    1950 Wayfarer sedan

    Please note, if you find a 230 ci engine there could be issues with flywheel/starter compatibility if you use your existing bellhousing Not a game stopper but an issue that you will have to address. Also, I believe that engines equipped with fluid drive trannys have oil passages feeding the trans.

    From a Generator to an Alternator.

    First of all, 47 Chrys.Winds. says he's leaving the car 6 volt pos. ground. Does anyone actually make a 6 volt pos. ground alternator? Second of all, Mack, great song; remember when it was NEW! Sitting here right now surfing & watching Wheel Of Fortune & almost fell out of my chair when that second screen came up after Jack to a King finished playing.

    The Lowered Stance Picture and Build Thread

    Leaves one speechless, does it not?

    The Lowered Stance Picture and Build Thread

    1 coil cut out in front, 2" blocks in rear.

    Door plunger stuck

    First thing I would do is soak all the moving parts with WD-40. Could just be 64 years of crud build up in there.

    plymouth three speed removal

    First, place jack stands under your vehicle. Remove drive shaft; disconnect speedo cable, shifter arms, & e-brake cable. Remove the bracket that secures the e-brake cable from the left side of trans. Remove the 4 bolts holding trans to bell housing. Like Webmaster says, transmission jack or at least a floor jack will make things a lot easier for you. On a '48 the floor over the trans is removable. Not sure about your '50 but that would also make things a lot easier for you. Best of luck & if I missed anything, guys, please correct me.

    Greetings from KY

    Welcome to the site. Great to see another old Plymouth saved. Best of luck with your project. Keep us posted.

    slightly warped 304ss exhaust pipe flange

    Guess you're already past the 3/8 to 1/2 extension mentioned by Dodgeb4ya. That being said, you now have a pretty flat surface to work on. I've been lucky so far with a Craftsman hand held belt sander for similar tasks. our local hardware sells emery cloth belts for it from very fine to coarse. Cuts pretty fast whatever grit you use though so be careful if you go this way. Good luck.

    leftover parts

    By the way folks, that phone is still hooked up & working. Smart phone too. won't let me fall for "press one to hear more options."

    leftover parts

    So when you shave the deck lid on your Plymouth what do you do with the brake light lens? Here's the stained glass window our daughter made with mine. Reuse, repurpose, whatever. Just never throw parts away!

    Question: Axle supplier...

    Just found a place on the web: autopartsobsolete.com. They seem to have a lot of MOPAR stuff, new old stock. Ordered from them for the first time but have not yet received my order. Don't know if they have axles but check them out if you like. Good luck
  12. Rear wheel cylinder leaking on my '38 Dodge D-8. Ordered new kits from Rock Auto and they look too small. Like to know I have the right parts in my hands before I pull the old ones out. Can anyone tell me the inside diameters (plural) of the rear cylinders? Thanks in advance for any replies.

    Wiper set-up problem identifcation? Help :-)

    Be sure the rubber vacuum hose is not dried out & cracked. That's a pretty common source of a leak. I drive a closed car which has no booster. The booster is probably only for your top vacuum cylinders. Am I right, convert guys?

    Get on the Plymouth train

    Went to an event at the local Shriner's club recently. This thing was circling the grounds. Only info available from one of their guys was that they've had it since 1970. Gas engine, sounded like a 6 cyl. but not able to peek under the hood. Interesting piece of equipment. Anybody have any idea if it's really a Plymouth??

    Bell housing hole plug

    It's an aluminum screen similar to the square one on the right side. It has little tabs that fold out to hold it in the bell housing. It's probably still in the bottom of the hot tank.
