Re: 1910 Overland restoration

morning Al, the '11 has a sliding gear trans, but the '10 (and earlier) had a planetary trans. So, that's why I'm going to need a BIG parking lot to try it out! My first car was a '28 Model A Special Coupe. Still have it. Very nice car. Took me 15 years to restore it. No money, no time. Here's a bef...

Re: POST YOUR BEFORE AND AFTER PICTURES

Wow Pete, you're a gluten for punishment! That's how my '11 Overland model 49 looks. Once I get learned on the '10 I'm going after the '11. Along with the many other projects I want to get done...……….. Your car sure looks nice now though!

Re: 1910 Overland restoration

Morning Al, yes, the geometry of the float/valve is probably my biggest worry. The float arm is cast brass, and will bend, but I'm a bit leery of bending it. I did when I was attempting to get the leak to stop, but I was sweating! The instructions I've seen on the "D" states to have the float parall...

Re: 1910 Overland restoration

Howdy Al, I found one that is going to work, if all goes well. Found it in a local repair shop! Talked to an old carb guy ( actually he's younger than me, but he knows the old ('50's and '60's) carbs pretty well, and this one is hopefully just the ticket! We got along great! My son is building a "de...

Re: 1910 Overland restoration

Morning Al, I have, hopefully, a solution in the works. We're currently working on installing a needle and seat. We've looked it over and can't come up with a reason it won't work. So, I'll let you know as soon as he gets it done, and I've tested it. Stay tuned!

Re: 1910 Overland restoration

Morning boys, as Al suggested, I checked with the CarbKing, but he didn't really have any answers other than "put on a REAL carburetor". Not really what I wanted to hear. So, I'm still thinking about that needle and seat. This is going to take some time and effort, but I'll keep you posted on how it...

Re: 1910 Overland restoration

Howdy boys, well I've come to the conclusion I must change out the needle and seat. I've fought this for better than two weeks, without any improvement, so, after much thinking, calculating, and conferring with the experts that I know, I think my energy should be wasted (I mean focused!) on how to i...

Re: 1910 Overland restoration

You're right Al. For me, it's just a matter of figuring out how to do it. My son is pretty good at making things work, when I come up with the idea! My biggest fear is ruining the bowl when we try to drill and tap it for a new float seat.... Scary! Thanks!

Re: 1910 Overland restoration

Howdy boys, I had some time to fiddle with it today, so I took a hard look at the seat, and I can see it has some "roughness" to it. I took a small Dremel stone and shaped it to match the angle of the float valve, then worked it into the valve seat several times to see if I could clean it up any. Th...

Re: 1910 Overland restoration

Howdy Pete, thanks for the input, I'll definitely let you know the results of the fix, what ever that might be. Another thought occurred to me this morning, about 4am I might add, and that is, maybe the float isn't pushing down on the needle as I thought it was. That would allow it to unseat with li...

Re: 1910 Overland restoration

A question for you Al, does the BB 1 have a removable seat, or did you put one in it? That may be a possibility with this Schebler. It would be a challenge! I'd have to let my son tackle that, but I think it could be drilled out, threaded, and a seat could then be installed? Maybe.

Re: 1910 Overland restoration

Howdy boys, the carb I am using is a Schebler D. The seat is not removable, so it can't be replaced. The needle (valve) is about an inch long and the shaft is about 1/16 in diameter. The cone shaped valve sets about 3/8 above the tip. I haven't seen a Viton tipped valve that would work, but of cours...

Re: 1910 Overland restoration

Howdy boys, well, still having problems. I believe the float valve is leaking after all. Not necessarily due to the head pressure, although I believe it was a contributing factor. I took the carb back off the car and set it up on the bench again. After letting it set, with the fuel open to the bowl,...

Re: 1910 Overland restoration

Howdy boys, DAMNIT!! After further review, I still have a problem. It seems I was a bit too impatient when watching for a leak while I had things on the bench, as changing the location of the tank made no difference. I am still leaking fuel after it sets a short time. I took it off the car and set i...

Re: 1910 Overland restoration

Howdy boys, well as you might imagine, this is pissin' to start me off! Still dripping when I attach the carb to the car. Works fine at the bench. Ok, here's my latest thought. After moving the entire set up to the car (carb, small gas container and tubing) from the bench, and attaching it to the ca...

Re: 1910 Overland restoration

Howdy boys, glad to see I'm not the only one Jeff! I didn't get much time to work on it today, but I did put it back on the car, and, drip, drip, drip. Either something is being warped when I attach it to the manifold, or, who knows what. Just have to keep after it. I'll keep ya posted.

Re: 1910 Overland restoration

Howdy boys, well as usual, something is amiss! I hooked up the carb, turned on the fuel, and.... drip, drip, drip. What the (BEEP!)?! Why is it leaking here and not on the bench? OK, off it comes, and back to the bench. Maybe the float level is too high. Ok, make a tool on my lathe to bend it in pla...

Re: 1910 Overland restoration

Howdy boys, success!! No leaks after hooking everything up this morning! I filled and drained the carb several times, with no leaks! Next step, install it and test for leaks there, then, give it a good cranking and hope she fires! Won't have time today, as I am taking part in a Moonshiners Ball, and...

Re: 1910 Overland restoration

Howdy boys, well, after fiddling with the mag for a couple days, I finally have it working as it should, or at least I hope so! I have spark at the correct time, water in the radiator, oil in the oiler, and gas in the little tank I have on the "dash". But, when I turn the gas valve on, the Schebbler...

Re: 1910 Overland restoration

Very true Al, I was a cowboy many years ago, but traded it in for 4 years in the U.S. Navy Seabees as a mechanic. Had great time. Retired from Pendleton Fire as assistant chief/ fire marshal in ‘04. Great job! And yes, I’m involved with the Pendleton round up. I probably know your cousins.
