Dripping fuel, scarred-up fittings, and time-consuming wrenching can make installing a carburetor a real pain. Why make installing and testing more work than it has to be? The Jiffy-tite Quick-Connect Carburetor Kit saves time and makes changeovers a breeze. Unlike an old-fashioned threaded-fitting setup, this innovative kit allows you to connect or disconnect the fuel line(s) in seconds with no tools. There's absolutely no wrenching required for a high-flow, 100-percent leakproof seal. To connect, simply pull the socket collar back and insert the male plug on the fuel line. Then release the collar-just listen for the click, and the carb is ready to go. Disconnect with a simple pull on the collar and the valve design keeps the fuel safe inside the line-without having to drain your fuel bowl. The unique, patented Quick-Connect design works with most of the popular high-performance carburetor applications on the market. Designed to be lightweight for race applications, Jiffy-tite Carburetor Kits are sold standard-valved in either AN size -6 or -8, with aluminum washers, and are available to work with 7/8-inch x 20, 9/16-inch x 24 and 5/8-inch x 20 applications in a variety of adaptive styles. Viton (fluorocarbon) seals are standard. However, for alcohol and methanol applications, Buna N (Nitrile) seals and EPDM seals are available.

Mar-K now makes Ford '53-72 Flareside tailgates that use hidden latches and link assemblies to open and close the back of the bed. The latches are inside the bed, so the outside has a clean, smooth look. This tailgate is perfect for those who want the custom, flush appearance, but don't want the traditional tailgate chains, which are noisy and sometimes damage the paint finish. Included with the tailgate is a customizing kit to convert your current bedsides to work with the latching mechanism and links. For more information, contact Mar-K Quality Parts at 405/721-7945.
