    Coles notes on 12 volt conversion please...

    On my 38 Coupe, I use a 12 volt starter and generator from a 56 Dodge. The heater is 6 volt, with a 12 to 6 ceramic type of reducer. I ran my fuel gauge with the heater reducer also.

    Another Aussie onboard

    That is a very nice 36.... My Uncle had a 36 for over 40 years. The USA 36 has a different windshield, sharp corner at the bottom. After using 3 stock transmissions in my 38, I went with a Ford Ranger truck 5 speed, ( TKO ) , rearend, and a Ford driveshaft, to make the 38 more driveable, glad I did. The Ford rearend park brake attached to the Plymouth cables very easy.....

    What is my clutch size?

    On my TK5 Ranger 5 speed install, with a 37 Chrysler engine, I had a 10" set up. My 38 Plymouth had a 9" set up. My 56 Dodge engine has the 10" set up. As best as I can remember, maybe best to measure your parts before buying new parts.....

    Anti-theft devices

    I had problems with someone trying to take my 70 Mustang, that I only drove on the weekends. The ignition switch was found on the floor often. The car could not be started, since I kept the car's battery behind the seat of my work truck. I kept the radio knobs off, so no one would take the radio also. This worked several years, until I sold the car......

    Starter upgrade?

    My 38 Coupe, with an engine from a 36, had the starter pedal on the floor. I bought a 56 engine that had a 54 starter with no solenoid that I added a wall mount solenoid so as to start with a start button. Worked great, but I later found a 12 volt 56 started to replace the 54....

    230 dodge engine

    I used a 56 starter on my 36 engine, and I could use the my 36, 37, 38 starter on my 56 engine... There was a change in the 57 as to the length to engage the starter. With your 53 bell, you may have to use a 56 starter...
