    Chrysler industrial engines

    I believe some of those Worthington models also the 8&3/4” CC full floating third member. Some guy on E-bay bought one last year or so and was going to get it running again. Also believe it had the crash box 4 speed also.

    Me and the B-1-D

    As far as carb kits go, I use the Hy-Grade kit from Standard Motor Products - the number of the kit is 101A. Napa also has a kit - 2-5066A.

    Me and the B-1-D

    Glad you found it. Sometimes it seems like the factory had kids doing the number stampings - especially on the frame serial number and the third member ratio numbers. I believe the 4.30 ratio was the factory standard with the very rare 3.91 and the 4.89 as options.

    Tie Down Hooks - Thoughts?

    The T-207 WC-1 truck beds had the early “D” ring closed tie down hooks. The later T-211 and T-215 aeries 1/2 ton pick ups had the open type hook like is shown on the above picture.

    Niiiiiice. Those Mopar flatheads run practically forever with the proper maintenance.

    Wonder what 3rd member ratio you have. The ratio can be found on a flat rectangular pad located below the filler plug and reinforcement rib on the right side of the truck. Should be stamped either 3.91, 4.30 or 4.89. Most of the time you really have to wire brush the pad to get the stamped numbers to show. At least you will know what the ratio was out of the factory. Nice looking rig. Get it running and on the road. Good luck.

    LEAking rear end near u joint

    If you are going to have to replace the pinion oil seal, this is the factory tool to use to make your job a whole lot easier. You can also drill two holes on opposite sides of each other on the face of the seal. Make a pulling plate drilling one hole in the center of it and 2 holes that line up with the holes on the oil seal. Screw two long sheet metal screws through the plate and into the 2 holes on the face of the seal. Using a slide hammer with the proper adapter in the center hole of the plate pull it out. I have not tried this method, but it is said to work if you don't have the factory pulling tool. Good luck.

    Best way to pick up a Christmas tree

    I’m sure it is a good freeway cruiser with the mods you have done to it. Nice color and the highlighted Dodge tailgate adds a finishing touch. I believe the Navy calls you guys Puddle Jumpers or something like that(Just kidding now). LOL.

    Split Ring Tire Question

    I don’t know about “Seating” a bead at 100PSI, but I would think your head stands a good chance of being “Unseated” from the rest of your body at that pressure with a split ring wheel. Ouch!!!!!!!

    Thank you for your service. My older son is a CPO in the Navy. He’s a Crew Chief and a rated rated Rescue Swimmer on MH-60’s. Transfered this past May to NAS Atsugi with the family. He’s got about 1 more enlistment to go before retirement. That will give him about 23 years. Hope to go visit him in the new year. I like your truck. Is it stock? Does it still have the 217 flathead?

    Hello CWO. Do not mean to pry, but does CWO mean your a retired Chief Warrant Officer?

    Rear Axle Identification on B-1-F

    The ratio should be stamped between the 2 carrier bolts that are parallel to the left (drivers side) axle tube. Go to the “Pilothouse Knowledge”site. Click on to the 1948-53 truck parts book. Click to the rear axle section. The photos show you where the axle ratio’s are located for all the relevant truck models.

    Bad 230 crank

    It doesn’t matter whether you have a 23” block or a 25” block as long as you use the crank “And” rods from one and install them in another block of the same size they will work.

    ANSWERED Long block engine number

    That is probably a rebuilders number.
