    '52 Plymouth mystery piece???

    Agree re the aftermarket power brake booster...here in oz there was a brand, Pattons Brake Replacements or PBR who made a number of remote boosters that were a popular fitment to both drum & disc brake systems in the 1950's thru to the 1970's....the VH40 and VH44 were two that come to mind and were slightly smaller and more compact than that Hydrovac but seem to be the same principle.............andyd

    Running boards for a 1941 Dodge D19 Luxury Liner

    No worries.......lol..........btw if you ever come across a US passenger side NOS running board let me know........I bought a NOS 1941 Plymouth US drivers side running board a few years ago for my Oz 1940 Dodge.......the original rubber was lifting off and as the Oz cars were Plymouth based and I knew that 40-41 had the same shaped running board just different rubber pattern I bought it as it was very cheap, still in its original cardboard box.........funny thing is when I tell people that its a 41 Plymouth running board they say......."don't people see that they are different on each side"......my answer is that as you cannot see both at the same time, who cares...........lol...........so any NOS 1940 or 1941 Plymouth US drivers side running board would be greatly accepted...........lol...........heres a pic...........the 2nd pic with the vinyl top still on the cars roof shows the old running board..............andyd

    1951 Meadowbrook 318 conversion advise

    So, let me guess..........mopar is just a passing fad to you...........lol...........Welcome aboard from Oz........, I was going to mention that you may find that the sump maybe able to be swapped, front to back.......at least thats what I did when I built my 1940 Dodge with the 318 Poly back in 1973, had to add and modify the sump rear anyway so I did this as I also have the engine mounted quite low in the frame and am using a rack & pinion..........anyway looks like you are getting the hang of the swap............regards, Andy Douglas.

    SP15C....so is your car and the others you've had been TJ Richards bodies?, I thought the long fenders, etc indicated an imported body or car.......andyd

    Mopars in Oz

    Hey...........fellas, mates, guys, cobbers, blokes, galahs, friends...........lol...........all good..........I answer to many and most things................andyd. ............SP15C......you've reminded me of a mates 1948 DeSoto over 40 yrs ago, this was the 1st Fluid Drive car I had seen and you're right....it was the same green as that one at the run, I remember that it was supposedly an import also and that as distinct from the Oz assembled 1946-48 Dodge,Plymouth and DeSotos which had the short front fenders, 2 piece rear windows and exposed front door hinges, Peters DeSoto had the fenders going into the doors and the other features that this Armidale car had..............wonder if its the same one.....or maybe your DeSoto is............the guy that owned it was Peter Buckingham, he lived in Padstow in Sydney, this was around the early to late 1970's, I haven't seen Peter since the 1980's..........lol............Andy Douglas..

    Please help me find where to buy or provide  your thoughts on the correct replacement of Special Hydraulic fluid ( some one suggests, Universal Hydraulic #134 from Tractors Supply, AW32, MoPar#10w, ISO32) for the FLUID COUPLING and the quantity required  to  fill.

     

    Thank you

    Off the top of my head the worlds RHD countries include Australia, New Zealand, United Kingdom, Ireland, South Africa, Japan, New Guinea and various islands in the Pacific...Sweden was till the mid 60's I think then swapped to LHD...............andyd

    Chrysler New Yorker 54 Transmission and Power Steering Oil

    Alan........I have an Oz 1962 Chrysler Royal cast iron torqueflite in my 1940 Dodge, its been there since I installed it and the corresponding 318 polysphere V8 in 1973 and I have used Dextron 2 or 3 Auto trans fluid since then without any issue, so in your car I would ONLY use Detron III or an Automatic Transmission Fluid that specifically states that it is the EQUIVALENT TO DEXTRON III................now I'm not sure but does your car have external transmission coolant lines going to a trans cooler, lower radiator tank or is it aircooled as I understand some of the Powerflite transmissions were?...........if it does have external lines, a seperate trans cooler would be a worthwhile addition if it does not have one, also you can get an Auto trans FILTER, which looks like a fuel filter but is specifically to be installed in the external trans lines and will help to add some life to the transmission...............I normally get Dextron III in 4 or 5 litre containers, its much cheaper that way and at least here in Australia is commonly available at any good spare parts store............anyway.........got any more pics of the car?...........btw I assume the PS pump is one that attaches at the rear of the generator............andyd.

    A bunch a new P15's

    Tom............would be nice to think thats its the only RHD 2dr imported into Oz but methinks that if it is RHD, the only reason would be that its a US Post Office vehicle..........lol...................andyd in Oz

    Mopars in Oz

    Took these pics of various Mopars at the New England Rod & Custom Clubs Smoke & Iron Rod Run over the 1st/2nd December.......based in the city of Armidale in New South Wales this area is known as the New England area and is about 3hrs drive from my town of Grafton.......anyway these were a few of the mopars I found there, the channeled 34 Coupe runs a small block mopar, that front end is from a Peugeot, the 37 Plymouth Coupe is an ex US car, this body style was never sold in Oz, the 48 Plymouth 2 dr is also an ex USA car, it has late model GM Holden front suspension and Holden V8 and was painted by the owner, not sure what is in the Oz sourced 1949 Plymouth with the chopped top, the black chopped top pickup I am unsure whether its a Fargo or Dodge, from memory it had a small block, the red 1946 Plymouth Coupe was an ex USA car complete with about a heap of Bonneville and a Montana Dodge Boys decals on the drivers side rear window, it ran a twin carbed 230 and the final pic a 46-48 DeSoto was a strange one, it was RHD but supposedly an import tho it may have been an original 1948 import, it was a Fluid Drive car, lowered but otherwise a stocker..............Andy Douglas

    Chrysler New Yorker 54 Transmission and Power Steering Oil

    Lino, welcome aboard from Oz........as Plymouthy says there are manuals on ebay regularly........where exactly are you?..............just a guess but are you in the USA?......also I assume your car is a 331 Hemi and Powerflite 2 speed auto............my understanding is that the Powerflite gearbox used a Dextron, Type A type of trans fluid same as the later Torqueflites and I also think this is what is used in the power steering reservoir.......BUT I am no expert, have looked in a couple of books I have, a Motors and a Glenns manuals............if possible can you give some more info regarding your car which I might add, looks VERY NICE...........Andy Douglas

    Clunk from the right rear

    The rear spring bushings are generally much easier than the front of the rear spring bushes to change........the rear ones should be a rubber bush pushed in from each side of the spring eye and chassis eye with the fixed plate/bolt inserted then the rubber bushes and plate and nuts to hold it all together...........the front rear spring "bush" can be much harder to replace as its a press in fit into the spring eye, thats assuming it doesn't decide not to come out, I have had to make up a press arrangement to push the old bush out, the installation of a new bush is generally easier but in doing all this you have to support the spring somehow otherwise it springs back into its shorter self............lol.........my oz 2 cents worth............andyd
