  1. Plymouth P28 with Holley

    I wanna see a picture of it... Glass bowl sounds neat. I may have seen one before, but I never have put my hands on one.
  2. Scarebird and Fatman

    I talked to him on the phone 1 day before he died at the race track... A top notch man, well missed from us vintage Mopar builders.
  3. what engine rebuild kit to use

    That guy is giving one hell of a deal including parts. Does he use a torque plate?
  4. what engine rebuild kit to use

    To be honest, me being on the cheap, I have taken the last couple of years to buy pistons, rings, bearings, and etc. off of eBay. When timed right, I have found complete piston sets with rings as low as $35 shipped. Unfortunately, I don't have any "spares" to offer. But if in a hurry, try pricing with Vintage Power Wagons first.... Then source everything out with everyone else. Rock Auto used to be good, but I have noticed price increases as of late, and not as many parts left to be purchased. I suppose that the well maybe drying up, so to speak. Try Summit Racing too... Let your fingers do the walking to save a couple of bucks here and there...
  5. Scarebird and Fatman

    Gotcha... OK, sorry for the misunderstanding. I really miss my buddy from Plydo. He made some great brake conversion parts.
  6. Scarebird and Fatman

    I would assume that if you use Mustang II parts, that finding Ford brake parts would be a piece of cake.... Why would a scarebird kit be sourced if you use the cheapest suspension out there? Just curious.... Most of our vehicles are IFS, not quite understanding why you would use Ford IFS over the Mopar... Why is your username Unknown? Perhaps you can try the Hamb, a lot of custom builders that mismatch parts on cars have good info on this subject. I hope this will help in some way....
  7. Sbc in 50 plymouth

    Off topic, but don't forget about the motor city madman!!!! LOL He built some cool stuff!
  8. First foray into the classic Mopar world ... 49 meadowbrook

    You can buy the socket at a Tractor Supply Company store chain, or a Menards at a great price. I got both sockets for cheap at the TSC.... I want to say that I bought them for around 10 bucks each a couple of years ago....
  9. hot rod 1930 plymouth

    Hi Jeff, welcome to the forum! I just sent you a PM. Mr. Fargo is right. All of us here can do our best to help you out.
  10. water tube question

    That car looks amazing! Thanks for the pictures of how it's done. Very neat idea!
  11. water tube question

    I can achieve the same results... After busting my butt with coat hangers, steel rods, and using a power washer. THEN I will wire wheel down the block.... I like your method much better! Why didn't I think of that? Neato!
  12. help me find sbc swap into 50 plymouth links

    I always kinda figure if you wanted a chevy and it's short comings, go buy one. But it's your car, you can do whatever you wish. As a daily driver, the good old flatheads are notorious for being sound engines. With the time, effort, and fabrication that you will endure..... Going with another flathead would be cheaper in the long run. Plus you will most likely get better gas mileage, more savings to consider. I put a small block Chrysler, the better SBC, in my 1959 Dodge D100. I was able to find everything I needed to make it a bolt in. Just a little of information to think about. I wish I still had that truck! I miss it dearly.... Good luck on your adventure, I hope that you find the best path to suit you. P.S.- my first car was a 1957 chebbie, I owned many chebbies since then as a matter of fact.... The first Mopar I owned was so much more of a car. After owning that 1969 Valiant, I have decided to be a Chrysler only guy(now for over 20 years). Other than my work car throw aways that achieve over 30 MPG to help me drive 80,000 miles a year to do my job.... LOL.
  13. water tube question

    Let us know, I hope that everything will be fine.
  14. Exciting 1933 Dodge project!

    Bump! What's the latest and greatest?
  15. water tube question
