Re: My rusty '68 "Custom" rising from the dead.

Turns out, not out of gas.

Secondary float stuck, fuel all over the engine!

Tinkered with it, then took it to a pro today.
He says the jets were way too fat, he's local and will get them much closer.

Maybe with a carb that is jetted reasonably close and has working secondaries the car will finally drive as it should?

At these gas prices I want it 100+ octane, leaded, and my windshield washed!
