  1. Freewheeling I believe is what it was called, I am just not familiar with this and have really not had to much time to research it, I do know on the dash of my car there is a lever you pull and it is supposed to do something with the transmission. however I have not pulled it and really don't know if it works at the moment. I removed the hand brake because after many tries of adjusting it, the rear brake shoes kept vibrating at 40+ mph causing a bad vibration sound and feel. so it got disconnected and I carry a chock block to block the car and I keep it in gear when parked so it stays still. I am talking with uptown Dodge about this transmission. if it will work, I will go that rout. he says its a 3 speed with OD. not sure if that means it has different gears as a 3 speed or if it has a 4th OD gear to shift into. I am waiting to find out.

    WHAT OIL GOES IN OIL BATH FILTER

    Thank you for all your help spinneyhill, you are always very helpful.
  3. 1st question: where is the hand brake? If on the back of the gearbox, does the o/d have it there too? HAND BRAKE IS ON TAIL OF TRANSMISSION; I REMOVED MINE DUE TO VIBRATION AND TAIL SHAFT BEARING NEEDING TO BE REPLACED. 1st observation: you will need a shorter drive shaft because the gearbox is longer. I CAN HAVE A DRIVE SHAFT BUILT LOCALLY WHEN I FIGURE OUT TRANSMISSION AND REAR END COMBO. 2nd observation: o/d transmissions often have a support at the rear. You might need one of those too. WHAT DO YOU MEAN SUPPORT AT REAR (CROSS MEMBER ON TRANSMISSION REAR?) 2nd question: do you have "floating power"? If so, how does that affect the gearbox mounting system? YES, HAS FLOATING POWER, I HAVE NEVER USED IT, HEARD IT SUCKS AND MAY RUIN OR CAUSE ACCIDENTS. 4th question: does it need a cable to engage and disengage it and if so, does it come with that? FLOATING POWER I AM TOLD MESSES UP DRIVING ABILITY AND CAUSES ACCIDENTS OR CAN AT LEAST. Edited 24 minutes ago by Spinneyhill (see edit history)
  4. can you post pictures of it? will this swap in with minimal modifications? (very interested)

    Upgrading a 230 engine and transmission

    I did not see anyone answer the question on how to upgrade the transmission to work with a 53 230 flat Head 6. I am looking for a similar item. would like to do all the upgrades to my 1933 Dodge that has a 53 230ci engine, but I need to get the transmission upgraded for speed on the freeway. may also change rear end and drive line also. any help appreciated.

  13. Found this REPLICA Dodge Radiator cap Mascot on the inter-web and drove one hour to grab it from the person who did not know what they had, lucky me. not sure if I should keep it or sell it. I have my original mascot for my 33 Dodge, this one seems to be for a 31-34 Dodge. anyone interested in making an offer on it or telling me more about it. I think its a replica.
  14. I am jumping down the current YOU TUBE rabbit hole with prohabition and 1920s-30s depression knowledge. and I am curious. WHAT WAS A DODGE BROTHERS car worth, what would status be if you had a 33 Dodge new / old used/off show room? was it something everyone could afford or something the rich could only have? lets talk about it, I am wondering what knowledge you have on this issue.?
