  1. Just a little FWI.....WD40 isn't a penetrating oil. PB blaster or Liquid Wrench work better.
  2. I bought a new pair from a local trailer supply place. Another time I cut the original perches off the old rearend and used them on the replacement rearend.
  3. Yeah, back in the day....In my case last year. #1 cylinder started loosing compression so I removed the head and discovered the problem. The cylinder and the piston were scored for some damn reason. I'm guessing I got a piece of wire in that cylinder when I was wire brushing the tops of the pistons and valves the previous year when I installed the engine. Anyway...I found a box of 6 pistons with wrist pins and rings 60 over like my engine is on eBay for cheap. I removed #1 Piston and honed out that cylinder and installed the new piston. So far so good.
  4. That felt strip on the clutch cover is standard. Don't trim the cork gasket for the oil pan off. Let it stick up about 1/4 or 3/8" above the side gaskets.
  5. I think he's also throwing in a certificate for a FREE LUNCH.
  6. Couldn't that be welded ?
  7. Have a great trip and visit Paul !
  8. Thanks Francois, I look forward to seeing the photos.
  9. Hey, I may have found it. It's most likely a 1939 Dodge. Anyone here have a '39 Dodge that can confirm this. THANKS GUYS !!!
  10. Well here's a photo of my US 42 Dodge Speedometer glass and all the lettering is actually on a thin plastic embossed piece just behind the clear glass.
  11. I am hoping someone here can identify this speedo lens I have. It's marked 1942 Dodge Canadian. I can't find any dash photos of a '42 Canadian Dodge so I'm hoping someone here can confirm or deny it's label. Thanks, Reg
  12. Yup, sounds like your accelerator pump needs to be replaced. It's a very simple job and you might not even need to buy a new one if you soak the old one in some oil over night. That might fatten the leather plunger back up so it'll squirt when it's depressed.
  13. With the 6 volt system make sure you have heavy battery cables. 12 volt cables can't deliver enough voltage to the starter. The D24 engine is a 48 Dodge 230 engine and rated at 20 more hp !!! than the original 38 201.
  14. My first set of wheels was home made by me in 1959 when I was 11. Then when I was 16 I spotted this car in a field and the shape still appealed to me.
  15. Starter fluid will most likely do the trick. Does for me anyway.
  16. If it's a 315 V8 it's showing on this photo of my Sweptside just behind the throttle return spring.
  17. That temp sensor tube needs to be repaired with a generic new one spliced on.
  18. Here's some on eBay. https://www.ebay.com/itm/1948-1949-1950-Dodge-B-series-pickup-truck-gauge-cluster/401755260013?hash=item5d8a7ac46d:g:-wAAAOSwHN9cmntm
  19. Thanks for reminding me. I just placed an ad in the classified business section.
  20. I'm thinking a section of a 16d nail might just be the ticket.
  21. If the front bumper and underslung spare tire were missing during the weigh in then You could add another 150 or so pounds if you add them later.
