  1. Electric cooling fans

    While thermostat control is fine, I find it real simple to switch it on and off myself. Stop and go in town driving....I leave the fan on. Get rolling and off it goes. Yes I might have to be watching my temp gage and making a motion to operate the switch but it really is simple. When SWMBO takes the car she knows to also watch the gage....at least she says she does
  2. Electric cooling fans

    I like electric fans, use them on other cars and I want one now on the Plymouth. I liked the Engine Masters test. Once you are rolling with some speed a mechanical fan really isn't needed in my part of the world.
  3. Age Demographics Please Take The Poll...

    Bought my 52 when I turned 40, to add to my mustang and Ford truck. Now I am 51.
  4. New Tachometer

    I like a tach for highway running, not for when to shift. I barely look at it in traffic. Mine was an eBay purchase, with the sending unit. http://www.williamsons.com/. These guys were great to deal with in converting it to electronic internals with no sending unit...6 volt positive ground.
  5. New Tachometer

  6. Installing new rubber boot on trunion driveshaft

    Good heavens what a job. When I did mine I went all out, pin pressed out, new boot, pin and assembly. I struggled to do it myself with a big press but I did it. This guy is pretty good.
  7. Ball and Trunnions: removing trunnions

    When I did mine I remember the press was creaking. Trying to think if I did anything different. Did not try heat.
  8. Trunnion Joint Grease

    Can there be such a thing as too much grease....I filled mine a plenty.
  9. Maybe need some heat...carb issue

    ACCELERATOR PUMP !! No squirty squirty, not sure why yet but the float level might be too low....raised it tonight and it started flooding out. There is a happy medium there I just need to find it. This is a new carb kit from a reputable supplier. The accel plunger is pliable and seems very serviceable, resistance when pushed down and does squirt when I push manually on the plunger with the carb top off. Might be a spring or linkage issue but at least I know I need to get this fixed for sure...I'm sure this is the problem.
  10. Maybe need some heat...carb issue

    Well got some under the hood time after work after supper on the lake. Timing rechecked....it idles best at 4*, so no change there. All connections checked for torque, nothing loose. With it running I sprayed WD40 on carb base, intake gaskets and vacuum line.....anywhere there could be a leak and there was no change to rpm. Richened the squirt on accel pump but that didn't seem to change the snag either. Plugs were a shade whiter than I thought they should be. This is the same carb the engine has always had and before the rebuild it ran fine. Just with a gasket kit installed and a cleaning. Any more ideas ?
  11. Tinkering with the 52 Plymouth now, it is sort of on the road. Awaiting a front end alignment still and the overdrive wired up. Anyway....this old heap has a dual header on it.....yeah I can't leave well enough alone . Starts and idles fine, down the road it goes fine. Problem is the pulling away from a stop. It wants to stall out. Pull the manual choke on and it will idle away from that stop just fine. Without the choke you have to pump it and ride the clutch out...keeping revs up.Am I loosing carb or intake heat with this header ?Going to richen the accelerator pump squirt to max again. It was full rich and to test a fix I leaned it one hole.Fully warmed up, driving around town for 30 minutes still the same snag.Thought about a heat pipe from header to the base of carb.Mrs ain't too impressed so far
  12. Fuel and headers!

    I rerouted my fuel line away from the exhaust. I thought about wrapping the close section but have not and so far haven't had an issue.
  13. This Evening's Cruise...With Running Updates

    Nice looking car.

    Dragging this post up from way back. So if the cap faces the firewall and the air past it vents like a venturi is the road draft tube the air inlet ? I thought the air went in the fill cap, through the engine and out the draft tube. I ask now because the car is now just getting back on the road.
  15. Oil pressure fluctuating....

    Fede....if the oil level is too high the rotating parts will impact the oil and will cause foaming. Might lead to more oil out the breather pipe. If it is high but not touching the rotating parts I see no issues.
