  1. Here's the hose, overly long but may work well with trimming, seethe radiator end with the larger diameter.
  2. Ok, I got the outlet and the hose on hand. Just a couple of quick shots. I'll try to tackle it this weekend. Outlet, see the difference in height?
  3. Pricey, but is this the right carb for the OP? https://www.carburetorcenter.com/product-page/1949-1953-dodge-stromberg-bxves-3-carburetor-remanufactured
  4. Butch's kit left a bit of engineering to do. I would go with a universal engine mount brackets similar to these https://chassisengineeringinc.com/product-tag/dodge/ They also make universal transmission mounts, but if you look at the offerings you could probably fab something up easily https://chassisengineeringinc.com/product-tag/universal/?category=engine-transmission-crossmember Your biggest issue will be the exhaust clearing the stock steering box is you keep it.
  5. The two biggest issues with the stock front suspension are the upper shock mounts and the very short driver's side tierod assembly. Upper shock mount relocation is pretty common and well covered here. Though I found a set of stiff gas charged shocks that fit the stock mounting and seems a good improvement along with cut down Aerostar springs. The tie rod issue is probably best solved with a rack and pinion swap as in the first link I posted. Power steering could be added then. Adding disc brakes to the front is easy, several vendor's have kits, each have issues though. Rear axle will definitely need replaced which will give you better brakes as well. Explorer 8.8 swaps are common, several threads here on it and can be had with discs as well. I would not do a frame swap, but I don't weld. Same with clipping it. Rear suspension will need addressed, I can wheel hop with the stock flat 6 power, lol.
  6. Thought you were going with a Hemi?
  7. Hello, not sure anyone has put a newer Hemi in one on this site. There are a couple of members here that have done similar though
  8. No idea at all. I am a stick guy myself
  9. I looked at RA's listings for a 52 Coronet, all are Carter.
  10. Yes, I probably got more into my 51 than I bought it for and it's reasonable, to the extent that I have not and will not add up those costs. Otherwise I would pull my hair out.
  11. My biggest peeve is the people who apparently do not know that when you are merging onto a freeway you are supposed to either merge smoothly or yield. In the company truck I will pinch them off., same with people that wait till the last second to move out of a lane that is closed.
  12. Here's a clip of the Dynomax Super Turbos on a sound test setup
  13. Found a couple of Mopar flathead muffler videos. Dual Smithy's Dual Cherry booms, on a truck, sounds like a truck Duals, no mention of what muffler though Straight pipes (I like this one best, lol) Open pipes
  14. If a rope rear main isn't leaking let it be. Never wake up a sleeping dog, lol.
  15. I LOVE SHAMU Shamu was a killer whale at SeaWorld Nice wagon
  16. Well, my thermostat housing started to leak when I put a spacer in for my electric fan setup. Took the spacer out and it still leaks, it didn't before so after seeing these new ones are leaky our of the box I decided to see about using the V8 one someone mentioned. Since I know the V8 one is considerably shorter than out housing I'd need a new hose, that prompted me to see if I could find a molded hose that would work. I dislike those ribbed universal hoses, whenever I see one I think no attention to detail, especially on an engine swap setup. I am weird like that.
  17. the spring is made of two different metals so that it will act the way you mentioned.
  18. Found a code for Oreilly CYBER20 20% off
  19. Parts manual exploded diagrams can really help too
  20. My 51 with the same basic drive train doesn't have a problem doing 55, I've had it to 70 but it's hollering there. I do have 3.91 rear gears so that might be different
  21. Don't like it, don't read it. Because, frankly here, no one wants to hear your whining.
  22. If this were a BMW the answer would be no, then you'd mount the bell and find out the flywheel won't go on. You'd have to mount them both at the same time but only if you used a special tool. Having changed the plugs on mine lately I am anti-BMW right now, lol. But to answer your question, I do not know.
  23. Ok, I confirmed the V8 outlets are 1 1/2" whereas ours are 1 3/4" Dayco sells reducers, part number 76950. 1 1/2 to 1 3/4. So you can reuse your stock hose, but the later outlet isn't as tall and your hose might be too short to reach.. $7 at summit racing But I found a molded hose that might work, Gates 20603. I went to RockAuto to price out hoses, found and off brand for like $4.11 and figuring since this was a mock up no sense paying the quality price right now. Shipping was $8.99 wow Decided on an aluminum outlet RA had a cheap one, remember it's a mock up, for $5.67, shipping was $9.99, different warehouse. Don't think so sparky. Amazon to the rescue. Delivered it was $0.29, used my rewards money, otherwise it was about $24 for the hose and outlet. I don't like reducers, just a mental thing, lol. One more thing, the V8 outlet that should work is 68 to 78 Mopar V8's, Mopar 1947427
