    1955 First vs Second Series Windows?

    I had a shop make replacement side and rear glass with tempered ( 6mm evergreen ) that is stronger than laminated which is required for windshields. They also actually had the paper patterns for the glass.
  2. Here is a link to a replacement carb that looks very similar to our B&B carbs and perhaps someone on the forum is familiar with.https://daytonaparts.com/m/replacement_carburetor_chevy.html

    Anybody got a p/n 12v truck master heater motor

    I am unable to find the part # for the motor I bought for my heater which is not a mopar truck unit but an unknown aftermarket manufacturer. It was simply a matter of looking for a replacement with the same dimensions and making it work. I also found a replacement heater core that worked with a little modification.

    Oil Leak from Filter when hot

    Perhaps it is leaking from where the bolt goes through the lid also.

    P15 Windshield Replacement

    I used Steele on my '53 and it was an excellent fit. If the old gasket is still flexible I would remove it in one piece otherwise cut it and remove it that way. Here is a video. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=QvcJ_lU_VpQ

    P15 Windshield Replacement

    Windshield has to be laminated glass. Gently remove any piece covering a joint in the trim at the center or corners and then remove the longer strips. There is a channel in the rubber that holds the stainless in place. The cord you use should be about 1/4" and make sure and file off any snags on the pinch weld that will damage the new gasket.

    Maximum Drop

    The dropped tie rod ends I used were from Speedway ( iirc) and are the same size taper as the stock ones they replaced.

    Maximum Drop

    I'm not sure what you mean by knuckle inserts, if you are talking about the tapered holes drilled in the steering arms I only drilled through them halfway from the underside so a cross view of those holes would be an hourglass shape.

    Intake + Exhaust manifold removal

    I'm not sure about your application but on mine in addition to the studs there are 2 long bolts between the 2,3 and 4,5 exhaust ports lower side.
