    1948 Pilothouse FB $1500

    Look at everything for sale on that link,and there is a pretty nice original 40 Plymouth 4dr that seems complete other than a grille bar for 2 grand in Aulender,NC.

    1946 Dodge transmission rear main seal

    Check your motors manual for a detailed step by step procedure that includes photos. You DO have a Motors Auto Repair Manual that covers the year 1948,right?

    Interesting photos I have run across.

    Well,to be fair there was a LOT less traffic running around those days,even in the cities,and a LOT fewer drivers with attitudes looking for someone to run over. Back then if you ran over a child,you WOULD be going to jail unless there was absolute proof there was nothing you could have done to prevent it. These days people are running over other people on purpose and not going to prison because they were having a bad day and they got a shrink to testify it wasn't their fault due to emotional stress.

    Thanks. My first experience with outboards was a 3.5 HP Evinrude from the late 50's or early 60's,and even it was water-cooled. My best GUESS on the brakes is that with such a small pulley on such a small motor and what looks like it might be a large pulley on the axle,it didn't go that fast,anyhow. Leave the belt really loose,and it wouldn't be hard to stop. Still,with a little kid in it driving around on sidewalks on city streets,it looks like the builder would have put a handbrake of some sort on it,doesn't it? Then again,maybe it was an expensive step-son? <G>

    i wonder how they kept it cool. Not to mention how they stopped it.

    Probably,but it won't affect me. I will keep adjusting regulators until my lights stay bright without flickering at idle,and just keep on keeping on.

    Wow! All that,and for only $1,000!

    Not for me. I hate the ugly bastids and see no need for them in a old car that is original.

    No big deal. Just pull out the choke a little if that is the case. If that IS the case,I would recommend adjusting the points in the voltage regulator to charge at idle. That way you aren't losing battery charges while sitting at stop lights,etc,etc,etc. This is especially true at night. The telltale is if your headlights dim at idle.

    The quick and easy test for cars with generators is to remove a battery cable while it's running. If the engine stops,the generator is not charging. If it keeps running,the generator is charging.

    I have seen no proof that either were anything other than programmed robots.

    If the rest of it is as straight and rust free as what we can see,that sure looks like a winner to me! It even runs and drives,so you can do complete redo on the brake system and fuel system,and have a car you drive right away,not 2 years from now.

    Those things used to be semi-popular at one time in the mid 50's to mid-60's. Never saw one being driven anywhere but in a parade,and am fairly sure it would illegal to drive on the road due to the confusion and panic that would result Judging from the wheels/hubcaps,that is a more modern version than 50's or 60's,though.
