The AC fuel pump for the 216 / 235 with glass bowl is #1523429. I'm sure most local parts stores can cross reference this number. Merry Christmas everyone! <>< Whitney Haist Orinda, CA Chevy Trucks:

Is a blue bird blue? I swear, if all 216s ran like the one (with Carter W-1) in my '46, there would have been no need for automotive technology advancement beyond that point! Okay, MAYBE the mechanic

This looks like a good application for paint remover. Aircraft paint remover, sold in auto body supply houses, works great. Since chrome is not an ideal base for paint, with the remover, the paint sh

HI Jim, I presume you're talking about your '46 clutch pedal. Sounds like a case of worn out bushing if the pedal will move from side to side. Carter sells a set of pedal bushings that will fix the b
