Yep, there was a piece of tape there and I did find the screw. Although, it did not resolve the problem. I turned it one way and the other, but not signal was received. I also double checked the co ...

One thing I noticed is that I don't have the condenser on the generator or near the radio. But I'm also trying to get a signal without the car running so right now not sure if a condenser is needed. ...

Thanks everyone for all the recommendations. I will check for continuity of the antenna. I also swear I did not find that adjustment screw, but I will look again. I don't know if the radio worked p ...

I looked for one earlier today. No screw on the back of the radio.



I believe there is an antenna trimmer adjustment screw on the back of the radio. Not really sure how it works, but hopeful ...

Anyone have any experience with old AM radios? I have a 61 with the original Sapphire 1 by Bendix. All I get is static. I put a new antenna on it, but only static. Not even a very weak signal. I'm gue ...

I'm working on my 61 which is 6v. Got wipers to work (grounding issue), got one rear brake light to work, still trying to figure out why the other one isn't. I think grounding, but my question is on ...

Makes sense. Can try that.



Maybe a dumb suggestion, but to get a stronger idea of how well (or not) the vacuum canister works, besides doing the manual suction test, you can temporarily instal ...

I checked it again before heading out to work. I sucked on the vacuum hose and the dizzy turned counterclockwise until it stopped. I used my lip this time instead of my tongue to hold the suction. ...

The dizzy turns when I suck on vacuum line, but I don't think it holds. I put my tongue on the line to plug it off, but it slowly goes back to original position.

When I suck on the vacuum line, the dizzy turns quite a bit. How much? I don't know how to measure that. I did put my tongue on the end of the line and it tends to slowly turn back to original pos ...

I found a 30 PICT 1 in my carb pile (I only have three other carbs). I might put that on the car and see how it runs.




I wasn't aware of the difference in vacuum signal between the 28 and 30 ...

I emailed him about my carb and the ones he sells.

I would keep your R 2 distributor and get a 28 PICT restored by this guy who has a good reputation on this site:

Yes, it is a 1961. I would like to keep the car as original as possible. I did spray a little starter fluid on the throttle shaft and it did rev up a bit. I tightened the nut on the shaft a little ...

I just read on JBUGS site when looking at the 30pict1 carb that it does not have enough suction for a SVDA, so I guess that won't work for me unless I change the dizzy.

The jetting is another one I wondered about. I messed with them before I did the engine rebuild, but not sure what to run or what should be in the 28PICT. I need to google again.

I believe it is the Zv/ Pau 4 R 2. It is the match for the 28PICT and original to the car.



What distributor do you have on your car? If you change out the carb you will need to make sure the s ...

Yes, I previously verified this. I can suck on the vacuum line and I watch it turn.

I would also verify the vacuum advance is working to spec.
