    If you had a leaky float there would be gas in it and you would feel it. I doubt you have a crack in the carb. It probably is a bad needle and seat. Years ago a friend of my family invented a...

    I assume you are setting the correct float level. If you are not a racer drop the float level a 1/16". Also does the engine have to be running or will they leak when cranking it over? Do they keep...

    Just for safety's sake I would replace it. If you have to use one of the blended fuels the diaphragm will be damaged and may leak gas into the engine crankcase. Buy one that says it will work with...

    raise top

    If I remember correctly you can access the pistons if you remove the trim panels next to the seat. After disconnecting them you can manually raise the top.

    On my 1964 GP I found the fuel filter in the tank was no good. I replaced it and had the tank cleaned. No more problems. I assume you checked the fuel filter at the engine.

    Instead of using the draft tube why don't you replace it with a PCV valve? I did it on my TriPower and it was very easy. You remove the little collar that adapts the tube to the lifter valley cover....

    If I remember correctly you have the large round tank with the cap covering the whole top held on with a bolt. If so there should be a mark on the outside about 3/4 of an inch down from the top.

    Long trans might give you some problems but I'm sure you can work around it. If you used a later El Camino you could use mounts from a late 1970's - early 1980's GP with the 301 engine. I saw one at...

    Sorry can't see very well from the picture but I've owned several 1955's and none of mine had that so I think it's someone's invention. Where does it start and how does it end?

    You can use 1975-1980 as long as it doesn't hit the carb linkage for the trans pressure. The 1980 may need the control module changed to an earlier one.
