Matthew, The metering rod and jet numbers I have written on the top of your carburetor. Save this information to your note book. if any better combinations are noted you will know your starting point of adjustment.

Matthew, I can't believe you put a can of Sure Grip Lubricant and a 59 carb on my carpet floor in the guest bedroom! Hope it did not leave a stain or you will be in big trouble once Pam she see's it! :o LOL

At least you did not try to rebuild a tramsission up there!

Be back from Chicago tomorrow...

That was just for the picture :mrgreen: it was on plastic all the time and the carb in the box.
I'll be still in Philly tomorrow.

Matthew; Do not keep limited slip lube in your trunk without a protective container, if it leaks out the smell is excessively pungent. Will not impress the girls. Beond musk, right to the stench. :oops:

Hey John Q. - Isn't there a post somewhere that a certain SF convertible is loaded with a considerable amount of Belvedere DNA. Just asking??

Wow! I just think of poor Vic Barone down under, paying his bodyman a king's ransom to have his header bar re-constructed.
You have an exceptionally rare piece of hardware there, Matthew! Guard it with your life! Put Bode on patrol!

All the parts that won't fit my suitcase are going into a container that is shipped to the Netherlands.
I am keeping everything as spare parts.

These parts are hard to find here but impossible to find I Europe!
I have myself on guard here :twisted:

Excellent find, Matthew!!

It took me a year and a half to find a good header bow, and it cost more than the car did!

The rest of the steel pieces I will have to probably make, as they are so rusty. Luckily I met some Swedish fellows that crafted the other bows, so I have them on hand now.
