Now that tour season is upon us in N. America(kind of), time to think about our fuel systems. Check out website for The Carb Doctor for suggestions on dealing with the fuels we have today. They also recommend rebuilding your fuel pump every ten years as a service item (provided you use one). The pump diaphragm can get attacked by modern gas. Also check the Photo gallery for a picture of a Stromberg UX2 restored carb, which is in the same family that the 22A uses. Further, as Norm Toone has mentioned in a earlier post; Vintage and Classic Reproductions from Australia is shutting down when their stock is exhausted. They cast the U2 carb(whole or part) in aluminum. Those pot metal float chamber covers are easy to break!
Very wise advice Ross for all Durantonians before the touring season starts. Over the years I'm kind of amazed how many of our members bring their cars to our events and never even get their cars out of the garage or off the trailers to take them on a run and check them out. For that matter check the oil, water levels etc. Of course even if they do it doesn't mean that they will not have a break down, but some of the problems might be avoided.
