  1. Manuals do not tell you how to rebuild.
  2. It is rocket science. You would not believe the shabby work that comes through our doors from other machine shops. Just saying. We have shops that grind cranks and they do not clean the oil galleys, that is one little example. Rods installed wrong. Cam bearings installed wrong. Piston ring gaps and side clearance not set to specs. Bores not parallel or decks ground at an angle. I could go on and on. STOP!!
  3. That would be great.
  4. Would like to see paper work. Customer in LA CA just spent 15k for a complete rebuild for his 38 Dodge pickup.
  5. My partner and I rebuild engines and know prices. Would like to see paper work to compare notes.
  6. Can you show us the paper work?
  7. They do not have a fire hydrant within a mile, you're not going to have an ample plumbing supply for a sprinkler system. We have picked up cars from this establishment. How sad and devastating this fire is. Had a customer call us from Holland this morning calling for parts for a 1934 Dodge 4 dr convertible. I asked what happened? He said a private collector with 50 cars lost all in a fire. His 75-year-old dad bought the car to bring it back to life.
  8. Never had a OD in a 30s Plymouth unless it was exported.
  9. Just found the book on the Dodge in the UK. 1937 Dodge had the OD claiming that it will do 80 MPH. Also showed a 38 Dodge with a straight 8. Post #1 is an OD trans for a 37, not 36.
  10. Thank you.
  11. I have a couple of customers looking. Can you send me the link, please. Thanks, Dave
  12. That is a great looking firewall. More pictures, please. Here is a 32 Dodge DL that a guy is doing a nut and bolt. http://forums.aaca.org/topic/213186-the-ressurection-of-daphne-a-1932-dl/?page=55#comment-1615727 .
  13. This is not the truck that Charlie restored. This is in the Henry Ford Museum in Dearborn MI. His is in the Chrysler museum Auburn Hills MI.
