  1. Well it looks like you got your money’s worth out of the 237. Good luck installing the 251. Take your time and it will all be good.
  2. Well, how many miles did the 237 have on it when it decided to grenade? What were you taching? Must have really gotten your attention.
  3. Easy way to tell a synchronized from a non-synchronized PH 4 speed is to look at the drain plug. A synchronized unit has the drain plug running horizontal at the bottom rear of the case while a non-synchronized unit has the drain plug running at an angle in the same general area. At least that is what the parts book shows talks about.
  4. I believe the ratios available in a 1950 1 ton were 3.91, 4.30 and 4.89 with the 4.30 being the standard ratio and the other two being an option. The 4.10 ratio was available in late 1951 or early 1952 and the 3.91 ratio was dropped at that time. The 3.91, 4.10 and 4.30 ring and pinion sets are pretty much unobtainable, but the 4.89 ratio set is available from Midwest Military I believe.
  5. The TDC mark must line up with the pointed arrow on the timing case cover.
  6. Thanks For the Info T120. Much appreciated.
  7. Thanks for the compliment Radarsonwheels. Desoto39, what brand and or part numbered spark plug do I need for this head. Thanks for any advice.
  8. Here two photos of an Aluminum Head I picked up a few years ago. Soon, I hope to install it on the IND-7(236.6) which is installed in my WC 1/2 ton Military 4x4. it will save me weight over the 41' Spifire head I have on it now, and it has been shaved down for some higher compression. I have bought a Chrysler steel head gasket as they say to use steel instead of cooper.
  9. Is it a real ball bearing type or a bushing type bearing?
  10. Yes, the 3.91 and 4.10 1 ton ratio’s are very hard to find. The VD & WD 1 ton trucks could be ordered with the 3.91 also, but again very rare. The only other option is to find a 54-56 Functional Design 1 Ton or the 57-59 Power Giant 3/4 ton or 1 ton 4x2 trucks with the 4.10 ratio. I have 4.30’s in my 1941WC 1/1 ton Military 4x4 along with the larger 900-16 tires. With the T-118 IND-7(236) in it I can cruise at about 60 with the Tach showing around 2500 RPM’s. Small hills I can keep it in 4th, anything more than that it’s downshifting time. I do have a set of 4.10 third members which I plan on installing in the truck one of these days and return to the original 750-16 tires. It will increase the RPM’s about 200 or so, but the smaller tires and wheels will save weight thus more pick up and less shifting on hills.
  11. From what I have read, all Canadian built Mopars use the 25 & 1/4” block where as the US built Mopars used the 23 & 1/4” block for the Dodge and Plymouth’s and the 25 & 1/4” block for the Chrysler and Desoto’s.
  12. Did you use Permatex 2 or similar on both sides of the gasket before installation? Another trick is to apply a small bead around the the outer edge of an oil seal before installation. On splined yokes etc I apply Permatex#2 on the splines before Installation as gear oil can work it’s way through the splines and leak through the washer and retaining nut. Half the fun is trying to have a 100% leak free vehicle. LOL.
  13. The post-war Power Wagon was available up to 1978. The VC 1/2 ton military 4x4 was built in 1940, the WC 1/2 ton military 4x4 was built in 1941 up to about the middle to end of April 1942 at which time the WC 3/4 ton military 4x4 series were produced for the duration of the war.
  14. Yes. That is puller the puller I was talking about. Bought one about 6 years ago used and like I said well worth the money.
