  1. Does anybody have good sources on parts for the stock brakes on my 1941 sedan? I checked into Andy Bernbaum but wondering if there are other options in a reasonable price range. I would like to do all the hardware, wheel cylinders, master cylinder and shoes. Part numbers would be fabulous if anyone has some! Many thanks!
  2. A punch and hammer *tink*. Plug came out! Thanks again for all the advice!
  3. I did not see any weld threads from the bottom. It’s smooth. Sounds like I should go with that port rather than modifying the pan. I will take a peek at the old engine to see which dipstick was in there that I will be reusing. Thank you for all the help. I will let you know how it turns out.

  5. That’s a great question. How to I know and how do I get it out? It’s not threaded. Apologies for being a newb.
  6. I think it already has a breather on the other side. I guess two wouldn’t hurt.
  7. To drill or to weld, that is the question. I am still working on my engine replacement in my 1941 Plymouth Sedan. The replacement engine is a tad newer and out of a truck. I found that the oil pan is different, front sump and I need a rear sump. Here is where I am stuck; the incorrect oil pan has a dipstick in it, the block does not. Do I try to modify my correct oil pan and weld a dip stick in it or do I drill out the port in the engine that’s been welded shut? Is it okay/safe to drill the block?
  8. Would anybody have a 1946-1948.5 Plymouth convertible the could obtain a bow height for the rear curtain? We are putting a new top on ours and the old one was not correct. Many thanks in advance for any assistance..
  9. Apologies for the confusion. I have two housings and three different thermostats. It’s a bit of mess trying to piece things together. Thank you for the pointers. I think I can find what I need.
  10. That thermostat is just not right. Anyone know a part number for this one?
  11. You guys are awesome and full of knowledge! I blew the camshaft out of the oil pan on my other motor in December on my way to my sisters to bake cookies. Not sure what the cause was yet, motor is still in the car. Attempting to get the replacement up to snuff and doing everything I can to prevent that mayhem again. Keep the knowledge flowing!
  12. Does this look correct? Seems to me the t-stat should sit down in the head.
  13. Attempting to put a new thermostat in a 218. Is the new one pictured an update? If so, any ideas on how it goes together?
  14. Thank you for the advice! I will check the oil pump when the engine is assembled closer to completion. I have Permatex for the water pump. Just wanted to be certain it would be okay to use.
  15. Greetings and salutations! Currently I’m doing an engine swap on a 1941 Plymouth sedan, no updates, still a 218. Using the original service manual has answered most of my questions. I am stuck on a few things. One, what kind of gasket sealer should I use on the new water pump? Two, how do I know if an oil pump is good with the engine on a stand? Many thanks for any help!
