Hey SteveG, what issues are you having to prompt the question?  (I'm gettin' old here, bear with me please?)


Actually I'm having no problems to speak of. I've only had my Plymouth for six months and wanted to know the ideal pressure for long wear and comfort.
The max. was 40 on the Firestones and thats what I was running. I think I'll use 34 for now.

Owners Manual says 40 front,35 back.

I'm running 40 both. 20" wood wheels newer Firestones.

What tire pressure do you guys run?

General Discussion / Stromberg Carb
« on: October 05, 2013, 06:52:51 PM »
The original carb on my '28 was replaced with a Stromberg VRO- 1. I would like to replace it with the stock unit, but the price for a rebuilt unit is way above my budjet.

I rebuilt it and it runs good., but I would like to know how to adjust it. I problably should leave it be, but that's no fun.

Is anyone running this carb or have any knowledge of it?

Thanx for the modern gas tank float suggestion and will try that if needed.

I ordered and received two 2" dia. cork balls that I believe will be made to work. I also ordered 2 neoprene floats that are used in Ford Mod. A gas guages. Onr to replace the saturated cork in my fuel tank and one, perhaps in thr vacuum fuel canister.

I read that a Super Glue coating will eliminate gas saturation into the cork. We'll see.

Thank you all for the help and I'll post the results.

Thanx for the reply. Is your canister wrkind good?

I found a site that sells cork in blocks. I will try to carve it.

There is a clear sealer that seals the cork and resists gasoline penetration out there,but lost the name.

Any suggestions?

You may have a good point. I googled the oil that you use and the description sounds ideal. The only problem is it appears to be unavailable in the States.

I think I'll try Delo straight 30w or 40w diesel oil. It contains a healthy dose of ZDDP. I avoid Delo LE which is their modern equivalent with less ZDDP and zink.

I am attempting to rebuild the fuel canister on my '28.

It seems to be in pretty good shape except for the cork float, that is fuel saturated.
I think the original float was brass or steel.

Can anyone tell me where I can source a replacement float. A metal float would would be best, but may be hard to find.

I can't find a piece of cork big enough.

Do you guys have any advice or ideas?

Great reading your experiences with oil in our old MoPars. Makes sense to me. Thank you.

I'm thinking of sticking with Rotella 15/40. Lots of zinc and ZDDP.

Just FYI: I used to ride British motorcycles and the nuts, bolts and studs used a system called Whitworth.
Maybe the same as British Standard.

When I got my '28 Q six months ago I drained the oil and dropped the pan.

I cleaned about 1/2" of sludge form the bottom of the pan and put 4 quarts of Delo in and drove about 30 miles.

The oil was black so I dumped it and ran the Delo again. After about 30 miles the oil was black again. No clean up at all.

What do you folks recommend? Do you suggest I run non-detergent oil?

All and any input will be appreciated.
