    Seat mystery

    Hi friends following a previous post regarding seats for a 53 dodge b4.i took the advice and purchased a Dodge Durango second seat. Which included two separate seats and a flip down console.After comparing the seat to the frame-the seat was about 9 inches shorter in width. So my question is-did anyone else use this seat?2. If so did you cut the seat from the bottom front mounting rail and spread it out width- wise to compensate for the additional width needed. After reading this previous posts -I’ve. not seen anything lately.. Thank you for reading.Anyfeed backseat is appreciated.
  2. Hi guys some time in the past, someone posted using a second seat Dodge Durango seat in a 1953 b4 . Well I bought a seat and the width is very close, but since they are mounted to the floor and tilt forward. How do I attach the seat unit to my b49 seat slider frame.? I thought of welding an angle on the front edge of the 53 seat slider frame, and then weld the durango seat mounting rod with floor tabs to it. My 2nd question is - is not the seat too high.? Thank you for the help.

  4. Believe me - when I say “I do appreciate all your help.I will email you direct- no need for site responses. Thank you
  5. Ty I tried to email rusty and got no reply - that’s why I posted here. Thanks for your help.
  6. Could any member email me the additional part list- of things to buy to install rusty kit on my 53 b4. I tried to email him direct- could not. Thanks in advance. bergyexp@gmail.com
  7. Using a 518 trans in my b4. Want a floor shift. Anybody use a junkyard floor shift and convert it to fit. ?? thanks to all
  8. The first one . Cartridge type.
  9. The original oil filter- not a spin on type. Maybe they had a different name .the filter that fits inside the filter housing. Thanks
  10. Hi guys I’m relocating my canister type oil filter on my 53 hemi.. did anyone ever relocate a canister type filter to an alternate location. Can I just buy hydraulic lines - make a bracket?
  11. Thank you all for your help. I like the way you all addressed this situation.
  12. For all the kits he sells - I can’t figure why others using this kit are not familiar with similar troubles. I can’t get this right on my 1953 b4.
  13. Hello , To everyone once again.Im still trying to get this to work. Now does anyone have a material list - showing the final components to buy. according to rusty. Hopes list = namely the calipers . Don’t know which one to buy. I’m using this on my b4 thanks in advance
  14. Hello , To everyone once again.Im still trying to reengineer Rusty Hopes brake conversion kit. When I addressed this situation-which was that the spindles were too short to properly install the cotter pin in the castle nut on the spindle.Ive finally decided to consult a machine shop on shortening the rotor hub and recutting the bearing cup to give me more spindle thread length. I’ve talked to other members using his kit and they have no issues-so I guess my B4 is an odd ball. If I follow thru on this endeavor I will post on the out come.If anyone has this situation on their pilot house trucks- let me know how they addressed this problem.Thanks
