    I finally got it down to the exhaust shop this week. The guy did a great job. Nice and clean. Now I can hear that I need to check the valve clearances. I also noticed that I have a stuck rear brake. It was smoking by the time I got it drug home. Oh well. I’m much closer to getting it on the road.

    Man! That looks like a really clean, rust free car. I look forward to watching your progress. I recommend that you take tons of pictures of your disassembly. Take photos of everything. You will thank yourself later. Bag and tag everything you pull off.

    Hood latch spring 1947 dodge

    Thank you for the photo and explaination. Man! I would have never found that little hook. It’s more like a little bump. I had to run my finger along the bottom to find it. Thanks again!

  9. Hi

    I’m going to be in Billings at the end of April for my nephew’s graduation. Do you ever open your shop to visitors? I would love to see your projects.

    Oil Leak from Filter when hot

    Or. You could change your oil and buy a new filter. They usually come with a new gasket.

    1953 Dodge - What have I got into

    I’ve personally seen a dashknob deal go down. I think one of them was wearing a cowboy hat. 😉

    Maybe DC can better confirm your question. But, yes those springs look like they are the proper springs used to mount the throw out sleeve to the clutch fork.

    I believe Dartgame is right. Your tip looks damaged. I don’t have a picture of the tip, but here is a picture of how mine sits. Maybe someone can chime in with the proper hole diameter.
  14. Thanks Tom- I was missing the "texas shaped" mounting bracket! Found it.

      No problem. Good luck on your build.

    Oil pump

    My guess is that the pump sits in the engine at an upward angle ( at least with a flathead) . Once primed, the oil would not drain out of the pump.
