  1. 1947 Plymouth starter..

    I think that the two starters use different solenoids. I'm not sure of the other differences within the starter itself.
  2. Sorry to Hear Don Coatney isnt well.

    Very sorry to hear. Your posts are very informative.
  3. http://www.plymouthbulletin.com/regions.htm I'd contact the Lone Star Region of the club. They list contact info on there. Maybe they'd be able to get word out.
  4. My understanding was "SP15" for an engine number means that it was a P15 engine used in a foreign DeSoto. That DeSoto would have been a rebadged Plymouth.
  5. I have a buddy looking for one of those u-joints for his American P15. I guess some of them came with them too? Do you have any idea what the GM part number is for those u-joints?
  6. Fun discussion regarding 1948 Chrysler New Yorker

    Didn't get V8 until '51 I believe.
  7. Andy Bernbaum heat riser kit issues

    I'm confused about these springs. I was curious reading this thread so I tried it on my own, looking for enlightenment. When I held a light under mine with pliers holding the inside of the coil, the outer part of the coil rotated. The inside looked like it tensed up a bit, but the outer portion looked like it was "expanding" and rotating correctly. Is this the way that they're suppose to work? The one I tested is NOS as far as I know. Would love to know as my heat riser had no spring in it when I bought the car.
  8. 47 TOWN AND COUNTRY Woody

    Don't worry, after $150,000 invested, you can always sell it for a loss that being said, I'd love to have it lol.
  9. Non pressure radiator cap

    I think that pre 1949 were all non-pressurized caps, though. '49 and up were pressurized I do believe.
  10. I had to remove mine as an assembly. I undid the pedal pads, undid the springs and clutch linkage, and removed the pedals and master cylinder through the floor of the car. I then removed the c-clips, took off the pedal linkage, and pressed out the pin. I'm not sure that it's the only way, but it was the easiest way for me.
  11. All the gaskets you need plus more

    My thoughts are the first set shows pistons, rings, bearings, etc where as the second kit doesn't. A bit of an apple2orange comparison I also don't believe most of the after market gasket sets come with the rear main seals. A lot of them come with the chain case front seal, though.
  12. Anyone else going to Rhinebeck in May?

    Why would they make you stay on the grounds? I'm just asking to figure out how many fences I might have to jump.
  13. Master cylinder rod removal

    I'm sorry if I was unclear. I need to remove it to replace the master cylinder. The master cylinder on the car is absolute garbage.
  14. Master cylinder rod removal

    I didn't see a nut/bolt on it? I just saw a cotter pin and c-clip. It is definitely pressed in there. The part that I was referring to is called the clutch pedal shaft in the parts book and is part number 871975. I'm assuming that it is just pressed in and I just need to machine press it out.
  15. Master cylinder rod removal

    Hey there folks, I've been slowly combing through this vehicle. I can only put in a few hours every week, so what I can do is limited. Anyway, I'm at the point of replacing the master cylinder, and I can't seem to find any reference on removing the rod. The rod I'm referring to is that one that runs through the front of the master cylinder between the clutch and brake linkage. Do I need to have this pressed out of my old one and into a new one? Or is there a way that I can do it without a press. Thanks for any help.
