  1. Just curious if there's any benefit of replacing my B&B carburetors on my 38 desoto with a pair of wa1 carbs?I have a set that are brand new The car is setup with an Edmunds dual carb intake.
  2. MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL THE ARCHEOLOGICAL JUNKIES ON THIS FORUM AND OF COURSE A HAPPY NEW YEAR REMEMBER THE BARNS ARE NOT ALL CLEANED OUT SO KEEP DIGGING MY FRIENDS STEVE
  3. Anybody put a disc brake conversion on your 38 DeSoto or something similar? If so was it worth the effort
  4. sounds fun until you break down;-) I drove a car home from the Carlisle swap meet and halfway home it starting to run erratic I was able to limp it home 2nd purchase a few years later- 25 miles into the trip the ignition module crapped out hence my hesitation
  5. Need to see a car in person before a purchase-too many wasted trips-thats why if you were closer I would be pursuing it Went to Boston to look at a 59 caddy-not quite as described, just got back from Long Island looking at a Hudson convertible - same deal
  6. If this car was closer to New York I would certainly be chasing it man-oh-man I love it
  7. Ok mechanical pump is on and works fine- electric is on a toggle if the other ever fails The only thing I think I need to do is put some kind of a tee so If I need the electric I can bypass the mechanical thanks for all the help
  8. Ill measure tomorrow do you have a trans you want to sell? Steve
  9. yup going to put the mechanical on tomorrow with an electric backup on a toggle
  10. The pump is by the tank
  11. OK fellas another dilemma When it rains it pours I replaced the electric 12 volt pump on my 38 desoto with a universal carter because the pump was too loud anyway, that pump lasted a day-so I put in another and that lasted the same-they are wired thru a relay-they have a filter on the inlet side of the pump-I also have a inline regulator installed-would running too low a pressure burn them out? I have it set on 2lbs or is it a china thing? the tank is new and it plastic so its not rust jamming the pump Thanks again for any insight
  12. Put the new cylinders on and all is good I cant believe I would have defective cylinders
  13. It was too short-I had this one welded and reinstalled on my car you are are good guy though the way you handled that sale Stev
