    Really?  Same year Chrysler product and the Dodge had the parking brake on the transmission and the DeSoto had them on the rear shoes/drums?  That surprises me.  Anyone know for sure?  DeSoto owners care to weigh in?  I don't have a DeSoto parts book to check numbers.  Not that I've had any luck verifying numbers in my Dodge parts book...
    I need to find a vintage Hollander catalog.

    The Chry and DeSoto with OD had e brake on the rear axle. Here is a picture of my 36 Desoto trans,

    The rear axle oil seal is leaking on my 1938 Dodge RC pickup. There is differential oil leaking past the seal.

    My question is, does the outer bearing get lub from the different oil or should it be greased like the front wheel bearings?

    Based on the parts catalog I have, there is an 'inner axel drive shaft oil washer' between the outer bearing and differential bearing adjuster. It's not called a seal. See item #18 in image. Is this to keep differential oil from the outer bearing?

     

    Looking for advise on how deep I have to go to repair the leak.

    Thanks in advance.

    I would like to chime in too.  Did the Widow get back in touch with you Dave?  

    I have not tried. I have been on the road. No clue what is going on. Stuff may still be there or all was scrapped. She lives in a gated community. I could sneak in but could get in trouble for trespassing. This was almost 3 years ago.

  5. Can you take a picture of the wheel? Just for my reference. Thanks for your help. I was talking about the grill with the fins. Have a customer that has a 38 for 40 plus years that he is putting together. Has a 38 Ply grill now.

    Did you use stainless brake lines? If so, almost impossible to seal. I had that problem when I did a 33 Ply back in the 80s.

    Talk to ya later. Chris said hi back at ya.

    Thanks

    For sure it was an option on all '36-'38 light duty trucks. I am not sure prior to 1936, and John is correct, grab a parts book.

     

     Look in the A pillar on the passenger side for a vacuum line from the carburetor follow it up in the roof, there would be a tee above the header panel in the roof.

    At least back to 33.

    3) Leaking brake lines all four corners

    4) Leaking expansion plug (freeze plug)

    5) Incorrect carb. kit

    6) Non-operational fuel gauge

    And still finding new ones every time I go out and test drive....the joy of our hobby!

    Hi Surf.

    I'm home for a month or 2. What do you need? Wheels? Was the engine wet tested? Gauges was rebuilt by Bobs in MI?

    Looking great.

    Dave.
