    Looking for info and tips for "updating" my 48 special deluxe coupe

    I agree that unless you are married to a Ford or Chevy engine that the Mopar makes more sense in addition to keeping with the history of Chrysler cars.. Reliable and good parts availability as well. Rear end is up to you of course. Many have fitted modern rear axles for better cruising as well as 4 or 5 speed manual trans. Adapters for automatics are available also.. Higher speeds suggests a brake up grade also.

    Pilot bushing insight needed please!

    I used a puller as well. Then froze the new one and used a socket to drive it in after spraying a little oil into the flywheel hole. Hardest part was removal as expected.
  3. Might contact these folks for options as well: http://www.wilcap.com/webdoc8.html

    Distributor Cap Trouble

    Order a cap for your distributor number. Two different sized of caps are available. If you get the wrong one the spark cannot jump the gap inside the cap to the plugs. To great a distance.

    TV car shows

    Those shows are fine if all you are interested in is something based on a small block chevy and something with a lot of aftermarket repo parts available. Try asking for a 48 DeSoto rebuild in a weekend

    MOPAR Luxury entertainment unit

    A man in the Plymouth I club used to belong to had one in his 1956 Belevidere Seemed to work well although he only had a few records for it.

    28' Chrysler alternator conversion pics

    You might also ask here: http://forums.aaca.org/ Lot of knowledge there as well and a lot of members really up on prewar cars.

    PrismaticPowder Coating -- substitute for chrome plating

    I used chrome paint for my two front bumper guards. You can tell easily but at 50 MPH no one can and most don't care.

    Reliant MOPAR help

    We bought one new in 1983. Loved the car but problems with damage to the under carriage from new and lack of interest in fixing the problem with Chrysler forced us to trade it off in less that a year.

    I have a problem with carburation and/or fuel delivery

    Accelerator pump(s) either not working or set wrong? Is it worse when the engine is hot or cold? Sounds like a lean mixture issue or if you get clouds of black smoke on acceleration the opposite is possible. Too much fuel to fast.
