  1. Lol my memory is we did them warm... Unless they got done a second time
  2. The guy that originally rebuilt that truck as well as the current owner are part of the 39-47 truck group. One of those two had those mudflaps made
  3. Our local junkyard somehow got a bunch of something similar to that but they were minus drivetrain. Not sure if the engines got pulled because they weren't compliant or what
  4. I run 10w40 in my flatheads and don't have drastic oil leaks. I would say you have a bad seal somewhere.
  5. I believe I've heard the pilot house trucks don't use the rubber line like the cars and earlier trucks. The rest of it can be recreated with steel tube from any parts store. I don't have a rubber section in my 46 -just a loop for vibration.
  6. My coupe is older and has a fuse rather than a circuit breaker. When I had an issue with my lights going out frequently it was due to a wire that got out of place. Eventually the clutch pedal wore through the insulation and from then on anytime I put the clutch in with the lights on POP fuse blown.
  7. Glad your front axle was an easy fix! I've personally never seen a bad VR cause a discharge like that with the engine off. Sounds like you've got something drawing that shouldn't be. With everything off how much is it showing negative?
  8. I love the look of those flat nose big trucks!
  9. Yup I sharpied mine and I got the idea from someone else on here I believe David Maxwell
  10. The ball goes in a hole and should be held in place by a c clip. I can't think of what the second hole would be.
  11. This is? https://www.amazon.com/Tool-Aid-18960-Ratcheting-Terminal/dp/B006O1Y1FY/ref=asc_df_B006O1Y1FY/?tag=hyprod-20&linkCode=df0&hvadid=242037806074&hvpos=1o2&hvnetw=g&hvrand=5053499055749999022&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=&hvdev=c&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=9019545&hvtargid=pla-572274699817&psc=1
  12. On the 39-47 trucks every other bolt is shorter and just goes between the floor boards. Looks like that probably continued into the pilot house ones.
  13. That is not normal but not necessarily something horribly wrong either. Could just be bad motor mounts allowing the engine to shift position.
  14. the smaller BB goes under the accelerator pump. If you put the bigger one in there it will get stuck-trust me!
  15. one other piece I didn't see mentioned-the rear side window on a business coupe is fixed and rolls down on a club coupe
  16. New ones are available from DCM in Michigan
  17. I took my pickup to the grocery store today. When I came out there was another classic Dodge in the lot. Early 60s Dodge box truck that said backus fire Dept on the sides. I didn't get a chance to talk to the owner but hopefully will see him around the neighborhood
  18. Unless you don't have it mounted to the head. If for some reason it got moved to the firewall or inner fender you would need the flex lines.
  19. my advice is to ditch that hideous grill bar after you get it home
  20. Plymouths were never equipped with the first gen hemi.
  21. last I've heard they are providing a little less in the way of decoding the build cards and no longer charging for the service
  22. Those look like 51-52 caps without the ship. I wonder if they are old aftermarket caps.
  23. That is a second series 49. The 46-48s continued into early 49 but what you have is what most consider a 49.
  24. I believe someone on the forum sourced via ebay a modern starter that was adapted to the flatheads.
