  1. As far as I know, five window plymouth coupe door will no fit onto a Dodge3 window coupe.
  2. I think that the photo may hve been from my post. I used one of those kits to fix the passenger door on my car. It worked great and is still functioning well. The kit can be flipped to the other side, but like itsays on the box the right front kit will work on the left rear... left front to right rear.
  3. For years I averaged around 1500 mi/yr but when I got the car inspected this last April it had only gone about 500 mi since last year. It is only 5 mi to the ice cream stand and with diabetes I don't eat as much ice cream as I used too.
  4. Ditto to what others have said, but if it is third gear it should go much faster than 40 mph. It's sluggihness could be because something is out of adjustment and youdo not really have it in third, or it may need fresh gas and a tune-up after sitting for years.
  5. I got seat belts from Juliano's. They have different colors to coordinate with your interior and they sell backing plates to go under the floor for anchoring points. I don't remember the length I bought, but my advise is to get the long ones.
  6. I noticed the same thing that Andyd did. I don't think it could be assembled backwards. However, if you loosened the bolts holding the top frame to the sides of the radiator mount I wonder if there is enough "slop" to allow you to straighten up the top frame. On the picture I posted you can see that the hole in the radiator mount is slotted.
  7. It is located by the front nose piece and the positon of yhe center strip.
  8. I couldn't get a good angle for a picture, but on my 48 Dodge the e-brake cable leaves the firewall, curves down through a clamp attached to the steering column, continues to curve down and passes over the transmission cross-over between the transmission mount and the transmission. I have no idea if that is the factory routing, but it seems to work. I've had the car 15 years and it has always been that way.
  9. I could open it on my ipad. He has a HF meter set to dc voltage and it reads 1888. The image does not show how the leads are plugged in.
  10. Casco was an aftermarket parts company. I think it stands for Connecticut Auto Supply Company. The visor on my Dodge coupe is by CASCO.
  11. I was thinking of taking mine apart to polish and straighten it, but it is spot welded together. Also the mounting tabson the back are not stainless and will rust. I picked up a spare that was strighter than the one I had but couldn' t use it because the mounting tabs were rusted off.
  12. 12 years ago I had the front bumper of my Dodge plated. When I got i back I decided to paint the backkside of the bumper with Por 15. No problem since then.
  13. you will probably get an answer if you posted this on the truck section of the forum.
  14. If you look at his first picture you can see he does not have a radio, but has two toggle switches in the radio knob positions.
  15. I'm 70 and haven't rebuilt an engine yet. Lots of other stuff,,, manifolds, rebuilt carburettors, engine mounts, cooling system,electrical, etc. but I have not dove into engine internals yet. Never say never, but right now my engine is running fine.
