Thx funk61 , will definitely be using that thread as a reference. Iíve played with the carb on a motorcycle and was able to find a basic rebuild kit online, Got it running again but seems to be a bit too lean and still needs adjustments...Im hoping it will all be much easier on the 63 once I locate a good rebuild kit for the Rochester.

With a little gas in the tank my fuel filter is the same as yours regarding fuel level. I'm getting sufficient gas to the carburetor though.

I had the gas fumes in the cab thing as well, I contributed it to the fuel gauge gasket. After tightening the screws it got much better, will be replaced soon as the gauge don't work.

Interesting are the knobs left and right from the ignition, is the right one a cigarette lighter? What does the left one do?

Whatís up Prowbar,
Glad you had good results after rebuilding the carb. Have yet to pin point the gas smell but maybe the rebuild will do some good after also inspecting the fuel gauge and other hoses. As for the knobs Starting from the far left knob it goes ; headlights , wipers , (steeringwheel) choke, cigarette lighter.

Someone moved the choke because they have 2 rights hands - usually people are cussed with 2 left hands. Bet the previous owner found out the choke cable was to short for the different carb application.
