I’m looking for:

- water pump
- Carter WDO 2bbl
- rebuild kit for Carter
- vacuum advance
- spring weights for mech advance
or a good play free distributor with good advances

Cheers, Wilfred

    Try Dale Cooper. Hudson Motor Car Company he has a web site.

    Try Daytona Auto parts for rebuild kit or getting carburetor rebuilt.  https://daytonaparts.com/

    Dale Cooper has a good water pump.

    Lance Walker might have a distributor.

    I have a WDO 776s carburetor that can be rebuilt, I rebuild these Carter carbs on a frequent basis.

    Thanks for the answers!

    Ken, this looks different from my WDO. Is it bigger? I have the 262cui six and it now has a holley 2300 single pump 2bbl that’s rated for 350cfm and always smells of unburnt fuel. I believe it’s way too big for this engine. Where does the 776s come from?

    I am sorry,  that is the newer, and better WGD for 1951-54 262, it will work on your 49 262, and probably improve the driveability some.

    Cool, great idea! So it’s a bolt-on on the stock manifold? I’m gonna broaden my search then :)

    I’ve contacted Dale yesterday, waiting for a quote. 

    In the mean time, does anyone know if there is an interchangeable part for the vacuum advance? I can’t find any vacuum advance for the ‘49…

    On wrphet I could not find one for the ‘49 Six, that’s why I’m not sure which one I can use. Also I’m not sure if I need to send the core first? I live overseas so that’s brohibitively expensive :(

    Rhodora, are you aware of the Svenska Hudsonklubben?  http://www.hudsonsweden.se/

    I wonder if they are aware of vendors of Hudson parts in Europe?  It's a long shot, but you might try them.
  • Ken U-TxKen U-Tx Posts: 3,890Senior Contributor
    Jon B, I supply the Swedish Hudson owners with much of the needed parts. They do not have many if any spares to sell.

    I can supply a later IAT-4009A or B Autolite distributor for the 262 with a new vacuum advance, It is a better distributor than the original IGS 4213-1, and easier to get the vacuum advance, points, cap, and rotor for. Also for the carburetor, I have a WGD 776S which was used from 1950 to 1953 on the 262, and it is an improvement over the older WDO 647S or A.

    Hi Ken, I don’t know if you’ve seen my PM but I’m interested in the ignition and carb. Can you contact me? Thanks :)

    Hallo Wilfred, ik was een beetje druk met het maken van nieuwe onderdelen van het brandstofsysteem. Ja, ik heb een herbouwde waterpomp en ik ben begonnen met de herbouw van een Autolite 4009A ontstekingsverdeler. Ik kan ook de WGD 776S carburateur reviseren. Ik heb veel tijd in Nederland doorgebracht, in Freisland Sneek, Heerenveen, Langweer en omgeving. Ook in groter Amsterdam. Door de jaren heen heb ik veel Hudson onderdelen naar Nederland en Europa gestuurd. Vriendelijke groeten, Kenneth

    Hier zijn enige foto's......

    En niet te vergeten foto's van de WGD 776S. Kijk goed naar de gasklep koppeling, het zou hetzelfde moeten zijn als uw WDO, als het hetzelfde is, zal het werken op uw 1949 262-motor, waarschijnlijk een beetje beter en beter benzineverbruik dan de oude WDO 501S.

    Hi Ken, thanks for your reply! Is the forum translating or are you actually typing Dutch? :D

    Looks good!

    The WDO I have has the same butterfly Axle connector. I do not have the original rod though (the one that is positioned over the engine) because that one has been butchered to make the holley work. So I’d need that rod too…

    Carb is all apart, will order a kit and some new base to manifold gaskets. Already cleaned the cast iron throttle body of the carburetor in ultrasonic cleaner, rust and grime is gone.
