  1. They turn clockwise (I guess that's to the right) to loosen when facing them.
  2. Sorry, I made a typo in the original message. The wheel fasteners on the LH side are left hand thread. They may be either studs in the drum with nuts or, most likely, 'cap screw'type with threaded drums. Either type turns clockwise to loosen (opposite to "normal" nuts). There should be an L stamped in the end of each stud, or a raised L on each cap screw. Be sure to check. Quite often RH drums (right hand thread) have been used on the LH side.
  3. As a Canadian model your Crusader is probably worth more in Canada than the US. Peter's comment about price is probably valid here also, but I find many US buyers are wary of the engine because of its 3.375" bore and lack of pistons and rings availability in the US. However, engine can be bored to 3.4375 and US Desoto/Chrysler pistons used.
  4. Is your Crusader a US model?
  5. Larry: Your Canadian Dodge Coronet has the 25" engine with a 3.375 stock bore. All Canadian Dodges and Plymouths from 1937 (I think) used the big block with 3.375" bore until the end of the L-heads. All DeSoto and Chrysler used same block with 3.4375 bore. I don't know the stroke for the Coronet offhand, but I think displacement should be about the same as the US model with 3.25 bore.
  6. I have just picked up a vehicle that is either a US Plymouth or Dodge - probably a '41. Serial is 3123790. Body is Briggs #ALA-310-1864. No badges; no grille; no engine/trans; no steering box, column, shifter or wheel. What is present is first class condition and worth restoration. Can anyone identify? Thanks
