    48 Dodge - cracked up! Help

    1946-1954 Dodge should be a fit. AMS Obsolete (eBay formerly Mitchell Motor Parts) claims to have it in stock. Part # 1139099 (right hand thread studs) I have an over turned (out of specs)front on the shelf in the garage, but that is no help:( Oldmoparts claims to have many brake drums available. A phone call is required to check on that.

    Would be Rubicon Recycling, Rome NY. They have only a few classics, but they try to keep them for a while if they can. very slim pickins on the MoPar front. They had a '50 Dodge 4dr for about 1-1/2 year, but gone now. It had a drive train swap before arrival. The classics here seem to be mostly 60's, 70's. Vince's u-pull in Marcy sometimes gets oldies in. They just go in the mix with everything else, and as far as I know go to the crusher on a time based schedule. Saw a '50 Chevy earlier this month, but did not venture over to it, as I was on a mission with limited time for sightseeing. I have been to U-Pull U-Save in East Sry., but did not pick any classics there.

    1950 DeSoto fuel pickup problem

    This is a long shot, and could be off base, but try putting some dry gas in there. Not sure why it would not happen all the time if it were the problem, but if there is water in the tank it will not pass through the fuel tank pickup filter. Water will block the passage of fuel until it is disturbed, and moved away from the filter.

    Next to last trip to the modern u-pull there was a Plymouth coupe in the "classic" section. 40? 41? (see edit) There wasn't much left on it. I did not have a wire brush to de-rust to check the engine #. Looked on the pillar for a S/N, but being a 48/50/51 guy, I looked on the left pillar. Forgot that earlier may be on the right. No camera with me. (EDIT: turns out it was a P-15. Also it was not a coupe😣 I blame it on the heat, a senior moment, and being in a rush. As I approached it this time, the 1st thing that I spotted was there was an outside door lock on the driver's side. Looked again, and there were 4 doors. My thought of an earlier coupe was because I saw the remains of a spot for running boards. That was just aged out rockers. Not much left. Outside handles there. All inside handles gone.The dash was stripped except for a starter switch that looked like it had seen better days. I did not even push it to see if it stuck in. You could see the firewall through all the empty spaces in the dash.) The cord on my phone does not reach that far☹️

    Valve spring cup

    If rally's stash comes up dry, I have one about 70 miles East of you as the crow flies. Just looked at it on a shelf in the garage. PM an address if you don't get one. Can drop it in the mail. Probably there in 2 days. My mail processes through the plant in Syracuse.

    Fuel Sending Unit help

    Yogi's TAN-GML may work. 0-90 ohms Would need to be modified by cutting down the height, and possibly the float arm length to compensate for tank depth.

    Radio wiring

    D24 calls for a 14 amp inline fuse. I would expect the P15 to be the same, so a 10 amp fuse would not cause any wiring issues.

    Oil in Exhaust Manifold

    The valves are located right under the spark plug holes. I would be surprised if some MMO did not come out

    What to do with old parts aka MoPart

    A little WD, and some never-dull you could have put those parts back in service

    price differences wheel brake cilinder

    re-sleeving is a good idea no matter how much the vehicle is driven. If driven little it seems like a high per mile cost, but vehicles driven less, and/or sit for long periods will benefit from re-sleeving by not having the failure associated with pitting cylinders. Loss of your brakes due to failed cylinders just once at the wrong time will reveal the shortsightedness of thinking a re-sleeve is not practical.
