  1. Sad news indeed. A great help to all here, including myself. Happy he shared his knowledge with us. Condolences to his family.
  2. On now toa productive topic. One winter project will be to assemble the dash so I can mount it in one piece. Now that engine is running, how can I test my amp gauge ? Where do the two terminal attached directly w/o the harness? What should it read in the off/ resting posiston ? What am I looking for while the engine runs? Thanks all Oil gauge is set up temp since my 1st start and is fine. Radimeter tested fine in boilng water on stove I'm not using the gas tank yet so I'll wait on that gauge for now.
  3. So many made but yes odds are low % remain active. We see junkers and parts cars on ebay, local ad's all the time. Probably more NON-running than running. I'll see if I can have any luck with Connecticut DMV. Not usually a user friendly branch of Govt. LOL ! So much time spent with thoughts of my project it just struck me as curious. Thanks all.
  4. Curiosity point. Is there any info available on how many P-15s or D24s there are still on the road?
  5. clay look up the gasket number in your parts book and let me know the mopar number. I will look in my McCord and Victor gasket catalog for a number. I knew someone else had asked about this same gasket and I was able to find a gasket number.

  6. I'll try it . See if it covers that gap.
  7. This is the BOTTOM section of my Air filter Housing. I have marked the underside around the throat that feeds the carb. There is a gap between the body and throat here that is open to the inside of the housing. It is hollow inside, and I have bits of rust rattling around in there. I have shaken some out but some remain. ? - Will these rusty bits get sucked into the carb ? ? - Is there a purpose for the opening? ? - Should I plug it up ? Has anyone delt with this ? Thanks all ! Clay
  8. After about a dozen start ups on my rebuilt 230 I re-torqued ( at running temp. ) the 21 head bolts as directed in manual. That went fine , however several days later I noticed # 1 spark plug recess was filled with antifreeze. Mopped it up, and waited a few more days, full again. So I have re-torqued the two thermo housing bolts. They were well below the torque specs. Makes sense after some thought. The head was lowered away from the thermo bolts. Hope this does the trick so I can avoid draining and changing the thermo gasket. FYI for you rebuilders.
  9. Yes, thought I had it a few times but more nudging was required. Good thought. I'll hold off on the grill until I'm sure of the horns.
  10. Still tweaking parts ahead of assembly . Dual Horns - Auto-Lite HT 4007 and HT 4008 all cleaned, painted , and adjusted. No sound after 30+ years of sitting, and 40+ years of use prior to that. Fine file, and emery cloth on contacts. Then followed service manual instructions, turning adjt screw slightly till sound is steady. Easy task if you don't drop and loose any of the tiny pieces !
  11. Clay. I posted the Miller MT19 on the Desoto facebook and listed the tool for $550. There isa person up near Levittown, Pa north of Philly and is close to me he is interested in the tool.  So is the price of $550 good for you?  I know we tried to get a higher price at Hershey, but at least you will get your investment money back on this deal.

     

    I left you a voice message on your company phone on Sunday night.  Call me during the daytime on Monday  cell 484-431-8157.

  12. Clayton:

    I will be arriving at Hershey on Wednesday morning and then will go out looking for parts and those very special Miller tools, so hope to beat you to them. just kidding.  I plan to have my spot open on Thursday and Friday.  The last price I saw on Ebay for the Ammco brake tool which was complete was 750.

     

    Looking forward to seeing you again and we can setup the tool to see if we can sell it.
