  1. I have been looking for information on the 23 inch head that has the hump for the last hole in the Felpro head gasket 7564C. Is this head must have just a hump do to the shape of the gasket. I have used this gasket on my 1950 Dodge. it looks like everything else lines up, Matched the one I took off. What was this engine used for? Hope to learn more from all of you. Frank
  2. One thing that some do not know that the lug bolts were 9/16 not 1/2 inch like most. Some old Jeeps were also 5 on 5 1/2 bolt pattern i am not sure about the center hole. They look like they have no lip/ punched out or bored. James good luck to you. Frank
  3. Those look like the locks on my 1948 Desoto suburban
  4. Thanks for all the replies. I will leave it the way it was, just like Snipers. It will also look much cleaner. Frank
  5. Question, The routing for my heater hoses seams Backwards. They were from the control valve (Back of the head) to the bottom of the heater core. Then from the top of the heater core to the bypass at the top of the water pump. I am working om my 1950 Dodge Coronet with a model 100 heater box. I think the flow should be down. From the back of the head to the top of the heater core. cooler water going to the bypass at the top of the pump. Much longer hoses for this routing. I would like to hear any feedback or suggestions please. Frank
  6. I am in need of more help please. I am working on my 1950 Dodge Coronet. I am putting things back together, cleaned and painted. The thermostat is a NAPA P/N 155 is a three-piece unit by (Balkamp). The bell-shaped part is .080 bigger the then thermostat housing. Meaning this cannot be correct. I cannot find any information in the shop manual about this either. I did have to use a rubber mallet to remove the old one. What brands have some of you used? Frank
  7. Sniper, I also have one. Had it for a while i think i bough all the cap at that time but not sure about our cars. Works just fine and it will " make it a one-person job". good luck Frank
  8. Ii had a big block chevy that would do the same thing sound great then sputter idle rough. I found a broken valve spring. as the spring turned is would get tall sounded good then short sounded bad. Good luck. Frank
  9. Good chasebh50, I also have a 1950 Dodge Coronet with a Gyro matic. and i do not have a pedal or button on the floor like yours. This car has the dimmer on the left side of the clutch pedal. Hope this helps. Frank
  10. Thank you, this information this will help me in on going hunt.
  11. I am still looking for a Pilot house 1/2ton pickup. Can someone help me with the parts that are needed to swap a 23 inch for a 25 inch. The frames are the same, correct? Frank
  12. Is there someone the reproduces this part? I think the parts book shows only one base. Thank you
  13. Marc There is a small double male brass ferrule that is in the fuel tank fitting then a standard 5/16 tubing with a standard double flare will work. That what my 48 Desoto suburban looked like. And that is the same thing that is in my 1950 Dodge Coronet. Andys has the double ferrule for real cheap. I think i paid lee then ten dollars for two with shipping. My brake light switch is on the left frame rail, top touching the radiator support right in the corner also touching the inner fender. I will try to get a picture for you. Good luck
