    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.

    Fuel pump block off plate

    Thanks guys. I'm really surprised no one is making them. I'm busy making Dash Glass. I know....I'll make them out of glass 😉 kidding. Check me (grandpadodge) out on eBay if interested.....

    Speedometer lube time

    That's because the speedo pictured is a Dodge truck. I'm not familiar what the same vintage car speedo looks like but I have see some with a felt covered hole that will take a couple of drops of oil.

    1937 chrysler visor question

    In most cases, and maybe all, the visor needs a center support to avoid having the visor take to the air while driving. Can you post a photo of it ?

    Speedometer Dial Is Tilted

    It looks like the clear plastic disc is warped. hum......I wonder if a hair dryer would un-warp it ? This place sells new clear plastic speedo disks that might work for your car. dcmclassics.com

    Speedometer Dial Is Tilted

    Yes, setting your drill to reverse will do it. How about posting a photo of your speedometer.

    How about drilling some hole in the bottom of the hood lip and then installing some of the bumpers that plug into the holes.
