  1. I previously had many engagements with Lindsay McConnell. Great person. Great parts. I have been trying to get hold of him for a while using the contact information that I have. With no success. Has anybody been in touch with him lately? Is he OK? Has his contact information changed? thanks
  2. Does anyone know the exact trico model name for the wiper motor in need for my 1949 Plymouth. For example I have found one named trico SK54 and SK51. Do not know if this would fit a P18 or is aimed for a P15 model. thanks for your enlightenment. Thom

    Air filter for our Carter bb

    A friend of mine will go the dual carb route with the offenhauser intake and two Carter stock carbs. I know that offenhauser is not that much liked. Still what will he have to bear in mind? What air filter setup, offering would work best? Thanks
  5. Guess what - after all changes necessary - I now have to realise that my carb needs refurbishment or ideally replacement. The throttle base with the flaps (so I would describe it) is loose. Hence the carb breathes wrong air at the wrong time. As everything else - yes this car purchase was a mistake 😞 - on the carb front looks very used and run down I would rather opt towards a replacement. Now the following questions? Any resources known to you where I can purchase this item in Europe, preferably Germany? Simply for time and cost reasons. I actually haven't found one. Any idea if I could even use a more modern replacement that I can easily source here in Europe? Important, I do not want to change any set-ups right now. My 49 obviously has the electric joke mechanism. Still 6 Volt positive ground. Any recommendations to where to find a well-priced one in the US? thanks/ thom

    P18 Plymouth 1949 carb alternative in Europe

    Sorry. No, I have not found it in Europe. There simply is nothing to be found. I actually did find 2 or 3 players that could work on the carb, but they happen to have a 3 months lead time 😞 The carb I found in the US for a reasonable price point, it looks good from what I can tell and being a 1953 it might even make sense given that I shall install an overdrive transmission.

    Could I ask you another question? What would you say about a modernised set-up like weber 32/36? thanks

    Please do assume that I simply know nothing and then you are getting close 😞 Would I be able to use the U1 for my purpose? Bearing in mind that I shall be using an overdrive in the end it could possibly make sense? What do you think? If I was to use it would I need to change anything? thanks

    P18 Plymouth 1949 carb alternative in Europe

    And I have spotted a d6u1 carb for a 1953 Plymouth. Apparently suited for an overdrive car. Would that actually make sense? Any downs? Any pros? thanks

    Can I actually use a d6u1 for a 1949 Plymouth? What is the downside? Anything better than then d6h1? thanks

    What do you all think about the weber 32/36 DGV alternative? Thom
  13. I can not get hold of my parts book at the moment but my sloppy garage chap lost a part. Not essential, but needed. What is this "cross bar?" called that "connects" the oil bath filter to the engine block? Sorry for abusing your competences and time :-( thanks

    Thanks. Can you let me what contact address you were using back then? Thanks
  16. It must look like to you all as I am building a new car from scratch? Or did I make a very bad purchase in the first place?. I leave that decision to you, but I give you hint. The latter question sounds more true to me 🙂 Any idea what vacuum wiper motors from which car would interchange with the actual need for my P18? Reason for asking? I haven't spotted a decent one for a P18 model, but there are quite a few available for thte P15 model. thanks

    Vacuum wiper interchange with a P18

    Thanks. Wiper motor for the P15 model are actually easy to find. Not the case for the 1949 Plymouth. Is probably a market relevance matter.

    Air filter (oil bath air filter 🙂 But you are obviously right 🙂

    Yes it is the bracket that links the oil bath filter to the engine block simply for fastening reasons.

    Engine Number in the title?

    Hi - rather late - but well. I just noticed that my original title corresponds with the engine number of the car and not the VIN number in the door area. Is this unusual for a car of this age - a 1949 Plymouth - is this typical for Florida? thanks for your support. I am currently facing legal matters over here for that reason

    Engine Number in the title?

    Thanks for all your swift support. You might have noticed I am situated in Germany. And there - please now assume for the purpose of being humurous a very over the top Hollywood German accent - "Rules apply". And the rule states VIN Number must be the same as the title number. I shall now use your insights to persuade the inspector of the legality of my situation. thanks again. thom
