The dash controls on the Desoto have more then enough space for 3 cables.  Heat, Def and Temp, are all original knobs.  So I will reuse these appropriately.

Oh you know I will be documenting the heck out of it.  If my trials and tribulations can help  even one  rodder out there, then it's worth all the extra time to post up the info and pics.

Well today I swapped around my cars...Wagon going into storage...Fernando coming home to be worked on this winter.
Was all excited that this year I could actually start, and then drive the car up on the trailer.  Put a battery in it, hooked up the gas can, primmed the carb...AND...nothing.  Car would run on the gas dumped down the carb, but it seemed like the fuel pump is not priming.  Carb is also leaking badly across the mainshaft.
So I removed the line from the gas can, blew down the fuel line and primed the fuel pump, and filter.  Tried it again and still nothing.  Drained my battery repeatedly trying to start the car. 
The car ran fine this spring when I moved it into storage.  Same fuel pump, fuel was treated with stabilizer.  This fuel pump is of unknown age and condition...but like I said it was working fine earlier this year when I first fired the car.
Guess I'll pull it and see what's going on.  I dug through teh archives and have seen a few posts on fuel pumps coming loose from the diaphram, or pin onthe arm coming loose.

And finally a video of the car running...with sound this time.  Sorry about the darkness...have the back drums apart trying to fix some problems, so can't back the car outside.

It's a bit tough to snap the arm tight into place, but the use of so large channel lock pliers, and some finesse will pop everything into place.
