Tech- - Engine / 1958 Plymouth starter question
« on: March 16, 2015, 10:05:40 PM »
Well, it appears the setup is a 361 and the case and torque converter of a 318 A488 (TF 727 w/removable bellhousing), the bellhousing changed to a 350/361 and the original starter used. The things we used to do to make things run back then. Wouldn't mind having the Golden Commando dual 4bbl carb setup on that baby, but then again, a six pack beats it every time.

Yeah, just trying to figure out the issue for the guy now, identifying the transmission was kind of half the issue. Thanks.

Yeah, I saw that too with the 361, it was a year early for this car, trying to verify the year of the engine. I did some searching and did see 1956 was the 6 to 12 volt change, late on my part, so the little question remains, was there an early V8 starter that was different back then, prior to the reduction gear starters or are they swappable? The mini starters were mid/late 80s (at the earliest) but they always swap in the place of the reduction gear starters, he says there are differences and it won't work, so wondering the last year this non reduction gear starter was made.

OK guys, friend has a '58 Savoy with starter problems. Needs to replace it. It has a dual quad 361 and pushbutton trans (of course), and it turns out the mini starter doesn't fit/work. My question is, is the difference between the starters due to the age and the fact the starter is an old cast iron monster and six volt instead of 12 volt? Pretty sure there isn't a flywheel number of teeth that is different from the newer ones, anyone have any info to teach me?

THAT is a one off nice looking car! Who says a Gen II Hemi doesn't fit in an early Dart! Thanks for sharing.

And we haven't seen any pictures of the Diamond lately, either.

We even got over an inch of rain over the weekend, so good for here!

I think they make the car. Classic look, not too flashy, a good fit.

Yes, but we have gone backwards in such a bad way. In some countries, the government runs and controls everything, so the best way to survive is to do enough to get by, and not do anything extra because it will simply be taken away in order for the govmt to make everything "equal" for all, and control what advances and what doesn't. The other side is to allow the freedom to do as much as you want, but at the same time, be safe and be safe with everything around you, the more you do, the more you have, your rise is up to you, not the govmt telling you what you can and cannot do. From this point, our system has been harmed though the govmt "helping", whereas you are right, instead of those scientists having to go out and work to find the money, get donors and supporters, the govmt has decided to socially control everything by becoming the money, supporting what they want and, well, essentially doing what the Communists, Marxists, etc., do. Gotta get them on the dole, then they can control the agenda.

The thing is, there are too many variables which are not added into any predicting of the outcome that we cannot add because nobody has any control over them. Just like trying to predict an earthquake or solar flares, their impact has more to do with weather patterns than is accounted for. Pollution is one thing, I am totally against that, we do need to keep things clean, but to say plant food in the air is bad, well, that is total bunk. Not only do trees need CO2, the oceans need it, too. If the PPM (yeah, parts per million) were to rise too high, the ocean wave action combined with the salt and minerals in the water make calcium carbonate out of it, and shellfish need this in their diets to make shells. Don't pollute, and at the same time, don't try to take ocean temperatures near an underwater volcano (those things are warm), and yell the sky is warming. And the polar bear population? Almost double what it was in 1960 (as a matter of fact), so they aren't endangered at all. Recycling is a good thing, and if it doesn't get done, Mother Nature makes rust so she can do it herself, solar rays destroy other things (like the plastics, woods, fibers), and it all starts over.

I thought that was what I said. Although it is a warmer Pacific Ocean current thing, global warming impact couldn't be ruled out. I think it is bull. It's not something I want to argue about, Mother Nature is going to make it rain or not rain, so far weather isn't controlled by man, the sun itself controls most of it, as in solar flares and solar winds, and if there happens to be a 1000-1200year pattern, so be it. It's one of those things that can't be proven or disproven. One can't take 150 years of weather temps and patterns and predict the future of 4.5ish billion years of frozen blob and molten surface.

Just read an article saying the 1000-1200 year drought that got rid of the west coast Mayan Indians seems to be coming around again and we are looking at a 100 year drought, and in return, east of the Rockies is supposed to be wetter. Southwest used to be a tropical paradise. Hope it isn't true. At least the article said they don't think global warming is to blame, it is a natural pattern. Go figure.
