  1. Some people, most, perhaps, drill out the rivet that you mention on the outside. I had already removed the door panels, glass, window roller mechanism, etc., so I removed the pin on the inside of the door. I don't remember for sure now, as that was over 40 years ago, but I doubt I had to drill anything out on the inside of the door. I'm thinking there was either a cotter pin, or some other type of pin there. (My project stalled after 1982, so the car is still not reassembled. It is now a retirement project, I guess.)
  2. I had the body off of my 46 Plymouth in 1980. I cleaned up and reused the original body mounts. As I recall, I ran them over the wire wheel, to remove road dirt, etc. - basically to make them look nice again. Then the car sat inside ever since. I moved it from Oklahoma where it was in hibernation about 2 1/2 years ago, to here in Ohio. We used a flat bed trailer, and since the windows were out, we wrapped it in that wide "saran wrap" people use in shipping pallets of stuff. So anyway, I was under the car, passing the roll back out for my son-in-law to go over the top (again & again).
  3. Has anyone ever seen any information regarding the OEM durameter ratings for the different rubber parts?
  4. Also, under trim.
  5. It can also be a point of contention with one's wife..... (I have an "ability" to see potential in nearly every odd bit that comes into my possession. She was fine with it when we lived in the jungle, and that broken valve on the portable shower tank would have required a very expensive air plane flight to replace. But I had enough odds & ends laying around that I was able to fix it. One of the parts I used was part of a Bic pen, and another was a small plate from my daughter's toy box. But we would not have called the plane in for that valve - it would have meant going back to bathin
  6. I have the additional problem that I sometimes take the tools (or whatever) that i think is here in the house up to my (rented) shop, and then I look in both places, but never know where I used it last. (I've stopped "accusing" family members of taking stuff - too often when it DOES finally show up again, I realize that it was "yours truly" who left it there.) We also still have stuff stored in two different places in Brazil, in two different states, actually. AND, I've also lost stuff in my parents' house back in Oklahoma where I grew up, but the house has now been sold, so unless it got m
  7. Speaking of boats, some friends of ours from Brazil recently bought a place in the country somewhere in Florida. The wife tried to pick up a piece of metal in the yard, and it was stuck fast. They started digging, and discovered a boat had been buried there. (I don't think they have found any bodies, but it can make you wonder.)
  8. Do both styles have the safety bead feature? If not, I would guess that those that don't are another make. (I don't know when other makes adopted that feature as well, but it has always been my understanding that Chrysler invented it.)
  9. Sometimes I see where I've put a certain tool, maybe for months or years it has "belonged" there. Then I get some hair-brained idea that it should REALLY be some place else. Bad idea. Then I can never find it again, until I just happen to find it by accident, while looking for something else I've misplaced. But it has one big advantage - I've stopped accusing family members of having taken the tool (or whatever) that I'm currently looking for. (Only rarely anymore do I find that it really was someone else who "didn't put it back where it belongs, for crying out loud.")
  10. I have had three MoPar mini-vans to date, a 93 Chrysler Town & Country (3.3, like yours), a 2000 T & C (3.8. More power for the Missouri hills, but less MPG as well), and now a 2010 Dodge Grand Caravan 4.0). The 93 was definitely my favorite. Total class. The best designed mini-van ever (in my opinion). Unfortunately, the salt got it, so I had to let it go. Well, actually I could't let it go to anyone else. We drove it till it wouldn't go anymore, with parts of it falling off underneath. I cut it up with a saws-all. (Actually hauled it all to the scrap yard in an S-10 PU - sev
  11. How much pressure would you get on the exhaust like that, if, say, it was a connection for an air hose, to air up tires? Would it be enough? (I assume that others here have seen the air hose you could connect (temporarily) in place of one spark plug. That's what made me think of this now. I hadn't looked back at this thread since before the side view photos were posted, and those fins look like they're designed to reduce heat.)
  12. I'm confused. Did they take off .0070, which is what you wrote (which is 7 thousands), or .0700 (which is 70 thousands)? (Normally 70 thousands would be written as .070.)
  13. I'm afraid he got you, by adding an extra zero at the end.
  14. My dad's 53 had a red cab & black box. My Grandpa's 51 was the same. Seems that red has been a Dodge color a long time before the Ram came out.
  15. I suspect that most people, when they see them, they just think it's a bolt. I'm pretty sure that all differentials have them. (Don't have a 'modern' car with rear wheel drive anymore - my wife just likes FWD, so I cannot go out & look, to verify this for myself.)
