    6vdc fan motor to 12vdc

    ptwothree Thanks for the tip on the resister. I did purchase a step-down voltage reducer for my gas gauge and it works great. No more guessing how much is in the tank. I have been all over my engine and can't seem to find the temperature sending unit. I can see from behind the temp dash gauge someone has cut it off but that is all I have. Any ideas where the sending unit on the engine is? Thanks!
  3. 48p15sdccoupe "my kids are in the garage with me learning and “tinkering” on the car as much as they can" I love this idea. I remember the times I spent with my Dad. Go for it!

    6vdc fan motor to 12vdc

    Thanks DJ I just Googled it and found one on RS for £7.15. Funny but I have looked before and nothing but when I put in your 100w 1RJ up it came. Now I need the switch. Steve

    Thanks guys. That brings me to the next dilemma. Living in England parts are not as plentiful as they are in the U.S. I will scour the internet and hopefully find something here.

    I'm from Minnesota and I HATE ROUND-A-BOUTS!
  7. 48p15sdccoupe It may just be me but it always seemed that there was always friction between Ford and Chrysler owners. Myself I would never drop a Ford Drivetrain in anything except the ocean. lol My point earlier is you may be limiting you resale market with that Ford drivetrain. Also Torqueflight transmissions from what others have said and from personal experience are bulletproof. (If only my Dad knew what I use to do to his 65 New Yorker with a 413 cu in engine and Torqueflight tranny.) It's just something to think about.

    I tell you what there is nothing like driving an American car on the wrong side of the road here in England.
  9. Nice looking car! One thing you might have overlooked is resale value. I realize you said you do not have any concerns about this but at some point, you may have to or may want to sell the car and you may be limiting your potential market by having a Ford drivetrain in a Plymouth. Myself my stock 37 Plymouth is just fine. I do not need to go 90 mph, 60 is fine. But to each his own. Good luck to you. Give us some pics when it's finished.

    6vdc fan motor to 12vdc

    Unfortunately, I do not have any switches for the fan. of the 4 knobs at the bottom of the dash, I only have a choke and a modern light switch. I only see 1 wire coming from the fan motor

    6vdc fan motor to 12vdc

    I have a 1937 Plymouth with a d42 engine. The car has been converted to 12VDC but the heater fan motor is still 6VDC what can I do to make this motor operational? Also, my instruments are not hooked up yet so; 1) can I run the fuel gauge and sending unit on 12 vdc ? 2) what will I need to hook up the temp gauge 3) I am missing the amp meter is there a replacement for my 12volt system?
  12. Hi all, my1937 Plymouth has a worn Pittman & draglink. I am finding it hard to find these parts. Does anyone have any idea where to find these parts or can I adapt something? I would like to keep it as stock as possible. Thanks

    Engine Timing for a D42 flathead

    Adam, Thanks for the photo. I went to have another look at the timing marks. The wind was blowing quite briskly and as I had my head in the engine the wind ........... You guessed it Those hood doors are heavy! Oddly I didn't get a bump but it was enough to say that's enough for today. :o)

    Engine Timing for a D42 flathead

    Thanks Adam for your reply. I am not sure what electronic conversion I have. I have just bought the car and the person I purchased it from did the converting. At what RPM were you running when you did the timing? Also which side is the timing marks on? I presume the driver side but its hard to see on this car.
  15. I have a 1937 Plymouth P4 with a D42 flathead 6, I believe that gives her a 1952 engine. She has new electronic ignition and been converted to 12 Volt. Could someone tell me what the proper timing and RPM should be?
