He seems to have committed to a number of missteps along the way EV being a big one. We don't want them.

Is that a REAL Shelby?

Maybe in a parallel universe, but not the universe in which we live.  Here is the link where I found the car while perusing the internet one evening.

What about the float bowls?  Not sure if that has anything to do with your issue but the float bowls should be at a level where just a little bit of gas leaks out of the hole once the screw is removed and the car is nudged to rock side to side.
No sight holes on the 3259 carb bowls unless you make them yourself.

Yes, true, but aren't there screws that can be removed and the car body nudged to see if gasoline comes out of the holes to indicate the level is up or alternatively if it pours out then the level is too high?  That is what I have on on my Holley 650 double pumper.  Otherwise how are the float bowls checked for proper level?  Or maybe the 715 doesn't need it?  Curious.




Dethsled, lemans bowl fuel level is set dry. If you want to check it while running, there are ways.
  Thanks for the info, Drew.

The bolt holes are above and below the optimum level so no those are not used for that purpose that is if you are referring to float bowl retaining screws. As previously stated the 3259 does not have the sight holes that your double pumper has. The float on the LeMans bowl carbs has to be adjusted dry and disconnected from the carb.
I find that interesting but also much more labor intensive.  But that is how it is.  One has to adapt if one is to keep it original.  Mine is a day two car so...

Bought a gym membership for the Hertz and woke up to this...
All kidding aside this car looks brutal.

Thanks Roy, I have checked them out.  Friend is considering the minilites.  I inquired as to the best size.

Intellectual curiosity drives me to the question does anyone know what happened to Mr. Schmidt?  Would be nice to get a set of his now defunct torque thrust rims.  It is unfortunate he is not in business anymore.  Retired I guess?

Totally distracted and no time to add anything meaningful and creative.  Preparing for a motion to quash and suppress for hearing tomorrow on a DUI case.  I have a shot.

^^ All fun and games with nitro/hydrazine until your rods end up in the next county.
Interesting article on hydrazine.  Just the name alone is cool.  Could be a good title to a story.
https://www.dragzine.com/news/flashback-friday-the-story-of-the-leathal-fuel-called-hydrazine/

"Lakes era racers who experimented with H found that a stock 90 horsepower flathead would pump out better than 300 horsepower simply by sucking this stuff through its Stromberg. These same racers also discovered Hydrazineís major drawback for practical use. After running it through an engine, the carbs would start to cake up with a substance that resembled soap flakes. This nasty little by product was a shock sensitive explosive called the Methazodic Salt of Hydrazinium Acid, and was the result of allowing vapors from the Nitro/Hydrazine mixture to condense in a closed environment. Right, never mind this stuff will throw your crank on the ground after just a couple of runs, but if you happen to tap the carb with a wrench, itíll blow your face off. Letís go racing!"

Mr E this thought just came to me, write a song about the YEAR 2066

let me give you an idea on the album cover and  the lyrics, you as a writer, poet, artist extraordinaire finish it

Well here goes

In the year 2066, if man is still alive

If woman can survive, they may find
In the year 3535
Ain't gonna need to tell the truth, tell no lie
Everything you think, do and say
Is in the pill you took today
In the year 4545
You ain't gonna need your teeth, won't need your eyes
You won't find a thing to chew
Nobody's gonna look at you
In the year 5555
Your arms hangin' limp at your sides
Your legs got nothin' to do
Some machine's doin' that for you
In the year 6565
I'll have to think about that one.
