  1. Now you can change your title below your member name to: "Frank the Elder. Mopar Prophet" ! I'm on my knees, face to the ground currently in front of a p-15 alter. Only problem, I cannot get back up! ☚ī¸ DJ
  2. Just measured a P-15 clearance for you. This 47 Ply. has the Same champion rad. you mention but has 16" electric fan in front of it. Purchased with a different electric fan and no motor driven fan. So I measured from the radiator fins to the front side of the water pump face which is 2-3/8" between the two. Should be close with stock fan but might work fine. I think stock setup is very close originally, is yours?. Measure from your pump pulley face toward the forward most edge of the fan blade to see on your p-15. Hope that info tells you what your asking, Also, holes in new rad. matched pretty well ,only two needed slight opening toward the sides. Yes the neck needs to be altered as you said. DJ
  3. Something like one of these? Be sure to check travel length. How about when truck is jacked up by the frame?? https://www.summitracing.com/search/Product-Line/Borgeson-Universal-Telescoping-Steering-Shafts/ DJ
  4. Now when you locate a used spin balancer you can open that friendly tire shop or not. To many friends looking for free help. 😉 DJ
  5. Maybe a complete explanation from someone who certainly know more than I. 😄 DJ how-do-sacrificial-anodes-work.html
  6. Well one place carries what you want but it is in US. https://www.summitracing.com/parts/SUM-G2516/ DJ
  7. I would replace the plug for now but it also begs a question-where is your vacuum hookup for a hose for your vacuum wipers>> Maybe that is where it used to be somehow?? DJ
  8. res Now I know why I never heard of that car dealer. He was located away from most of the new car dealers where the police station now stands. Plus- I stated new "cars". Rambler or Metropolitan never seemed to be real cars (🤐) and my dad would never ever buy a Rambler so we never went to the dealership to see the New cars when they came available as was a highlight in September for the grownups back in the day! War surplus spot lights a blazin' and all. Even bands at times. 🤩 Man that dude made a bundle of $$ ( 5mil. was major bucks back then) when he sold the property where the 'Mc Henry Village" was built! The village was a brand new style of spread out multi shopping experience with about 25 businesses in one big lot with plenty of parking in contrast to most similar types stores downtown where parking was a bitch! DJ
  9. My bet is a used car dealer. I can tell you that by 1955 no factory dealers had that name in Modesto. Before that I did not look much as cars because I would have less that 5 years old. DJ
  10. I think I may prefer the EC52PLY mainly as the top rad. connection is easy to find a curved hose to fit as compared to cutting off the top connect on the CC4749 which is the wrong angle and will not work as is. Experience with that rad. in a 47 Ply..😏 The 3 row model really is overkill as this cools very well as compared to originals. 2 row is plenty- But 3 row is only a few $$ more so why not? 😉 Just 1 opinion ! DJ
  11. Many of the films cover Mopar mechanical and body basics so I guess that I'm saying almost all the films can help when you are working on a particular part or car section. DJ
  12. Tony, I found my reconstruction pictures of the underdash heater tube just for clarification The outlets for driver and passenger heat to the feet are shorter than I remembered. I built this one from fiberglass using the badly broken one as a mold. Hope this is informative. Any other thing that I may help with-give a holler. DJ
  13. Trans mount ??? Ya know, that big chunk of iron thingy that the trans bolts to! 😉 DJ
  14. I found on my 50 Ply. the same issue with the driver side rear mount install so- - I took the pipe section loose from the upper washer by putting in a vise just open wide enough for the pipe part to drop down in with washer on top and took a correct size punch and hammer and rotated the pipe -hit -rotate -etc.-until pipe came loose. Install just the top rubber and washer, install pipe from below add lower parts. I installed the bolt from below and used a locking nut on top to insure it would never fall out. PS- I still had to use a hammer to get the top rubber mount and washer in place- What a pita! DJ
  15. Seems to be a fair price! OD transmission did not come in that car. stock, that is.😎 If it was closer I would buy it for a easy flip! 😉 DJ
