Hi, my name is Tony Schapendonk, long time member.
I would like to create a new post about the process of installing an electrical fuel pump in parallel with a mechanical one.
There was an article in the VDC magazine some years ago, but I cannot find it.
I have a 1932 Hillman Wizard which has a mechanical fuel pump and an updraft carby which is unreliable.
The carby fuel evaporates pretty quickly, and I have to manually fill it before starting, or have to crank it over a lot before the bowl fills.
Has anyone successfully put an electrical one in parallel.
I understand one of the problems can be putting pressure on the mechanical diaphragm, and getting into the crankcase.
If anyone can help me , I am after a radio to suit a 50's model Chev. It does not need to be working as I only need it to fill the space the original radio used to be.
Regards Richard Osborne

WANTED – HOLDEN BODY BADGES
A month or two ago Doug Stevenson organised a run to view the collection of Roger and Ann Gibbs at Yea. It was a good run and the collection was very interesting. The highlight for me was Roger’s explanation of many of the items in the collection and the reason for them being there. I would have to say that Roger certainly has the gift of the gabb.
One part of Roger’s talk involved a discussion of the lion that appears on the Holden body badge. At this point Lindsay Truman commented on the fact that the lion should always look forwards so that there are right and left handed badges.
Here is a photo of one of each. The upper photo is the badge from the 1930 Oakland sedan I bought in 1971. (I still have the car and still intend to restore it.)
The lower badge is one that I was given for the “restored” sedan that I bought in 2003 as the badge was missing. Unfortunately it is meant for the other side of the car and looks backwards from the right side of this car.
If anyone has a spare badge like the upper photo and could spare it I would like to hear from you.
