    Sounds good to me, I will give them a good inspection. Dave

    special head bolts

    Thanks for the offer, my old ones are still in the engine and I could reuse them but I would like new ones. Dave

    special head bolts

    No luck so far, I tried a google search with no finds. I have to look and see if the extra height gained from welding a nut on top of an existing bolt is acceptable, would welding comprimise the strength? Dave

    special head bolts

    There are 2 special head bolts on my 41 201. These bolts are used where the throttle linkage mounts to the engine. They appear to be same as the others except they are drilled and tapped to accept the mounting bolts for the linkage. I have checked and can not find new ones, anyone know where I can find new ones? Dave
  5. I know this has most likely been beat to death! I have tried a search with not much success, any certain words to search for? I have seen Egge, Kanter and Clegg, any other I should or should not look at? Any help would be appreciated. By the way, 1953 P-24 Plymouth 318 stock rebuild to go in my 41. Dave

    connection on back of engine??

    Very interesting! I will have to research this to cure my curiosity. Thanks! Dave
  7. I took my engine to the machine shop today. While we were looking at the block I talked about taking the plug that is at the rear of the main oil galley out when we noticed an o- ring groove cut into the area around this plug on the face where the bellhousing would face up to, there is another one of these o-ring grooved ports on the other side which is ported back toward the oil pan except it is plugged. I am guessing this must have been used for an oil supply and return for some form of auxillary equipment that was bolted to the rear of the engine in place of the bellhousing. Any thoughts on what this was for? By the way it a p-24 plymouth, 1953 engine. Dave

    I am looking for a carb for my 53 Plymouth 218, I have looked at the information of what is compatable and it seems there are quite a few. My question is, is there a table or some info as to what are the differences in these carbs, I'm sure there are some minor things that make the difference. Any help? Dave

    Well Andy the results are in, you are correct, the plymouth block has the passage for internal bypass but its head is for external bypass. On the other hand the dodge block is for external bypass and its head is for internal bypass. Don't even ask, I did not get them mixed up, they are painted differently. This may explain why the Plymouth looked freshly overhauled, I will bet it leaked like a sieve. Thanks for the water pump 101 class, I have learned a lot about these engines and hope to learn much more. I got a real education restoring my 2 chevy pickups and I am now in a different classroom. Thanks so much! My plan now is to use the Plymouth block with the dodge head with internal bypass waterpump. Dave

    I believe you are correct, there seems to be a mixed bag of parts on these engines. Tomorrow I will do more investigation to see if I can figure out for sure what I can do. Thanks for your help! Dave

    Good to hear on the carb issue, what did you end up using on your engine. Thanks for your help! Dave
