  1. Overdrive indicator lights

    Greg, Not in quite some time. Joe retired and moved to, I believe, Florida. He sold his Plymouth before moving. I haven't been to the Sully show in a couple of years and that is where I usually saw Rodney. Jim Yergin
  2. Overdrive indicator lights

    Thanks Greg. I check the site on a regular basis to keep up on what my friends are up to. Jim
  3. Overdrive indicator lights

    Ward, Sorry but I no longer have the car so I can't provide a part number. I think you can find them on eBay or from air cooled VW parts suppliers. Just search 6 volt VW headlight relay. Jim Yergin
  4. Started the teardown, and now the build up.

    How refreshing to learn of a helpful DMV. Congratulations, the plates looks great. Jim Yergin
  5. Started the teardown, and now the build up.

    I was very happy with the results. I probably did it 8 or 9 years ago. I sold the car a couple of years ago but they still looked good when I sold it. I used a second hand Chicago Electric powder coating gun that I bought on eBay. Jim Yergin
  6. Started the teardown, and now the build up.

    I was able to powdercoat my 15" wheels using a home powder coat gun and an electric oven/range I got off Craig's List. The wheel just fit in the oven. Jim Yergin
  7. Carlisle Chrysler Nationals

    My past experience at Chrysler at Carlisle is that 90% of it is devoted to the muscle car era with just a smattering of older stuff. Jim Yergin
  8. Cool tunes from stock AM radio with no antenna!

    Yes Bob, I used my stock radio and speaker. However I had to use a 12 volt converter to use the satellite radio in my 6 volt car. Jim Yergin
  9. Cool tunes from stock AM radio with no antenna!

    Another option with the RediRad is to use it with a portable satellite radio unit. I did that with my '41 Plymouth. Used the satellite radio antenna which is a small magnetic disc on my dash that is easily removed. Worked great. Jim Yergin
  10. Started the teardown, and now the build up.

    Looks terrific! Jim Yergin
  11. Explorer rear end with disks

    I installed an Explorer rear end with discs in my '41 Plymouth. There was interference with the stock wheels and I had to remove some material from the calipers to make it work. Because I didn't like having to do that, I ended up converting the rear end to drum brakes. Jim Yergin
  12. Started the teardown, and now the build up.

    Looks great. I know what you mean about fitting the hood. I could never get the hood on my '41 to fit level with the cowl. Jim Yergin
  13. Need Surfboard!

    Bob, Here are pictures from my '41. Hope they help. Jim Yergin
  14. Can't pinpoint accel/decel rattle- OD the culprit?

    Bob, I never experienced that kind of noise in the overdrive in my '41 Plymouth wagon. Jim Yergin
  15. 39 P8 Steering Column Swap - R7 OD

    Lloyd, Sorry but I can't help on the pictures. I no longer have my '41. Jim Yergin
