Thanks for all of the good info. As I replied to one
lister, who suggested I use a petcock cutoff, I had a 1964 Ford Falcon and the
factory had a petcock inline to the heater hose to do the same thing. Simple
but effective. Car had no power and a York
compressor turning on was like hitting the brakes, but it got me around. I
have had little time for the ’55 Dodge yet but did take the time to
adjust the choke so it will crank easier.
