    Head bolt questions

    You might have to heat up around the broken stud. Another trick is drip some melted wax around the broken stud.

    Who Is Actually Driving Their Vintage Mopars?

    I am back driving mine after a 9 year engine rebuild, overdrive install and disc brake conversion. Have tooled around town a bit this spring but this past week it was 4 hours at highway speeds to the city....and 4 hours back at highway speeds. Kill ed a few bugs : ) ........and have some bugs to still work out. https://photos.app.goo.gl/KKAnB9zpfhKhLfGN6

    My Favourite At The Show...T&C

    I didnt like to open my hood until it was detailed and cleaned a little better than the 40years of grime. Now I usually open my hood, even just half way and if anyone is interested I will open all the way. My one car isn’t that nice under hood but now my Plymouth......she is shiny. As for bone stock verses “custom”, I drive my cars and stock brakes and 98 horsepower engines don’t blend well with modern traffic at least in larger centres. I can understand upgrading these components.

    Overdrive cable bracket....

    I am needing a picture of the bracket for the OD push pull cable at the lever end. If someone could snap a quick pic. I went through the search going back to 2008...lots of overwhelming information and questions about the cable but nothing on how it mounts to the overdrive unit. I have an idea but why reinvent the wheel. Thanks.

    cardboard heater duct Cranbrook 1953

    Here it is installed. Fit is not bad. I guess it’s different from the $100 plastic one on eBay. The inside angles are all sealed with a 2 part flexible sealant, PRC is the product; aviation sealant. https://photos.app.goo.gl/xXlnsVAf0yX37IWp2

    ECI dual reservoir master cylinder?

    I installed an ECI kit and bracket, along with disc conversion.....but the master cylinder and bracket were no problem to install. Made hole in floor bigger. Had to grind a little off the mounting bracket somewhere but I can’t remember why.

    You just can't trust anybody on eBay these days

    Real nice looking car. In regards to people being honest about selling stuff I fully agree. Ebay deals are mostly a distance thing, if the seller accurately describes the product you can bid accordingly. Understandably being honest doesn’t bring him big dollars and may the flees of a thousand camels infest his bedding for being a dishonest dude. Agree too that it’s always best when spending substantial money to inspect the item but eBay covers a big piece of ground...not always possible. I have had a friend in the location check out the potential purchase, tough sometimes with the shortness of bid time. ‘‘Twas a gamble and you didn’t win big time but you have a pretty cool car that is repairable.

    cardboard heater duct Cranbrook 1953

    I have a duct started for my 52. This might be my first version.....I might end up making adjustments as the angles are making me think. 2024 .032" aluminum.

    Very true 55 Fargo, the more populated areas I would avoid. 55 (100K) is all I would push it to.

    Camping

    I have a 1200 lb 13 foot Boler that we tow with our 218. I have now done a disc brake conversion but prior we were drums all around, 2 lane hwys, not a performance demon but we tooled along at the posted speeds. I was attentive to my stopping distances with drums. Can't say yet with the disc improvement. Engine cooling was no troubles. I had a leaky rear seal so the clutched slipped a couple times but that should be fixed now too. My bigger concern was having a good hitch welded together that bolted to the car. 2" receiver.i found a skilled welderthta did one up for me in an afternoon for $200. I need to find pictures.....

    '50 Plymouth brakes adjust or upgrade?

    When kept in adjustment drum brakes do okay. My thought is though why, when it isn't too much to upgrade to a disc front system. Not so much that your car is so bad it's that all the other cars on the road will have better braking capabilities, they might out brake you.

    Battery not charging

    With car running check your voltage at the battery. At idle it won't be much over 12 volts, more likely closer to 11 volts. Rev the engine up 1200 or more and the voltage should be over 12 volts. If not check your connections for security and cleanliness. Voltage regulator of the original can be adjusted with an adjustment screw. Ensure generator belt is tensioned correctly. Might need to "flash" the generator too if there is no output....meaning revving it up and the voltage stays at 12 or less.

    1953 Chrysler Brakes Rebuild Thread

    Great little job to do Keith. You will notice a big difference with braking after its back together. Even just a fresh fluid flush I noticed a firmer feel. Brake fluid is hydroscopic.....absorbs moisture. I would bet your current brake system is many years old, 2 to 3 years is a short interval but if you have the time it wouldn't hurt.
