  1. the car has been running rich. I have looked at the plugs and they are full of carbon. im not sure where to start on the carburetor. Its a Stromberg carb. its not running full time yet, its close. Im not currently running a lead additive in the fuel. please help
  2. I have a 1938 dodge brothers d8. this is my first "pre war" car. I have a bunch of the manuals for the vehicle. I was using the information in the manual for my oil. I don't have a filter so I have been using the heavy oil because I thought the new oil would ruin the parts inside the motor.it does eat oil, its not driving yet . its almost done so after reading your information I should go to modern oil and add a fuel additive. I appreciate the info. might of just saved my engine.
  3. I have a dodge brothers dodge d8 sedan . I have all the moldings but the drivers side hood molding. I cant find it anywhere.

    I bought the car from a car show, it needed help. bought for 2000. I have been working on it four years now. the car is all steel. I found a guy on ebay that makes body parts for 1937 and 38 dodge. the rockers were replaced both sides and the dog legs both sides. the pan under the trunk was also made a by real craftsman. the car was taken down to the bare metal ,epoxy primer and now ready to paint. new wiring harness with fuse box. generator changed for a alternator. 12 volts now. keeping everything as stock as possible .
