1930 Mercedes meets 1981 pinto
« on: March 21, 2014, 09:56:09 PM »
Here is the deal. I just scored a 1930 Mercedes kit car and the motor is a 1981 pinto stock. I know absolutely nothing about these cars. I know my issue lies within the carb and fuel. Are there any how to's on changing fuel pump or just straight info on an 81 on this site?

First thing you need to do is get the correct year Pinto service manual. That will help you a lot right off the bat.
