General Discussion / Re: Gas tank mounting
« on: May 23, 2011, 01:01:49 PM »
If I remember correctly when I put in my tank the frame you are referring to had a bracket mount that was tapered to accommodate the upper curvature of the tank while also accommodating the lower mounting straps.  I believe I used strips of rubber material top and bottom to cushion the tank.  I used the original tank so if you are using a fabricated tank your mounting might be different.

Glenn,

Your lights need to be wired in parallel.  If you are adding lights and the voltage drops then you may be wiring them in series.  Also are the turn lights isolated from the other lights in the car including the brake lamp ckt. l What is that device between pin P on the Flasher and ground.  Is that a lamp or a resister ???

PS… My car is wired the same as your diagram.

See my diagram:

Hi Glen Does your wiring diagram look similar to this !

The polarity of the flasher needs to be maintained for positive ground system.  So everything connected to positive in the diagram needs to go to ground and ground needs to connect to positive.

Reverse the polarity.   Try reversing the connections at X & L

The thing to remember is it sure beats a horse & wagon.

And you don't have to feed it or clean up after it eats.

Rich,

Off the top of my head I am thinking that the 28 & 29 Plymouths used the 2 contacts and the New style 30 U and above used the 3 contacts which had an accessory position.  No real facts here, just my thinking.

Try this link to a brake adjustment for a P15 Plymouth.  Same principle as the earlier Plymouths.

Kim,

I have driven long distances (30 to 40 miles each way) in 90+ degree temperatures without any over heating issues.  I was actually quite amazed at how well the thermal-siphon system works.  One of the few area’s of the car I haven’t had any issues with.

Thank you guys ! pedal does feel a little spongey and was coming all way up before depressing. Being it's right hand drive do I bleed further most wheel from master first ?

If all the air is out of the system the most likely cause for your problem is one or more miss aliened brake shoes.  I had a similar problem until I readjusted my brakes and gained almost half the pedal travel.   Also I used the AMMCO 1750 tool to align the shoes and still had to go back and redo the fine adjustment.

Not getting that much news up here.  Everyone is occupied with Egypt, Libya, and of course the constant bickering between democrats & republicans.

I hope everyone is OK.., ?

Thanks I appreciate the update but I was talking about the earthquake in New Zealand and the storm damage in Australia.   The forum members down under have been having their share of problems these days.

Here are pictures of a New Style 30U engine I picked up last year.  It was rebuilt as a spare for a PA.  It does have a 4 blade fan probably because the radiator real-estate started shrinking as the years moved forward.

Sorry, the motor is in Delaware and I am in Virginia so I can’t verify the grease fittings vs. oil caps.  Personally I wouldn’t be surprised seeing oil caps especially on the shaft bracket.
