  1. which engine would be best

    Do the 230. Even stock you will go from 87 HP to 125. You will be glad you did. You will need to switch bell housings and maybe fly wheels or ring gears depending on ring gear tooth count.
  2. which engine would be best

    What are your compression test results??? Absent of hearing or testing a running when pulled engine, I would assume any engine will need a rebuild. If you are not worried about points at Plymouth shows,buy the newest one and plan on rebuilding it. But I would first try to understand if the engine in the car is or is not reparable.
  3. Tyre width

    Not real familiar with the rear fender situation of the 54, but on my 46 I am running 5 inch wide 15's with a 3 1/2 back space, with 225 75 mounted. They are tight. I had some rear fender rub on turns, till I put new shocks and spring bushings on , still get a little with full gas and stuff in the trunk. More back space put the side walls into contact with the springs. Some one here said they were running 15 inch police specials on their 53 but don't remember who or what size tire they were running but I believe it was suggested that 70 series were about the max that would fit. I think it was said those wheels were 7 inches wide.
  4. Kick panel resource

    I just had mine done by a trimmer. Fiber board with a plastic film backer windlace sewed on. He used the ones there for a template. 15 bucks a side.
  5. Saw this on FB. MOPAR option or custom?

    Its the Pointer Sisters car!
  6. A 833 Trans Transplant Thread

    Which three speed the ones bolted to the flatheads or the ones contemporary with the A883?
  7. Head bolts

    They can be used over, but these are listed as Chev or GMC and when I bought them through the machine shop that milled my head, they were 90¢ each even if their cost has doubled in the interim they are still cheap piece of mind. Mind the proper sequence and torquing procedure and you won't have to worry if every thing is OK.
  8. A 833 Trans Transplant Thread

    Have you run a calculator on those ratios, your tires and your rear end gears?
  9. A 833 Trans Transplant Thread

    What are the gear ratio in the box as it is set up?
  10. Head bolts

    Search pioneer. I have posted these bolts and their part number several times.
  11. No signage ......

    I always thought it meant "Test PosiTraction now! ". The ones I don't get are Icy Pavement Zone, seems a stupid choice of material especially since it usually relates to a curvy or hilly section of highway. Then there are the nearly nationwide protest signs demanding End Road Work. And Bridge Freezes before Road. What is the freezing temperature of a bridge? How does it know what temperature the road is. How soon till the road freezes? What if its a Icy Pavement Zone, does that change the remperature???
  12. Using Engine ID Number to Title Car

    Mystery to me why states would title a vehicle based on a number from a replaceable part or parts assembly. Especially when engineswaps were a basic maintainence procedure through the 80's or so. Hi I'm from the government, I'm here to help...
  13. Parts identification P18

    One is the door weather seal or weather strip. The other is known as windlace. Any upholstery or trimmers shop can make up windlace by sewing vinyl or upholstery fabric around various sizes of round foam. You should be able to find weatherstrip in varying profiles by the foot at body shop,collision damage repair shop supply stores.
  14. dodge 23" engine versus a cranbrook '53 engine

    Brake parts are car numbers.
  15. dodge 23" engine versus a cranbrook '53 engine

    Gaskets should be the same, military spec set may include some extra if the engine was "waterproof " or had positive crankcase breather system, but should fit your engine. Does your car have 10 inch brake drums with two wheel cylinders on the front wheels? If so the Mopar part numbers should be. Front upper right 1117802,front lower right 1117800, left front upper1117801,left. Front lower 1117803, Rear both sides1117808. Those should cross over to Raybestos, or Wagner numbers. Hope that helps.
