    Afternoon all:

    # 3246 Holley 4150, 780cfm single accelerator pump.
    They do make green accelerator pump diaphragms that are for alcohol. haven't seen any power valves though for alcohol. The accelerator pump diaphragm is brand new and installed 2 new power valves also, all Holley, so the ethanol factor shouldn't be a problem. I have rebuilt various Holley 4150's multiple times and never had this problem, probably something simple that I'm just overlooking, even checked the pump lever to make sure it's not bottoming out the diaphragm. NBD, will get to it one day, the one I put on the car works fine and I have 2 other carbs that are ready to bolt on if needed, always good to have spare parts!!! :)

    Maybe I missed it... but what's the carb going on?

    :worthless:

    I'm not a Holley guy. Every one I've ever had experience with was prone to needing constant adjustments. Several had warped bowls and leaked. But my brother likes them, and I know others do.

    1966 Impala, factory L-72 427 425hp car which I have had from new. I also like the Holley's and really never had any major problems with them, that 3246 is also the correct OEM carb for the motor.
    That's the one thing I didn't check, the fuel bowl mating surface for the accelerator pump housing.

    Yup, another possibility, got to really look at it closely, one of these days, at least I have a problem narrowed down to a very small specific area.

    Got your accelerator pump check valve? Power valve gaskets sealing properly? That mating surface changed over the years, flat square corners went to rounded corners. New diaphragms are crap. There are kits, and then there are kits you can trust. Daytonaparts.com kits you can trust.

    Don’t know if I showed these.
    Overhauled a couple of edelbrock carbs for a supercharged SMC.
    Nasty.
    Still haven’t heard from him. Suppose to sync them up when he gets it ready to fire up.

    Sound advise! Welcome to the porch. If you have been on the porch before sorry I missed you.

    Now I will be impressed if you have a spare L72 lying around. J/K It is amazing the stuff we hold on to "Just in Case". ;)

    Back at you Ken. Had a special Fathers Day gift from my son yesterday. He bought dinner at Skippers Pier, a dozen jumbo steamed crabs and Ice tea along with a dozen steamed shrimp. The crabs were big and heavy. Yesterday was windy on the water. The band played solid 70's and 80's music by artist I like.

    Nice pics Mike. It is the little thing that make you a pro. Having a work surface and laying the carb out in an organized manner is just one of them.

    Today is do maintenance on the dryer and cook up a couple of strip steaks for dinner. Grill some asparagus and pineapple wedges to make it a meal.

    Good morning fellow Porchatonians and Happy Father's Day to all you fathers.

    Somehow managed to pinch a nerve in my left shoulder and have been in pain since yesterday afternoon. Looks like I'll be laying low today.

    Happy Fathers Day to all!

    Nifty tool, one of those "why didn't I think of it"?
    Loosen the drain plug, then use this guy to remove the plugs without dropping them into a pan of hot oil.
    OTC Tools 5911A Drain Plug Pro Magnetic Remover, Black
    https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01MSJEBBO

    I normally use a magnetic pickup tool to get the plug out of hot oil, but I like this guy better.

    The last time I changed the oil, the washer was stuck to the pan. Had to drop my skid plate to get a gasket scrapper in there to pop off the drain plug. Fresh one every time, just hard to see them up there and convinced "it's in the oil someplace" nope.

    Thanks Ken. We babysat last night for 6 hours. We took Baby Addie to a local festival where she enjoyed funnel cake and homemade ice cream. She also had some cheeseburger and fries and a couple bites of ham and bean soup. You can guess what the beans did man!
