  1. Using a 518 trans in my b4. Want a floor shift. Anybody use a junkyard floor shift and convert it to fit. ?? thanks to all
  2. The first one . Cartridge type.
  3. The original oil filter- not a spin on type. Maybe they had a different name .the filter that fits inside the filter housing. Thanks
  4. Hi guys I’m relocating my canister type oil filter on my 53 hemi.. did anyone ever relocate a canister type filter to an alternate location. Can I just buy hydraulic lines - make a bracket?
  5. Thank you all for your help. I like the way you all addressed this situation.
  6. For all the kits he sells - I can’t figure why others using this kit are not familiar with similar troubles. I can’t get this right on my 1953 b4.
  7. Hello , To everyone once again.Im still trying to get this to work. Now does anyone have a material list - showing the final components to buy. according to rusty. Hopes list = namely the calipers . Don’t know which one to buy. I’m using this on my b4 thanks in advance
  8. Hello , To everyone once again.Im still trying to reengineer Rusty Hopes brake conversion kit. When I addressed this situation-which was that the spindles were too short to properly install the cotter pin in the castle nut on the spindle.Ive finally decided to consult a machine shop on shortening the rotor hub and recutting the bearing cup to give me more spindle thread length. I’ve talked to other members using his kit and they have no issues-so I guess my B4 is an odd ball. If I follow thru on this endeavor I will post on the out come.If anyone has this situation on their pilot house trucks- let me know how they addressed this problem.Thanks
  9. Hey guys, Need some genuine advice.Recently got my 276 hemi in my 1953 b4. It seems that when I try to install. the starter it doesnt bolt up to the trans due to a corner of the block protruding into the space. I called hot heads hemi and They never heard of a problem like that. Every single goes on th they never heard of a problem like that. So if I have A 904 transmission instead of a 727 transmission which one of the A 904 transmission instead of a 727 transmission which one of the torque converter’s do I buy to match up with the starter. Issue number two . Since the new starter is right in front of the stock since the new starter is right in front of the stock steering box if any you guys put a hemi in your old truck cool how did you re-route the steeriing.I thought maybe going to a later year that had a V-8 stock motor this I thought maybe going to a later year that had a V-8 stock motor this steering gear would mount different and give me clearance . I am keeping the drop front axle . Thank you for your help
  10. I have a 53 b4 Dodge truck. I was thinking about putting the grill together not using the grill fender pods and only mounting the parking light lenses to the fenders as I seen in several posts. Is this just the grill pod cover ring and lense?or is this a separate parking lite assembly. ? It looks like the 55 parking lites are very similar. Thanks
  11. I’ve seen some info on early hemi installs - my installer went awol - so I’ve to tackle the job myself. Any info appreciated. Thanks
  12. Thanks so much for advice. I was thinking about those Dakota gauges- but now I’ll stick to oem
  13. Hello to everyone I’m in the process of changing my 53 pilot house to 12 V negative ground .I want to use my original gauges. So I’m asking what I have to do besides the volt reduction resister and the lights in the gauges to make them work how do I hook up the negative grounds to the gauges because they were positive ground before .thanks
  14. Thank you for. Your response . I’ve been posting on this awhile and have stated in previous posts that I had changed to a 99 Cherokee 3:55 rear . I like the third member e brake idea.
