  • GAV sleeve

    filedata/fetch?id=10313&d=1554669844&type=thumbfiledata/fetch?id=10312&d=1554116815&type=thumbAs I have been rebuilding carburetors for a friend and club member and others, I have noticed that the sleeve below the spring has been oriented in the wrong direction. At least to ALL of my recollection.

    See pics below for proper orientation from my years.

    There is a logical and common sense reason for orienting it with the wide end down. Ever try to assemble it with the straight end down? You have to get those 2 shafts exactly aligned, where with the wider end down, all you need do is get them close and the taper will do the rest, and think about this move on the assemble line...

    i thought the belled end was up to capture the spring?

      Since the spring is the same diameter as the sleeve, there is no need to capture it.

        I thought that the bellow goes towards the spring:

          Now, just for S&G I looked it up in the JS, although on 1-14 it does show all 3 styles of sleeves, it however does NOT give a orientation, BUT it does show the sleeves with the taper to the right, which to me would say it is to remain to the right and attach as so.

          I've always put the belled end down. It's much easier to line up that way and like Da Wizard said, think about the assembly line and the speed they needed. I have put a washer between the spring and tube at times if I thought it was warranted.

            All the high points cars have the flare touching the spring. I wonder if there are any originals pictures to show this detail?

            I was thinking the flare was made to mate against the spring and have always installed them that way. Rod

                    I asked Mark Maron about the orientation on his fine point roadster. Flare end up towards the spring,
                    this and the other responses pretty much puts this to bed!!!!!!!!
                    i will add his pics to the fine point photo thread ...........

                    Don't toss those tapered kitchen table legs.
                    by pooch


                    Always hard to find metal bows, and I would never chop a restorable set.

                    This is what you can do with kitchen table legs.

                    I first flattened them to an oval, then sectioned a piece out where the bend is.

                    Then squared it a touch on the inside of the bend so it would fit in my stretcher machine, and pumped the curve into it.

                    The end pieces...

                    Ford swap at Eastern Creek on july 28.

                    34 cabriolet from Argentina.

                    37 sedan.

                    1920 T truck.

                    In the car park was this older build T bucket, 48 ? Sedan, 48 ? convertible.

                    Was a bit of speed gear there, and a complete lincoln V 12 motor in bits.

                    I am not fussed on trophies, I threw last year's one away.

                    It was Entrant's choice and a huge gaudy plastic gracelands type thing.

                    But this year, I won this, I figure I will keep this one, as I may fit a cup into it and use it as a beer mug...

                    This is a pictorial journey through a 1930 CCPU restoration by me and the next owner. I had to sell it partially completed because of my wife's health issues. It was bought by a gentleman in Missouri who is now in the final stages of the restoration. Brace's VFF Name is "Pickemup."

                    Temperature Sensors
                    by DaWizard
                    I wonder how many out there in Model A land have some sort of a temperature gauge, be it mechanical or electrical?

                    Well, here is a tidbit for helping to keep the temperature as accurate as the gauges allow.

                    I don't know if you have stock studs holding the head on or not, chances are, not, but the ones holding my head on are a wee bit longer and made this thinking a no brainer.
