Caller ID would have explained it, if I was Art Gardner!  But since Iím not, they had at least 2 1955 vacuum advance controllers at the same time, mine and Artís.

Motor case is black with a red Delco-Remy tag.  Part going into the transmission is bare cast metal.

Mid Century Cadillac Discussion / Re: Carburetor rebuilder recomendations?
« Last post by craig-o on June 17, 2018, 01:02:39 AM »
I, too, was intimidated by the prospect of rebuilding a Rochester 4GC as my first ever attempt at disassembling, cleaning and reassembling a carb.  Until I watched this 4-part video from Mikeís Carburetor Parts: https://m.
. This gave me the courage to try it myself.

I think the parts kit was in the neighborhood of $50 or so, and the process went very smoothly - just as in the videos.  I also purchased a can of chem-dip carb cleaner for ~$30 at the local auto parts store which came with a dunking/soaking basket. 

After completing the work, I think the hardest part was disconnecting and reconnecting the linkages.  If you feel confident enough to remove the carb to send it out for a rebuild, you should be more than capable of doing it yourself!
