    Transmission Advice

    Adam really appreciate the feed back.A Dakota 518 is what I need then.Must it come from a v6 or v8? I’m not up to date on any late model mopar components. Tha 276 I’m getting has a Wilcap adapter on it now but it’s for a 39 ford. I did call pat McGuire- but as of yet he hasn’t answered. I’m never worked inside an auto trans other than service.But the one wire overdrive is what I need. What year Dakota is that from? If you don’t mind once the engine is in Imight need some more info - so I’d like to contact you .thanks greatly

    Transmission Advice

    Hi to all, Got a 53 b4.putting the small block hemi 276 in. I have a 3:55 ratio diff . Need a suggested auto trans w/ overdrive to use . Would prefer staying with mopar manuf...Read several posts suggesting Dakota trans. Not familiar with any of these trans. Would appreciate any knowledge related to this. Thanks
  3. St63 Bergy here. Just wondering how you’re making out with your Dodge engine swap. I decided to go with a 37 LaSalle three speed transmission behind the baby Desoto hemi. I would have like to use my original Dodge transmission with the brake set up on the dry shaft. I was just wondering how you were making out. Have a nice day keep me informed always looking for information on our project

    B4 headliner

    1953 b4 here. Look king for advice on a headliner and rear cab surround. Called John at pilot house interiors and was impressed. But that’s kinda steep. Also checked out the abs parts- not too impressed. What did you other fellas do. I seen one guy had patterns- but he never answered back. Appreciate the help.

    Under floor pedal

    Hi everyone Putting that baby hemi in my 53 b4. .I am looking for a solution to keep the under Floorboard pedal set up. I’m probably going to go with a hydraulic clutch. I did see on speedway an under floorboard pedal set up but it was up close to 600 bucks. I was wondering if anybody build their own brackets and used 2 master cylinders one for the clutch ane for the brake and what their set up look like. I appreciate it and thank you.
  6. I have a 53 b4. Seen on dodge sites where guys used like 55 or something close- parking lite or front fender turn signals bezel’s and glass.mine has the lite pods but the lens and bezel from the newer dodge loooks cleaner. Anyone do this and what did you use?? thanks. bergy

    53 dodge b4 engine

    Well hello to all Another episode in my quest for glory. Putting the 276 desota hemi in my b4. Getting all kinds of ideas about the trans. 1. Use the 37 lasalle 3 speed 2. Use my original - new process 4 speed 3. Use a late model t5 5 speed. Talked to American powertrain- tech advice said he used the desota hemi and hid dodge trans- no issues. Talked to hemi head and they said they have adaptors to t5 trans or 904 auto. The like the trans brake and my clutch set up right on the bell housing. But I like the 5 speed synchronize trans. Any one with comments - I’d appreciate all the help
