  1. Thank you very much. That helps a lot.
  2. I'm looking for some help on the clutch pedal lift springs on a 1952 Plymouth Concord. While I was diagnosing some clutch shudder, I noticed that my clutch rod between the torque tube and clutch pedal linkage is missing the two clutch pedal rod lift springs. I borrowed the pic below from a member's, post. I hope that was ok. I have a service manual, a motors manual and a old guide book, but they don't really describe the purpose of them. I assume by the name that they help lift the pedal. Is that all they do? If they are missing can they induce any kind of chatter
  3. I know it's not optimal, but I have 218 in a shop in Lacey, just south of Olympia. I have a craigslist ad with some details, if you are interested. seattle.craigslist.org/see/pts/d/lacey-plymouth-218-p23-motor-for-sale/7371871707.html
  4. Thank you for the link! I really appreciate it! I need to replace my exhaust next. The PO used straight pipes and did 45 degree cuts to make curves and it leaks in most of the joints.
  5. My 1952 Concord 218 has a split exhaust and its got Allied Blue Streaks on it. Pipes go over the axle and a little past the rear bumper. It's really quiet at idle and low rpm. I don't know what the equivalent muffler is today.
  6. I did this early last year. I didn't have to bend the mounts, but they came close to the upper arm. I put a plate on the outside and a plate with nuts welded on, on the inside. The sting was to help locate the inside plate. Prior to this it boated in turns even with the factory sway bar. The new shock mounts really helped a lot.
  7. On my 52 218 out of a Concord, it goes all the way through. I had to seal the threads on it.
  8. Bob's Auto Glass in Oregon has glass for a 1940, if that helps.
  9. Speaker pics, if anyone is interested.
  10. Good idea. I made a new thread called Backup Camera and Stereo Schematic.
  11. I recently added a double din size Kenwood stereo, an inexpensive backup camera and a universal power antenna to my 1952 Concord. The stereo does everything except for nav. My radio plate was buggered up already because someone cut it up for an aftermarket radio. The car was already converted to 12v when I got it. On Kenwood stereo's if ground out the Park Switch, you can play DVD's without it being in park...not that I will play DVD's whilst driving but we don't have a 'Park' mode, unless you put a switch on the service brake. I molded the stereo into the radio plate using a u
  12. Thanks. It stuck out farther than I wanted because of the wiper motor. I put the mic behind the grill. Haven't tested it yet.
  13. With the "plain janes", I think you can get away with mods that you wouldn't normally do with a pretty car.
