  1. On my 1950 chryslers I don't generally use the hood release handle...I found it quicker and easier to reach thru the grille and pull the cable. Just the way I've done it for years. A 49 Chrysler not possible😕
  2. I love the sound of the screaming Jimmy! A 10 speed OD Road Ranger would make the truck sound and drive just about right. Just keep a bag of diapers for what DD's like to do...leak oil😂
  3. Beautiful car! The original rocker mouldings clip # is..1256010....the car uses 12 of them. BTW The 1949 Chrysler parts book is a one year only. Chrysler only..not Dodge Ply etc. Some what hard to find an original print book.
  4. That's true on the 323 chrysler 8's. On the sixes not so other than the 4 brass 3/8" thick exh manifold expansion/ contraction washers.
  5. Some of the last carbureted cars (early 80's ) used a electric heater grid plate under the carb for better warm up emission control.
  6. PM me your email.and I'll send clear big pics..
  7. I cannot even find that type of head in any 1957-60 DT parts/service books.🤔
  8. Single rocker shafts and stands un bolt from the heads. On the dual shaft hemi's the 10 head bolts hold the stands..
  9. I used the Imperial Eastman tool with the wing nuts for years with excellent results on regular brake/fuel line tube. The 6" long 1/4" diamter handle on the screw press was made to fit the large wing nuts to tighten them fully. After years of using it the tool would not hold the tube tight enough as it bowed from wear...I found a quick solution was to use the bench vise to clamp the tube and die in the vice....tight...no slipping of the tube being double flared anymore.
  10. I've worked on several Chrysler mid 50's thru early 60's Imperial and 300 cars. Frame off resto's. Absolutely amazing on some of the costs involved for a very high quality correct restoration. DIY way cheaper.
  11. I had a guy in need of a D24 needle bearing knuckle. He brought it in and I had a standard bushing knuckle...measured both types and found the needle bearing knuckle bore was larger than the bushing bore knuckle. Couldn't help him in his hunt for the needle knuckle.
  12. I've had my Master Tool flaring set for 10 years and have done tons of double flares. Even 3/8" stainless. Flawless flares. Costly tool though.
