  1. I said they were pictures of 64 caps. I used the picture to illustrate the what the back side of my 55 caps look like since I had no pictures of them. I edited my post to include a picture of my 55, bought from the 2nd owner with the wheels and caps that came to me on the car. My caps came to me on a 1955 Plymouth, are domed, have multi-pressed rings but are not designed for clips (hence the similarity to the caps in my original picture). If I am mistaken, please forgive me for being......human and attempting to post an answer why the gentleman's caps wouldn't fit his wheels. I won't make the same mistake again. Back to lurking for me.
  2. The caps in your picture are designed for earlier wheels that had clips. They are very similar externally to my 55 caps, but mine do not have the inner ring and are designed to fit over the "nubs" of later wheels. This picture is from 64 caps, but they attach and look similar to my 55 caps.
  3. Sometimes, if your Plymouth hits empty somewhere near a gas station, an empty gas can in the trunk can be very useful as you make your walk of shame to the station. I have found that at times it may even save you from making an embarrassing call to your spouse.
  4. Egge Machine would be an option.
  5. Interesting. I bought rockers for my 55 Savoy from them and the metal was so thin I made a lovely indentation when I poked it with my finger. I called to complain that the web site said I was getting 18 gouge steel. I was told the site was wrong and would be corrected. Never was. I am glad someone had a good experience with them.
  6. Rust or other blockage in you gas tank?
  7. With all due apologies, John Wayne probably had a stunt double to do all his carb work.
  8. I considered doing my D24 as a "Skyview taxi." Interesting story at http://www.coachbuilt.com/bui/w/waters/waters.htm
  9. 87--Doing taxes you get used to reading numbers upside down.
  10. Gene, I have a friend in Jefferson City that would be interested. He will be in Columbia tomorrow for the swap meet. I will email contact information to you. Gary
  11. Tough times for central MO machine shops. Precision Machine shut down due to fire in Jefferson City a couple of months ago. Back in business at a temporary location--and I heard they had some work being done at Elson's. Elson made the local news some months back: www.youtube.com/watch?v=IQmYK1Xz2nU
  12. I installed the headers on my 55 without changing the studs. You are right--the header flanges are not as thick as the manifold's flanges. The studs that come with the headers are threaded closer to the block in order to avoid running out of thread before the nuts are tight. but I reused the original studs with the brass washers from the manifold and had no problem.
  13. I should be fair and mention I ordered a floor pan as well, and it was 18 gauge as advertised. I don't know whether it fit--I never tried it.
  14. C2C supplies Rockauto body parts. The rockers I ordered for my 55 Plymouth were drop shipped from C2C; were ill fitting and of 22 gauge steel. When I called C2C and pointed out their web site states the rockers are 18 gauge, I was told that was an error and that they would correct it. Still haven't, two years later. Gary
