1978 Firebird Cracked Holley Carb Baseplate “Repair” (Ep.7)

1978 Firebird Cracked Holley Carb Baseplate “Repair” (Ep.7)

YouTube

The Holley carburetor for our supercharged engine cracked a mounting flange the first time it was tightened down! Due to either the phenolic spacer or a warped baseplate surface, the ear cracked off even though the carburetor studs were tightened slowly and with care. We will make both a short-term repair using aluminum brazing rod (similar to Durafix), steel pins, and JB weld, and then make a long-term proper repair by replacing the baseplate entirely. Dates of filming: February 24th, 2018 (First Carb Install, Baseplate Cracked) February 26th, 2018 (Brazing Repair Attempt) February 27th, 2018 (JB Weld Repair Attempt) February 28th, 2018 (“Repaired” Baseplate + Carb Installed) March 27th, 2018 (New Baseplate Prep and Install) March 31st, 2018 (New Baseplate First Tune) Song List (Order of First Appearance): 0:00 Pickup Truck – Silent Partner 5:32 Humidity – Silent Partner 8:43 Hills – Riot (All music provided by YouTube's Audio Library royalty free.)
