    Heater duct and stuff

    The thermostat is in the water outlet housing at the front of the head like the six cylinder engine.

    Pfaff and Consew user here....most important is setting the properly serviced machine up for your sitting height for good treadle control. Yes they are sensitive but if the women in factories can run them so can us pansy ass men! There is a servo motor kit for those who cannot man up. Read, learn, watch video's and practice.... a lot. Go slow and easy ...you can do it!

    Industrial Engine

    That manifold is a part you will need sooner or later as they crack and cannot be repaired properly. I have a pile of them for my cars and have replaced a few over the years for me and others.

    Industrial Engine

    A 1950 Chrysler straight 8 exhaust manifold will directly bolt on any 323 straight 8 block. Don't buy an engine that doesn't turn over and is broken up in any way. Any 1946-50 8 cylinder long block is a direct replacement, But accessories..gen, dist, intake manifold, throttle linkage, carb ,choke etc might need to be swapped.

    Oil Pans Types

    My 51 Plymouth has baffles, my 53 Savoy did not.... my 52 Dodge had baffles. I have not seen baffles in the B series 1/2 thru 1 tons. Here is a factory picture out of the 1949-52 Dodge shop manual showing a baffled oil pan.

    Heater duct and stuff

    Any 500 Series ( upper line) heater box with the heater core in it will fit your car out of any 1949-50 Mopar. There are some on E-bay. Here's a maybe lead on a heater duct.https://www.ebay.com/itm/Duct-8-Cyl-Chrysler-DeSoto-1949-1950-1951-1952-install-ready-Complete/272788567674?hash=item3f8377367a:g:4cAAAOxy-HtRYTgG:rk:5:pf:0 He says it fits all 1949-52.....not true as 1951-52 eights were the V-8 hemi. The ducts are different between 49-50 and 51 -52 eight cylinder cars.. The one you need has to curve around the carb. 1949-1950

    Color on wheels

    The 1947-48 Chrysler Eight cylinder cars originally had caps and wide trim rings that covered the wheels completely... 100%. So the wheels were black no need to match the car color.

    Oil Pans Types

    Those are factory baffles in the first oil pan... a more deluxe pan to keep the oil in the sump on slopes while moving as mentioned.. The U-slot is what the dip stick slides into.
