The last time I changed my oil I noticed the gasket to the oil drain plug in my '48 Chrysler flathead strait six looked a bit worn. I am guessing this a generic size that I can get at an auto parts store? If so, what size/ type should I find?
Hi Antique folks, I need a complete exhaust system for my 1937 Plymouth. Does anyone know where you can still buy them? If not available anyplace, is there a drawing someplace that could be used to fabricate a system? How about a system from a newer vehicle that might be close, and could be modified? Appreciate any help. Thanks. Willard Crawford
Hi Mopar folks, I recently bought a new clutch throw-out bearing for my 1937 Plymouth, but I can't figure out how to replace the old bearing. How is the bearing attached to the bearing-holder, or whatever it's called? Is the bearing heated to expand the old bearing? If so, what temperature should it be heated to, in order to remove it? Also, what temperature should the new bearing be heated to without ruining it? Thanks for your help. Willard Crawford
I'm restoring a 1937 Plymouth, and have the rebuilt engine bolted back in place. Since this was a complete "body-off" restoration, all of the electrical equipment has been removed, and now I need to know the bare minimum required to just start the engine. The distributor is in place, as is the starter, generator, and spark plug wires. Besides the battery, what else do I need to start the engine? Thanks for your help. Willard Crawford email@example.com
