    Oil Pans Types

    Would that slot on the side line up with the dip stick, or is it on the wrong side for that?

    Dropping transmission - any pointers?

    I second the use of guide pins to assist with removal and installation. That, and a little platform for your floor jack if you do not have a transmission jack. Makes it a 1 person job. And don't leave out that gasket that prevents leaking from the open hole. Use your camera before, and as you proceed with the removal.

    Air filter

    When I did mine I went to NAPA. They had a book that you could use to look up a filter by measurements. I was actually able to borrow the book for a couple of days as I bowled with the counter guy. No # for you, as my conversion was a D-24 EDIT: Gut that puppy. Mock up for measurements. Leave a lip when cutting, and filter will be unseen. See post 24 for image: http://p15-d24.com/topic/37745-oil-bath-filter-versus-paper-filter/?tab=comments#comment-392914

    Fuel Pump

    There is a weep hole in the pump. when there is a problem with the diaphragm it will leak at the weep hole as well as allow fuel to pass beyond the cam lever into the crankcase. Edit: add photo

    Bad Reproduction Fender Stone Guards on Ebay

    Go to the "resolution center" at the bottom of any eBay page. Open a return case for item not as described. Oopsie. Did not read all. You already did the correct thing.

    Just raise the distributor up enough to rotate the rotor and shaft 180 degree. Doesn't take much

    Engine oil gage rubber hose

    It has been posted in the past that a brake hose will fit. search for posts by norms coupe Brake hoses carry a warning about "oil" getting on the hoses. Not sure how much oil gets in contact with the hose via this application as it is a pressure thing, nor do I know how many years it would take to be a problem.

    Boiling fuel

    Lower it. That spec is for 1940 fuel formulation.

    where are the timing marks on the timing chain set?

    Calling the dot "small" may be giving it "extra credit" 😜

    Internal Fuel Tank line or sump is clogged

    The ferrule is like a spacer up through 1948. It is tapered at both ends, and one end seats against the fuel line fitting being connected, and the other end seats against the fitting mounted in the tank. I have read here in the past of applying a bit more force with a coat hanger to knock the olite filter off. Filter acts to not only keep dirt/debris from getting out of the tank, but will also not allow water to pass. If knocked off another filter of sorts in the line would be essential.

    I need an english translation :-)

    Clamp EDIT: with thumb screw EDIT 2: I thought you meant the thing at the bottom of the air cleaner, and not the thing at the bottom in the previous photo🤣

    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.

    49 or 50

    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.

    49 or 50

    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.
