    Oil or Hydraulic Fluid

    What are you guys using in the presto-matic for fluid I tried tractor supply for Hydraulic Fluid with an ISO of 32 and nothing and 10 Weight Oil is non existing around here in Dairy Land
  2. First off, forgive me that I'm new to all this. I'm learning as I go. Had a bad clutch chatter in my '47 Plymouth and am replacing the rear main seals and clutch. I ordered a new clutch disc from Bernbaum but the new one has a deeper offset than my original and doesn't seat properly in the pressure plate. I looked on the forums and for other online images and haven't found another that looks similiar to the one that I have. I am wondering if I just need to order another pressure plate or find a different clutch. The clutch that came out is a 9 1/4. Also, I was wondering if anyone could tell me if there is any sort of plug or cap that is supposed to go on the transmission where it bolts up. I got a new seal and it has a hole around the opening and it seems to me like there should be, but again, I have zero experience and the manual doesn't show anything. Thanks! Dan
  3. Hi everyone, I'm a new guy on the old Dodges, so bear with me. Here' s the situation: My 74 year old father is looking to gain some speed/gear ratio on his old 48/49 1 Ton flatbed dually with the original (as near was we can tell) flathead six. He's a retired truck driver so the 4 speed crash box (Warner T9?) is fine other than he's out of gear & rpm at 45 or 50 mph. We live in SoCal and he wants to be able to drive to shows, etc. so there's a real need for another 10 mph or so. Since it's the 1 Ton and he wants to keep up original appearances, there's no real expectation of a taller rear being available - or am I wrong? He also wants to keep the flathead and a hydraulic clutch is not going to happen. What are the options from the experts? Are taller rear dif. ratios available for the 1 Ton rear axle? Are there sources for the old style "2 speed rear axles" still? I see from the factory literature that there were Clark 5 speeds avaliable that may have had OD in top gear. Can they be found or are they like hen's teeth now? A brownie box would be fine too but I'm aware of the lack of parts from my adventures with my oldish 60's Fords. How different is the flathead 6 trans mount from the later transmissions? Will anything later interface with the factory bell without adapters galore? I have a new level of appreciation for you Pilot House guys... After all the documentation I can find and have for my `67 Fords and `65 Jeep CJ5, this old truck is like sifting through a haystack looking for needles. Anyway, go easy on the assumptions about specific brand detail knowledge please. I've got the mechanical concepts and background down but I don't know jack for flathead era Dodges but I'm willing to learn to help my old man out. So what say you? Ideas? Options? Are am I just whistling dixie and dad's going to have to get used to being honked at on the fwy (again)? Thanks in advance!
  4. Hey guys, while chasing some old Jeep parts and checking on an ebay 5 speed from a `48 that we didn't grab, I had an epiphany about a long convoluted way to get a poor man's OD for running behind the original 230 in my old man's Pilothouse 1 Ton. So bear with me: He wants to keep the stick and the original rear end, he doesn't want to cut the floor more than necessary, and really wants to keep his "deep first" granny gear for crawling up out of his long, steep driveway (I'm not exaggerating either - couple hundred feet and varies between about 10% and 40% in grade). So the truck has a T9 in it that he's fine with other than the 1 Ton having too short a pumpkin but he doesn't want to change the rear. So, after much research, I hit on the fact that the T8/T9 were the forerunner to the T98 and the grandaddies of the still quite common T18/T19. So what if we put in a later truck 4 speed that we can "somewhat cheaply" adapt to a Dana 18 transfer case that will accept a Warn/Saturn PTO overdrive? Options abound for Dodge New Process 435's as well as Dodge & Ford T98/T18/T19. There are lots of options for the Tcase adaptation and the extra weight is really a non issue in a 1 Ton that's already heavy and always running an empty flatbed. It sounds like a winner IF I can fit one of these later transmissions into the bell of the old 230 without going too crazy. So here are my questions: 1. Does anyone have the specs for the input shaft and bell housing back pattern on these? I know on my Fords the bell's rear is pretty much identical up until they went integral and the variables are all input shaft length, diameter, and spline count. What's up with the old 230 Dodge? I can't seem to find any specifications on this kind of stuff on the web (shaft length, spline count, pilot bearing diameter, etc.). 2. Given the above, the next question (or maybe the real question) is how hard is it to adapt the later truck trannies? 3. How big are the differences for the tranny interface specs (drilling a few mount holes isn't scary but finding a correct or adaptable input shaft is the question) between the old Dodge and my Ford trannies? For instance, I've got a 4x4 T19 sitting out in AZ that we could make a great start with... So what say? Does anyone have either the answers or the raw data so I can find my own? I know you guys have got something! Share with me for the old man's sake! ;-)
  5. Were the Pilot house trucks offered with a Fluid Drive? Were these automatic?
