    Your 37 project looks in better shape than what I started with. I have a 98 Jeep, inline 6, 2 wheel drive, auto trans,I would like to install in this project. My 38 Coupe has a 36 or 37 engine, 5 speed Ranger trans, easy to drive. Bob..

    Dual circuit master cylinder

    On my 48 Dodge, I used a Ford MC running a rod through the original MC, worked good.
  5. I have a bench seat in my coupe. The shifter on the TK5 5 speed is at the rear of the trans, so I did a little bending on the shifter, and added a piece of steel tubing, works great....

    1954 Starter Motor

    In my 38 Coupe with a 36 or 37 engine, I am running a 12 volt MDF 6007 starter from a 1956 engine. Before that I was running a 6 volt that was listed as from a 1954 model car. I believe the 57 and up starters are a little different that the 56 year.

  9. I installed a Ford Ranger 5 speed trans in my 38 a few years ago. No adapter needed on the 38 bell housing. Has done very good with a 3.73 rearend, but I think would do better with a 3.55 rear.

    scarebird brake conversion

    These photos were posted on a different thread, for a 36 Plymouth, bolt on, no adapter. The caliper looks to be Volvo. I have not found anyway it could be bolted on without an adapter...

    Antifreeze and your car

    I ran rain water through, and drained several times during the summer. Before cold weather, I flushed one more time, and added all antifreeze, no water. The all antifreeze has been in about 4 years now. I will drain it this year, and see the condition of rust or not....

    found source for bolt in dual master cylinder

    I cut some bad sections of flooring where the foot area is, and did not have to go under the seat area. The only bracket I had to install, was the blue piece. I made the push rod longer also..... The new Mustang II MC worked great....
