Classic American cars

CARTER W1 SINGLE BARREL CARBURETTOR IN FOR A REBUILD FOR 1951 CHEVROLET STYLINE COUPE

Poor old 1951 Chevrolet Styline Coupe has been suffering with poor running and breakdowns for the last two years, ever since it was imported from Iowa.

Much money has been spent on the fuel system and electrics but the carb’ has not received any attention, it’s my guess that the carb’ is where the problems lay.

After the rebuild we fitted the carb’ and set the idle mixture and tick over, checked the vacuum and timing, everything worked as it should so we took it up the road for a test run. She had a slight hiccup on takeoff so we readjusted and did another road test, all went well this time.

Should be another lovely classic American car out on the road this summer, and this year without the breakdowns!

We pulled the plugs to check the colour and they were a perfect grey with no sign of the soot they had previously had every time they were pulled previously.
