  1. Piston ID

    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.
  2. Piston ID

    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.
  3. Piston ID

    Thanks for that. I boo booed with supplier it is "Chryco". See photos.
  4. Piston ID

    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.

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

    That's what my manual says. But the button is just a push fit, no turning. Mine is an Australian '52. Roger.
  11. 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.

  14. Trophy Winner

    Bob, for the Annual tour trophies we mix it up each year so everyone gets a chance. Another one was Baldest tyre. That was won by the oldest tyre as there was no bald ones. Last year we had a Best Arse End trophy, which was won by a Big Fin rear end. Just a fun 3 day weekend. Around 40 club cars this year. Roger.
  15. Trophy Winner

    Went on the Chrysler Restorers Annual Tour last weekend. My 1952 Dodge won Best Bonnet Emblem (hood to you) Trophy. Roger.
