    True to its nickname.....Doggie Dish.

    A Vega? Did you just set the car on fire, or was it already burning?
  2. Welcome, you are in the right place to ask questions. There is a lot of knowledgeable help here.

    Anyone seen a 51 B3JMA?

    Will bet snow is not one of them!

    What is this?

    Boy am I disappointed, you guys don’t know a manual flux capacitor when you see one?
  5. I see a 49 Plymouth bumper.

    Bad 230 crank

    I can understand that, probably all of us has been there. Hang in there. A year ago I found 2 different guys on Craigslist that had purchased Dodge trucks and pulled the flathead with trans to install a V8. I bought both complete engines with trans still bolted on for $100 each. 6 months ago on Craig’s list I found a free 201 engine complete. All 3 of these guys just wanted them out of their shop.

    Bad 230 crank

    Tyler, it may take a little time but a crank can be found at a reasonable cost. If you can’t afford the VPW price, what do you think it will cost to buy a V8, get it ready, and install it? Don’t give up on your flathead.
  8. Do yourself a favor, leave the Autolites in it. I would NOT use Champion plugs if they were free.

    1954 Plymouth Suburban Project

    I’m guessing he means a .45 pistol. Good thing to have with you in the land of fruits and nuts.😋

    At least you had the good sense to get out of there and return to Nebraska !

    46 dodge exhaust manifold gasket replacement

    Wd 40 is a poor choice as a rust penetrant. Any auto parts store will have more than one product that is better. Ask the counterman. I like JB 80 or PB Blaster.

    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.

    Chrome alternative

    Gary that sounds good, but do you know how long they will look good without re doing them? What is oilPaint infuser? What does it do?
