    1952 Dodge Coupe hot rod

    When I get my car back together. I’ll have to come by for a visit (I live in Santa Cruz). At the rate I’m going it might be in 2019. 😏 Great project. I look forward to your progress.

    The car it’s going on is a fluid drive. (1947 Dodge) When I bought it, it had a carter carb with a sisson choke. My 1950 Dodge truck is fluid drive with a carter carb and runs fine. shouldnt be an issue, but maybe someone with more knowledge will comment.

    '58 Ute - Rare?

    Northern California. Hmmm. I wonder where and if it still exists. What a mystery. Could be down the street from me. (Or sadly enough it could have been consumed in any of the numerous fires we’ve had over the last few years)

    It’s Duplicolor “Aluminum” engine enamel. I’m happy with the way it looks. I put a couple of coats on. It drys fast. I guess we’ll see how it lasts.

    Rebuild of 230

    I bought most of my engine parts and had my cam ground by Egge. (They source some of their parts from Kantor) If I had to do it again, I would go with Terrill Machine. I had a very positive experience with them. Their prices are some of the cheapest and they will ship the next day. I had to wait several weeks for Egge because they didn’t have certain things in stock.

    What about valves

    I would recommend Terrill Machine from Texas. He will sell you guides, valves, tappets and springs and ship them the next day. Very knowledgeable, no BS. Cheaper then VPW Other options are : Egge Machine or. Kantor Machine I find VPW to be the highest priced parts supplier over all. Good luck!

    Put the head and torqued to 65lbs in proper sequence. Used copper gasket sealer. Got the water pump back on. Put some paint on it.

    What you have there is called a CHICK MAGNET. Your going to have to beat them off with a stick. Just make sure the inside smells nice (not like rat sh*t) and your good to go. The seats are big and comfortable for some serious “hand holding” 😉. Godspeed young man! I look forward to you getting it on the road.

    Got the oil seal in the timing chain cover. Decided to put a speedi-sleeve on the dampner flange. Used the dampner flange to float the cover before tightening bolts. put the oil pan on, making sure not to cut the excess gasket. Decided to seal the pan side of the gasket and just grease the block side (the Don Coatney method). Hopefully no leaks.
