The room is so much more presentable unfortunately I needed more room so I’m sure it’s going to look like a factory again. Got the word from dad the 383 and 440 is coming home soon so we can bolt some things down to not worry as much. The 383 is getting heads reworked and the block cleaned up bored also. We got a can of that turquoise ppg spray can paint from eBay the engine touch up for 41 dollars a can shipping and handling included tax also for the 383.. Their is no high heat plymouth turquoise paint I could find or dad could find so we bought the ppg because it’s no doubt the 383 is a Plymouth brand by its matching numbers transmission being a 2892093 code auto and old old paint on it. and Hemi orange for the 440 where just going to get autozone spray paint because it’s cheaper and works well in multiple coats. I’ll keep the page up to date.

Yea that where I’ll go after awhile and read. I learned after taking the 383 apart a ring gland tool is best to protect the piston and chamber from damage.

I’m new to this stuff so I’m no inventor I’m just imaginative without the intelligence. Have a good day.

It’s been pre coated using a propane torch on the engine so it’s not done yet. When I get around to the engine in a few months I’m going to sand it and coat it again after it cures. The Propane torch and cold weather work well especially cleaning the surface with fast drying alcohol prior to propane use. It’s ruff drafted right now.

I love the air cleaner top old paint looking aged didnt want to paint that.

getting everything ready to send off to have it all restored. Got gauge parts for parts for restoration to keep cost down I believe will help. My dad and I have to get caught up so where taking a break from buying instead while waiting I’m going to do labor. working for parts lol. I’m going 72-74 air conditioning with the driver side air vent. I got the chrysler solid state 8 track.

This is my favorite carburetor and wouldn’t take nothing less than 1000 for when it’s completely restored professionally certified and I really don’t ever want to sell it. A three digit date code list 4778 with no revisions. One of the most famous double pumpers is the 4778 and one of the most sought after. Still isn’t much of a google informal debate about where they started where they came from in much information from a journalist perspective but when that happens I’ll be ready when the google searches are there on the first page as these three digit are the most rarest 4778s. Ive learned to wait for market booms by informational searches on parts I think people see them and want to buy it from reading attention around it. I bought this as a main body within a package deal. I had to look all day to find 4778 with no dash revision parts for months. I finally bited on a sinker on eBay the only one I could find for months my luck one pops up a few days after sells for 180 dollars with all the parts in pretty sure that 4778 with no dash revision parts. Very rare and my favorite of all my carburetors. Where I learned to not smooth metal also-messed up on this carburetor thank god ive still got pictures of before.
