  1. Exciting 1933 Dodge project!

    Yes Knuckle, the reason I couldn't use the original drums on the later rear end was due to the fact that the '33 axles are smaller in diameter than the mid 50's. The profile of the original wheels is much different than the later wheels so that the wire wheels were not coming in contact with the later drums where the lug nut holes are.
  2. Exciting 1933 Dodge project!

    Very nice car ! Do you know what the more modern rear axle installed was from ? I have a 33 Plymouth sedan with a 4.37 rear gear ratio that I would like to replace with a better ratio for cruising that will work with the original wire wheels. I tried a mid 50's Plymouth with a 3.9 ratio but the wire wheels don't work with the 50's brake drums.
  3. Flathead six identification

    Is the KDS6 engine 23" long or 25" long? Your existing 218 should be 23" long.

  8. Cheap 218 in Idaho

    It was but I sold it in the late 90's. It was a great truck. I use to use it in my construction business and as a daily driver. Drove it over Donner pass several times. Good body and no rust. Just needed paint and some grill bars.

  11. Game plan

    The 52 Plym Cambridge 218 was rated at 97hp. A 52 Dodge Coronet 230 was rated at 103hp. If you were lucky enough to find a later 50's 230 they were rated at 138hp !

  19. Dim headlights

    As stated earlier on my 42 Dodge coupe I was only getting 4.5 volts to the headlight socket without the engine running so the new halogen bulbs were dimmer than the conventional ones. I then installed a relay and cleaned all connections and got a reading of 5.8 volts at the socket. Yay !!!! Brighter lights now !!!!
