  1. Looking to buy a LARGE SCALE wiring diagram for a 1937 Desoto S3. Thanks
  2. Can the brake shoe adjusting cam on 1940's vintage Mopars be repaired? I have a couple that the adjusting bolt turns, but the cam does not.
  3. Enjoyed all the comments. Thanks. I decided to buy one repro bumper. It's definitely not as stout as the original, but I don't think that will be noticable once it's on the truck. After the truck is painted, I'll mount this bumper and see how it looks. If ok, I'll buy the second repro, if not, I get one of the originals rechromed.
  4. I think I may need to replace the fuel pump on a '38 Pontiac 6 cylinder. The original pump was single action, but the replacement I have is a duel diaphram. Can I use the new one as a fuel pump only? If so, do the ports on the vacuum section need to be plugged? Thanks.
  5. I'm working on fixing up a 1951 Chevy 1/2 ton. Don't want a show truck, just a good looking daily driver. I was going to have the original bumpers rechromed, but realized that I can buy new reproduction bumpers in less time for less money. Anyone have any recommendations? Are the repro bumpers good and sturdy and do they look original? Thanks
  6. Perfect. Thanks very much. That's all I need.
  7. Sorry, I meant 1946 Desoto.
  8. Can someone tell me a quick way to distinguish between the Custom and Deluxe models for the 1946 Chryslers? Thanks
  9. Did the 1948-1952 Chevy and GM 1/2 ton pickups have a paint code on them anywhere? Thanks
  10. I'll contact Davis Lock and Safe on Monday. I'm in south-central PA, but the hub and lock can easily be mailed for repair. Thanks guys.
  11. Bought a spare tire locking hub on eBay with no key. Figured my local locksmith could pick and re-key it. Turns out it has him stumped. I figured a 70+ year old lock would be easy, but guess not. Any recommendations?
  12. Starter for 1940 Dodge. Prefer one that is ready to go, rebuildable is ok. I checked with all the major sources. They only rebuild.
  13. Got my replacement control box today. When I took the old one off I just happened to look at the bottom. Little metal strap that carries the incoming current was burned out. Hooked up the new box and have light and the car starts. Man what a relief!
  14. Wires are heavy...at least #10.
