Thanks Mike. Would you let me borrow one? It would let me get the carb back on and continue working while I keep hunting for a replacement glass.

None of the parts carbs have glass. The new carb from the '67 is on the '64 now. I need to move the 64 tonight to clean up the leaves under it then I could be persuaded to loan out the glass.

Looks like I'm going to be needing an intake manifold as well. After scraping off several layers of gaskets and sealer, the carb manifold interface is cracked.

Still needing the carb site glass too.

Thanks.

You can have that welded up. Take it to a good weldeing shop and it shouldn't be more than $50.

Sorry I haven't looked for that box with my spare carb. I'll try and look this week.

Update:

It appears that the Insulator block is what is cracked and the manifold seems ok except that the manifold gaskets were shot and there was a massive exhaust leak.

Question: Will it be necessary to have a machine shop resurface both the head and manifolds, or will cleaning it up and rep[lacing the gasket be sufficient??

Mine was the same way. This is what I did. Pulled the manifolds. cleaned up the gaskets (3 pieces). Used orange manifold gasket rtv and the old cleaned up gaskets and tightened everything backup. No wonky idle due to vacuum leak and runs like a champ. Also go back and retighten the maniold bolts or I'd recommend some blue locktite. The way they tigheten with the clamps sucks.

you can also get a billet insulator from mark.
