    1937 Dodge, Ol Bessy Is Coming Home!

    Do not confuse me with Sharps40 who does have a 37 Plymouth. I do not. I have a 50 Plymouth Suburban with a Fatman frame stub and MII suspension. Was intalled about 12-14 years ago. Was not much choice back then. Their stuff was OK but suspension in on the smaller diameter tubes and Does Not have the support on the lower arm tube I mentioed to Sharps40 earlier. If/when I continue with this car I will add that suppert for sure!! DJ

    1937 Dodge, Ol Bessy Is Coming Home!

    Heidts does not make a install kit in stock but they are one of the most expensive out there. But they just bought out another company by the name-Chassis Engeneering that did and I liked their products. They were one of the first builders out there and make many Bolt in kits for the MII front suspension.37 Plymouth? Take a look under that name -not changed yet I believe. DJ

  6. View Advert 42-48 Plymouth radiator Just checked and cleaned out by one of the oldest radiator shop. Owner stated it was the cleanest, solid original radiator of the ear he had seen. Was replaced with a aluminum 3 row (overkill) with 16" hi-performance electric fan. Now not sure it was really needed now, but the newer owner liked the look. Asking $400 plus shipping cost- offers?? Questions and hopefully clearer pics can be emailed if needed-had problems with getting the posted size for be able to be posted here for some reason.

    Interesting photos I have run across.

    Something tells me Paul never visited Height Ashbury in SF in the 60's for the free love or went to the Music festivals of the era either! 😕 Too bad! NOT really!! 😉 DJ

    Vacuum to air wipers

    Sure many would like to know as I do, what did that vacuum pump come from(out of) ??

    Engine stumbling

    Looking at the weight on the flap for carb heat on the exhaust manifold , does it not fall forward when hot instead of what your pictures shows it to the rear?? I ask because that system seems to always confuse me and the question is just what I Think (thought), I sort of? understood?? 🙄 Overheating because of this will cause to fuel to vaporize from a liquid and carbs do not deal with vapors.? Getting older does tottally suck at times! 😒 DJ

    Bellhousing/transmission questions for Airflow

    There were two R-10G OD made. One is a long imput shaft for Fluid Drive setups and a shorter one for the standard 3 spd. bell housing non fluid drive. The input shafts can be interchanged, but that requires a transmission take apart to do it. Hope it is not needed and works as is. May want to reads Petes adventure with R-10s. Forum member of the past,may show up occassionily? DJ 1950 Plymouth Special Deluxe.html

    Vacuum to air wipers

    If you still have the flat 6 in your car why not just change the fuel pump over to a dual function pump that pumps fuel and has a attached vacuum pump for the wipers- they work great and easily installed. they were a accessory available for many motors with vacuum wipers back when. Might check with a company by the name- Then and Now. They sell fuel pump rebuild kits and stock some models already rebuilt . Maybe some who has their contact info will chime in. DJ

    Air filter

    Seems that so many heights and outside diameters were made over the years that only measurements of Your air cleaner will work in the end.?? My current oil bath air cleaner on my 50 Plymouth came off a Chrysler of some early year as described on Ebay (which I purchased) and worked well-it was one of the taller ones-works fine but did need the brace to the head for it to stay on! Jus' sayin' 😉 DJ

    What is this button used for?

    Several years ago when I bought my Sift-Rite button they were available fairly often on EBay, but when I looked very recently there were none to be found so I do not know the current price range for a new one?? Are they still available? I love mine with the R-10 OD! DJ

    WPC or Bust

    Reminds of a show I watched a bit earlier today- Charlie Waffles sang a Kids song from his CD called " I Love Boobies!" Took me back to my early childhood! 🤐 DJ

    rear axle swap

    Yes to all suggestions above plus while tranny is out I suggest making sure the bell housing is center to the crank and flywheel when installed. Details are most likely in your repair manual , it is in mine. Also how to center the bell if it is off center. Maybe Don Coatney will post up his pictures on his doing this from giant catalog of pictures?? DJ

    Bellhousing/transmission questions for Airflow

    I'd almost bet the is a member or two have done like you want to do, they also feared the wrath of the club so kept it quiet. Maybe If you were to just ask the question in a general way, you probably will get the negative responses from most of them, But hopefully one or two will PM you with their truths and maybe answer your question?? 😉 DJ

    TV car shows

    Grave Yard Cars?? You don't like his dances or all the face making in closeup on camera?? Stinks, stinks, it takes a lot of patience , Hard to do sometimes, still trying but wearing very thin! I like to try to learn something about the Mopar cars of the performance years!! Love that part of the show! Oh well, seems most TV these days is just almost on the crazy side of life and what people will watch! Time to get off the soapbox! DJ

    Motor plate

    Adapter plate? Never have seen one on a flat 6 Mopar motor. Well it seems time to just suggest that you make two flat plates that mount on existing motor to bell housing bolt holes that will come off on each side toward the frame and then add a horizontal ear to each like a "L", big enough for a cushion to mount. Then fab something of steel (1/4" thick" ?) off the frame to also be horizontal and add a rubber bisket type of motor mount between the two. This type is what is "suggested" by engine to transmission adapter manufacturer Wilcap for flat six Mopar stuff they sell. They Do Not sell such things however- it is up the the mechanic to build what is needed as they see fit. Note some welding required (best) or long bolts?? DJ

    TV car shows

    What is "fake news"??? Keep hearing this term used online but DO NOT watch TV news. If involves political news/politicians, I would just sit and talk like grandpa did years ago- facing towards the TV, loudly say Bunk,!!! Pork barrel!! and sometimes worse. Not worth listening to. Let me know if/when we declare war!! Would rather read/think about cars, some thing else worth thinking about that I have some real control over. If Not leave me alone! My blood pressure is too high as is! 😯 😉 DJ

    Bellhousing/transmission questions for Airflow

    Sure sounds like a question for the Airflow Club-- if there is one and have a section online to ask these questions?? Otherwise it seems to me there my be only way to know for sure, is to remove the current trans and match up specs between the two and do a lot of measurements. If I were to bet offhand I would expect that at least the overall length would cause some needed rework in the middle of the frame/ floor pan area?? Sounds like a good combo for a driver though! Good luck, DJ
