Dates , lists , etc
05/24/16 at 21:14:05
 
there a shop near me is doin a 716 pack rr  and they werent confident to tune.  
The carbs on it appeared to be close to what a 69 1/2 car may use  
So i rebuilt a set of repop carbs and tuned them on my bee  
Boy does that rr run nice .  
They paid me for my rebuild kits and traded me .  
Did i do good ?
 
I ended up with these  
0929 list 4393  
1709 list 4391
0929 "" 4393  
 
Look like i might be missing a 4394
Maybe not ?  
Theyre clean i might rebuild them and run.  
Or maybe someone has an interest in trade ?  
Theres gotta be an easy way to id which carbs we need.  
Maybe theres a post , but goodluck finding when u need .

Looks like you came out pretty good on the carbs. You are right about the 4394 carb. You need one for a "complete" set. I'm thinking the dates need to be a little closer together too.
 
That sure is a nice looking RR. Always loved that color.
 
I'd like to see that set of carbs after the rebuild. They do look a bit worn out in the pic. Cool

They work pretty good too ..  
A little dialing in as expected with af machine ..  
But i think they did something different in 1969  
Vs 71 up carbs ..
Very happy with Bills job !

Very nice work. That center carb was really messed up.
