  1. My 48 Plymouth would do 60 on the highway with absolutely no issues before I installed the R10 overdrive. After that 75 - 80 no problem. One thing to consider with the increased speeds is braking. There are several disc brake kits available that are fairly simple to install if you have even the slightest of ability.
  2. Brillman Company https://brillman.com/ has everything you will need and at reasonable prices.
  3. Both Mouser and DigiKey are distributors for the company I work for. Both ship same day that the order is received, so it would just be however long it takes the parts to get from Mansfield, TX (Mouser) or Thief River Falls, MN (DigiKey) to your location.
  4. My daughter is a theatrical lighting designer and she drove my wife's Toyota Highlander with a light gray interior to work one day. After crawling around in the rafters of the theatre all day hanging lights for a show she got in the car to come home. What we ended up with was a stained seat that two different detailers tried to get out without any success. I had a detailer on another site tell me to get some LA's Totally Awesome cleaner from Dollar General and to test it on an area not easily seen. If it worked on that area it would be fine on the seat cushion. I can say that for a jug of cleaner from the dollar store it did a fantastic job and lived up to its name. Now I keep a jug in the garage all the time.
  5. When a PO rewired my previous 48 Plymouth in the conversion to a 12 volt system they simply twisted the ends of wires together then wrapped it with electrical tape. If they needed to tap into a wire mid run they just scraped off the insulation, wrapped the end of the new wire around it and you guessed it wrapped it with electrical tape. I drove it as a daily driver for about a year before I discovered this during a swap from the 218 to a 230.
  6. I mounted my kickdown switch to the lower edge of the dash through a hole that was already there. When I wanted out of OD just reached under and pushed the button. Always thought flooring it to kick out of OD with the stock setup was a bit odd.
  7. I also ran a stock 6V starter with 12V conversion for about 4-5 years with no problems.
  8. Here is a 37 Plymouth frame diagram. Hope this helps.
  9. This is a photoshop of my previous 48 that a guy on the HAMB did. Slight chop and lowered with skirts.
  10. Love my crank out windshield. Gives a nice breeze. Bit too much noise out on the highway, but great when driving around town.
  11. Cool old photo I found on another site. P15 Police Cars.
  12. Thought a thread of known upcoming shows, cruises and events would be good to share. Here is one that is happening in Johnson Creek, WI on May 18th. There will also be sister events in NW Arkansas on June 8th / Springfield, MO on June 20 / Combined Oklahoma City and Dallas on Sept 28th / St Louis on Oct 12th. The Hot Rod Hundred is designed to bring back something that has been missing for the last few decades…..driving. The Hot Rod Hundred will be a drive that is off of the beaten path of everyday travel, for most folks. We'll drive on two lane state highways, cruise through some small towns, and have some rest stops along the way, so we can admire each other's cars and regroup. You are guaranteed a route that is 100 miles or greater. You can click the link to sign up.
  13. Nice looking truck. I really like your part of the world and will likely be visiting Curitiba / Porto Alegre in April for work.
  14. Wrong again. Your exact quote was "Multiple carbs indeed increase power, but only at steady high speed. The tradeoff is deteriorated performance at low speed and poor acceleration." Drag racing is the ultimate acceleration test of a vehicle. It starts from a dead stop and accelerates for a 1/4 mile. Yes the RPMs are brought up prior to launch, but it is in no way "steady high speed" it is full on acceleration.  Below is just a partial list of the normal factory equipped domestic cars that have had multiple carbs not to mention foreign cars. The following is a listing of multiple carburetor manifolds used by USA manufacturers as original equipment compiled by The Carburetor Shop. We believe all information presented to be correct, however, the listing is not complete. We would welcome documented additions and/or corrections.

  15. Again a very broad brush you are painting with. If the original carb was at or close to the upper end of the capacity of the engine then yes the issues you point to could indeed occur with an additional carb added to the mix. However if the opposite is true and the original carb is at or near the bottom of the capacity of the engine a second carb as long as the combined do not exceed the capacity will absolutely increase performance and can and did in my case increase fuel economy. This is especially true if you help open the breathing on the exhaust side. Look at all the production vehicles (cars, bikes, planes etc) that well paid and very educated engineers have designed with multiple carbs. Were these engines only efficient at high speeds and show poor acceleration? Do all those drag cars with multiple carbs exhibit poor acceleration?
