    Steering Gear Box Lube

    Or use NGLI # 00 grease... AKA penrite or Corn Head grease.... use it if you are lazy and don't want to fix the steering gear seal leak. This viscosity grease flows and will lube the worm and sector.

    Stuck flywheel

    Did you tap the crank bolts in a small amount just up to the rear main?

    Question for od gurus.

    Normally should engage at or above 25 MPH Governor points /fly weight problem? Make sure the rear OD case is full oil oil too.

    Sticking valve in a rebuilt motor

    the guides need to be free of debris /corrosion before inserting the valve guide pilots using a valve guide brush. On a relatively new guide a .342" pilot should fit snug fully pushed down.... with corrosion in the guide I doubt that pilot would barely go down into the guide... a sign of dirt etc. .002" to .004" Exh. guide clearance.

    P2 steering wheel

    Just use a bearing splitter and puller something like this... It will pull only on the metal ring below the delicate wheel material..... leave the nut loose on the steering shaft threads to prevent the puller from crushing the threads. Pictures of modern set up and the factory Miller puller like would be used on your P2
  6. Time to go through the "MyMopar" Mr tech films and figure out whats wrong and fix it right. View these films... Volume 2 No.11.... How The Hydraulically Transmission Operates Volume 2 No 12.... Hydraulic Transmission maintenance Volume 4 No. 1.....Trouble-Shooting In The Hydraulically Operated Transmission These most important M-6 training films will teach you everything you need to know mainly using a test light.... a DVOM ( digital volt meter) is easier though.
  7. That solenoid does not affect shifting at all. It is to prevent stalling when coming to abrupt stops.
  8. The carb bowl is unique to the BXVES-3 carb... butI notice on your carb you do have the solenoid mounting. Now all you need is to find a solenoid!
  9. That's not the correct Stromberg carb. It should have the little black round anti-stall solenoid sticking out the side of the fuel bowl..and a kick down plunger. Correct carb is # BXVES-3

    Sticking valve in a rebuilt motor

    Nice looking engine. Yep... all the 1-1/2 ton up use the 4 bolt 2-1/2" exhaust manifolds for better breathing...the intake is basically a car intake..🙂

    Door sill mat Plymouth 1949 - New vendor

    Now it's "AMS Obsolete - NOS, Used, Aftermarket & Reproduction MOPAR parts" Mike and Anthony are who I have dealt with... 100% good to deal with.

    Sticking valve in a rebuilt motor

    Odd that the sticking open exhaust valve causes " blowing back through the intake!"

    Sticking valve in a rebuilt motor

    My solution was to run my new engine way more often....never had any valves stick again.
