  1. Lots of good info there.....thanks fellows.
  2. darn-------now....i need to check the tube i bought from bernbaum a few months ago. it is regular metal and was coated with that good old military stuff......cosmoline. Removed it with paint thinner.
  3. Hi everyone. Hope you all are doing OK in the midst of this virus business. My question is: is there one BRAND of 6 volt headlight bulb (for a 47 Plymouth) that is any better or brighter than another. Not talking about the halogen....just the regular kind. The halogens I have on the car currently need a relay to cut down on voltage draw but I haven't gotten in the mood to tackle that project. So am thinking of simply purchasing a couple new bulbs to replace them. We have a few auto stores here: O'Reilly, NAPA, & Auto Zone to choose from. Or, there is the internet. And......what gauge of wire is best for headlights. I re-did my wiring to the lights quite a while back.......think I used the gauge mentioned in the repair manual. Thanks for any input. Bob.
  4. One way to get a different, outside opinion is your local generator shop (auto electric place). They deal with such stuff regularly and might be able to do some tests with their equipment. They may charge for their services, but it might possibly determine the problem. I am thinking about visiting my local shop who can test for generator output and other things. I don't have equipment at home for testing. Just my 2 cents worth.
  5. Hmmmm. Don't recall ever seeing a mirror just like this. The clamp part looks old. Did that vertical section on outer edge have mirror in it also?
  6. Eneto -- I can relate to the "put it somewhere" thing. It may be in one of my bunch of plastic storage boxes....or maybe not. LOL. I have typed notes that hang on the end of the boxes nowadays......but I need to go thru all of them and re-organize at least some of them. I also started using zip lock plastic freezer bags to group certain things, with notes written on them. Yep....need further grouping with other stuff. One thing I do currently is -- when I buy some Plymouth part, book, or whatever -- I write the price on it that I paid, as well as date purchased (and sometimes where purchased). The item may not sell for as much after I'm gone, but the wife and son-in-law will have an idea of it's worth if they decide to hold a sale. I realize the above has nothing to do with glass for your dash.....but I would recommend glass over plexiglass.
  7. Andy.....do you use Photobucket to store your pictures? I use them......and lately have been receiving messages about paying for certain plans.....and they sometimes over ride your picture with a logo thing when they are transferred to a forum. They seem to want more money from their users nowadays. I pay about $98 per year which I consider plenty. So I have been messaging their problem solver person stating that I already pay and don't want to pay for anything more. That person has usually replied he does not know why I get those messages and to ignore them. Lately a sales message has been appearing when I open up my account with various ads appearing all over things.....to avoid them, I have been signing in each time even though it should not be necessary, and that seems to get me away from the ads.
  8. No....is not the same Sam. I looked to see -- thanks for that info.
  9. Has anyone looked at the "Plymouth 1938-1954 Part Interchange Guide" by F.D. Harper---being sold on eBay? I bought one just for fun, but don't see much that many Plymouth parts will change with besides Dodge. Some things work between other Mopar brands, as we all know. Just wondering if anybody had an opinion on this $47 book.

  12. Just F Y I......i put some information about a source of auto fasteners and hardware that I found in my collection of business cards. It is on the "referrals" page where it should be. I presume they are still in business as I haven't purchased from them lately. Just trying to add another possible parts source in case not many have seen it. Not sure how many regularly check referrals page.....so just a hopefully helpful note.
  13. I was looking thru a box of business cards I've had for a while......found this one.......I think I bought something from them quite a while back (can't recall what or when). Putting the info on here in case it might help someone. A. E.

Contact them at resto-parts@comcast.net They say make checks payable to: A.E. Medeiros 80 Freetown St. Lakeville, MA 02347 Hope this might help someone find a needed part.
  14. Looks like the threaded studs might be replacable on that piece, Rob.
  15. One local auto supply (O'Reilly) has a container of gear lube marked "80w 90" weight. On my 47 Plymouth the book says 90 weight for the differential and 80 weight for the transmission. Man at the auto supply said this oil should be OK for both. Otherwise you have to shop around for the single weight stuff. Sounds logical to me. Think I will use the 80/90 in the trans.
