The Jalopy Journal
I just moved the spring perch from the top to the bottom of the control arm. Lowered car several inches. Just cut the old rivets off and bolt to...
Did anyone attend the auction and know some of the prices the vehicles sold for? Particularly interested in what the 50 Merc sold for.
I have the Hobart 140 and I am very happy with it.
Nice looking ride! If you ever want the front end lower, relocating the spring perch to the bottom of the control arm drops it nicely.
Too many cry babies on here lately. Maybe you should have asked for pictures of a red car or something.
My wife had a spot as well for her daily, then she got a Corvette. Her daily now sits outside, but she still has her spot!
Car sat on a concrete driveway, never in the mud. Floors and frame are solid.
That is my brothers' car!

I have a 40 Plymouth with stock motor/tranny. It just started making a rattling/clanking noise coming from the clutch/tranny area. It makes the...
If you do cut a coil, post a pic of how it turns out.
I have a 40' Plymouth, and I read if you cut one coil off the front springs that should lower you 2 to 3 inches in the front and it will actually...
I ended up putting the Coker Classics G78 3 1/4 inch whitewalls on it. They look really good. Very happy that I went with the bias-ply, and I...
Got the brakes sorted out yesterday. Turned out that the new longer piston was blocking the little return hole in the master cylinder when at...
Appreciate all the help, should be able to figure it out with the information given. Won't get to work on it until Sunday though.
The master cylinder rebuild kit came with a new residual valve.
I can't go out and check the push rod length since the car isnt here, but I remember pushing the brake pedal have way or more before the brakes...
Thanks for the help so far guys. I'll have to check that when I get back this weekend to work on it.
I had a hell of a time finding a rebuild kit for the master that included the piston. The car is in a different city now, so I cant go check. I...
works fine when cold and cruising.
Only pressurizes after stopping.
Today I drove my 1940 Plymouth for the 1st time. All went well, except after a drive the brakes would pressurize and apply the brakes, and even...
