Finally got the 40 to Colorado

Hello again from Colorado!

Well it took nearly ten years but the 40 is finally in Colorado Springs.
Back then I considered driving it home.

https://www.stovebolt.com/ubbthread...hevy-870-miles-am-i-nuts.html#Post804512

When the time finally came it just wasn’t in a safe condition to make the trip so we had it delivered.
It had been parked since 17. The carb was randomly flooding badly with gas pouring out and we found the master cylinder empty so decided to have it hauled home.

It’s going to take some effort to get things back in shape and I’m sure I’ll be asking for more than a little help.
Thanks in advance for the assistance.

Welcome back.. but sadly that ole truck is past its prime... you should just have it hauled up to Loveland and set it in front of my garage. Congrats on getting it home. My father and I road tripped from Southern California to Grants Pass Oregon to pick up my 39 back when.


Another quality post.

I'd rather walk and carry a Chevy hub cap than ride in a Ferd.

Thanks everyone.
Well I’ve got the carb off and torn down. Turns out the float was dropping too far and the needle was getting cocked to one side and not closing consistently. The carb is all cleaned up, just waiting on the rebuild kit with the new float etc. so I can put it all back together

Karl, it is never a good idea to post your phone # on an open public forum. You might want to edit your post. Have a great day.
