President’s Message: Jim Schultz

As I write this month’s president’s message I’m getting ready to head off to this year’s National Meet in Minden, Nevada. I have done my homework on Pinky making sure it will run properly and look its best. With the size of my fleet, sometimes one gets away from me and sits too long. Pinky was one that sat a little too long, so I had to go through the Rochester 4GC carb. The secondary circuits were plugged up from sediment so when I got on it I would get a nose dive and it didn’t go. I ordered a carb kit from Fusick’s and noticed a sticker on the outside indicating the kit was for ethanol fuel. The accelerator pump was blue in color and was made of a material ethanol friendly. The needle and seats were of a design I had not experienced before. Instead of the usual conical shape these looked like an inverted flare fitting for the seat and the needle was flat with a wafer shaped cap on the bottom. I had to readjust the float levels to compensate for this design.

After re-assembly and installation Pinky now runs like a top. I had not been into a 4GC for quite a while but it was like riding a bicycle—I didn’t forget how to do it. It was quite satisfying to go through the work and have it come out well.

We are going to be working on website updates and content. I’m asking again for member’s 1967–1979 Oldsmobile pictures. We can get pictures off the internet but I feel we need to post our cars. So if you have a 1967–79 Oldsmobile, let’s see it. Please follow the criteria for the front page pictures when taking shots of your car.

We are getting more Gathering Points for our members to attend. Look for a show near you. We want to encourage the membership to let us know of a show or swap meet in your region that NAOC members can attend. A point person is very helpful for contact information so our guys and gals can park together. Banners can be made available as well as membership applications.
