289 When the engine gets warm, the next gasoline will not be in the filter and the engine will not start. Is the pump weak? I don't know how to solve it, whether or not the vent is bad. please tell me.
Well, first things first. You shouldn't be able to see the fuel inside the fuel filter since it should be in the canister attached to the fuel pump. Second, the inlet to the float bowl is in the top so when you shut the car off the float bowl should be more or less full. There are no gaskets below the float bowl and any fuel from the bowl has to be drawn up out of the bowl before discharge so the only way it can all leak out is from a crack in the carburetor body or some is escaping due to percolation from excess heat.
As I've said before (I wish I had a nickel for each time), the proper warm starting procedure is to hold the accelerator pedal down 1/4 of the way and crank the engine. If it doesn't start, hold the pedal to the floor and crank until it starts and runs smoothly. If you're having percolation issues the typical causes are too much under hood heat (headers, late ignition timing, etc.) and excessive use of rubber fuel line.
We have the proverbial 3 speed non synchronized transmission. One of the synchronizers broke and we bought a rebuild kit and are ready to put back together. We thought about upgrading to a 1967 3.03 3 speed transmission. I have read several threads on VMF, that the swap is...
Went for a walk last night and ran across my neighbor pushing his '65 Mustang back home. Ran over and helped him push it the 4 or so blocks back home. He said he was getting on it, going through the gears and the engine blew out a bunch of white smoke and it just stopped running. He tried to...
Howdy. My car had traction bars that the previous owner installed. I don’t plan on drag racing or taking off hard, so apart from what a traction bar is supposed to do, am I giving anything up by removing them?

My 69 just has the regular rear light units with one bulb in each. My wiring is very slightly modified to not have them flash as indicators and they just work as night lights and brake lights.
I have often wondered about how good the rear brake lights are during the day, especially on a very...
