    It's the speed sensor, the "hose" is the wire shield.

    1940 Windsor Coupe Triple Carb Manifolds-Which carbs to use?

    Your manifolds look top notch! Much better than the others out there...

    What Disc brake conversion to use on a 53 coronet

    What size tires are you planning to run?

    Floors

    Just make sure your body is securely bolted down to the frame. My floors were non-existent so I made a new structure and used 14ga for the flat parts, 18ga for the trans/driveshaft tunnel and lower rockers. Harder to work with but very solid and quiet.

    Old transmission

    I would just replace it. Look for GL1-GL4 oil only, stay away from GL5.

    Residual Valve redundancy? Scarebird

    The valve built into the original master cylinder is more like a 10lb residual valve. My disc brakes were dragging with it in there. I removed it and added no external valves and it’s been working fine for some time now. Even after sitting for weeks I never have a low pedal. Adam

    When you have more questions than answers.

    Multiple carbs and dual exhaust do make a difference. I agree 3 may be too much and you could also run into firewall clearance issues. I would look at dual Carter-Webers from Langdon, mine run very well on an otherwise stock flathead. Performance and driveability were both improved. Adam

    My starter broke!!!

    Looks like there is rust in part of the crack indicating it had been cracked for a while before it broke off. Could it have been dropped at some point? I’ve run several 6v starters on 12v for years without issue. Adam

    Home Made Intake, Exhaust & Freshen-Up

    Hello Everyone, 1500 mile update and I have to say all is well. I have aligned it so I don't eat up my new tires and retorqued the intake/exhaust, it has been a hoot to drive. I also cleaned up some over spray from the glass and polished the chrome as much as I could. I have taken it to 2 local shows and it seems the Dodge crest on the hood and the intake gets the most attention. My oldest comes home from college this weekend and I will loose my pick-up for a week so the Dodge is on deck... Supposed to rain a few of those days but my wipers are up to the task it's just a car, right? Picture from local car show #1. It sure felt good to park next to the Ferraris and Lambos only to have to stand there all day and talk to people about the old Dodge. One guy with a 6 digit Italian car asked me why am I getting all the attention? I said "Not sure, it's just a POS old Dodge." He left in a huff Show #2 And with my youngest, she always asks to take "Lumpy"

    An Immodest Proposal (with apologies to Jonathan Swift)

    Thanks, used to look like this, took a lot of wet sanding to get the primer off the green paint.

    You don't have to have a shiny paint job for a driver. "Crappy paint" as you so eloquently put it suits me just fine.

    An Immodest Proposal (with apologies to Jonathan Swift)

    This makes sense except some of the worst work I have ever seen comes out of these so called "pro shops." Unless you or your friend (who you trust) knows what to look for, it's a gamble with any car, modified or not. Sometimes a bigger gamble coming out of a '"pro shop."

    Fan blades. Mounting

    I think they were built well. I don't think Ma Mopar thought these cars would be running 70 years later? Fatigue starts the first day after construction, it's only a matter of time after that point.

    Fan blades. Mounting

    Exactly right Tim, after that incident there's only 2 fans I'll ever use. 1. New 2. Electric (also new) All others get tossed in the scrap bin. Funny thing is I drove the rest of the day without a fan and only hit 200 once, lol

    No, a close up showed a dirty or rusty crack followed by fresh crack. would have never been able to see it without removal... Who the hell would knowingly continue to run a cracked fan?
