  1. Thanks for the comments guys. SHARPS40 the length is 29 1/2 damper to bellhousing flat surface hole. Mike's machine shop here in Oklahoma City does all the hot rod guys engines. He is the best and I don't have to worry about messing anything up. He will be painting the engine Chrysler red not the aluminum color my choice. I am painting all the brackets black so the engine will pop. See you.
  2. Pulled the motor today she was tired after all those years. She is heading to the machine for all new stuff. $2500-$3000
  3. Pulled the head and look what i found.
  4. Thanks for the advice everyone. I love this forum.
  5. 1948 Plymouth 218 compression test today not good. Its been backfiring real bad. So here is what I got starting with #1 cylinder. 90-30-0-80-60-70 not happy with #2 and # 3 cylinder readings. I did the oil test too. No change on 2 or 3. Called about a engine rebuild parts are $1450 and labor $1000. I am looking for a donor engine now.
  6. Yea for me, I figured it out, I have reverse, first , second and third. The first nut on first,reverse gear shifting transmission rod is the lock nut. The second one next to the swivel is the adjusting nut to take out the slack. I can't drive it today its raining. I moved it forward and back in the garage.
  7. Well I think I found my problem on the gearshift control rod. Both adjusting nuts were in the front of the lever. Washer and spring on backside of the arm. Why would both nuts be on the front of the rod??
  8. Ok guys I took off the bellhousing to get the pressure off my 48. put in a new clutch pressure plate and motor mounts. Now I have no reverse, had it before all this. Ok I have read all the post on here, but my question is, the back transmission C lever has a neutral they say. I can push it forward and backwards. Where is neutral on that C lever?? It doesn't click in neutral like the front lever. I have tried every angle on it with arm on an off. My next step is the column adjustment. This is a pain doing it by yourself. What am I missing. I want to go for a drive.
  9. My original oil pressure rubber hose to oil gage has finally rotted. I see Andy has them for $15 plus ship. Has anyone done anything different to replace it. I am not cheap just frugal.
  10. Sorry Don didn't have my coffee first. lol
  11. Thanks Dan , where do I get new pins.
  12. Is there a special washer that goes in the front rod turnbuckle hole. Mine looks oval and when adjusting the pedal, the rod moves for an aft when pedal is pushed before the dog bone moves??

    I have two of these that came off when I removed my bell housing. Bell housing is back on forgot where these went. I put the one for the fork spring on, but can't remember on these two.
  15. I need a pic of the left side of the bell housing with the clutch arm and shift bracket installed. Does the clutch arm and shift linkage arms bolt in the back two holes in the bell housing together. I also have 2 pointy brackets that go somewhere. I have a pointy bracket already installed for the clutch fork spring. 1948 Plymouth special deluxe.
