    Yep, no damage, minimal yard debris.
  2. Thank you Dodgeb4ya, for the picture in #2. I have the same "Directional Signal Switch" on my '49 D30. I figured there had to be a spring or something for the two top forked arms to function with. My switch will not self cancel. Now, to find a suitable spring.
  3. If your local gas station offers it, use ethanol free marine gas. A bit more expensive but without the problem of ethanol.
  4. If you use the search feature, there are photos of one installed. You have to fabricate tabs on the lower control arm.
  5. Thank you casper 50 (fellow Devil Dog), I was thinking I may have to resort to making my own.
  6. I am in search of a source for the parking light assemblies on the front of my D-30. These would be the gasket between the body and light fixture. So far Steele Rubber, Metro Molded, and the other popular parts providers have yielded nothing. Any suggestions? PM me if needed. Thanks!
  7. My first "old car was a 54 Ford Customline 4 door I bought in '09. It was six with an automatic. Nice car but a lot of floor cancer. While riding to breakfast in my buddy's '48 P-15 coupe (2014 Daytona Turkey Run), I thought while looking through the split windshield that I had to have on. So I sold the Ford and bought my '49 Coroner 4 door the next spring. No regrets, the flathead has more pep than the 223 in. Ford six.
  8. That was interesting. Thanks for clarifying.
  9. I plan to adapt a 200R4 or a TH350 behind my 230 using the Wilcap adapter. A mount at the adapter plate will be paramount but doable. Cardboard for mocking is our friend according to a friend of mine.
  10. I am suprised no one uses a balance pipe between the carbruators to help with smoothing out idle adjustment and overall run quality. I say this as I had an air cooled VW with twin carbs and could never get it run right. A VW tech. asked me if my manifolds had plugs, I said yes. He said I should have run tubing to them (a balance pipe). I sold the dub but put that tip in the memory bank.
  11. Looks like a wrap to me. Love it!
  12. My close friend has a '48 Plymouth Super Dlx coup with a warmed over 273 SBM. He originally had a Mustang radiator and it hot. Had the '48 radiator cleaned and checked, and of overheat. Short answer, your cleaned stock radiator will be fine.
  13. Merry Christmas to all and a happy, safe, and prosperous New Year.
  14. If you use any of the 50/50 pre-mix coolants sold in parts houses and box stores, the anode may not be needed. Pre-mixes use de-ionized water thereby reducing electrolysis and residue build up found when using tap water or other water. Jim
  15. Rebel Wire makes 6 volt re-wire kit. I don't recall if it is a 9 or 12 wire kit. Check their website for current information. Great quality, great staff. Jim
