    48 Plymouth radio

    Interesting to learn this, I had assumed all the Motorola radios worked the same thru the 40’s.

    Pull the silver caps off the buttons and dial in your station with the small dial under that cap. Then replace the silver cap.

    ANSWERED Steering Column Color

    I'm not 100% sure what Chrysler called it but this paint was a near 100% match for the steering wheel that I repaired and repainted. The wheel matched the column. I also just searched the paint color name on this forum and its been used a few time by others here. https://repaintsupply.com/sem-15023-cordovan-brown-color-coat-vinyl-paint-p996.html?utm_source=google-shopping&utm_medium=organic&gclid=EAIaIQobChMIsOHIkJ2n4AIVR1SGCh3VBAlZEAQYASABEgIlJvD_BwE

    Carb Information Resources

    Thanks for the info guys. While I appreciate the value of the scans for portability, I think I will chase one of these vintage Carter Manuals. Will go good on the shelf with the rest of my collection of vintage Mopar service and reference manuals.
  5. Mark I have a Cater Cab manula that describes the various Carb and the breakdown of the carbs. This has been scanned onto CD.  The cost is $20 plus $5 shipping to your home.


    Write to me and I can send a sample page of what is in the catalog.  Also send me your hom email and I will send you a listing of the various other catalogs that I have scanned.

      Thanks Rich. Appreciate the offer. I’ve established a big collection of original manuals in the past ten years and had no idea the carter company created these manuals. To be frank I’m likely to buy one of the vintage editions, just to have in the collection. Just found you on Facebook and sent a request to connect. I travel quite a bit that way, we own a house in NC as well as Mass and pass often.

    Carb Information Resources

    I'm looking for a resource that I suspect existed at one time, maybe still does? Specifically some sort of publication that describes the differences between the B+B Carter Carbs from the 30's -50's. Any one have any links to reference materials? Names of books I can search? Example: Would be nice to see something that gave basics for what the difference is between and D6G2 and D6H1. thanks in advance, Mark D

    Shane is a good friend of mine. I've seen the car you bought up close a year or so ago, when it was with the prior owner also a friend I'd made out that way. All good people and I am sure you will have this car up and running in no time. Love to hear what your plans are for it and what progress you've made. Mark D

    trim nail strip

    Yes, it’s called a tack strip and a modern equivalent is available. Just bought for my convertible top last year from a mail order. Search convertible roof tack strips.

    Engine identification

    Right-o bore and stroke are indeed different. But I’m curious as to any reference materials that might be out there explaining the differences in the 201, 218, and 230 blocks.

    Engine identification

    Last fall I bought a 1940 P10 business coupe. The owner claimed the car had the engine replaced sometime in the past and that the former engine was in the trunk. When I got the car home I removed said engine from the trunk and took these accompanying photos. These past sat few days I’ve been thinking about beginning my first engine rebuild and thought this block might make a good candidate. A couple questions for you guys in advance: - is this a P10 engine? The third character appears to be a letter I... - if this is a P10 201 engine can it be rebuilt as a 230? Thanks - Mark

    Custom Skirts

    Came across a bunch of photos posted on the Hudson Terraplane Facebook page the other day of a fella that built custom fit skirts for his car. The images tell a great story of how he made the skirts with his English wheel, bead roller, and expander/shrinker, and spot welder. He made a couple for his buddy's as well, but noted that they take so much time to produce there was no profit in it. Hope you enjoy the photos as much as I did.
