    Im toying with the idea of just laser cutting one out. I have all the specs for it so just need to autocad it and make it

    start with 12V, run on 6V

    If the system isnt too much money it sounds like a great product. You can still use the 6 volt starter if you dont crank it too long. 12 volts makes it really turn over.

    A833 trans adapter plate ordering ??

    Outstanding, great detail and finish, looks great. Just wondering what carbs you're running. Is that an offy intake ? Are you on the road with this rig ? Thanks, Gordon.
  5. Is it possible to fine tune the speedometer at the speedometer head ?

    The original axle and bearing was certainly stubborn and required more effort to pull out. I guess the old bearing cone gets corroded and held in place. It was a lot harder to pull than the one I recorded in the video above. The video showed pulling the axle, with the new bearing installed. I was pulling it a few times to set up shims and measure end play. It indeed did come out really easy.

    On the discussion of wheel alignment though, i found an online service manual describing how to set camber, toe in and complete a wheel alignment

    @Bobby198412 I decided to record a few of the other axle procedures that I learned from members here along the way. This was my first time going into the axle as well. Here is an outer grease seal video if you are interested: https://youtu.be/E4FiF6h5mtQ

    @Plymouthy Adams crime rate is actually quite horrendous in the prairies, but this was the pain i first dealt with.

    WOW...what is the crime rate for that area that a man has to protect his wheels with welds...?

    start with 12V, run on 6V

    Is the starter close to the exhaust manifold? Is the heat riser for the intake on the starter side? I had a VW Rabbit (Golf) with a similar problem, l made a sheet metal heat shield that fit between manifold and starter. In addition, l got some metal 3 inch clothes dryer ducting and rigged it up to provide ambient airflow from behind the grill directed toward the starter. This solved the problem. Wonder if you might have some armater sections that are bad ? You said you had put new bushings, did you test the armature? You might want to pull the starter and take it to a shop for a thorough test.

    I give this quick hit and go procedure first option to pull an axle, usually it is easy and convenient....the one in the video I think you could have pulled with a toothpick and dental floss......I banged and banged with zero give on the last two I pulled using the drum, started to rain so I quit for a bit and returned to the scene of the crime with the flywheel which bumped them right out. I have a slide puller but for the life of me cannot put my hand on the crow's foot.

    Yes these are universal model. Purchased those. Too low, too wide and no ribs.

    I had some pretty big issues with it but have made alot of progress. Previous owner had welded the rear rims to the hub assembly, so i had a bitch of a time removing the rear hubs. Its ultimately why i chose to do an axle swap. The plan is to rebuild the original driveline and put it all back in. Im more of a chevy guy, but was told to buy this dodge as most are rusted out and not in this condition. Its grown on me. I had alot of luck finding parts in portland in april and will be going again next year to search for harder to find parts such as the grille

    I'm Hearing Something New...A Bearing Howling?

    Did as you suggested @Dodgeb4ya. Re-measured. Still zero clearance. Added back in a .005 shim on one side only. Tightened up and gave the axles another rap with a hammer. Now I have about .0025 to .003 end play thou on each axle. Seems like I am there. Reassembling the rest now. Thanks again.

    You really made a score on that one. That car is in amazing condition for one that has sat outside in a junkyard.

    @knuckleharley i posted an ad over the winter looking for a pre 50s project vehicle, specifically a sedan as ive always liked the style. A friend of a friend runs a wrecking yard in Love, Saskatchewan and i was delivering a vehicle up there anyways so i swung by and got this. He has well over a thousand vehicles in varying conditions, but the only rust holes on this are through the trunk floor and a dime sized surface rust hole in a door post. I completed an axle swap and headlight conversion on it but the rest is stock. $800 for the car when i got it.

    Buy a professional puller kit with all the accessories because they are very handy for pulling dents out,as well. If it were me,I would buy any brand made in America. You can never go wrong buying stuff like this from your local NAPA store. The price is usually competitive,and nothing beats the convenience of dropping by a local store to have a broken part replaced for free,or to pick up a part you have lost.

    last axle I pulled I used an old flywheel as the weight to bump it out of the tube......most any of the axle pullers should be able to do the job.....I would buy an all in one kit that had the axle foot and various other attachments for seals, dents and misc. other application. this is just one inexpensive unit.... https://www.ebay.com/itm/16Pc-Axle-Slide-Hammer-Dent-Panel-Puller-Set-Internal-External-Use-Tool-Kit-KJ/222557216861?epid=11003958114&hash=item33d171a05d%3Ag%3A2cUAAOSwm3paHpAW&_sacat=0&_nkw=slide+hammer+puller+set&_from=R40&rt=nc&LH_TitleDesc=0|0

    Thanks Dodge. I will give the axles a dead blow, re-check clearances and report back.
