    Head Gasket Recommendation

    no copper spray on PermaTorque head gaskets.. i looked it up on felpro site. if block and head are flat, check torque wrench calibration , the big snap on trucks have a machine to check. . copper spray , is a band aid to other problems... head and gasket need to be able to move around. the gaskets you buy today are light years ahead of '49 gaskets... why did you change head gasket in the first place? was it blown between 1 and 2?

    Mr. Shanks

    I wondered about this also. I just thought he bought the wrong car .. I've posted ads that aren't very old dodges , but just to share the craziness and oddity of other humans ads . all in fun !! At least I own a couple of B1C trucks.
  5. https://jacksonville.craigslist.org/cto/d/keystone-heights-1940-dodge-project/6782092399.html could this truck be saved? why would somebody start to build , then sell? or is this a "grave digger" starter kit? kind of complex cage for a mud truck, and the bar across the knee area ..ouch! It doesn't look like it would do 10 sec quarter. Why the cage? I like the 440's included. I hope he didn't cut up a good truck..

    Need Ideas for Converting Coins into Paper Money

    Bank teller at the bank said, " just roll the quarters and dimes, dump the rest in a coin machine, bring the rolls to me ". I'am cheap, so I roll all my own.. once a year...this year had enough to get a carburetor , a gas tank , and 5 gallons race gas . It's like free money!!

    Dropping transmission - any pointers?

    +1 on the throwout bearing and check bearing retainer.. check clutch free travel.. also with a bad transmission bearing, you would have other problems.. as for removing trans, I put floor jack under trans in line. so the jack can roll back. wiggle transmission, slide it back , lower, wiggle transmission, slide it back , lower, for extra insurance place many short 2x4s around jack, in case you can't control the crash .. roll it off the jack.. drag it out ... I put them in the same way... slow and calculated is best ..

    Dual B & B Carb tuning

    "seems that it is very easy to flood the motor ", the motor is flooded before you start it..." The carbs leak after I turn the engine off thru the bottom shafts", high float level caused by float level too high, , trash in the needle and seat , sunk float. because both carbs. leak ...I would head to the fuel filter, trash made it to the needle and seats. you need to get new ones, they come in the carb. kits Or the float level is just set to high , from past repairs. pull carb. top off like 5 or 6 screws...you can push float tang against the needle and check height , level or less . . as for synchronizing carbs , you need 2 vacuum gauges.. synchronizing carbs. is not that important,, because they share a common plenum.... make sure they open at the same time. and go to full throttle at the same time ,set mixture too highest vacuum..Oh yea,, does oil smell like gas???.
