    Overheating. 210 in a 160 thermo

    I have questions.. Is there water flow in radiator when running at operating temps. ? Is top hose ,bottom hose ,and radiator all the same temps. at operating temps? if it's flowing, you need to check for a head gasket leak, pull oil fill cap, is condensation present ? pull water pump belt off . remove cap ,start motor . are there bubbles present in radiator when revving or leave belt on and let motor idle look at the bubbles , do they go away in a couple of minute of idling ..compression bubbles look different than aeration bubbles .. or go buy block checking kit, see if changes from blue to yellow...https://www.napaonline.com/en/p/BK_7001006... It would be good to invest in a IR temp gun ..https://www.amazon.com/HDE-Non-Contact-Thermometer-Temperature-Functional/dp/B00QYX6F5G. cheap and good for everything. don't get me started on all the problems this thing can help find..I typed bubbles many times.. Or pull all plugs look into cylinder too see if any piston tops are clean..

    rear axle swap

    A clutch, is a clutch, is a clutch. makes no difference a 39 plymouth to a 2018 dodge ram , to a peterbilt 379. . its all the same . just bigger parts.. you just need to find a good mechanic.. chase down a Snap on tool truck.. And what Plymouthy Adams, wayfarer, said... seek and you will find....Check the Napa store, I get many referrals from them. sorry for the font change , copy and pasted , the whole thing failed..Oh no!!

    Howling when hot

    does noise change stepping on clutch? exhaust manifold gaskets tic more than howl . my guess is a mount problem , exhaust and/or motor, something rubbing body/frame.

Maybe he told his wife " Honey , I'am leaving you as soon as I sell the car ,look heres the ad" ha ha. .I think he built this car with his wallet and has that much invested in it .. all the vendors told him put a 4 spd in its worth so much more.. sell sell sell. it's worth more if you have the hemi seat springs..I'am going to quit typing now..

    Backfire through oil breather....

    backfire should come out of exhaust. BOOM ! if it is, look for distributor problem ... if combustion is happening in pan, you would have many other problems . so my guess is valve not seating [ sticking valve or valve guides worn] , lean mixture [ accelerator pump ,vacuum leak] , retarded timing [ dist. timing , worn timing chain ], in that order. not enough info to diagnosis properly.
