Griffin model G adjustment

I have a N.O.S. Griffin Model G carb that I want to try out. Does anyone know the initial starting point for the low and high speed adjusters? Thanks : Bruce

Re: Foot throttle

I have foot throttles on both of my T's and really like them. Back in the day when everyone was driving 20-35 MPH and with equally bad brakes, maybe the hand throttle was just OK, but in today's traffic (volume and speed) makes for a different set of rules. Hopefully without missing something, today...

Re: Wanted: stromberg of return.spring and access parts.

Matt : The spring that Stan is describing is the one to open the choke after the pull wire through the rad shell is released.With the original Stromberg cable system the dash mounted cable holds the choke plate rigid and in whatever location it was set in. The spring I'm talking about is used to ass...

Re: Odds of getting stolen

John: I would be more concerned with people (kids) climbing on it than anyone trying to steal it. Your car has door locks so I wouldn't worry. I think that you could safely leave the doors open and the key in the ignition and still be OK as the kind of guy that might think about stealing it most lik...

Re: Wanted: stromberg of return.spring and access parts.

If you don't have the original cable control to operate the choke, most guys use the original choke pull mechanism to put the choke "on", and rely on gravity on the rod to let it open. This works some of the time but is not a "for sure" way to guarantee that the choke opens and stays open. On the on...

Re: Using a 4-1 steering gear box in place of 5-1

Mark : Whether it goes over center left or right depends on the length of the tie rod. There are several different lengths you could try and if you pick the right one it may not go over center in either direction.

Re: Using a 4-1 steering gear box in place of 5-1

Mark : After installing the 1" shorter pitman arm, my car's steering would go over center only on sharp right turns so I bolted a 1/4" thick small plate (maybe 3" X 5") to the left front frame rail that stopped the pitman arm from going any farther and just before it would go over center. With the 5...

Re: Using a 4-1 sterring gear box in place of 5-1

To me, Wayne Sheldon's comments sure made sense. The main shaft only rotates so many degrees no matter what ratio is driving it. I don't know why they made the groove any longer, but do know that it had to be wider as the distance from the center of the shaft to the center of the gear pins increased...
