  1. Those older models had trouble starting, would kick back too besides leaving a mark when parked. That said you have to run what you got till you can upgrade.

    Wide-Whitewall Radial Tire Choices

    Just a note on alignment. Getting it back to factory specs may create more of a problem since those specs were made for Bias tires and were likely using settings with positive camber and negative castor in many cases. Radial tires are a different animal. I use the specs below for radials on my mopars. Castor makes a big difference in handling. If you have a good alignment guy he probably does this for you. Driving style Camber Caster Toe-in Sunday Cruising -0.25° +1.5° 1/16" to 1/8" Daily Driver / Street -0.5° +2.5° 1/16" to 1/8"

    Exciting 1933 Dodge project!

    I am waiting to see the front suspension but everything so far looks fantastic. I found that the old jeeps used front leafs that were a pretty close match when I was looking for replacements to use on the front of my 34 PD. Found them new and they were very reasonable.

    That straight 6 will run smooth like a sewing machine, suggest you give it a try before you make the leap. Just my thoughts if you haven't tried it yet. Welcome to the board and good luck.

    I may have shot myself in the foot!!

    I agree with what has already been said. I will just add that you can measure the RJ18yc6 plugs as bent to give you the max depth of protrusion for plugs as you look for a new plug or shim combo. Just make sure to add some buffer margin.

    I have a problem with carburation and/or fuel delivery

    Glad you got it worked out and running great again.

    I have a problem with carburation and/or fuel delivery

    Like others mentioned check your gas lines and also check your vacuum line to make sure it is tight and no leaks.

    I have a problem with carburation and/or fuel delivery

    My first check would be the fuel filter/s. Fuel pumps are low pressure and it doesn't take much restriction in the filters to starve your carbs as you move up in the Rs. Sounds like once you get to cruz speed and back off things settle down. I had a similar issue and pulled one of the glass inline filters off mine, noticed right away when I blew through it ( you should have no restriction) and cleaned it out. That solved my issue.
  9. There is a dodge forum on yahoo for the 39-47 trucks that have some good technical info on this. The attached article is one I had pulled previously for myself _Converting Axels to High Speed.doc

    Optima 6v battery

    Ed, I checked some of the online outfits where I purchase motorcycle batteries from but no luck. I got my last Optima on the bay for $114 about 18 months ago. I did see the same prices as you were finding but noticed advanced auto was offering 20% off which would get you down $37 bucks. Amazing how much they went up but they do pack the power. Good Luck

    Who Is Actually Driving Their Vintage Mopars?

    Nice cars all of them. I am partial to the 33-34 Plymouths and drive an old coupe regularly. That 30 Desoto is special. Desoto had a way to make a car look like it was moving fast when it was just sitting still.

    Edgy heads being poured now

    In 2015 Earl quoted me "Heads are $850 plus S&H. I require a $400 deposit to order a casting from the foundry. Delivery is 12-16 weeks after I receive your deposit" The head is some nice bling but I just did not see throwing $1250 at the time for a marginal improvement in performance over a shaved iron head. Also I am not driving any show cars

    Engine Cutting Out At High Speed

    Fuel filter or pump. It doesn't take much restriction to cause a fuel starving problem like your describing. I run a 6v electric and had a similar issue. Replacing the filter fixed the problem.
