    Why are parts crap???

    I only buy factory NOS or really nice used parts. Takes awhile but worth it. I don't trust any after market parts as they always are not 100% correct fit or work like factory OE parts. I do have the last Seattle radiator guy who will fix old radiators properly to exact like stock condition but the last one cost me $1700.00 for my truck💯! To me I'll pay the money for good parts and good work.... never for cheap Chinese crap!

    Crank Pulley Install Question

    I wouldn't be too concerned Mark🙂....I used to do them like that and never had a problem with premature end play on any engines I did. But I decided to have an easier more sure way of installing the pulleys and or damper type hubs. So I made the tool.

    Crank Pulley Install Question

    I push them on with a special crank bolt I made. Pounding them on can damage the rear crank thrust bearing... I say can.. not will🔨 These hubs can fit pretty tight onto the crank.

    Fuel Sending Unit Erratic

    Chinese replacement parts are no good.... period. Un-used MoPar factory NOS if you can find it. That's most likely the best bet on senders that will last and be accurate..

    Are any Chinese replacement senders any good? I doubt it.

    1954 Plymouth Suburban Project

    The master cylinder has the stops for the pedals on the cars. Pedal height is adjustable too. Trucks... the floor pan is the pedal stop. No pedal height adjustment.

    Oil or Hydraulic Fluid

    You need to look at your owners manual and get the factory light blue colored 1949-50 Chrysler shop manual. These will get you straightened out.

    Distributor shaft to engine block gasket?

    I have seen engines with that cup washer. No gasket is used with it.

    Oil or Hydraulic Fluid

    Nothing to break loose. The Prestomatic refers to the Chrysler m-6 trans only... nothing to break loose in that or the separate fluid drive coupling.

    You should have put some carefully cut card board on the swivel chair. Now it's probably ruined with oil stains🙁🙁

    Generator vs. Voltage regulator problems

    The regulator is usually the problem of no charging. Today's Chinese replacement regulators will most likely not work or not for long. A NOS never installed factory equipment Autolite regulator is what I use as a replacement.... i buy them off Ebay.

    Maybe you might want to paint the instrument needles as they were when new.. a reddish orange?

    What about the rear axle gauge?

    Looking to rent brake adjusting tool

    40 and 50 grit is what is used on the Ammco shoe arcing machines... and what I use on mine.

    Looking to rent brake adjusting tool

    If the shoe lining arc does not match the drum the tool won't do any good.

    Carter BB on 230 engine

    IMO I'd run the B&B... parts are easy to find...Stromberg not so. Carter's are a good carb.

    Warped Carburator Horn fixed

    The idle and main air bleed are affected also a poor seal between the top cover and main carb body. Can cause poor idling and or high speed mis- fire.
