  1. I would really like to see where it's printed. No future owners will have problems with my car, as 7 it's not covered in manuals related to the model. Author has 3 projects and only one is post war πŸ˜€ Conclusion, all 3 grumpy old men are right. 7 o'clock position was not mentioned until 1949/50 probably to streamline diagnostic procedure as you both mention. Maybe flipped distributor is not a correct word. Rotate? Turned? Notice vacuum chamber. See attached picture of before 49 and after. Why ?
  2. These pumpkins are different. As far as I know, no one makes parts for them.
  3. From the manual 12. REMOVAL OF MASTER CYLINDER. - Disconnect the brake line tubes at the master cylinder. Disconnect brake pedal from master cylinder. Remove the bolts which attach master cylinder to chassis and lift out the master cylinder assembly.
  4. 2 threads with MoPar batteries. That's confusing but ok. Wait till you guys see mine when I'm done πŸ˜‰ I'll be posting photos on the older thread.
  5. Nah....Dodge truck did not sport these flashy batteries LOL
  6. No never because none of my books say anything about 7 so it will never confuse me. What's more strange why the flipped the distributor 180 degrees in 1949/50
  7. @Plymouthy Adams Of course I don't have all the editions of manuals. I do have the 1937-42 up to P14 manual and no, nothing about 7. See attached pdf. @Los_Control LOL this drawing is all wrong. My wires are not 90 degrees 🀣 Agree, oil pump at TDC as in manual, but what I meant is, if someone forgot or turned the crank, no harm is done, just make sure firing at 1 and its not wrong Pages from 1936-1942 Plymouth Shop Manual.pdf
  8. No your Volvo was working correct. My dad's Volvo was the same. Although I never let of the gas when pressing the OD button. I actually have one of these OD lying around. but I'm not going to use it it. Not messing with my propeller shaft. ☺️
  9. I'm a bit puzzled by your answer. Maybe I'm not understanding you. At a point you acknowledge the position doesn't matter , but then you come back to do it correct . What do you define as do it correct ? I have now gone through, Plymouth, DeSoto and Chrysler shop manual and there is noting about 1 0r 7. or correct way.. I don't know who came up with this. Only text I could find was this: When installing the distributor assembly on the engine, see that number one piston is at top dead center on compression stroke and the distributor rotor is in number one firing
  10. Not on stone, nor on paper. Any position will work as longs as #1 cylinder fires at TDC.
  11. Difficult to say not knowing what has been done. Running 12 v? Loose connection? Faulty sender ?
  12. Did they now or is this just what we are told ? My 1941 Chrysler Part List shown the MoPar battery in the list. Not Willard. It could be Willard internals, but the casing was so much different. But agree, why are there no MoPar batteries left somewhere? Maybe it's like today, no one buys OEM batteries. Too expensive πŸ˜€
  13. And neither did the author of Hemmings battery article. Pre war life always seem to an undercommented mysterious gray zone for us living now.
  14. It's shop manual covering pre war Chryslers. It's a pdf of 300 pages with nice drawings. I can upload it to you if you have ftp or dropbox. Pages from Chrysler Shop Manual C28 C30 C33 C34 C36 C37 C38 C39 C40.pdf
