    I just joined this forum, I haven’t even introduce myself yet in the new members section, But I just bought my son a 1953 Dodge pilot house pick up and I was wondering if these water distribution tubes are still available?

    Do you have the 23 in or 25 in engine?  I have the 23in tubes.

    I've actually used this '38 as a template for some of my restoration...they put this one together the closest to factory.

    Not so sure about the turn signal and heater, but it had dual wipers, dual spare tires, with covers.

     

    I would be in heaven If I could fine that headlight knob with the the hi-beam indicator in red....

     

    I have never seen the vin tag below the oval. Also never seen the oval tag not having the LR. Beautiful truck. Looks like Vic's and Alex work and differently yours.

  4. I have come across with a lot of parts being different for 38. 

    Example,

    Part 758697 up to LR 1450

    Part 759000 after LR 1450.

    What was changed on the 38s?

    Above numbers are not accurate. Just using as an example.

    What I'm seeing that is different during the 38 model year.

    Door parts

    Frame parts

    Interior parts.

     

     

    Another mystery,

    what is a MC-RC sedan?

    I looked for a long time for an axel puller, couldn't find one. I modified an slide hammer and gently pulled it out.

    I put the axle nut back on with a large washer and used a finger type end with a slide hammer. Take the backing plate off and put an old drum on and hit the drum with a hammer.

  6. These engines were used in the heavy Dodge trucks in the early 50s and other applications. 49er has a few of these trucks. We sold him a 413 that I found of all places, CL in Sacramento CA.

  7. Chris' monster speedster rolled out after a long Montana winter. Powered by a 1100# 413" Chrysler Industrial six on a massive 133" wheelbase Studebaker President chassis, '33 DeSoto radiator shell, 7.50-20 tires (36.9" dia.), homemade body, and parts picked off the ranch. These rare MONSTER truck sixes produced 205 ft/lbs at 1600 RPM. Hopefully, he'll be driving it down to Bonneville this year. It's bigger than a full-size pickup, so it'll be easy to spot. #MoparMontana #MontanaDodgeBoys

    My front shocks seam to work fine, however they leak oil. Does anyone know where i can send them to be rebuilt? 1937 1.5 ton ME-31

    I was told by a customer that these don't need rebuilding. Only the shaft seal goes bad. Replace that and your good to go.

    The original engine has a cast date of Nov 16, 1960. It was one of the first batch of castings that were done with an incorrect casting number. The incorrect one was ground off and stamped with the correct number. The second batch of castings also had an error on two digits which were also ground off and restamped. The 3rd batch of castings finally got all 7 digits casted correctly.

    I'm aware of the original design engineers for the W project. What was your father's name? Was he assigned to the project after it was developed in '58 or part of the original team?

    BTW, the 400hp 409 you owned was one of just 742 produced in '65.

    The 65 09 400 were mostly installed in the lighter big cars. Very few found there way into a SS convertible.

    His name was Ben Montanbeau. He was a backup driver for NASCAR in the 50s until he smashed a Sheriffs car in Joplin MO when he was drunk. GM hired him as an engineer and a professional driver. He would bring these cars home and street race on 96, Woodward and Telegraph. He would take me and friends on these joy and professional rides. George and Zoro were at our house working on cars. They were my dads drinking buddies. LOL. I had a great childhood during these times.

    One of your recent trips ? Wow, you are very fortunate to be able to be able to travel and see this stuff. Never take it for granted Dave. 

     

    Thanks for sharing and be safe out there...

    Not my load. I was supposed to haul this load but the timing was not in our favor. This is one of our customers that lives in Southern CA and the load went to Chico CA. Couple of the trucks we sold to this customer. I did do these loads.
