    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...

    speedometer calibration

    I went with a borrowed GPS unit to test my 38 Coupe. My speedo was faster than the GPS at slow MPH , and the speedo was slower at higher MPH... I believe since I lubed the speedo cable, numbers may be more accurate...

    Drivability in the mountains

    It is hilly here in southwest Virginia. My 38 Coupe does very well in the curvy hilly areas. The 5 speed makes a lot of difference compared to the three speeds I hade used before. The 3.73 is better than the 3.9 I had before. I believe a 3.5 would be a better option for my Coupe....
