    Exhaust baffle spring

    Have you checked your vacuum advance ? If it's torn the truck will be very sluggish.

    My 39 Chrysler Royal had a push button starter button on the dash.

    Engine identification by casting numbers

    I was told years ago when I was considering restoring a 38 1/2 ton that they all had 25" engines. The engine number should be stamped on the drivers side up front just below the head. If it is a 38 Truck motor the number should start with a T42 or T43.

    Freshening up a 230

    I was told that the mounts for the later bell and trans are different than the '33 but I don't know this from my own experience. I'm just relaying what I've heard.

    Freshening up a 230

    If your car right now still has the 189 ci 70hp engine I hear you will have to modify the starter in order for it to bolt up to the original bell housing/transmission. The 189 does not have full water jackets around the pistons and the original bell housing has the starter mount closer to the engine because of this. I have heard that you will have to grind a flat spot on the starter where it touches the later engine with full water jackets and maybe even grind a flat spot on the engine too. Let me know how that turns out because I would like to install a larger flat 6 in my 33 Plym also.

    What is this?

    Where does the wire go to from that contraption? It's definitely an after market doohickey.

    Carb Kickin' My Butt

    Check the float bowl shut off valve. It might have a little dirt that is preventing it from shutting off the flow of gas resulting in the float bowl overflowing.
