    49 plymouth

    I just saved a 49 Plymouth that was headed for the scrap yard, the title says 48 with matching numbers, did they title the first 49 as 48??????

    Sbc in 50 plymouth

    thanks for all the concern, thanks for the kind words, I do have some fabrication abilities, I am not looking for a step by step how to. I have several rear ends, both 8 and 9 inch fords laying around the shop, driveshaft is 100 bucks, had 1 done for my truck. I have a friend that did the exact swap on a 49 Desoto, he shifted the engine 2 inches to the passenger side. no problem with stock steering, nor with starter and exhaust. I also have a bunch of club brothers to help if needed, and seems like there are a bunch of people here willing to help. Thanks!!!

    Sbc in 50 plymouth

    So as per my last post I got it pretty good for suggesting putting a Chevy in my 50. I personally am not fond of the idea, but sometimes you use what you have and what you can afford. A year ago I was thinking about putting my 270 Hemi in as was stated by someone else in the previous post, but it was recommended when I was asking questions then, that I not do it because of the amount of work it would take. It was recommended I stay with the 6 banger. I looked into the cost of rebuilding the 6, and it was a lot more than what I really can afford to spend on a non necessary vehicle right now or at that time. I just don't want this car to sit and rot. I really got very little help in that post a year ago but I did get a lot of opinion. Hopefully some will be happy with my decision, but I posted my issue on another site and a very good friend spoke up and has a 318 that has been built with only 58k on it and will sell it to me at a great price. Another friend has done this swap, so I have someone to ask if I run into problems. I did not mean to offend anyone! Was never my point. Just wanted to keep my old 50 going down the road!

    1950 plymouth engine swap

    thanks, you have talked me out of the swap!!! think I will just put the hemi in my 54 chevy truck, and put a six in the Plymouth!

    1950 plymouth engine swap

    the hemi is a good one, running with 43,000 actual miles, no smoke at all. I have another flatty stashed away but it needs rebuilt. the hemi has a trans but it is a big trans which would mean a lot of firewall work too. I also have a mustang 2 setup, but I was trying to find the quickest easiest install.

    new guy/remote oil filter

    thanks for all the info, I am trying to find out to maintain this car for many years pleasure. I have changed the oil pretty regular and the car has made many trips, some for a couple hundred miles running pretty hard. I am consistently learning more and new tricks to keep her healthy. this car has been the most dependable of all of my cars and has never failed to get me where I wanted to go. I hope to keep it that way!!! I am about 35 miles east of Indianapolis. thanks for all the help scott

    new guy/remote oil filter

    my desire was to get rid of the element system not for visual appearance but for more modern availability of the screw on filters plus the ease of changing the filter. The oil can when changing the oil, done proper, must be removed to get all the old oil out, much more work than screwing a filter on and off. I don't want to change how it works, just don't want to cause a starving situation. so if I understand correctly, I can eliminate the can and element for a screw on filter, it will not hurt in any way shape or form because only 30% will flow through the filter?? Is this correct??? This topic has created more questions! if the filter does not filter all the oil that means oil must be changed more frequently to keep clean oil in??? I am all about clean oil and changing it. many of my daily drivers have 250 to 400 thousand miles on them, I attribute that to regular oil changing! thanks scott

    new guy/remote oil filter

    hi all name is scott, I am new here, I am on hamb, performance years Pontiac forum and several othes, was into bikes for many years, now into cars, trying to learn all I can!!! I have a question and was refererred here. I have a 1950 Plymouth special deluxe with the original l head 6 engine. it runs great. I am looking to install a remote oil filter on it and do away with the element system. the line going to the element can are very small and the remote filter has much larger lines. I am concerned about cause an oil starving situation with the larger lines. I have seen it on some other l heads but it is a concern, I don't want to damage the engine, it has a lot of miles left!!! Thanks for any help scott
