    48 Plymouth flathead starting problems

    I would NOT use Champion plugs if they were free, and payed me to put them in. Auto lite is the way to go on Mopar flatheads.

    Not starting

    If the plugs are wet, it’s flooded. Put gas pedal to the floor and hold it there while cranking. The more air that moves through the cylinders, the faster it will start. If you stop cranking to rest the starter, do not let up on gas pedal. Every time the gas pedal goes up and down more gas is shot into the manifold making flooded condition worse.

    Don, that is brilliant! If you get good at wrenching like that you wouldn’t have to get down on that damn creeper. Thanks for the tip.😂

    Anyone fix fluid drive in Chicago?

    If not the clutch, synchronizers in the transmission may be worn out.

    Cracked Manifold

    Merle, I understand you not wanting to tear into that at this time, but I would grind a small “V” in the crack and have it welded on the truck. Hoping to stop it from getting worse until you have more time.
