  1. I would recommend removing coil from engine . Same set up on my truck lead to it overheating and opening on thermal protection then resetting --repeat . I moved in to cab fire wall . Tom
  2. Make sense, with two wire plug ,assume it is one filament bulb?
  3. Does this look similar , mine from 31 truck . If so I'll get you pic from it after it was cleaned up . When rain stops . Tom
  4. What was the brand of side view mirrors used . I believe they where 5 " and show a 1/4" stem and nut attachment from center . E-bay has a trio of old truck mirrors up know . Most have bad mirroring .
  5. If you could find the white protector sheeting they put on new cars when they ship them . You can just put local to that window , I think it is removed with heat gun at dealership . If not keep vents of heating system open and it will exchange air as you go down the road .
  6. Sounds like Carb or timing . See these pdfs. leaning more to timing , mine did same with slight low reading till I adjust . Even though points set . Vacuum takes all wear and lash out of setting . Press - Vacu test4.pdf Press - Vacu test5.pdf
  7. Just check on your 84 to 81 to 80 . Major construction start on North bound 81 this week and are switching to southbound when done . They said intense for next 4 weeks . I would use 84 to 380 (by-passing 81) to 80 . Looks bad on map but is total open road . I use when going to New England. Just 15 miles west of 80 x 81 split speed goes up to 70 MPH . I live a stone throw from that split ,If needed . Tom
  8. I total agree !!
  9. Great to see . You always do it well !
  10. Love that book 30DodogePanel . Can you send me a zoom shoot of that back and any front pics you have of UF-10's . I some what agree as Graham certainly could have changed thing up especially on special order or lesser made units . But I attached a copy from the DB Master Parts catalog . It states Twilight used after 8002296 . The Guide and C.M.Hall must both been considered depress beam dual filament type . DB MAster.pdf
  11. Yeah' think early ones were made by Depress or called Depressed headlight .
  12. My guess is late '30 . The UT engine makes it same as Ply U spec wise . Also I believe Sn in wrong should be seven digits . The easiest way to date is look at the casting date of engine ,driver side under starter, was build a month or two later . Type headlights do not look like Guide Twilights they changed to in '31. Yes can still get build cards . Got mine last year .
  13. I used tin snips ,was not the best . But dress able after cleaned out . Leave water in to top if cut any other way , to displace vapors .
  14. Be careful with gravels and such as my Dodge had two baffles and the pickup soldered to inside . Remove tank to be sure top is not rusted . Moisture tends to accumulate and eat the top first . I cleaned with shaper then Evapo Rust but since top was perforated cut open and used electrolysis .Then finished with Naval Jelly . Hard part was finding a weld shop willing to weld top back on . Did not coat as that what was done 20 years ago, and started falling loose and rusting behind . Know just keep it full in Winter .
  15. MAy try Dodge Brothers Web site also has general info posted . Attached is some examples of the 1914 to 1927 Mechanics Manual .also a private web site Plymouth the First Decades has a wealth of info .MEC Man.pdf
