  1. Sounds like a great deal, but where are the 230" rods ?? Crank specs?? Looks to be unrestored/surfaced. Other wise?? DJ
  2. Why is it lower in height than the rear?? OK with that Q.. they were made that way. The other questions. ?? Still wondering, of course I maybe wrong, has happened before. DJ
  3. Look closely- does it appear to have had some repairs to you?? 1- the mount outer ear of the front carb.? Why is it lower in height than the rear?? 2- the rear hole that had a freeze plug installed but gone and some of the stakes to tighten the plug gone.?? DJ

    Sleepless nights

    thought retirement meant time to start slowing down?? I guess you did not get the Email or Memo?? 😉 DJ
  5. Use some fairly thin rubber sheet material bolted on?? May need some rubber parts that bolt together to make it match the area. Where you live do they use salt on the roads? Even where almost dry out there, it almost always seems some moisture to drive through. Do you plan to wait till mid summers to drive this?? Didn't think so. After all this work most of us here will have to try driving as soon as possible! 😁 DJ
  6. Never had to to what you talk about but my 1946-54 Plymouth repair manual does cover both removals of these glass parts very well with word descriptions and a good amount of pictures. Need to buy a repair manual. Mine is one of the reprints. Cost about $35 a few years ago. Found on E Bay. Very helpful on many occasions. Best I can do to help. DJ

    1950 Wayfarer sedan

    Mopar kept selling flat 6's for Industrial use until about 1966-67. All later 23" models (American built) years will be 230 ci. They will work in cars/trucks etc. with correct parts back to about mid/late 30's Mopars. Some have weird #'s stamped in and are Most likely replacement blocks/motors sold until supply ran out. Sometimes by the installer without a factory stamped number. Not to confuse, but it sure can go there at times ! Check this site for application and sizes by motor number. http://www.t137.com/registry/help/otherengines/otherengines.php DJ

    Identify this motor cycle

    Bet you would! Makes it easy to see why. The stock Pan is most likely worth 3+ times ( restored stock) what a '09 road king is, not even looking at rarity of the Pans these days. 😉 DJ

    Need info on my P-15 motor

    In a new engine 115lb. and even across would be ideal. Never seems to be perfect but close. On a well used engine but still runs good anything above 70 lb. and even is OK for now. Some may say 90+ is much better which I also agree with. On the other hand a motor (flathead mopar) will still run OK if 50+ And even. Major unevenness PSI between cylinders is Not OK. So, what you got?? DJ

    Science Fair

    Should we get Paul flamings opinion on this?? He was a college English teacher. Just a thought? DJ
  12. thrashfit- I bet your have never liked the song with the line- "I love a rainy night" - - - Even more working in that garage! (shed). DJ

    Engine dies

    Found the MyMopar films on u-tube. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TLZcbFHIN1M DJ
  14. OK, if it runs very straight and in a neutral for/aft position it will most likely fine. In one of your pictures posted it looked nice and straight but in the next pic from a different angle I thought it may be at an angle. Just thought it was worth mentioning based on my earlier experience! ☚ī¸ Looking good, DJ
