Where are they leaking fuel from?They are leaking fuel like crazy and from what I see the only broken things I see on them is where the air cleaners go. I'm just trying to get a sense of how to approach this project. I'm keeping the drivetrain the way it is until I can finish everything else on it like body and interior
See if you can slightly tighten the screws, cris-crossing the pattern of tightening them little by little. Not too tight, just snug them up a bit. I've had good experience getting leaks to either slow a lot or completely subside. Fingers crossed. As for driving it more, is what it is and be thankful it runs and drives as you purchased a classic!! You'll get there, one screw, gasket and wire at a time my friend!! We all started somewhere (***unless you just bought a trailer queen to show off someone else's hard work posing it as your own, then I got no love for you.. LOL) and we all have our stories and labors of love for our rides. Mine was a total basket-case and still kinda is... Work in progress, but working in the right direction!!I guess I would say leaking from that first gasket in the middle on all 3. If I can rebuild them and keep it cheap I'm all for it. I should of driven it more but it ran ok around the block and on the trailer before I brought it home.
Take a look on YouTube. Tons of useful (and not so useful) Rochester carb rebuild videos there. Rebuild kits are a-plenty and cheap as rice too! Not all are created equal though so hopefully others here will chime in. @Twinshadows and others would likely be your best bet on advice on those carbs.Plans are to drive it as much as I can lol any work that's done to it is all me. Appreciate the input from everyone. If you have any websites to direct me to so I can rebuild the carbs I would also appreciate.
