    Cell phones and driving

    Mount the drivers seat over the front bumper.....watch the accident rates and cell phone usage go down.

    slow vacuum wiper motors

    I used a couple of dabs of chassis grease. It originally had grease packed in it that was hardened and dried. No wipers at all. I cleaned all the old crap out of it and greased up the vac chamber on both sides of the wiper/paddle gizmo and it worked like new. I think the grease helps seal the vac chamber and lubes the seals as well.

    Time to clean the workbench.

    Too much work to clean 'em up.....looks like mine!

    53 Fuel Tank Fittings

    Also, since the tank fitting is not threaded all the way to the seat, you will need to reuse or find a nut with a shoulder on it like in post #4. Without this feature, there is nothing bearing against the flared line so the line can not be tightened.

    rear window wiper??

    '48 Hudsons had 'em. Vacuum with a separate control knob.

    Thermostat housing

    Mopar housings for V8 engines from the 70's use one that will work on the '51 and '52 models if that helps. I think they changed the housing later on in the 50's sometime to accommodate a lower hood profile....

    Another brake adjustment option

    What is a "flangette"? Where would one obtain one? Pics?

    Brass fitting

    Pretty sure they are both 1/8" npt. I'm doing this same thing myself using a Wix 24755 adapter and a wix 51320 or napa 1320 spin on filter with 90 degree fittings on the adapter.

    1951 Plymouth/Dodge Gas Tank

    I bought and installed this same tank...I posted some pics of the new and old. Only complaint I have is he lowered the price just after I purchased mine for $249. The local radiator shop wanted $200 just to clean and seal the old one. So not a bad deal. Btw...my old tank just has some very light surface rust on the inside and no pin holes...if anyone is interested.

    Steering column seal

    I fixed the link to the pics...should be visible now.

    Steering column seal

    This is the one that keeps out junk that gets between the jacket and shaft. Keeps that crap from falling into the steering box. The factory seal was very brittle so I came up with this:

    I made two spacers this afternoon. Makes installing the brackets very easy.

    What is this?

    Not sure....just hope you are good at rust repair. Probably new floors at the least.

    Fuel pressure

    Simple...Take off the air cleaner, do not start the engine, run the fuel pump and look down into the carb. If gas is flowing, then there is too much pressure. This is assuming the float is adjusted properly. I like to go 1/8" lower then spec as that seems to work better with today's lousy gas. Adjustable regulators that mount in front of the carb are available.
