Finally, with assistance, found out why the 1927 Chrysler 58 would not stay in time.
Once we found a fix for that, it ran, and ran rather well, at that. I must have gotten the carb setting pretty close after pulling it apart to clean the sludge out of it. Now I gotta get the tank cleaned out and get the (rather odd) vacuum fuel pump working….
Of course, it needs an exhaust manifold gasket, some hoses and belts, and the intake manifold gasket, but aside from that, “She’s Cherry”.
Gonna take some more work, but this is a BIG milestone.
Updates as they happen.
