Floor shift concepts for Mopar column shift Transmssions

Howdy folks - Coming from another blog topic, which strayed down a back road, came the idea of  transmissions for Mopar Cars and Trucks that were post 1940 that came with  Column shift and the normally column shift transmission was modified or the linkage was to turn it into a 3 speed floor shift transmission. So this isn't about taking a vehicle that had column shift and putting a transmission for the 1930s or a modern floor shift transmission to make the vehicle floor shift. This is

George update, and AoK Intake updates

Howdy Folks -  I thought I would do an update on a few topics.  1st the most important one being my buddy George Asche Jr.  George who was hospitalized a few months ago continues to  be regaining his health at a rate  I think everyone including he himself find remarkable.  I was down last week and helped him build another engine and a bunch of other thing.   He continues to work through a long list of promised work, from engines and over drives, to intake, carbs and linkage. The last AoK ra

The Grand Master Turns 85 today !

February 6 1932   my good friend and second Dad, the Grand Master of Flathead Mopars -  George Asche was born.     Yesterday was his surprise Birthday Party and today is George's 85th Birthday!     The picture below  is rumored to be when George Graduated High School, but I think really that should be a diploma of future Flathead Chrysler, Desoto, Plymouth, Dodge/Fargo's mastery !    In the background is his Dad's Dodge truck which George still owns today!   Happy Birthday George!

My Dads Original " 1938 Desoto/Plymouth "Approved Service" double sided porcelain dealer sign.

This was my Dad's  original 1938 Desoto -  Plymouth Approved Service Dealer Sign. My Grandfather  had a later Desoto-  Plymouth sign and a Chrysler -  Fargo Trucks sign hanging on the outside of his shop, which he built after he retired from Chrysler Corporation. It was a 42" sign and of course Dad always admired it.     When Grandfather passed away the signs were sold at auction and the pair sold for $18,500 and after their sale Dad almost immediately started looking for one.  Years later

Single Carb Intake, Dual Carb Intake, Triple Carb Intake, why not more ?

·         ·       For Decades I have listened to people talk about Flathead Mopar 6 Cylinder Engines in terms of intakes, what is the best carb configuration for their particular situation.      Discussions on putting two carbs and those who claim to be sure that is too much carburation or that it will use to much fuel. Then every once in a while the discussion of 3 carbs comes up, and that almost always sparks the debate on how it would take a race motor to need it, or how the en

That is strictly for prototype purposes and the production versions have a longer bar  That allows for a linkage bar to come down from each carb to the
