  1. That raised marble originally only came on one side, I can't recall which. It has/had a silver reflective coating on the inside.
  2. My 30U has insert bearings, I've got several spare engines and all of them are also inserts.
  3. You are correct! It's been a while since I pulled a mopar 6. I must have been thinking of how I did the Buick. I think I have pulled a bell housing to engine bolt and found one a little longer and used it with a generator bolt.
  4. I usually use a starter bolt and a generator bolt.
  5. If it's catastrophic I'm parting out an '85 D30 6.2L with 74k miles in Des Moines, Iowa.
  6. I wanted to go deck over but thought the approach incline might be a little too much for lower cars. I ended up ordering drive-over fenders and the extra wide deck option. The '56 was about an inch away from scrapping the exhaust tips. I don't think wide low cars would do well driving over the fenders though.
  7. Must be a Kansas thing, here's the "Dodge" I bought last Friday https://wichita.craigslist.org/cto/d/1954-dodge-plaza/6301322679.html
  8. I'd have to disagree, the biggest expense is that you've got the ability to haul stuff home that you'd normally walk away from because you don't want to mess with renting a trailer and going back for it......
  9. $6k to buy it or that's what he's willing to pay someone to endure the shame of hauling it to the crusher after dark?
  10. I'm interested, would you crate and ship to 50320 Des Moines Iowa?
  11. I've got several, I'll dig them out and take some pictures.
  12. Well when you're out gently rubbing carnaube body lotion on everywhere with the 85-90wt gear lube scent crossed with slight essences of gasoline in the background with some good tunes on the radio, and then slowly teasing the wax off with a 100% cotton terry cloth towel folded in fourths, it'd be awkward if it didn't have a female name......
  13. It's 6 or 16 hours out of the way depending on if I go the southern route or not, weather dependant. I usually make people a great deal but at 7mpgs you might be cheaper to fastenall it. Furthest planned south destination is Turlock.
  14. We have the derelict, 57 3/4 ton 4x4 IH we drug out of a pasture a couple years ago, still have brakes to do before it's road ready. A neighbor gave me the Buick after 20 years of pestering him about it. Brush painted in the 70s, and a 51 super engine was rebuilt and dropped in it then and never started. His grandfather blew the car's 2nd engine in 1954 and it was parked till the 70s then my neighbor started rewiring the car with all #8 green wire and when he got to the dash he had a huge bundle of green wires. He got slightly confused and back in the shed it went till I pulled it out two years ago. Re-rewired it, pulled the engine apart for fresh gaskets and fresh assembly lube and I've been driving it since.
  15. Leaving in just over a week, only have a couple axles and a ton of sailboat fuel to haul out at the moment. I'd bring Mike back some blondes but I can't tolerate all complaining about certain female anatomies hurting from the "rough" ride. Dont understand women, The guy that sold it to me said at stoplights it rides like a Cadillac ......
  16. I probably could have made that a little clearer, I was wondering what the original poster's overdrive was out of, I've got a stack of them and don't really want to dig into it if his out of something I know I don't have.
  17. Are you going to eBay them? I might be interested in a spare.
  18. Maybe Dodge is different? Here's one on my 40 Plymouth
  19. They're 1940s steering column shift linkage mounts. They go at the top of the column right behind the steering wheel.
  20. I've been starting my 1955 230 engine in my 1940 Plymouth with it's original starter for 5 or 6 years without an issue.
  21. I'd be interested in some pictures of the rust, there's a couple of these in a yard out here that always capture my attention.
