Yes Tom, I got the converter back at no charge. Unfortunately I can't put it in with one arm in a sling. Next year.

What can I do with one working arm. Rebuilt the carbs made return spring brackets and started on the fuel line.

Bob, That's a stand up converter company to make the deal right.

Linkage and return spring setup looks like it will get the job done. Have you got the carbs rebuilt and back together?

Do you think you will be able to start that 300 beast without any choke plates?

Even keeping at it a little is great.

Don't give up, it's far too much fun once you can drive it.

I made a very primitive scoop. Arm still in the sling but I can use the hand a bit
Bought two of the next larger venturi carbs (1.14) in case the existing ones (1.08) prove to be too small.

Well, the 2 carb set up didn't work. We put the single 4 bbl. back on for the Fall Out Drags at Eau Claire. It was cool and lots of cars ran personal bests. Dave was driving and ran a 11.60 @ 118mph. Been moving things around in the cockpit to make more room for Dave as he is about 80 pounds heavier than me. Told him if he loses the weight the car will be a tenth quicker.
Here's a pit pic from the Fallout. Notice I'm the only one working on the car.
