    Piston ID

    A good ending to this topic. A bloke in Italy saw the post and realised they would be suitable for his WW2 Dodge truck, with Canadian motor. So today they were sent on their way to Italy from here in Australia. What a great Forum, keeping old dpdc vehicles on the road worldwide.

    The vacuum thingy is a Vacuum Brake Booster. Lots of early cars here in Australia had them to improve braking.

    Andy, I bought them on Ebay about 6 years ago. Just thought they might be handy if my motor needed a rebuild. I was a bit "green" about Mopar parts then.

    Andy, From what I found, this size was first used in 1942 S10 De Soto. Good idea with box I only have two and there are 7 pistons. 6 of them are complete with rings and gudgeon pins and covered in a thick preservative grease. The clean one has gudgeon only. Didn"t think to ask Jim. Thank's mate.

    I have some NOS Mopar pistons and would like to know what they are used in. I have found they were used in DeSoto/Chrysler 251 and Chrysler 265. But this size is also used in the Red Ram. So which motor are they for, or can they be used in either one. Mopar Part number 966918. 3 7/16 + 0.020. Thank You.

    This is a 1952 Australian Dodge Kingsway dash. I sold this car a few years ago.

    Here are some photos of how my '52 comes apart. No push and turn, just pull with tape. Roger.

    That's what my manual says. But the button is just a push fit, no turning. Mine is an Australian '52. Roger.

    steering wheel help

    The horn button is cup shaped and held in by a sprung edge ? Mine comes out by sticking a piece of duct tape on it and pulling. Or prise it out carefully with small screwdriver. Then you will see 3 bolts holding the horn ring. Roger.
