  1. I use any pipe thread sealant with ptfe.
  2. I haven’t used this particular style of needle & seat, but in general, Daytona parts have worked well for me.
  3. The correct AC plug looks to be a R45. Not sure how that differs from your R45S.

    Andy Bernbaum and Vintage Power Wagons are a couple of good sources.
  5. Thanks for the history lesson...always interesting.
  6. My '57 Plymouth also uses the 1080.
  7. He stated that the hole is 0.877”, so far too small.
  8. I would normally agree with Los Control about the mis-boxed part possibility. But in this case, the dimensions listed for the correct part number match the bushing he has. It’s the dimension of his crank that is off. That’s what makes it such a mystery to me.
  9. That’s what I was thinking too, but AB shows the same bushing for all years and engine sizes. From what the OP told us, the ID in his crank is not even close. I’m not sure where to go from here...
  10. Not sure what’s going on. To my knowledge, these engines all used the same bushing (someone please correct me if I’m wrong). The new bushing is listed as having a 0.941” OD, so it sounds like you have the right one. Does the hole in crank look clean?
  11. I had the springs re-arched years ago on a 67 Plymouth. In less than a year, they had settled right back down to where they started.
  12. I would suggest Espo Springs n Things.
  13. It is well known that the oil pan end gaskets will stick up above the pan surface and should not be trimmed. However, the FSM says they should stick up about 1/8". Mine (Felpro) stick up more than 5/16" above the surface, which is well over 1/8". So in this case, should they be trimmed to match what the FSM says?
  14. I went to the local Fastenal, which has the widest selection in our town, and they didn't have a replacement. Close, but not close enough. They had nothing closer available to order, either. Believe me, coming on here and bothering other members for one was not my first choice! 🙂 But, I'm very grateful that Keith stepped forward with his offer.
