  1. Splitting exhaust manifold

    The above^^^ technique is what I would suggest as most in line with the junk yard parts, backyard build theme.
  2. I believe Chrysler and DeSoto engines for the Airflow models may have had aluminum heads. Read something somewhere a good while ago. Weight saving marketing deal???
  3. weird connector(?) what is it for...?

    Being that close to the flasher connector and holder, seems to support it is aftermarket signal light related.
  4. Newspaper Archives

    From spring of 47 before city dales tax enacted. Prices for used cars still high from war years.
  5. Brake light question

    Hydraulic switches get corrupted by old brake fluid, corrosion. Brake light circuits can develop electrical resistance in connections, grounds can get corrupted with age. I just changed my switch last year it made a big difference, I have also powered the switch through a new independent wire with an inline fuse, and run a dedicated wire from the light fixture to a good tight ground. Also make a grounding line from your body to the frame or engine.
  6. Body / Engine Number 42 Dodge

    Plymouth body. Go to the allpar website and search exports. There is a lot of information there on Detroit built exports, Canadian made exports, as nd knock downs which were chassis, drivetrains and body's which were assembled in the countries they were exported to. Pretty good section on Central and South America.
  7. Body / Engine Number 42 Dodge

    The serial number tag was usually aplied to one of the "A" pillars. Some pictures of the side of the car would show if the car is Plymouth based or Dodge. Many export Dodges were plymouths with Dodge trim. Wheelbase for Plymouth based car would be 117 inches. Do the front fenders extend their lines into the front door? What is the length of your engines cylinder head?. Does the car have fuid drive? What is the word preceding the number 412586851?
  8. Battery not charging

    There is a test in the service manual for the generator, but it is not clear if you have a gen or an alt.
  9. The Venerable Slant 6 vs Our Beloved Flathead 6s

    The 225 /6 in my fathers 1960 Dart was rated at 145 HP, the 170 @ 101
  10. Have you done a manifold vacuum gauge reading? With a stock cam and split intake you should pull apx.17 inches at 500 rpm.
  11. I also recall that those carbs didn't like fuel pressure of more than a couple psi. I believe the Mopar pump operates above that level.
  12. What did you change? Was the engine running well before the change? If so, you changed the fuel system, then blame the ignition for the problem. It doesn't seem a mystery to me of where the trouble may lie. As noted above with out other proper changes to support extra fuel mix, the extra fuel is just that extra as in unneeded unusable.
  13. Are all Spitfire heads 25"?

    All spitfire 6 cylinder heads are 25 inch,but not all 25 inch heads are Spitfire. Spitfire was a Chrysler automotive marketing moniker. Lots of 25 inch heads out there that don't dsay spitfire. It has been documented a couple of time that thusly labeled heads are not more performance oriented than non spitting versions.
  14. Old mopar's. What do I need to know?

    Like most repops they need fiddling with before they fit. Most reports here of people using them suggest they are not exact fit, and cuz every car rusts differently some require more fiddling than others. Probably still a good start for the investment.
  15. vacation
