tank to get boiled. I can get it done for $100 at the local radiator shop.

If it DON'T then simply replace the fuel pump. They often feel like they're working in your hand but not enough eccentric throw from the cam unless it's a new pump.

Unhook the line at the FP? So I will be blowing fuel though the line to the pump right?

Re: New project 62 Convertible

Okay I was looking for a rebuild kit for the 223 carb today. Just doing a little research. I got a shop manual download from someone on this forum last week. It lists my carb as a Holley C2AE-9510-B. I cant find this listed as the carb in any other source. I have found 9510C or D or U or Z or J... I found sites that list the carbs for 223 all the way up to 61 or from 1927 up to 1953.

I also found that the carbs were different for cars with a vacuum line or something. (Don't remember where I read that.)

So, anyone know which carb rebuild kit I need?

62', mileage maker 223, 3 on the tree.

My dad is coming over tomorrow so I am planning to get the parts car home. :-)

Re: New project 62 Convertible

I got the hardtop running with my dad today. I'd bring it home but his motorhome and boat are in the driveway. The car actually ran pretty good for sitting for two years. I drove it around the parking lot a few times testing the brakes and letting the car idle.

I was just reading through this thread and saw your post, i had to write something. . . . . . . 7 years is a long time, . . . but what really hit me was your loss.

Talking Re: New project 62 Convertible

Update: I'm taking the front end apart. I had to paint the frame where I removed the rust just to keep it from re-rusting.........Don't look at my mess.

Re: New project 62 Convertible

Update: I got all the ball joints, tie rod ends, bushings, brakes parts, bearings ect... for the front end and I am assembling the front. We have the parts car blocked up in a storage unit and we pulled the front suspension parts that we needed and the rear leaf springs and axle.

I have a question. Among other things like wire brushes, I am using molasses and water to remove rust. I dissolved 2.5 gallons of molasses into a 35 gallon trash can. When I first did it I put some parts in it and it took a while but it did remove the rust (3 weeks). I know the concentration is too weak and I got another jug of molasses but before I add it to the mix I already have, I want to know how long the molasses and water will continue to work. Should I start a new batch or can I just add more molasses to what I have?

Re: New project 62 Convertible

Update: Work is slower during wrestling season as my son has less free time. I could do all the work myself but that is not really the purpose of all this.
The vert has major rust issues in the trunk and floorboards so I am going to try to use the good metal from the parts car. We cut the trunks out of both cars and I am going to do the floors next. Once we get the floors out, I will see what metal I will need to buy. I may not need to buy any panels for the floors but I might have to use a small piece or two of sheet metal just to fix a little hole.

I have the whole front suspension done but no brake lines yet. Once I get the floors done and the firewall looking good, I will work on brakes.

I have all the bushings to rebuild the rear suspension but I need to go through the rear end before I do the rear suspension.

I thought I had two good fuel tanks and planned to use the one from the parts car because the convertible one had a small dent in it. I pulled the tank and knocked the rust off the top of it just to find several small holes the size of a pencil. I then decided to check the dented one and found it to be much, much worse.

I'll try to get some pictures up soon.
