    304ss exhaust to manifold corrosion / help needed

    stainless pipes and cast iron manifolds have been the go-to since early 90's for most cars on the highway today.....there is no need to be concerned about anything except wrecking the vehicle in an unfortunate accident. One thing you did not address...welding the flange to the pipe as these are not ball socket connection to the manifold....get that flange welded...

    512 cid C series on Dakota chassis- build thread

    that will be quite close to the header...will you be able to install a heat shield? A little space between header and coupling will do wonders..the heat will cook any lube quickly and cause tight steering to even a possible binding...

    Should I Attempt Carb Rebuild?

    carbs really do not get much simplier than these..'cept maybe a SU

    Has anyone ever had to deal with a aggressive neighbor?

    feel for you guy.....it amazes me that folks like this exist....its evident they do not know how to act in a polite society....good luck with the pending encounter...

    need transmission linkage adjustment help

    that would be referring to knowledgeable parts counter attendants...….(as Sheldon would say, bazinga punk, there isn't any)

    Where did they come from?

    do they actually have electric in North Dakota...….? if I recall Tesla donated chargers for this as a promotion...(see below)..….we may well see more and more of this....the cars still have a limited daily cruise range....
  7. I remember the last of the V8 rear wheel drive vehicles Mopar put on the road....super smooth across the spectrum....2.32 gears....

    The D.C. P15 Update

    bet you weren't this excited with the new bride.....well...maybe....
  9. the Powerflite e-brake when introduced is nice in that the shoes are internal to a drum and backing plate on the end of the transmission and fully adjustable in the same fashion of any brake shoes set up. I still have an early cast iron torqueflite here at the house in small V8 connected to a 360 that was at one time in a 50 Dodge with e-brade drum and a 62 push button torqueflite in /6 clothing....parts are available but last I checked, a bit higher in cost, but, what isn't these days
  10. of the flathead era and the very trannies that were attached to them back then, they are quite heavy...no one says they not good...just not worth the effort to install was MY OPINION given the later units with OD built in..if you going to spend the time energy and money..this is the pay off... I can speak of this with 54 and the 230 with Powerflite, put the pedal down and yes will bark a tire now and then but the sweet part is that it will run to about 52-53 MPH then shift into high...it's no slouch...but would I mess with the Powerflite if not stock installed....I would think that would be a resounding NO
  11. I did not ever state that it would not fit, only that it would be a retrofit if you did such.....and there is the crankshaft bolt issue...

    Where did they come from?

    Chrysler Historical Society, part of FCA has a division for tracing the history of the vehicle and providing a build card I think they also can tell you the dealer it was shipped to even if special order it had a destination listed.
  13. it will be a retrofit...as the very car in question is 1950 and the automatic was not offered for that year, but available in mid production 54 earliest in Plymouth brand.

    1940 Chrysler Windsor Coupe brake conversion

    his looked like it was dropped already.....from space....lol
  15. I would not mess with the antiquated tranny myself...I have a 54 w/230 with an automatic and while it is nice (powerflite) I would never go out of my way to retro fit one.
