well, at long last I have a carburetor that is good and Sonny is up and running! And oh, how sweet he feels as he is zoomin' down the road! WooHoo!
I have the fuel cut off valve in it too and all is well! Man, that was a long time comin'.

Glad to hear that, and you are right, it has been a long time coming. Now get out there and have some fun.
After everything you went through, what ended up being the problem?

apparently there was still something stopped up in the carburetor. Jess rebuilt another one and we put it on..... and we also found one orifice that may have contributed to the problem, plugged it up........ took it out for a spin and woohoo! it was great! This morning I drove it almost to Amarillo, stopped in Hereford for fuel, not knowing how much I had or what sort of mileage I was getting. Turned out I was getting 30+ mpg! cool huh?
