ASME Motor Fuel Tank Sources?

Hi All, I am nearing the point where I will need to work out the tank install for my Hotrod ('38 Chevy Pickup/Lakes Modified) and have struck out completely for anyone selling motor fuel tanks. Can anyone tell me who in the U.S. sells low volume? A couple I have seen require volume purchase or will ...

There is a port just above the power adjust screw that is at a 45* angle to the left (away from the idle adjust screw) that appears to be a candidate. The pull rod on the vacume diaphram that I have is too long to affect full opening on the secondaries, but shorter versions are available from Holley...

Nope. A Holley 4 barrel base plate is bolted to the Impco 425 to become the throttle valve and adapter to the mainfold.

Secondary linkage on Impco 425?

OK, before I go and convert my vacume secondary throttle plate to mechanical, I have a question. While disassebling my Holley to move the base plate over, I noticed 2 threaded bosses on the Impco 425 that looked to be just like those on the Holley required for mounting the secondary throttle vacume ...

Found one!

A friend came through with a Holley 600 cfm cheap enough that I snatched it up. For future reference, it is an 1850-3 model 4160 with vac. secondaries. The bores are 1 9/16". They are slightly smaller than the bores on the impco, but look to be just fine. The 1 11/16 bores on a 750 cfm base are prob...

Holley Base Plate

It's funny how the venerable Holley has almost gone extict. Try as I might, there are no good used examples to be found in my area. Does anyone have a line on where to get a good used square bore base plate, or carb for that matter? I have found plenty of new pieces online, but they are almost as ex...

Great Price, Quick Delivery on Mixer

After shopping the web for weeks, I made contact with Hendrix GasTrux in Wauconda, IL. A tech by the name of Todd was more than helpful and confessed to driving a converted Mopar. Take a look at http://www.hendrixsystems.com and give them a call. My Impco 425 was too cheap to mention, and I had it i...
