  1. New Tachometer

    Thanks! I also have been shifting this car by ear for the past 28 years. It's just finally good to see what I've known for quite a while, this particular engine(with all it's mods) revs fast and high.
  2. New Tachometer

    Old SW. Cable drive. This is the one that I ran in my A sedan for a few years, but I knew to keep it when I sold that car.
  3. New Tachometer

    Got the chance and put this in my 54 yesterday. I'm having trouble putting the video on here, but if you go find me on Instagram(@manifoldsbymoose) you can see it in action.
  4. This is fairly near me, I could go check it out for somebody. https://boston.craigslist.org/sob/cto/d/1953-dodge-fire-engine-twin/6318523730.html
  5. Front Coil Springs

    Here's my 54 Belvedere. 25 years or so ago, I cut 1-1/2 coils out of the front springs. Since then they have sagged more, and I have gotten tired of bottoming out. I placed an order through Eaton for stock height replacements, thinking I would drive it as a tail dragger for a while, then possibly in the future maybe go with dropped uprights. Well, Eaton messed up. I could barely get the springs in there, and now there is no movement of the suspension. I've already called and talked to them. They said they had the wrong one on file. Wanted me to measure the bumper height? I told them the proper measurement is between the inside and outside of the A-arm, and should be 1/2". Currently the difference is 4-1/2" and the bumper is 17-1/2" from the ground! I really just wanted to vent about this, and my wife doesn't want to hear anything more about springs
  6. The Lowered Stance Picture and Build Thread

    I got the springs this morning, and got right to work. Pulled the old ones and compared to the new. Looked right. Has the right number of coils if you add the 1-1/2 that I cut off 25 years ago. Got them from Eaton Spring, ordered Stock height for an unmodified p25. But now it looks like a gasser, and it has no movement of the suspension! What did I do wrong?
  7. Look what I found!

    When's the party?
  8. The Lowered Stance Picture and Build Thread

    Three inch blocks and 1-1/2 coils out of the front. This picture was taken in the early 90's. In the last couple of years its been bottoming out a lot, so I just ordered new front springs for it. I'm gonna try the east coast tail dragger for a little while, then maybe go to dropped uprights. Keeping my options open.

  11. Gasket Identification?

    Recently I was given a box of Mopar gaskets, quite a few were in original envelopes. If anybody knows what numbers go to what, let me know and if you need any, they are up for grabs. I think they are all transmission related. 1632 043 1408 254 1408 255 1408 518 1063 657 - Desoto and Chrysler 41-47 830144 - 1935-39 1853 888 1636 298 1636 303 1636 317 -Snap ring 1636 357 -snap ring 1636 358 -snap ring 1327 730 -snap ring PowerFlite 2125 239 1321 249 1321 251 1603 251 -1954 all models Everybody is welcome to any or all of these, also have a bunch that weren't in packages.
  12. 53.stock Plymouth speed

    Update- My overdrive has been repaired, and is functional again! We'll just have to see if I can find an open road. The overdrive lowers engine speed by 0.7, and effectively gives it a rear end ratio of 2.61. In OD it should have the same engine speed at 100mph as direct drive at 70mph. The RPM calculator says that is just over 3200.<--Loads of torque right there.
  13. Triple carbs for 23" block?
