  1. Sounds like your vacuum motor needs help. To rebuild or replace this under dash unit can be almost as expensive as a switch to electric.
  2. I built mine to drive and do at least once a week. I must say there are some fine looking MOPARS in this thread. Jim M Clover,SC
  3. The world needs more speedsters. I'll watch your progress. Jim M
  4. Did you change the condenser? Try and find an American one as the Chinese replacements are poor.
  5. I think you are looking for a Andy part number L-226 $15.00 listed under engine. Jim M
  6. I chased a dash rattle that turned out to be the drivers side defroster vent. You will have good access to it while the dash is out. Be pro active. It's hard to tighten after the fact. Jim M
  7. PFLAMING, Can you get to the reservoir by taking the seat cushion out? Jim M
  8. This will be my first purchase when I win the lottery. Jim M
  9. What is that small filter on the firewall ? Jim M
  10. Blaine, Welcome aboard. The fact you are Navy caught my attention as I was in 1961 to 1964 and had a 1950 Plymouth, of course mine was only fourteen years old at the time. Jim M
  11. Mike, I used Bernbaum rubbers on some of my repairs. I think you are going to have to go frame off to get to all the hidden places. Here are some pictures that might help. Jim M
  12. Hubler13f, Locust Gap caught my attention as I grew up in Mt. Carmel. I'll be traveling there next week and wondered who is in the Gap? Jim M
  13. I bought a floor shifter from J C Whitney for my '50 Plymouth in the early 60's that worked well but had a reverse pattern. In trying to figure yours out , do you push down to select reverse/first? Jim M
  14. It takes time, planning and patience. Marking the car-headliner center line is important. The cut for the rear window made me pucker. The visors can be tricky. Good luck, Jim M
  15. I had generator/regulator problems. Did some math ($) and switched to an alternator. End of issue. The main thing that makes modern cars so reliable is good electronics. If you plan to drive a lot it's the way to go. Jim M
  16. Sorry for the lack of info Dodgeb4ya. The Plymouth carb is a Carter B&B D6 G1A8, The military carb is a Carter B&B, 0 781 (see picture). My research makes me wonder if the D-24 came with a Stromberg?
  17. I would like to know the main jet size for a '48 Dodge. My car, a 1948 Plymouth is a bit of a Frankenstein in that it has a 1942 dodge war surplus motor with it's original Plymouth carb. I can tell it's lean by the way it runs and a plug check. the main jet is a 256. I also have the original military carb that has a 314 main jet which I tried. It helps but may be a bit rich. Does anyone have any info on jet sizes. Jim Magennis
  18. In 1963 my 1950 Plymouth six expired so I put a 1955 Plymouth V8 in and moved the steering box into the frame for clearance which maintained center. Maybe a bad idea but it worked for years. Jim M
  19. You have your work cut out for you but it's better than some rust buckets people attack. As for knees I can relate some horror stories. I suffered for years with knee and leg pain. I got sick a few years ago lost ten pounds and my knee pain went away. Time can be a good healer.
  20. I used this grease to stop my steering leak. John Deere Special-Purpose Corn Head Gun Grease - AN102562 Jim M
  21. That white with stock chrome is fabulous.
  22. i believe the short wheelbase P22 included the Suburban,Fast back and 3 window business coupe. The P23 was the 2 and 4 door sedans.
