I saw in some reading a few weeks back that manual shift B bodies , maybe late 60’s have the same general type of thing..looks exactly the same on the carb anyway, above the mount parts, and the reason I noticed it, was it was “a new reproduction” that looked just like the ram pot, adjusting screw and all, but with a different mounting foot to go right on a carb bolt (I think); someone like Van’s ?
Apparently if you get on stick shift big block hard, and then off again fast, and push in the clutch, the fuel shot being rich, stalls it. Some story like that. But the antistall pot pops out and a opens the otherwise closed throttle , prevents that.
Your mileage may vary…but might be amenable to adapting to the ram mounting.
Is there someone else who rebuilds these pots and replates them besides Philbin Manufacturing? Are they zinc plated, "silver" in color?
About a year ago someone said that Philbin Manuf. in Portland OR rebuilt their anti-stall vacuum pot, the one that bolts to the long ram tube. They said that they got theirs back from whomever did the work and it was beautiful and worked perfectly. They also said that the unit was replated and everything. It looked brand new!
I just talked on the phone to Joe at Philbin who wasn't familiar with this pot. He said that they don't replate anything, just fix the problem (likely a bad diaphragm). We are now sending Philbin pictures so everybody is on the same page but...
So we would like hearing from those of you who have had their ram pots done by Philbin or any other company.
Thank you. We appreciate any Info. on the subject.
