Default Thanks~!

I'm leaving work a little early to stand in the cold and try to fix this tonight! Thanks!

It looks like SOR doesn't carry the spring...Does anyone know if this is still available or a have an idea on a good substitute?

thanks again.

You could just measure the distance and then try and find a spring that fits that length. Just make sure it has enough tension...buy a few.

Shawn,

I was thinking about this the other day.. what if you just pulled the carb and sent it to Jim Chenowith (sp?) Sorry if I butchered that name.. I'm not sure what his contact info is but I'm sure I know somoene who does. But from what I've heard he's master of card rebuilds, puts it all together super sweet and from here on out you can rule out carb issues.

Plus you get 25 more HP, 20mpg, all the ladies, etc. Anyone know if he charges a standard rate, and what that is?

Default JimC...($$$??)

HAH! That thing is Loud, huh? Headers plus the Flowmaster really sound throaty!

I heard a rumor, no concrete evidence, that is...expensive. If I can get 'er runnin a little better with this endeavor, it's coming off and getting re-built.

Anyone local do good Aisin re-builds?

I am in Louisville, if you want another set of eyes on it.

For rebuilding the originals, there is only one dude... Jim C. TLC Performance in Ohio. He is stellar.

Default hmmm...I might just take you up on that offer!

I have beer, and enough knowledge to get my myself in deeep trouble.

I'm still learning so much about 40's...similar, but still waaay different from my 60. I'm heading out of LoDo early to tinker, but that means home by 4:30ish...shoot me a PM if want to spend a little time standing in my Driveway.

Best way to get a hold of him is pm FJ40Jim on mud. IIRC. Rebuild and tune is $300.

You can also buy a non usa 2 barrell from aus for ~$400. That's what I ended up doing. If it was a smogged 60 carb I'd definatly send it to jim.http://forum.ih8mud.com/showthread.p...ghlight=nardek

How many miles on this 40? I would try and hit some of the basic items before I pulled off the carb and sent it out. Tune it up. adjust the valves and dist, check for vacuum leaks, adjust the carb, etc.

Default yeah - basics, first.

Good idea...I'm going through it front to back checking "stuff". I've found a few dangling wires, minor heater pipe leak from the valve into the cab (not sure exactly what the deal is with that yet), and other schtuff.

since i got home so late last night - running the cruiser at 8pm in neighborhood wouldn't be a respectful thing to do. tonight is carb cleaning, vac leak check, spring check.

The 40 was completely "restified" about 8 years ago, and then not really used for the last 4-5 years. The odometer shows 86k, but the 2F was rebuilt with the 'restification'. I think if I clip the low-hanging fruit, I'll have a strong runner here.

thanks again for all the help and advice!

I'll be home this weekend if you need help. I have a vacuum gauge, tach, timing light, multimeter, etc.
