  1. DI am looking for a rattle it starts rattling at 38-40 MPH and makes me wonder if it is linkage or the engine at too high working range. I have decided to keep my 218 for the summer install the 3.55 grand wagoner rear end picked up the rusty hope kit with a firewall booster kit from a t-bucket supply house. The kit runs a chevy dull chamber ms. Mounts up where it can be worked on or fluid added with ease. I know iam not a purest. Still going with the slant six later on. I will put on the 2 barrel Vega carb as i seen this set up on a 218 not much more power but it does have the acel type pump on it. My main problem is the noise. At start up it seems smooth no noise. So i think that i can rule out the chatter of the tappets. I think it might be linkage, it is still too Is your cold to look at this time. Still picking up brake rotors ect. King pings you know the dance. I seen the carb linkage has a lot of parts also. Do we all have the same problem with noise?
  2. 225 slant six change

    I checked with Napa and they have very few parts for the 218. I wrote a long rant about what and why then it hit me, I always just thought the slant was cool. On our farm we had all types of flatheads even a hudson straight 8. Most of my friends had the old Mopar, Ford, and Chevy's. Dodge is like Ford both cost a lot to rebuild i was told the rebuild on my 52 was 1000.00. The 225 and the 903 is just whats I plan on using I do not have the need for speed, i just want to look good when i take Anna to Steamboat for a burger and brew. The three speed is also cool but reminds me of the old oliver we had. I am smiling just thinking about it.

    Gramps i told you that the tranny was a 727. It turns out to be a 904 so hope it works out like your swap. When I pull the 218 i will post the tranny and engine if anyone might be interested. The engine runs very well was rebuilt and parked in the same year but my cousin. He told me that he did not put enough miles on to give it a good brake in does not smoke or go though oil. I will try to post pictures of it running send me a line if your interested.

    Thanks for the help and suggestions. The jeep 258 is a supper engine, out here in western Colorado the Jeep guys go to Moab Ut. A lot of them use the 258 because of its gobs of pull but does not spin the tires like a hoped up rig. Take a special kinda crazy to climb like that.
  6. After thinking about problems with a frame swap i dropped that idea. I thought i would put the jeep 2.55 rear with a 67 Plymouth 225 with a 727 auto. This should get us up to highway speed as all roads here are 65mph. With rustyhope disk up front as well as the jeep rear. If you have any ideas or any suggestions i would like to hear them. What about putting a holly 2 barrel on in place of the stock carb that is on there I have one in the shop, this might be a time to use it? I always was a ford guy till now but, friends that had the dusters with the slant and three speeds always impressed me. I know that these 225's have good torque, and are bullet proof.

    Thanks i was just thinking and it came to me that the battery box in ol rufus is not a closed box only partly closed. From under the truck i used a stick to push the floor pan over the battery and used a hanger to reach door handle and pulled the door open. WOW that was a close one. So remember that if your truck does not have a full battery tray this works very well. Thanks for the help.
