  1. Electric cooling fans

    https://www.ebay.com/i/191800180184?chn=ps One company that sells 6 volt radiator fans. NOT just on Ebay though. Several models I see 6 volt. This company seems to have a good rep on their products. Recently installed a 16" 2000+ cfm fan of theirs on the front on a 12 volt 1947 Plymouth bus. cpe. A bit noisy when running at idle hot but the fan has a thermostatic adjustable temp switch and only runs for about 15-20 seconds before shutting down when at hot temp idle. Should not even run when at most driving speeds= no HP loss. Just a thought, no other experience with these or the company. DJ

  4. Building a Garage...Input Appreciated

    Does that not make all the neighbors/stray dogs want to go do the marking there also? Bad deal! DJ
  5. Building a Garage...Input Appreciated

    Even here in No. Cal. my friend found out rather quickly- build as big as possible within your max budget- insulate to the max (he did and very glad)- Plumb the stubs into the concrete slabs for bathroom setup( cheap at this point,expensive later if you or next owner wants this) -pour concrete deep enough for a good car/truck lift (not a cheapy!). Looks like a beautiful location! Best to you, DJ

  7. Oil filter

    Sorry I was having issues for some reason for getting the link on the forum reply but I Thought I had figured it out. Search- vintagepowerwagon.com , then go to online catalog-then to engine parts---the filters are on page one under that heading I believe. Sorry bout that, Good luck with the quest! DJ
  8. Oil filter

    For a good used oil filter for Mopar flat 6's check this out. $35 for the filter housing and brackets, $12 for the filter elements. Vintage_Power_Wagons_Parts_Catalog-Group_01_Engine.pdf - Google Drive.html
  9. dodge 23" engine versus a cranbrook '53 engine

    Check this company for car motor and military parts crossover. They specialize in military Mopar vehicle parts-I have read many times how helpful they have been in the past. Many parts are the same but I cannot be totally specific. A free? phone call to see if they will help you out considering the pricing challenges for US parts to Europe.

  13. Using Engine ID Number to Title Car

    You may want to pay an independent vin verifier in your area. This is One company that does this. They can also do the complete Ca. DMV process for you and get your title Without ever you going to a dmv office. Last I looked 2-300 bucks but often worth the trouble! One Co.... http://www.asapvehicleverifiers.com/VV2LocationsServed.html Good luck, DJ
  14. This is the filter I used with a add on filter mount (similar to bones44) on a bracket mounted in a position like the early mounts were off the rear motor head bolts, driver side. Lines like stock per arrows on the new mount. This filter as you can see is made for by-pass oil filtration. Many industrial motors used this by the aftermarket machinery with Mopar flat 6's. mopar bypass filter-wix 51050 oic.bmp
