    Clock not working: any usual suspects?

    I soldered a diode across the points of my P-15 clock to prevent arcing. It ran well for years and was still running when I sold it. I saw the diode trick in an article in the P-15 Driver newsletter that was available years ago.

    Master cylinder

    Is the pressure relief hole in the bottom of the reservoir clear? If that's plugged one or more of the wheel cylinders may not release.

    Master cylinder

    I was working on the brakes on a 1931 Chrysler CM6 last spring. We honed the original master cylinder and put in a kit. We still need to pull the drums to check wheel cylinders and drums.

    Hubcap lettering

    I always use A Testors paint pen. It's a felt pen with enamel paint in it. They are sold at most hobby stores. Just fill in where you want paint and have a Q-tip or rag with solvent on it to clean up the edges.

    Overdrive cable bracket....

    The overdrive on the 48 coupe used to give me an average 21.7 mpg.

    P-15 Totaled

    Sorry to hear about your P-15 Bob. But the Barracuda will be a lot of fun. I sold my P-15 club coupe and drive a 1965 Barracuda with a slant six automatic. We drove it from Michigan to California on Route 66 in 2016. Maybe I'll see you on A bodies only or the early Valiant Barracuda site. You can also join the Plymouth BarracudaCuda Owners Club.

    Rumble seat/ rear glass question?

    My dad always said the roll down window was so you could pass beer to your friend in the rumble seat.

    The Venerable Slant 6 vs Our Beloved Flathead 6s

    In October 2016 I drove my 1965 Barracuda with a slant six , 904 automatic transmission, and a 2:76 rear end on Route 66 from Joliet IL to Santa Monica CA. The total trip from Michigan to California and back 5889 miles. I ran 60 to 70 MPH for most of the trip and got 21MPG average mileage. The slant six is a great motor.
