    Does anybody know which years are interchangeable for windshield wiper pivots? I'm looking for some for my 51 Plymouth.

    Beste Kustoms--is that chopped just a little bit or is that the camera angle?

    Thanks,
    Joe

    daddiojoe,
    are yours just pitted up and nasty looking or are you missing them altogether?
    mine were pitted and peeling, I just kept grinding and sanding on them till the pitts were gone then polished the base metal.
    they now look great.

    Missing completely. Thanks for the tip though, Jeff.
     
  19. I may have some for a 51 dodge in storage and think there's still a set on the 50 dodge shell out back. I'll have a look for them if you can find someone that'll confirm they fit !

    Take a look at post #452 on this thread it has links to the article I wrote about a 318/904 swap in a '51 Plymouth. Driving it 10 years now, a great setup.

    tnx proartgay, really helpful article.

    I was wondering, is the engine space of a Plymouth the same as a Dodge? (also the width of the rear axle?)
    - are those early a-body exhaust manifolds?

    I might have some more stupid questions later, but sometimes it's better to be sure then learning it the hard way.
