    251 engine bearing part #?

    Ok, the crank got turned down .020. Though they're pretty convinced its from a 218 industrial based on the part numbers stamped on the bearings that were in it. Is there a way to id the crank? He wrote the casting number down for me on the receipt (955194), I'll measure the rod length in the morning. This engine has been rebuilt at least once in its life, so not a stretch to think that the crank/rods got switched out. The block has been bored .060 already, and could use it again, what is the maximum it can be taken? I've read that the small bore blocks can be bored out to the larger 3 7/16 bore, so I may end up doing that with the original 228 (it had spun a rod bearing, leading me to buying the 251), and using the 251 crank and rods (if that's what they actually are) and get a 251 with the original block.

    The original MoPar # is 619129....1946-50 Chrysler 8 cylinder only cars. I have never been able to cross it directly to a modern seal by number.

    Body mounts

    Does anyone know where I can find new body mounts for a 1949 two door special deluxe?

    not sure on that. I know the later COEs had a door added at the front but I believe that was for engine access not cab cooling. I've seen most of those options but no idea about an AM radio. There certainly isn't a spot in the dash for one. I've got electric wipers for my truck along with arm rests, dome light, heater, and the air seat. Dads 40 plymouth came with the 4spd but he swapped it over to his 46

    Molly Time!

    I also have to agree, for some reason in the photo they just looked off kilter a bit. The flare seems larger and more pronounced. I talked again to the seller today, to confirm that all was good and everyone was happy. He had a DR's appointment today, he is 68 years old and had some of those red sun spots removed from his skin, as to not cause cancer later. He said he was going to load the truck up in the morning and bring it over, I told him to relax a few days and recover, take your time .... he said would let me know either way, but I may get it tomorrow. He actually has 2 more pilothouses for sale, A 52 3/4 ton flatbed with a 283 and no transmission, and a 1 ton wrecker with the winch removed, has a olds engine with a 4 speed. Curious to talk to him, in person and you never know what may pop up. Like all mopar people, he is a decent interesting person to talk to.

    Underhood lamp where installed

    I would say that this type of mercury lamp would have to be install on the allegator style hood and not on the side opening or butterfly style hood. i have a factor mopar under hood lamp for my 39 Desoto that mounts onthe firewall and there isa rod that pushes the lamp down when the butterfly hood is closed.

  12. Moving right along with making sure my 1949 Chrysler New Yorker, 8 cyl, presto matic is road worthy I added oil to the rear end. Now I see that the pinion seal is worn and it is not clear what number will replace it. Any ideas? the specs on the car are VIN number is: 7099948, Model Code C46-2 And again, thanks for all the advice on previous questions.

    Sand blaster advice

    I have 2 harbor freight units. they work ok with some fiddling. Ended up buying a quality nozzle and dead-man valve at a car show. works much better. I use the black beauty sand which has no silica. I still use a mask and a fabric hood. I have a 4 cylinder compressor so air is not an issue. I have also used one of the dustless blasters. They work well but you can have issues with them as well. Rob

    seal under front cap

    Thanks PA. Yes, they fit into the grooves. It is actually a tight fit, and they will not fall out once pressed in.

    Axle switching

    At this point I would look for a modern axle without tapered ends for ease of maintenance. 8" Ford, early mustang / Maverick/Falcon is a good fit, better brakes. 8.8 Explorer, 7.5 Fords and other Mopar axles. Adam

    Overheating. 210 in a 160 thermo

    I think that's an external bypass head, hard to tell but I don't see the bump on the front... Also, my 49 Wayfarer has an external bypass head (no bump) but an internal bypass thermostat housing as you have. Several other Wayfarers I have seen are set up the same way. Adam

    Thanks Sharps40! Did you do a thread on your car? Just wanting to see some photos of the process.

    I have also been successful on Craigslist, it is not the price..it is not so much the merchandise...It is getting them to RESPOND that was the purpose of my thread...followed by the fact that majority of them will sell the item, never remove the ad.....it is these that I believe giving the listers the overall bad rating....I get the impression they out spending their money and have no regard to take the ad down or ever check their notifications.

    Mine is a 37 dodge 4 door d5 touring sedan. Front suspension is Fatman. 37 Plymouth front frame is same/same as dodge, back doors, running boards and rear vent windows are not. In any event, even the Fat Man made to fit kit is not made to fit until you make it fit. Anybody says otherwise has not installed one! Good kit, same amount of work as about any universal weld in cross member kit plus a bit more for the humped front frame arms.

    In the past 10 years or so I have bought countless items that I found on Craigslist. I have also sold equally as much. I can't complain. I am trying to recall a bad experience. I can't think of one. I must add that I even found used hard to find stuff on Craigslist in Denver, Nova Scotia, Dallas...All over the place. I live in Western Canada. I contact the seller and I can tell in a few emails if they are reputable. I have totally exposed myself and sent money orders to far away places. A few weeks later my purchase shows up. I don't recommend this, but if you know your stuff, and you converse with the seller, you can quickly tell exactly what type of seller you are dealing with. Two times in my life I got scammed while buying on-line. Both times were E-bay sellers. I have saved so much money buying used stuff on Craigslist, it's been awesome.

    Thanks for the clarification. I read an ardvertisement that talked about cowl/cab options - possibly talking about COE vs. standard cab? How Stuff Works had an interesting article about the 46 Dodge trucks. They listed the following as extra cost options - nothing about vent windows - possibly no additional cost? ”Extra-cost equipment included a larger clutch, four-speed transmission, oversize tires, electric driver's wiper, heater, chrome windshield frame, adjustable visor, driver's armrest, dome light, turn signals, "airfoam" seat with leather upholstery, and --- real luxury this -- an AM radio.”

    Rear window size on Dodge pickups

    I thought the center glass was a different size from a 3 window cab to a 5 window cab. Going off memory from my 49’ camper.

    I recently sold my 39 Plymouth rumble seat convertible on CraigsList. I only had it advertised locally, but it sold to a fellow 2900 miles away! I did include a phone number, as I feel it should be required. Both parties are happy!

    1937 Dodge, Ol Bessy Is Coming Home!

    Do not confuse me with Sharps40 who does have a 37 Plymouth. I do not. I have a 50 Plymouth Suburban with a Fatman frame stub and MII suspension. Was intalled about 12-14 years ago. Was not much choice back then. Their stuff was OK but suspension in on the smaller diameter tubes and Does Not have the support on the lower arm tube I mentioed to Sharps40 earlier. If/when I continue with this car I will add that suppert for sure!! DJ

    Tail-light upgrade?

    ok.....maybe the insurance of the guy who rear ends you pay all the cost...… safety is not often cheap....how many times does pay to play come up here......each of us value certain things in a different manner....some like them fancy shiny hubcaps....other like the nice clear rearview mirrors and better lighting....what you want to pay...well I do not think that is always clear cut and fair to one is over the top to another...that is why we have so many choices to the average consumer...

    Tail-light upgrade?

    Technostalga does offer a complete LED P15 tail light unit .... which in my opinion looks real good. It is all plastic but only comes in 12 volts. Definitely brighter and easier to see. For a while they also made a 6 volt light, which is what I have....but have stopped making them due to low demand. I don't think they made them for any other models. If you have questions, you should be able to contact Todd at Technostalga. Should be a phone number on their website.
