  1. ? about wheel trim rings.

    Casper, looking at the tape, I would say if your valve stem is closer than 2-1/8" from the inside of your rim and there are no reliefs on the trim rings then they won't fit.
  2. Shifter cable question

    I didn't realize they ever put a 360 and 727 combo in a Duster. Are you sure it's not a 904LA?
  3. You might also reach out to Tim Kingsbury or Mopar Montana here on this forum. One other source might be allpar.com.
  4. Elwood, you might also post this on the AACA forum also if you haven't already. Someone maybe able to help over there also.
  5. The actual blue prints would be more than just one drawing. You would have multiple individual prints, multiple assembly and sub-assembly prints plus a final assembly print that could also be several pages with different views and a bill of materials. What is it you actually want and for what purpose? Answering the first part of this question you may be able to find with an internet search, answering the second part would be of interest to those that might be willing to help.
  6. The Venerable Slant 6 vs Our Beloved Flathead 6s

    55 FARGO, that video of /6 versus Hellcat was taken just down the road from me. Do you know who the participants are and where they're from?
  7. F-headed Mopar sixes

    We have one of those tumble steel bead blasters in the shop at work. Gotta be careful what you put in there they are powerful.
  8. 51 coronet d42 dash refinishing?

    cadillackid1955 that looks to be a leather grain and wldavis3 looks to be sepele woodgrain in a vertical pattern. As stated above go to this website http://www.woodgraining .com it wiil show you examples of the techniques used plus you can purchase supplies to recreate the patterns yourself.
  9. any thing that can go wrong will

    Murphy is always lurking in the shadows and will follow you around silently like a cat on the prowl then pounce on you when you least expect it. He is nobody's friend.
  10. galvanic corrosion / stainless steel washers ??

    So what are the suggested gaskets and fasteners for an aluminum head and intake on the flat head sixes?
  11. No Idle, etc

    Do you still have vacuum wipers? That is another possible source of leakage.
  12. If you are using fuel with ethanol in it you will probably have to have a slightly lower float setting. Probably a 1/16" difference at most. If the car sat with this ethanol enriched fuel for more than 2-3 months you may have to clean out the carburetor as it tends to gum up pretty quickly.
  13. Stalls and hesitates when choke is open

    Start with the basics. With engine idling turn the idle mixture screw in until it starts to stall. If it doesn't stall when completely screwed in it most likely is a vacuum leak. If i starts to stall back it out while counting the turns to see when it starts to stall. Split the difference and turn back in, for example if it's three turns between in and out then turn 1-1/2 turns. Check the rubber fuel line near the tank it may look good on the outside but be collapsing on the inside. Put a clear fuel filter inline to see if it is pulling junk from the tank. Take the top off the carb and inspect for sediment in the bowl. If the car sat for a long time clean the carb and fuel pump. Good luck and keep us informed on the progress.
  14. Stalls and hesitates when choke is open

    Too many variables and not enough information. Condition of carburetor and fuel system? When was the last time it ran correctly? And so on so forth.
  15. Woodgrain Thoughts

    Nice Job belvedere666.
