    Brass plugs are better in the long run especially the hidden ones at the front and rear of the block. I don't have the Dorman part number handy.

    Received approval for 1947 plate!!

    I have YOM plate on my truck. The truck is a '53 and the plate is '52 as AZ only issued even year plates back then and a corner tag was bolted on the plate for odd years. Here you can go online and check if the plate is currently in use before you go to MVD to register it.

    There is a freeze plug ( maybe 2 stacked ) covered by the bellhousing and also a smaller one behind the camshaft.

    My gauge flutters just like that at 19" and the engine has 62k original miles on it.

    Hood / top of the Radiator

    Is there a photo of the parts on the B3, B4 showing the support piece?

    Hood / top of the Radiator

    My B4B looks just like the photo. Is the support piece the same in the B3, B4 trucks?

    The shop manual lists the radiator cap as non-pressurized until you get into the really large trucks. In actuality the original cap is set up to handle 4 1/2 lbs. I'm running a Stant 4 lb. cap with an aluminum radiator.

    Me and the Meadowbrook

    Mine also, after warming up and sitting for longer than 5 to 7 minutes it will just crank. So I floor it and within a few seconds it fires up, rev it a little and good to go!

    I bought another old dodge !

    I've never heard that pos vs neg ground was more or less efficient.
