  1. Speedway probably stocks about a dozen and Allied probably has hundreds, thus the price difference. (Speedway might even get theirs from Allied!) Both units appear to have the same specs, so either should do. “They” say the resistors get really hot in use; maybe you should go with a higher wattage unit. Same voltage and current ratings and ohmic values, but higher watt rating to handle/dissipate the heat. And mount it on a heat sink of some kind (hunk of aluminum flat bar) where it will get some air flow. Use heat sink compound, also.

  2. can anyone tell me where I can procure some O.D. Parts. Putting O.D. In ‘50 Plymouth coupe and need a kick down sw. w/mounting bracket and operating linkage. Also need an O.D. Relay and might as well replace the horn relay. I checked Roberts to no avail. Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

  3. My 50 SD coupe has a model 550 heater unit. There is a capillary tube from the defroster duct to the water control unit under the dash. What is the purpose of that and how can I test it to see if it is properly "doing its thing"?

  4. I'm installing the water pump and the thermostat housing. The bolts protrude into the water jackets. What should I use to seal the bolt threads. Will plumbers Teflon tape work? I also have some white teflon thread goop. How about never-sieze? Thanks for any help.
