  1. I'm pretty sure they sell a deer in a headlight
  2. Thanks that's probably what I would have done if nobody had anything. Knowing hobby lobby they probably have a p15d24 section
  3. Finally had some spare time that coincided with decent weather to work on a few parts to bring back to the Dodge to get it going. I have a brand new looking intake and exhaust manifold ready to put on. I repaired my electric choke, brazed some threads onto the manifold to hold it in place. I've got pretty much everything to put the brakes back together but I noticed one of the felt washers that go in the metal cup has disintegrated. Anyone have a source or suitable replacement?
  4. Stopped by Harbor Freight and picked up a 12ton that was on sale.
  5. Is a press necessary to put a new bearing onto the rear axle? Or can it be driven on with a hammer and tube or a punch?
  6. I've heard that modern detergents are much gentler than those from years past. I used detergent oil when I first got my car running 20 years ago not knowing anything about anything. I changed the oils several times before dropping the pan. When I got around to dropping the pan it was clean as a whistle and no ill effects. The car sat for about 20 years before I got it. Now I may have just gotten lucky, but I'm not too scared of detergent oil.
  7. Early Dodge strutting its stuff.
  8. With a locked up clutch you can sometimes put in it gear since they aren't spinning and mesh up. Sometimes the teeth will line up peak to peak and you can't get it in gear. Are you able to get it in gear while it's running, it's just making a bad noise when you do
  9. I'd appreciate it Ed. I was getting ready to post something in the classifieds but will wait to hear from you.
  10. Thanks Shel, just what I needed. Well, besides the actual axle. Another older tape measured 32-1/4" and the other was just under so I'd say that's the measurement i need to go with
  11. I'm on the hunt for a replacement axle for my D24. I wanted to see if anyone has the measurement for the P15 axle so I can include or exclude them from my search. Mine measures right around 32-3/16
  12. Being out of the loop for as long as I have I can't believe I'm reading this statement! Glad they have straightened things out there.
  13. I almost had a rapid fender removal when the bearing blew the rear axle out. Luckily a little hammer and dolly was all it needed to roll the lip back in.
