  1. OT - What's wrong with THIS picture ???

    Trucker Tim, sent you a PM.
  2. Overdrive indicator lights

    Do you hear from Rodney B or Joe F these days?
  3. Tech manual

    If you can find an original or reproduction parts manual they have exploded drawings of assemblies that are pretty good on letting you see how things work and relate to associated components. And they provide the original part numbers also. You can find them at swap meets for originals and sometimes on line. There is a fellow near here that specializes in manuals, literature brochures and factory paperwork. Search Walter Miller Auto-Lit.

    Hey Jim!! Good to see you are still aboard, Plymouth or no. Best regards to you. Greg G?
  5. Starter grind

    The good news about the ring gear is it can be removed and flipped over so the unworn part of the cogs are facind the starter. The bad news is you have to remove the trans, and clutch to access the flywheel.
  6. Rear end swap

    Do the wires go to the center of the axle assy. Join together, and proceed forward as one bundle? If so those are the sensor wires. Since you won't have any thing expecting a signal they don't have a job.

  8. Exhaust Vibration

    Could you point out the areas that are in disagreement. Because it looks pretty much the same ideas presented a bit differently.
  9. Exhaust Vibration

    The true purpose of the tube is not general engine cooling. It is designed to direct coolant upwards to assure proper flow to the valve seat area. The slots in the top of the tube are shaped to provide that flow and the taper helps the rear slots provide the same volume as the fronts get. Use your IR sensor to check the area of the block above the valve chamber covers and see what that tells you. If your tube isn't blocked with rust or scale and the top slots are intact, it likely doesn't need messing with. It is critically important for the exhausts valves as they only get cooled when closed and seated, the intake valves get cooled when opened by the incoming fuel air charge. Exhaust valves work under much harsher conditions which is why Chrysler decided to provide hardened seats, and lesser brands did not. Conspicuous through its absence is any semblance of a similar device in the Ford engine. They have a hole, but no tube.

    Why are you changing the tube?? Do you have an indication it is bad?
  11. May Add Dodge Royal to my Collection

    Try some Nev R Dull on it. Cotton wadding with a mild solvent soaked in. Think is now an Eagle brand. In tyher big box store with all the polished waxes and cleaners.should brighten up unless its down to their Nicole layer https://www.walmart.com/ip/Eagle-One-Nevr-Dull-5-oz/15125758

    Amazing old iron. Elbow out the window, hand signals working. Don't get any better!
  13. Wix 51080 in 218 Flathead 6

    Is there not a spring/spacer that goes under the element? Is yours installed in the picture? The 51080 is a direct crossover to the Napa 1080, 1080 gold, which fits at least 75% of these various can and element style filters.
  14. Exhaust Vibration

    I know that fluid drive cars have specified idle speed range , but have you tried changing your idle rpm to see it it changes anything? I guess the bigger question is what is causing the vibration. Have you checked the condition of your motor mounts? A perished mount could cause a angle stress on the exhaust plumbing. Put a piece of 2x4 or similar and jack each side of the bell housing up a quarter inch and see if that changes the equation. Then do the front and lift a bit on the oil pan using the wood to spread the load. Do you have an engine misfire at idle?
  15. Forced Induction Turbo/Super Charger Thread

    What is the fascination with high rpm? After a certain point you are fighting piston speed and more frictional losses than can be overcome in long stroke design. Any thing ever 3800 for a street vehicle is more about testosterone than technology.
