Pronnounced: SHAMI

Good fer: Loin Cloths.
ALSO............FILTERING WATER FROM
New GAS.

Before I puts the new gas in my engines, here, it will be "standard procedure" to run the gas from the pump thru a CHAMOIS.

Sorta like gett'N gas into the tanks of P-51's in the Pacific ISLES, outta 50 gal barrels.

The CHAMOIS is the layer of the sheep hide, right under the fur. Sorta like the leather you want to put CORDIVAN shoe polish on. CORDIVAN, HORSE hide.

John, I finally got one. I worked the refuelling trucks at YVR in '64 -'65 (80-87 & 100-130). Every morning we were required to "water test" each compartment in the truck (4) and run the gas through a chamois lined funnel. The next step was to climb up on the truck and put the filtered gas back in-duh. I however failed to do so regularly with the 100-130, I put it in my own car, a '38 Chevy sedan. When I got home I would siphon out 5+ gallons and put in my '55 Chevy 'C' gasser---still got a few trophies laying about !!

I read about this over 50 years ago and forgotten it. Thanks for bringing back the memory.

I remember a story I read in grade school about two men and a kid out fishing on a big lake. Somehow the outboard gas got water in it and they were stranded with a big storm brewing. What to do, what to do?
Then the one guy remembered he was wearing his favorite chamois jacket.
It pained him greatly to tear it apart but they pulled the lining out of it and used the hide to filter the water out of the gas.
The outboard ran good then and they made it back to shore safely.
Nice story written from the kid's perspective with a tip about chamois that I've never forgotten.

Funny, I was talking to a friend a couple days ago and "shammy" for filtration purposes came up, and we found we both remembered reading the same story as kids. I think it's one of those things that anyone with a mechanical bent remembers, while everyone else just reads it and forgot.

BTW there are modern water separation filters that can filter much faster than a chamois, pretty much as fast as you can pour it, much easier to use, and quite reasonably priced.

-----I had a '55 "C" gasser. Remember building a 301 cubic inch motor with a old Corvette 283/270 manifold and used two WCFB carbs and yes the wonderful 097 (Duntov) cam. Used a t-10 trans. and 4-56 gear.

while i hate ethanol in gas.. it will serve to help and hinder onthe water part.

a small amount of water will no longer glob up.. at least untill the soloution is saturated. the bad side is that you are now carrying alot of fuel that likes water. Sad

Does chamois require any special care after running gas thru it? Thanks!

I poured a lotta mile thru 'em when I was an "apprentice" to be a dairyman.

Filters good fer gett'n foreign debris outta milk goi'N into cans. But, only garlic taste will pass thru GURNSEY milk while pouring mostly water thru.

However, I strain "spent" oil thru the filters, now. Good fer tractors, mowers, and service vans. Profitable when servicing car engines.

RECYCLING OIL!
