  1. California & The Internal Combustion Engine

    thanks Ed...I knew they did not bolt metal to metal and that gap seems a bit much...appreciate your reply
  2. headlight footswitch

    I figured the original push in clips would be more of a concern
  3. headlight footswitch

    there are a number of these available NIB on E-bay (USA) right now.... https://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_odkw=plymouth+dimmer+switch&_osacat=0&_from=R40&_trksid=p2045573.m570.l1313.TR0.TRC0.A0.H0.Xplymouth+dimmer+switch%2C+1951.TRS1&_nkw=plymouth+dimmer+switch%2C+1951&_sacat=0
  4. Radiator question

    Do not keep trying to top it off all the way to the top..there is to be expansion room in the top tank...second, do you have a digital infrared thermometer....this will allow you to ascertain the actual heat within the block throughout the cooing system...DO RUN a thermostat..it not only allows the block to warm up but when open the hole is of the proper size to allow the proper flow of water...not to big to prevent water from saturation but big enough to prevent oversaturation..is the timing a bit advanced by chance...makes them run very well but also allow them to run hotter temp wise..and lastly, did you take the time to purge the block before install to properly clean the sludge from the bottom of the block and inspect the distribution tube.....and ensure that the lower hose has a spring in it to prevent suction collapse if you have deleted the metal u-tube...

    on compression you adding a twisting into the mix with the given angle you created
  6. 41-51 front upper shock stud source?

    If you are so dead set on keeping the upper stock shock mount position instead of remote to the frame...you can find some from someone who did the remote mount improvement given they used the frame mounts from a Dodge/Ford truck of the era or the aftermarket provide new forgings.. I would suggest to look to moving the shocks for improved ride and handling.....takes a lot of float out of the boat
  7. California & The Internal Combustion Engine

  8. 6v positive ground question

    non permanent magnet...you would have to change the polarity of the brushes to affect rotation

    I will throw out that by your profile you are in Olympia, Washington and I have no idea the going shop rate for any large or small enterprise. Hopefully someone here is close to you and can chime in with an approximate cost. The signal light kits are not that expensive nor hard to install yourself. You will need to rewire your sockets for dual element bulbs and index the aftermarket pigtail properly for the Mopar sockets. The kits comes with easy to follow instruction and there are plenty of site on the internet to walk you though should you hit a snag...or come back here with a question. I would think the cost to install at a shop would be a bit of coin....but then I am just spit balling....You can find the kits on E-bay or through a variety of hot rod suppliers. I would suggest you give it a whirl before farming it out..but I also don't know your skills/time/limitations such as tools and place to work.

    are you asking for cost if YOU do the work buying the parts etc or the cost of a shop/garage to do the deed?
  11. Cowl vent linkage

    per his avatar, project cars, I am thinking a 51 Meadowbrook
  12. How to keep the mice away?

    cats show no affection...they just use these tricks to gain affection from you....if something were to happen to you the cat would be sucking up to someone else immediately... you got to sit back and laugh now and then.....
  13. Help identifying engine

    mains and rods are .030 undersize...cylinder is bored .040 oversize...the G8262 is probably a number to identify it back to the builder for warranty
  14. 1950 Spitfire problems

    don't forget to re-torque the head bolts after a heat cycle...a must for these flatheads..
  15. 1950 Water pump removal/installation

    yes, time to slip back into the age of simplicity.....
