  1. Looks like Bernbaum sells the rear rubber tail pipe insulator piece that goes up between the cross support at the rear. the metal parts are OK, so looks like the rear hanger is solved. But there is a mid way hanger with a rubber insulator that I can't find. https://www.ebay.com/itm/184341186539?_trkparms=amclksrc%3DITM%26aid%3D111001%26algo%3DREC.SEED%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20160908105057%26meid%3D45c4fed26b2b4034ba5e705678d72e3a%26pid%3D100675%26rk%3D3%26rkt%3D15%26sd%3D384461558746%26itm%3D184341186539%26pmt%3D0%26noa%3D1%26pg%3D2380057%26brand%3DMopar&_trksid=p2380057.c100675.m4236&_trkparms=pageci%3Aa454471b-7a7d-11ec-a0a5-9aa5987126d7|parentrq%3A7b2d136617e0a4d496d9f5e2ffffa470|iid%3A1
  2. I wonder of something like this would work? https://www.ebay.com/itm/113641816576?epid=1639903494&_trkparms=ispr%3D1&hash=item1a75948200:g:92AAAOSwy2NcZg3O&amdata=enc%3AAQAGAAACoPYe5NmHp%2B2JMhMi7yxGiTJkPrKr5t53CooMSQt2orsSR84A%2FGMxXIqJzFmDq6lDLuuo%2BiLL4yp9V7ounJWJXqaZYOvm62KNOF5DHA25l6Skc1Lf%2Bsozn72mtbeBtugkQGrz0NAvFhP%2BpNJENundv%2FWp1XgowtaaCJo8XrgrTh4b27ab3VyxVfp%2FwREtBc4umrdHpGN7I%2FANkAGhjsulJOdWtZsnnvrZjp7esb7Odtath6O4Jr1PBTy3cMPXcVsMexqgewVQ%2FapxWvS%2FI9Y2I3XUiKfMiJA3j0%2FKQsS8aah%2BFvxm7iguDEwrgWN3qrRr%2Bh3D3MksGwJj6928doSIxJFLji%2Bzg9xDmfTF02fi7oFtrzgWKHF%2BJMDgSIW5rROWgxsPsutAhx3o6ooRrjDqOmQEY5kV2Xg%2FCqLI4fHdYvFkGjotHmOOraxFqPdhtK1pxPBSk9EgyuFZaUOy74dRm3JHQG9%2F%2BqS4aUO0c9SYrpizMw7vGFPJ%2B3orF1%2B0eWzbyT6cIPDGvH%2FCc3EfwsMx2LYOvSJ4zqz5ba93koNqBm8iwzGQIpot3AGQ%2B7LgMZRxfZeyxrJMAnRMcZu%2Fwu0NEEwqpfaTlwo977aUTnBDMt%2F1AHFiIV4CSbC3zJxQcFpclq8JgikbcQ%2B89lsn5CbxP3zwXbMX6lXEKXUTAsliPyL9O6I107E5kFLS8EcfmT43aQNEVaonIXOLYGY65ooO3FNQ3skRnsR6MoJWQ8pKmmhVC%2B3PjRf%2BW6r2Z7cfJQsB0AlHOiW5Bt1ZKmKAWacdbHpJ8fa%2BCGMCLQTkjjSuQJvzFLLj%2FoUwHfXPJXCBugNbekDw75kVPv5fDaXcHplOsJpMWAE3715O%2F3QH1mvDLYfFZwSD4LfUsdyTuR9i3O6wzw%3D%3D|clp%3A2334524|tkp%3ABFBM5rHor89f
  3. I'm re-hanging my exhaust system now, and realized that the hangers are a bit too loose toward the rear. The two hangers toward the rear of the tail pipe have rubber parts that are worn and loose. Does anyone sell these hangers? I checked Bernbaum's and he doesn't sell exhaust parts anymore. Thanks.
  4. Okay, here's the answer. The plastic light-up lady hood ornament came out in 1942 models, both Deluxe and Custom. In the post war S-11 models, the Custom models had the plastic ornament, but may have also had the chrome lady. The DeLuxe models were all chrome. I have both types for my 48 DeSoto Deluxe. I also have the bracket that screws onto the bottom of the base that holds the light bulb for the plastic ornament. I have one complete plastic lady, and some pieces of another. They are very hard to find in good condition. i think someone reproduced a few of them at some point, but that was some 25 to 30 years ago!
  5. OK, I took the brake lines off of my brake line switch and installed where it goes on top of the frame near the radiator on the driver side. Does it look like it's on right as far as its orientation? Also, does it matter which hole the rear brake line goes in, upper or lower?
  6. Oh thanks. I never thought about that. I guess I'll have to go without the line covers.
  7. So a little modification there. Thanks so much for your pics and explanation. I wonder if I should buy new jackets for the brake and fuel lines or just slide the old ones off and reuse them?
  8. Thanks, any pics! What do you mean when you say "mine was on the pan"? Did you mean on top of the frame?
  9. Bryan, excellent pics! They really are better than a thousand words. Marc. 😁
  10. Thanks Sam. I just want to clear something up. I am using 3/16" brake line for my Brakes. I am asking about using 5/16" brake line for my new fuel line, which is 5/16" pipe. I just don't want to invest in a flaring tool for a couple of flares.
  11. Can I use 5/16" brake line to use for my new fuel line? I know some pride themselves for doing their own double flaring, but I prefer to use pre-flared line. Thanks.
  12. Don't Worry, be happy! Los Control and thanks for your input! Bryan, I guess a 48 Dodge is a bit different on the location of the switch. I believe mine is on the top of the front cross over frame near the radiator support like a couple of others said. That's where there are two holes that would fit the switch bolt hole and hook. It looks like the fuel line and brake line share brackets when going across the front of the frame. Could you shoot a couple more pics that show how the brake and fuel lines on the front passenger side of the frame? Thanks!
  13. Bryan, these are not pics of your 48 Dodge, are they? These are pics of Los Control's pickup, I think.
  14. Thank you Frank and Joe. Since you have a DeSoto, albeit, a Suburban, and Joe has a 47 Chrysler, I think you must be right on. I also watched the 1948 Mr. Tech filmstrip on the hydraulic system and it shows a drawing of the brake lines, which shows the switch on the left front part of the frame. I wonder what that hook thing is for? Maybe there is a hole in the frame that anchors it and the bolt hole to bolt it tight.
  15. Is your Chrysler a 6 or an 8? Keith, That's your fuel line on top right? So your fuel line and brake line screw into the same junction?
