    Wax Capacitor on P-15 Fuel Gauge

    Thanks, Rich I have been working on these cars since 1972 and this is the first of these add-ons I have come across. It slips right over the fuel gauge terminals. FYI, the dealer- installed radio is a MoPar 602, by Colonial Radio, LIC, NY, which has been recapped already. Ward

    Wax Capacitor on P-15 Fuel Gauge

    Hello Group I am in the process of rewiring my 1946 and I see an old wax/cardboard condenser attached to the fuel gauge. Amazing what a bright work-light reveals. Does anyone have details on this part; its rating, part number, modern replacement, function? Thanks for any help! Ward Duffield Pine Plains, NY

    Vacuum Booster fuel pump NOISE

    I just found this helpful overview: http://what-when-how.com/automobile/fuel-pumps-automobile/ I guess I will cut the steel lines and install sections of rubber hose at both ends. Thanks again. Ward

    Vacuum Booster fuel pump NOISE

    Has anyone found any photos or diagrams to share of a stock vacuum booster pump installation? I have most of my five-year resto sorted, but still have not finalized the plumbing for the vacuum booster pump. Thank you Ward

    Vacuum Booster fuel pump NOISE

    I searched quite a few manuals and online and never did find any photos of a stock installation; I assumed the air being expelled from the vacuum pump should go into the intake. In any event, I have disconnected that line and it is quiet so we shall see. I did also find photos of what I believe to be a cylindrical metal check valve or a muffler (??) in the rubber line to the firewall, but no one seems to know what they are or where to get one. In these cases the vacuum source was the intake manifold, and the cars were apparently convertibles, as I have. Photos attached. Since my system seems to work without this part, it is on the back burner. Thanks again for all replies! Ward

    Vacuum Booster fuel pump NOISE

    Hi DJ Thanks so much for taking the time to respond. When I removed the steel line from the intake manifold, the noise just about disappeared. Also, with it hooked up, there seems to be almost no vacuum at the carburetor port which attaches to the distributor advance unit ??? Ward

    Vacuum Booster fuel pump NOISE

    Yes, because the vacuum port on the carb is sourced above the throttle plate but it did seem weak. Thanks Ward

    Vacuum Booster fuel pump NOISE

    Hi Group I just installed a freshly rebuilt, NOS AC booster fuel pump on my rebuilt 218. It is making good vacuum and the fuel flow is good. The car's rubber vacuum line, which runs thru the firewall, is connected to a a hard line to the "IN" port of the vacuum pump. There is another hard line from the pump's "OUT" port to the intake manifold port below the carburetor flange. The car runs well, BUT the pump is as loud as HELL; it sounds like a bad rod, and I wonder if anyone else has experienced this. You can feel the rapping thru the suction line when the engine is running. Thanks! Ward Duffield 1946 P-15 Pine Plains, NY

    The Rough Field Spotters Guide for Mopar Overdrives

    Well, I am putting an r10g1 overdrive in my 1946 P-15- Does anyone have photos of the control cable installation? I don't know where it goes under the dash, through the firewall, etc. Thanks Ward

    Overdrive CABLE in P-15

    Hi Group Happy New Year! Can anyone provide suggestions for the best way to add an Overdrive lockout cable to my stock 1946 Plymouth? Thanks for advice or photos Ward Duffield Chilly Pine Plains, NY
