    Did a bunch of that shifting 2nd to 3rd without the clutch with my D-24. Did it with some others in the past as well. Just have to get the engine speed right to not be embarrassed by grinding noises😉

    Thoughts on Flat-towing?

    Towed my Dodge from Hornell. About 200 miles. Took the drive shaft loose at the rear. It was 4 bolts.

    Fuel pump block off plate

    Great idea for those wishing to keep that heat shield there for when they go to a show. Keeps that original look.

    plymouth three speed removal

    1 at each corner of the transmission. Be sure that the gasket between the transmission, and bell housing is in place when putting the transmission back in. Gear lube will leak from the hole in the transmission if not installed. My original gasket had no hole at that spot, so I did not cut a hole in my new gasket at that point.

    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.

    and as no one has mentioned it as of yet, I will. DO NOT apply grease to the new bushing.

    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.

    Lower it. That spec is for 1940 fuel formulation.

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