  1. Raffle is over. Thank you stylesadamson! You've got a PM.
  2. Bidding ends Friday the 15th.
  3. Thanks Mark! I finding some people buy these trucks and they're missing speedo's and gauges.
  4. I'm donating a speedometer service to help raise money for Tim's BBQ. '39-'56 trucks only. Bidding starts at $100. Let's help Tim pay for this BBQ!
  5. The stock gauges will work with a 12 volt system. The only thing you need to do is drop the voltage to the fuel gauge. Use something like this: https://www.ebay.com/itm/New-Heavy-Duty-Electric-12-Volt-To-6-Volt-Reducer-Resistor-For-Fans-Motors/162723814029 The mechanical oil and temperature gauge are more durable and accurate than electric gauges.
  6. Shipping shouldn't be too expensive. I've got a friend that lives near Chitchester. She makes the trip across the pond every few months. Make she could take something back with her? What parts are you lookin' for?
  7. Welcome! Post some pictures of the truck! A must have for a B series owner: https://www.amazon.com/Dodge-Trucks-Restorers-Collectors-Reference/dp/1583880879 The welting on the bulk head doesn't have any asbestos in it.

  10. I had good results with Red Kote.
  11. You're right. It looks like mid year '54 they changed from the 218 to the 230. https://www.allpar.com/model/ram/ram-trucks-C.html
  12. 29 spline 8.25 or 44 would be good. Glad to hear you're staying with the 218 ( or 230?). Lot's of 'goodies' for the flathead still available. We used to 'wheel with a guy that installed the Super 35 kit in his XJ. Held up to the Rubicon and Johnson Valley several times running 33's.
  13. Welcome, WJ rear axle swap might be an option? I think the bolt pattern is the same, just need to weld on spring perches. Fluid drive works like an old mini bike with a centrifugal clutch. No need to step on the clutch when coming to a stop. More pics please!
  14. I don't think John is out of business, I believe he let his webpage expire. https://www.facebook.com/pg/Pilothouse-Interiors-LLC-376213562472229/about/
  15. The outer (chrome part) unscrews. The center (head/panel) 'floats', stays centered, doesn't rotate with the outer part. ( Hope that was clear. )
  16. Cool! Looks like a mid '50's gauge cluster and speedometer.
  17. Vin decoder: http://www.t137.com/registry/help/decode.php
  18. DCM lists the rear window as '48-'54. The quarter windows (I believe) are also the same.
  19. I've done it. Not hard. Chrysler also designed the nut with 'ramps' on it so that if the engine backfired, it would spit the crank out. Not an arm breaker like other manufacturers.
  20. Mark? Good mornin'! Post up a pic of that truck. Keven
