  1. Fuel Sending Unit help

    I was told that the Dodge D24 used a 1 wire sending unit and the P15 Plymouth used the 2 wire sending unit.
  2. help me find sbc swap into 50 plymouth links

    It's his car and he can build it however he wants. As far as helpful information, I think the best was sending him to Butch's website ( a supplier who not only advertises on this site but also sells mounts for the SBC install). As far as saving an old Mopar goes, anytime you keep an old car running regardless of motor choice you have saved it from the crusher. In the 50's and 60's guys were putting Cadillac, Buick and Oldsmobile engines and Hemi's in anything as long as it made the car go faster and looked cool. I remember when people were putting big block Chevy's in early GTO's. I couldn't believe they were doing that. I've been on this forum almost 20 years and most times I say nothing because a question has been answered before I see it. The purpose of this forum is to share information. Bottom line in my opinion is if you can't give a constructive answer, don't answer at all.
  3. V8 conversion for my 47 P15 sedan

    I've never been a fan of Camaro or Nova sub frame swaps. They seem to be too wide and the front wheels are positioned too far out of the fenders. Looks odd to me. I've heard another popular front frame swap is the Chevy S10.
  4. P15/explorer park brake problem

    Maybe this would help. Made by Lokar.
  5. 1951 Suburban

  6. Vacuum wiper conversion??

    I converted my 47 Plymouth to electric wipers. I got the kit from Newport Engineering. Easy to install but it won't clear the stock radio.
  7. The Lowered Stance Picture and Build Thread

    I have a 2 Dr Sedan also. What kind of wheels are those? Any other information on your car?
  8. Lowered the '41 today.

    Looks good. I like it.
  9. Radiator swap question re P15

    You can paint an aluminum radiator black, but it requires a special radiator paint sold by Eastwood and probably others. Something to do with heat transfer being a problem with regular paint.
  10. First Experience With Scarebird

    I recently ordered a Wilwood Master Cylinder Mount Bracket from Scarebird. This is my first time dealing with them. Part was ordered a week and a half ago and paid through PayPal. Five days later I'm looking for my part to arrive in the mail, instead I receive an email from Scarebird stating that they are moving and I won't have my bracket until early September. I'm not very happy about this. There was nothing on their website indicating that there would be shipping delays because they are moving. After searching the internet I can't find the bracket anywhere else. I'm not impressed.
  11. My son has started our Scarebird conversation

    Any updates? Are you happy with the end results?
  12. Discontinued the loaning of my Miller Tools

    I agree with the others. It's unfortunate this happened and now others suffer as a result. There are some novice mechanics out there and they often tackle jobs beyond their skill levels. Just look at your neighborhood Craigslist at all of the unfinished project cars. A couple of times I have seen these tools come up for sale but the cost has prevented me from buying them. I mean, how many times do you expect to replace control bushings on a 70 year old car. My guess is once. I'm surprised no one has come up with a low cost alternative for these tools.
  13. My son has started our Scarebird conversation

    I have used the Mity-Vac myself, but not the same way as you are. I open the bleeder, pump the Mity-Vac until I get a clear stream without bubbles, close the bleeder and move on to the next wheel.
  14. Tom Langdon Closing Shop

    I just checked out his website. It's still up and running.
  15. And so it begins

    I like the Desoto coupe.
