  1. Good information to have and keep. I will put this in my maintenance folder for future info. Thanks
  2. Filled the radiator, started the engine, and the plug stayed in place and did not leak. Beginners luck I would say.
  3. It feels tight, I cannot move it now. I may as well fill the block now, instead of putting it off and dreading the results.
  4. Thanks for the link. I have dimpled the replaced one. I will let it set overnight before refilling the block. Will keep my fingers crossed.
  5. I don't know how much space there is. It went in very easy. I have not tried to dimple it yet. I thought they had to be forced in.
  6. 1941 Plymouth PT 125. Today the front top freeze plug popped out losing all the fluid. The engine was overhauled last year and has only a few hours at idle on it. I purchased a new 1 5/8 disc at NAPA. It seems too small for the hole. It goes in without any force. The new disc also seems thinner than the one that came out. Do they make and oversize freeze plug? Anybody have an idea?
  7. I don't think so. Look for a recess in the lid, in which the gasket would fit and cover the top of the canister.
  8. I use the NAPA 1010 filter, but use the rubber gasket from NAPA 1071. It fits perfectly but the filter is too short. .
  9. On my 1941 Plymouth truck I used the corvette type MC from Speedway. Used 3/8 " plate. Worked with original brake pushrod. Pictures attached.
  10. My truck uses a NAPA 1010 and I use the gasket that comes with the NAPA 1071. The gasket is correct size but the filter is too short. John PT-125 Indy
  11. Tod stated: Now attach the plug wires in counterclockwise order. Manuals all show the wires attached in a clockwise direction. Am i CONFUSED?
  12. I am getting ready to paint my 1941 Plymouth truck PT-125. When purchased it was painted safety yellow. The build sheet shows 4 as the color. Does anyone know what color that would be? John Indpls Pt-125
