  1. Your photos look very vintage and remind me of this guys work (models with full size backgrounds). https://www.flickr.com/photos/24796741@N05/page1
  2. I had louvers punched in my hood this summer and it really made a difference with the heat soak issue. I positioned them so they don't interfere with the cowl vent.
  3. Your truck is looking really cool, love all the mods you're doing!
  4. Here is the same part at Oreillys. https://www.oreillyauto.com/detail/b/murray-climate-control-5217/lighting---electrical-16777/motors---actuators-25143/blower-motor-12457/0da7cd2eedaa/murray-climate-control-blower-motor/pm354/4781897/1970/ford/ltd?q=Pm354&pos=0
  5. Here is a link to ID the engine, not sure it will work for Fargo but worth a try. The engine number is above the generator just below the head on a milled flat. Hope it helps. http://www.t137.com/registry/help/otherengines/otherengines.php
  6. My 6v starter has been on 12v for 3 years no problemo.
  7. This should help you decipher the info you have. http://www.t137.com/registry/help/otherengines/otherengines.php
  8. Those head bolts should have some sort of thread sealer on them as most go into the water jacket.
  9. This might be a good place to start. http://www.t137.com/registry/help/otherengines/otherengines.php
  10. Hey Michael, how about some photos of your project.
  11. Some have just ground the teeth off the gear and used it like that.
  12. Here is a link to Oreillys auto parts, shouldn't be that hard. https://www.oreillyauto.com/shop/b/gaskets-25077/engine-25078/gasket-kits-25088/valve-cover-gasket-set-12130/941589ddd08a/1953/dodge/b-4?q=valve+cover+gasket+set

  15. 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.
  16. Here is a source that I and others have used with good results. https://www.championradiators.com/Plymouth_car_radiators_1941-1952
  17. Here's some info. http://www.t137.com/registry/help/otherengines/otherengines.php
  18. Just do the redneck rain dance.........wash your truck!
  19. 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.
  20. 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
  21. I've used this stuff, available at HD.
  22. Would it make any difference to run the pcv output to the air cleaner? Seems like that eliminates any negative effect on engine vacuum.
  23. The button on top of the starter is also adjustable by screwing it in or out as to when it completes the circuit.
