  1. Actually this time it is not about my car, but the one I previously owned. The current owner needs to replace the worm gears from what he can tell. I did some basic research and it certainly does not look that they are simply lying around on the streets :-). Or in other words - I did not find any sofar. Any idea who sells them, besides the occassional NOS stuff finding its way to ebay. Alternatively, but this would only be the second best solution as he wants to remain stock as much as possible: Would it make sense for him to exchange the steering gear completely with one coming from a more newish car. Which one would that be? Where can the required adapter be found? Thanks/ Thom

    Worm gear replacement 1948 Plymouth

    Thanks. Roller shafts there definitely are https://www.ebay.com/itm/1941-PLYMOUTH-STEERING-SECTOR-SHAFT-AND-ROLLER-NOS-MOPAR-516/401120087463?hash=item5d649ecda7:g:5S4AAOSwt7pXNMXC Would a 1941 differ from a 1948 one?
  3. I know. A very essential and important question that I am raising here πŸ™‚. I know. But interesting to me nevertheless. (is also an indication for the fact that the big tasks are getting fewer and fewer, finally). This is an underhood lamp similar to the one displayed in the accessory folder for our Plymouth. https://www.ebay.com/itm/1930s-1940s-1950s-Chrysler-Dodge-NOS-MoPar-Plymouth-DeSoto-UNDERHOOD-LAMP/362162480096 Where would that be screwed to? A picture would be nice πŸ™‚ Thanks/ Thom

    I did follow this all with interest. I will look around if I find this type of lamp over time. Obviously not something that is just lying around on the shelf somewhere. Thanks

    Pulling The Radio In my '53

    Basically this radio has three main connections to the dashboard. Connection 1: Front - both front dial knobs. Take the knobs of, underneath you should find a nut. Take it off and that part is loose then. Connection 2: Underneath the dash. For that you will most like have to take the heater switch assembly off. Between the radio and the heater assembly there are most likely 2 or 3 screws that need to be unscrewed. Connection 3: Firewall/ vent assembly. On the back of the radio there should be a final connector that connects the radio tightly to the firewall, vent assembly. I hope this helps. Thom

    Where on earth did you find that selection. Would be wonderful on my 1949 Plymouth to control the ODπŸ˜‚

    Dual carb linkage

    Thanks. But I am interested in their intake anyway. Then I might as well purchase the intake from George.

    Dual carb linkage

    They look great, but only useable with the AOK intake? Or am I right? thanks

  13. On ebay there are around 4 to 5 sellers offering reproduction tanks for my car. Some claiming "steel", some "galvanised" as highlights. Some are pure steel colour, others black. Has anybody has made any experience with these offerings? Any difference in what they have, a difference in price there certainly is not. thanks P.S. I am asking for a friend of mine.

    P18 1949 Plymouth fuel tank reproductions

    Hi. Yes they do https://vansauto.com/product/gas-tank-49-52/ Look a bit different though. Same price. No product information though:-) I have just noticed one of the ebay seller is obviously vans https://www.ebay.com/itm/Mopar-49-50-51-52-Chrysler-Dodge-Desoto-Plymouth-Galvanized-Gas-Tank-Fuel-Tank/362228646842 And so do these guys on ebay: https://www.ebay.com/itm/1949-PLYMOUTH-DODGE-DESOTO-CHRYSLER-BRAND-NEW-FUEL-TANK-POWDER-COATED-BLACK-P18/183025382970 https://www.ebay.com/itm/Gas-tank-for-49-52-Dodge-Plymouth-Chrysler-and-DeSoto-steel-fuel-tank/352289231679

    By the way - any recommendations for a good 6 Volt electical fuel pump? thanks
  17. Hi. Could someone show me a picture of the inside, OEM hinge structure of the bonnet. I am not sure if my setup is correct. It feels like I am missing some connections. Thanks

    Different carpet material

    Hi. Finalising the upholstery plans the carpet and the fabric/ possibly leather is still to be decided upon. I know, it is in the eye of the beholder. Stil .... Is there a real difference between the different suppliers of carpet material. So if it says cut pile, 80/20 etc. does it really matter where you buy the material from? I have for the first time read about the 600 series loop carpet for as little as 12 USD from albrigths. Is this material any good vs. the other two. Can Albrights and its low price really be trusted? thanks
  21. Murphys law - what I currently touch turns into another piece of additional work. Quite annoying. Having repaired - so I believe - the wiper motor itself I noticed: a) The grommets/ bushing in the wiper arm linkage are dried up and crumble away. Where can I get those one - they are different insofar as the inside is in the shape of a nut. b) One nut screw is missing - a nut that connects the wiper motor arm with the linkage - any idea where I can get this, the are different because of itheir height c) E clip - I simply can not find an e-clip over here that is both small and long enough tΓΆ hold down the linkage thanks for all your help. thom
  22. Still hoping to find one who has the exact measurements for this hexnut so I can go for the hunting exercise.

    Sorry. Had an internet issue. Therefore I posted this message twice. Can this one be deleted?

  25. Admittingly a goog throw - but one with a very negative side effect. My boy decided to pick-up the wiper motor, resulting in the only hex nut available becoming loose. Next on the agenda was a good throw into the garden. And now, nowhere to be found. Buggggggggggggggggggeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeerrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr πŸ™‚ Not his fault. But very, very annoying. I checked the parts book. No help. Does anybody have this particular hex nut (linkage between the wiper motor and the actual linkage arrm, rests inside the bushing etc.) dimensions so I can get replacements? thanks And yes - you are all allowed to start laughing πŸ™‚
