  1. Years ago I sprayed my 48 Plymouth clock with electronic contact cleaner then oiled it with clock oil. I also soldered a diode across the points to keep them from arcing.
  2. I drove the 48 convertible I had in 1993 from Battle Creek Michigan to Plymouth MA then to Bar Harbor Maine. We drove 65 mph most of the trip. The car ran good at that speed. I also drove that car to Rapid City SD in 2000 and Washington DC. I put 15000 miles on it in 7 years. Then I bought a 48 club coupe that I put an overdrive in. Drove that car to Killington Vermont and to Concord North Carolina. With the overdrive I got 21 mpg and it would drive 70 all day long. JohnS
  3. Have a good trip. I'm glad you're enjoying our state. I always love Mackinac Island. I won't be able to make Detroit I'd like to see the Chrysler Museum. JohnS
  4. I've used 2 Daytona kits. They have a better design float valve that keeps the float level even.
  5. The T10 is a Borg Warner overdrive. I got my rebuild parts from Northwest Transmission. I don't have the address and phone number by the computer but can look it up if needed.
  6. When I rebuilt my R 10 overdrive I got all my parts from Northwest Transmission.
  7. I soldered a diode across the points of my P-15 clock to prevent arcing. It ran well for years and was still running when I sold it. I saw the diode trick in an article in the P-15 Driver newsletter that was available years ago.
  8. Looks like you're in good shape for cruising this summer.
  9. Merry Christmas to all and may you have a Happy New Year!
  10. Is the pressure relief hole in the bottom of the reservoir clear? If that's plugged one or more of the wheel cylinders may not release.
  11. I was working on the brakes on a 1931 Chrysler CM6 last spring. We honed the original master cylinder and put in a kit. We still need to pull the drums to check wheel cylinders and drums.
  12. I always use A Testors paint pen. It's a felt pen with enamel paint in it. They are sold at most hobby stores. Just fill in where you want paint and have a Q-tip or rag with solvent on it to clean up the edges.
  13. The overdrive on the 48 coupe used to give me an average 21.7 mpg.
  14. Mary and I plan on being there from Tuesday to Saturday. Looks like some nice tours. JohnS
  15. Go to the resources at the top of this page and open reference info on the drop down menu. There is a list of bulb numbers.
