The Jalopy Journal
I don’t know for sure. It’s tricky because they made so many changes even within the same model year. It’s possible but you would probably have to...
I remember.....my 56 has the same problem with less than 250 miles on a rebuild.
Does anyone know of a place to get pre-made spark plug wire sets for old hemis? I ordered a set from one supplier but they turned out to be a...
Well.....my priority for today was to get the shop more organized and get stuff off the floor and pallets and get it put up on the shelves. While...
Not much....been working on the 56 Cadillac the past couple days. It may be the end of January before I get back to that project. Happy new year
If the hemi doesn’t work I have a backup plan
What’s the plan for it?
I have one but my hand has worked fine for radiators for over 40 years. Of course you have to use a little common sense when you use your hand to...
I’ve encountered this problem a lot. Most of the time it ends up being a clogged radiator. Easy test.....once warmed up, shut it off and feel the...
Man.....it sucks being away from home so much. I’m finding it tough not to order a bunch of parts to get this project moving. I need to hold off...
That’s a nice project but not really what I’m going for on this one. That’s more of a street rod type car.
Thanks....hopefully more to come. I have a small pile of parts waiting for me when I get back home on the 29th. Can’t wait to hear it run
Seems like most of the work is going into this motor. Once I know it will run I’ll then need a fuel pump (missing), rebuild or replace the water...
Ordered some plug wires.....another thing crossed off the list.
I just needed tuneup parts.....not a distributor
I don’t know how we got on this distributor discussion but it has nothing to do with my project.
Me too.....just not enough time
Has anyone else noticed that Mopar and Cadillac V8 motors of this era have the same motor mount attachment design on the blocks?
If this hemi...
Picked up a starter today......the same guy has a 4bbl intake for it.
I bought a kit from falcon for a 365. Decent quality and name brand parts.
I have a chassis that came from a 37 Ford Coupe that was hot rodded back in the 70s. I did a frame swap for the guy who drove the car in high...
Thanks for the info.
I have two of these to put on the front. Just need to find two for the rear. These are on a 37 Ford frame I have.
That’s the good side...lol. It has a rust spot at the bottom of the cowl and a dent in the roof from a tree. But it’s a pretty solid body. The...
Ordered a tuneup kit today.....another thing checked off the list. Still need to find a starter and order some plug wires.
