    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.

    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.

    I put this in my 52 Plymouth and although the leaking did not stop it did get quite a bit less. https://www.amazon.com/ATP-AT-205-Re-Seal-Stops-Bottle/dp/B000NVW1LM

    1952 Dodge Coupe hot rod

    Usually not a big fan of rods but yours is an interesting idea. I also am a fan of inline sixes and the AMC/Chrysler 258 one is a fav of mine.

    source for trim piece

    They are hard to find and usually expensive. I looked for several years before finding good driver quality ones for my 1952 Plymouth

    You might PM this member as I believe he is in either Holland or Germany. I tried member search but apparently it is not working. His name is Go Fleiter He might know of someone.

    Has anyone ordered parts from rock auto?

    I only had one problem with an order that was a bit difficult to straighten out but other wise no issues. I will continue to buy from them as the opportunity presents itself. Beware of the short time that they allow returns though. If you decide you don' need or want something be sure to return it promptly.

    remembrance tour "Battle of the Bulge" (right in my back yard)

    Great pictures of both the Memorial and your car.My Father was in the Corp of Engineers in France for sure and maybe Germany as well. He also did not talk much about the war unless he had had a few beers then he might tell a story or two. As a young boy I hung on every word.

    Would not a set from a 12 volt 55 or newer car work?

    Anyone fix fluid drive in Chicago?

    These guys are in Fox Lake, IL and I have had good service from them. I don't know if they do transmission work but could probably steer you in the correct path. http://www.jerrysautocare.net/ You could also contact the folks at Volo Auto Museum as they were the ones who connected me with Jerry's. https://www.volocars.com/
