  1. The Studebaker engine was designed by the same group of engineers. It does look very similar but I don't believe anything interchanges.
  2. The trouble with that is the modern parts aren't always better than the original stuff.
  3. That's a small amount usually there's 4-5 times that much in a worn out engine.
  4. I'd say that gunk in the bottom is lead from old school leaded gas.
  5. Funny I was thinking it sounded like a car...
  6. That leads me to a thought. Clearly the engineering group was using the letter and # combinations for models. T,V,W for 39-47 and then starting over with B in 48. So job rated and pilot house is probably stuff dreamed up by the marketing folks so no wonder there is overlap
  7. The job rated series is 39-47 but the tricky part is the term continued to be used afterwards
  8. Look straight up from the bottom of the chrome switch panel to see the screw Plymouthy described.
  9. Yes that's your voltage regulator with 3 connections. Plymouth went elec wipers in 51
  10. I believe in the 50s they switched to a special headbolt that was threaded for a smaller bolt to hold the positive cable.
  11. Way back I found an article about someone adaptive full size ram brakes to their Dakota. Might get more options or at least the bigger full size brakes and then the 5 on 4.5 pattern if someone has a newer Dakota.
  12. Ya good times we had 3 cars there. My sis and bro in law drove my dad's 64 fury.
  13. I don't have a pic but I believe for at least #1 and 2 style pictured the clips are part of the hubcap. Which makes sense that those wheels don't have holes drilled for clips
  14. Nice like the artillery wheels. I'd say a truck that nice is worthy of a new bumper:) I do have a factory rear on my 46 but like I said they arent easily found. I wish I had video of the junkyard when I got mine. The yard owner had to cut it off and we watched him come bouncing down the dirt paths with the bumper laying on the roof of his beater yard car.
  15. Way back on the forum someone adapted more modern drums and backing plates if I remember correctly first gen mustang Edit: likely backing plates and hardware with original drums to retain axle mount and lug holes
