  1. I used an allen screw with a diameter the same as the pin and a shoulder that was the length of the pin. I put a locknut on the the screw , I think it was 10-32. I got this at a local hardware.
  2. I had a fuel pump pin fall out years ago. I went to a hardware and found an allen head screw with a shoulder a little longer than the pin and a diameter the same as the pin. I installed it with washers and a locknut and never had the problem again.
  3. The diode doesn't affect the clocks operation, it just keeps the points from arcing
  4. I soldered a diode across the points to keep them from arcing. I had seen this in an article years ago in the P-15 Driver.
  5. I used Amsoil synthetic motorcycle oil in my R 10 overdrive. I can't remember what weight it was . I drove it that way for 5 years, it shifted easily and was quiet.
  6. Happy New Year , Frank
  7. Merry Christmas to all the Plymouth people
  8. I still have the Delta 12 volt I built and used on my 65 dart in the 70s. I put it on my Barracuda a few years ago and it still worked.
  9. Call Waldron Antique exhaust in Centerville Michigan {269} 467-7185. They have exhausts from original patterns and should be able to answer your questions.
  10. Call Moore's Auto Parts in Rapid City SD and see if they have one. I don't have their number but it should be easy to find.
  11. Hershey is always fun. That was a good score.
  12. Looking over that hood brings back memories of driving my 33 coupe years ago. Thanks.
  13. Check out the tech tips on this forum, they are listed in the header at the top of the page. There is a lot of good information there.
  14. That was my 65 Barracuda, I had bought it just before the meet and it wasn't running very well. I wish I had driven the 48 coupe.
  15. Greg, Your car always looks good.
  16. I ran one wire back to the light switch for power and it worked just fine.
  17. Wish I'd seen that years ago when I ended up taking mine to a repair shop.
  18. I used a piece of small brass pipe cut to length and beveled the ends.
  19. Herb Ellinger who wrote the book was one of the teachers for automotive engineering when I went to Western Michigan University.
  20. You need to make some guide bolts for installing the trans. Find two bolts the same thread as the bell housing with the unthreaded portion about 5 inches. Cut off the head and cut a slot in the end. Screw these into the bellhousing top holes then slide the transmission in on them. Use a screwdriver in the slots to remove the guide bolts.
  21. I had good luck with flare fittings at a local AutoZone.
  22. Waldron exhaust in southern Michigan makes pipes to the original patterns. I put their exhausts on both my 48 convertible and 48 coupe.
