    new battery

    Did you check your local tractor supply or farm and fleet?? I have been buying my batteries from our local exide warehouse. Been getting five to seven years from what they sell as seconds. They are seconds because they have sat some where for six months and they get returned to the warehouse. Got one last year, paper work for the dead one said it was six years old. The newer one was a second an cost me 45.00. Advance wanted 80.00. Tsc was 69. This was for group one so the group two might be higher. The Cca rating was 7075 if I recall.
  2. You can also modify your parking lights by removing the single pigtail insert and replacing it with new dual lead pig tails. These are commonly available in auto parts Stores. Then change the bulbs to double filimant and wire the bright one to your signal leads and the dim ones back to the factory harness. If you can't find the pictails you can buy the sockets and pull the pigtails an swap thenm into your sockets. https://www.ebay.com/i/120839141384?chn=ps&ul_ref=https%3A%2F%2Frover.ebay.com%2Frover%2F1%2F711-117182-37290-0%2F2%3Fmpre%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Fwww.ebay.com%252Fi%252F120839141384%253Fchn%253Dps%26itemid%3D120839141384%26targetid%3D595232346629%26device%3Dt%26adtype%3Dpla%26googleloc%3D9005090%26poi%3D%26campaignid%3D1689945004%26adgroupid%3D69559042047%26rlsatarget%3Dpla-595232346629%26abcId%3D1140466%26merchantid%3D101499671%26gclid%3DEAIaIQobChMItdP8gYOR4QIVisDICh3o-gYmEAkYCiABEgLF9fD_BwE%26srcrot%3D711-117182-37290-0%26rvr_id%3D1903092960071%26rvr_ts%3D9bb314531690ad4ce70055c9fffd1f06 If your sockets are rusted beyond use or you can't address them that way, check your local motorcycle shops for new or used signal amps. These can be mounted to your spash pan bumper brackets or behind the grill to be effective and non intrusive to the cars look.

    The D.C. P15 Update

    Airtex just presses the pins n relying on an interference fit to retain them. Many folks have experienced the walking out either stopping fuelflow or in some cases aowing thecam lever to drop into the crankcase. Inspection t your pin if it hasn't been properly staaked in it could back out. Some folks like Donreplaced the pin with a longer on with c clips and groves. I made a sheet metal retainer tht slides over both ends of the pinto hold it in place Some have done the staking with a pin punch. The interference fit doesn't work as well as as airtex claimed it does

    Have you searched airtex fuel pump issues on this message board? Interesting reading on cam lever fulcrum pins. See if you can pull them up.

    Cool P15 Photo

    In the US, many states during and after the war issued only one plate due to metal conservation restrictions. Front liscence holders might have been dealer installed pieces again to conserve metal. Why put one on every car at the factory I'd you didn't know where the car was going?

    Question for od gurus.

    My r 10 instaled last year does not engage under 45 mph. The literature on the unit suggests the cut in should occur at 35 or so. It's fine on the interstate, but it is in and out a lot on the surface roads. Is there an adjustment that can be made to the governor to get it to engage and stay in at lower speed?

    Think you nailed it. Detective's ride maybe or impounded.

    Look carefully at the rerminals at the sending unit. One of them is bigger than the other. You might even be able to pick up the numbers there also Unless they have been messed with the wires the wire trrminals should be sized according to what terminal it goes to on the sending unit.. If it's similar to the post war setup.

    Tire Purchase

    Running 225 75 15 radials on 5.5 wide aftermarket wheels. Pretty close to 600 16 diameter. Have 205 on the front but they are too short for the rear, and throw off the speedo off by nearly 10 mph. My rears used to rub with weight in the trunk going around turns. New shocks and spring to bracket bushings cured 99% of that depending on how much stuff in the trunk. Also my springs have sagged so the rear is lower than stock. The problem with wider tires is being able to jack the car up high enough to get them to clear the wheel openings when you need to change them. Sometimes a real Ain in the butt if dealing with a flat at the side of the road.

    Is your sending unit two terminal or single?

    I think the later engine is actually lighter than stock. V8 about 670. Flathead six 700.

    1936 Desoto Airflow engine

    For flat head sixes, Chrysler made 25 inch long for Chrysler and deSoto, and 23 1/2 long for Dodge and Plymouth. Measure the head length and narrow down your choices. The shorter ones can be fitted but if you want a bolt in you need to grab the correct length.

    has anyone heard from..

    Oh crap! Hate hearing about members having Heath problems. Best wishes for you and yours. This stuff is hard on families too. I had a stent blow out back in October. Doc said it was probably due to age of the implant. Great got three more that are only three years younger.
