    Anyone got transmission crossmember photos?

    This has been pointed out to you before....there are a number of R&P units that fit the weight class you seek.......I know my Dodge truck fits your posted weight limits..not to say there would not be a lot of modification....but when you deviate from stock that is the nature of the beast. Even the Sprinter vans have R&P...

    minivan wheels on a P15 to move it?

    a properly loaded trailer can be pretty stable even with a blowout....4 wheel trailers ever more so...while length of trailer compared to towing vehicle can increase instability especially passing semi's and cross winds...if this is a common scenario for you, do consider the use of an equalizer...swaying from improperly loaded trailer is the leading cause of incidents..not enough tongue weight.....concentrated weight behind the axle of the trailer...

    Identifying a T786 motor

    I believe the 377 and the 413 were basically the same block whereas the factory did a bore and stroke the get the larger cubes..similar to the 218/230 251/265 and about a dozen other mopar engines that right up to the current models are bore and stroke combos..you may have to do the storke deal...377 was 5 inch I think and the 413 was 5 5/16 this is not a very commonly discussed engine...data hard to find...even allpar does not go into many details on the larger powerplants

    Time to clean the workbench.

    my buddy often said that cleaning a shop is best done by opening a door on each end and driving through with a front end loader....miss that guy, cancer took him a few years back.

    butt connectors / whats the deal, pickle :)

    do not cut strands of wire...when you do, you just took that wire to a smaller gauge and no longer rated for the amperage the original wire calls for...you may need first to assure you have the correct gauge wire to begin with...remember, connectors for automobiles are usually sold in red, blue and yellow insulators...each reflect the max wire it will allow to be fixed in place.....red is smallest, then blue then the yellow....I believe we discussed this on the phone when discussing the proper crimping tool you will need.

    Stupid carburetor!

    They the makers and you are not......supply and demand. They supply the parts and demand you pay dearly for them.

    I see you own a flat filing cabinet also...

    Fuel lines

    while you can install about any size line you want, the very fitting on your tank is going to dictate the size of your line...use your backing nut for tank outlet as this should accurately verify your original line size.

    Interesting photos I have run across.

    Bedford is nice, I posted earlier but am sure being an embedded link it was removed due to bandwidth issues...(sorry)....if interested check out you tube video, Your Wildest Dreams by Moody Blues..the band has one of these for their transportation

    Interesting photos I have run across.

    to comment on art is always considered a critique.....BUT....I find it very interesting that a small child knows that a vehicle needs to be one solid color.....😁 enjoy your vacation

    Automatic Choke

    it was used on many models for many years and the industry did not revert back to the manual choke......what would you think the answer may be...?

    Automatic Choke

    it was a step forward in non-human intervention in controlling the fuel mixture when starting a cold engine...no pulling/pushing choke to various stages during warm up or excess consumption of fuel for those that forgot to push that knob to put the choke vertical from those last few degrees

    Radiator swap question re P15

    the number of rows, the spacing etc and the fins that the tubes run though make up the SKIN of the cooling surface..t5heory, the more rows and amount of skin the better the heat transfer....but remember, optimum transfer only takes place when the water is exchanged in the radiator at the proper flow rate...
