  1. we've been using an outboard tank on Dads 46 1/2 ton but it's a work truck and doesn't leave the woods. For your pilot house I believe a couple guys have been using the reproduction 39-47 tank and slightly modifying it to fit.
  2. I remember thinking about this car frequently as a kid thinking how cool it will be when 2007 finally comes and a new car will be dug up. When the time finally came I decided I couldn't afford the trip down there and canceled my room. As far as the car goes I didn't miss much.
  3. That car is paper thin. It would disintegrate on the first pothole!
  4. Glad she has found a home. I wouldn't exactly say restored though. More like thoroughly cleaned up.
  5. They are around. The lowside pilot house beds are rumored to be the same sheet metal. Fenders are a little harder but can be had in fiberglass
  6. One of these is close to the top of my list
  7. Um where are you seeing a V8???
  8. my good local hardware store that has the best selection has grades 2 5 and 8. I rarely waste my time with 2.
  9. Depends a lot on the 49. You said it ran. It is rebuilt or just a runner? How are the brakes? Has anything been redone or just old stuff that may or may not work? Those 2 lowest grill bars appear to be missing and replaced with something else. Those are hard to find in stainless to match the top one. Also the parking lights and headlight rings appear to be missing. Anything else missing?
  10. I'd still say a freshly painted rolling chassis is worth more than a complete project truck
  11. well then if you do make that trade I would expect a little $ thrown in with the 49
  12. you are correct on #1. I've got #1 and 2 covered.....
  13. 1956 first year they got rid of the toothy grill
  14. on the 51s the jack base has a hook on the floor and then you have a spring that you use with the jack to hold it down. the tire wrench just sits against the tire in the well
  15. or transfer the ring gears?
  16. 46-48 plymouth rear fenders are all the same except maybe wagons
  17. The club coupe rear window is different from the business coupe but I've read I believe on here that the club coupe rear window fits the entire DPCD line for 46-48
  18. You need to come visit her
  19. I've got 2 pieces of copper with a T to replace one of the broken heater pipes in my 48. Mine is painted grey though
  20. yup any reason why you wouldn't paint those wheels to match the truck instead of the other way around?
  21. It's very hard to ensure it all stays external. I wouldn't do it unless this was a full rebuild and you were tanking the block afterwards. Which I believe cleans it anyways.
  23. That would be the cast date. I've always heard they liked to let them season for a while so your actual build date is likely later.
  24. Being it was rebuilt by a shop doing large amounts of engines are you sure it was rebuilt to tractor specs? They could have easily mixed and matched parts to rebuild to car specs or truck or??
  25. we're getting another round of bad weather tonight. Hope you got that p15 inside now!
