    Oil Pan Installation

    I thought this was a ladies forum so I posted using dress making pins. Would pin basting your pan gaskets be easier to understand?

    Oil Pan Installation

    3/4" dressmaking pins pushed down as shown in the picture... 2 at each corner. I leave them in.

    Oil Pan Installation

    never trim the end gaskets... no need to. Use six guide studs...two at each end of the block and two at the center of the block. These will hold the end of the side rail gaskets in place as the pan is drawn up semi tight....then remove them and install the regular remaining six pan bolts. I also use 2 small pins to attach/hold each end of the side rail gaskets to the protruding top ends of the "U" cork gasket...using sealant where the ends meet.

    Heater duct and stuff

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

    Different color and length of springs because of exhaust valve rotators.

    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!

    Oil Pans Types

    1948-53 pans.... not the W series correct?

    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.

    Heater duct and stuff

    Here's what some of it looks like...the thick card board heater duct is an extremely difficult piece to find. 1949-50 NewYorker and Saratoga are the same heater parts... but there are different heater model systems like 500, 550 etc. The fan motor is under/in front of the front radiator access cover.

    Industrial Engine

    1946 to 1948 Chryslers use a 2 BBL intake manifold. 1948 Chrysler eights use a 2 to 1 BBL cast iron manifold to single barrel carb adapter . The adapter is required as Chrysler switched to the Carter B&B 1 BBL in late 1947 thru 1948. You would have to use your intake manifold off your old engine also because the 1949-50 intakes don't have a throttle linkage mounting boss at the rear of the manifold.

    Brake Shoe Thickness Difference

    If the newly relined shoes (Linings) are thicker than .185" (3/16") you might not be able to get the drums back on. This if the drums are near stock diameter... STD. not turned.

    37 Dodge 1.5 ton gear ratio

    😀I think you need to slow down a bit in your thinking on that 37 Dodge truck....

    Color on wheels

    The wheels should be black on the C39 Chryslers. NOT body color.

    Industrial Engine

    That's a 1950 Chrysler Satatoga or NewYorker 323 eight. Last year for the straight eights.

    Grounding and painted parts

    Make sure the mounting pad/area for the starter is clean of paint. Otherwise possibly slow or no stater operation....been there on that.
