  10. What phone do you have and does it use minutes when operating the speedo? Could a phone be used only for the gps speedo and not have service? My speedo works in my truck but is way off and I want a reliable backup.
  11. Here is a source that I and others have used with good results. https://www.championradiators.com/Plymouth_car_radiators_1941-1952

  14. When you look down the carb and press the throttle do you see a spray of fuel? That would show the accelerator pump is working.
  15. My B4B has the short side bed and using the search function and viewing some PDFs I am unable to find the correct dimensions for the bed boards. I currently have a sheet of plywood in the bed. It is 76" long and should have 8 boards. Two outer boards 7" wide and six inner boards 5 1/4" wide? Anyone have the factory numbers? Thanks
