Hey Dave,
I do appreciate all the work on saving all this information. Not many show up, but I do check daily to make sure people know we are still available for comment. Again, thanks.

Thanks. Sorry for my VERY late reply. Hope you had a merry Christmas and are having a good new year.

Have a bit of work to go, though.  She's in the shop now, about to get the stubframe straightened out from a wreck in her previous life, plus a bunch of suspension work.  And a transmission rebuild.  And I'm finally going to install the new carpet and seat covers I bought before I started this thread...

Hope y'all are doing well,

I have for sale a pair of heads off of a 1956 Dodge 270 Red Ram engine.  The heads had no problem but had problems with the lower end of engine.  If interested you can call Dennis at 573-439-5744.  I am in NE Missouri about 25 miles from Hannibal MO. Thanks for looking.  $150.00

hi all, just put new brakes on my 56 Dodge Custom Royal.  I can't find in my Chiltons manual what to torque the chase nuts.  Can anyone help me out.   Thanks, Dennis

Kind of a hard thing to know for sure, but, there are ways to verify the information by checking things out yourself. Take a stiff wire, like a coat hanger or slightly heavier and bend a loop in one end to attach to a wheel stud, then bend the wire to the inside of the rim so you have the wheel angle and tire height, the other end of the loop would be the outside outermost edge of the tire tread. Put this on the stud and you can turn the wheels left and right and rotate the hub to make sure you have clearance inside the wheel well and not hit.
With that, if the rims are new and could be returned for an offset instead of adding spacers, it will keep the tire and rim within the fender edge, which would be a concern. Stock rims were either 5 or six inches to begin with, one extra inch shouldn't be too much of an issue, 2 inches might be tight, but hope this method of checking the clearance helps.

Hi all,  I just bought a 56 Dodge Custom Royal and just got aftermarket rims for it.  They are 7"wide and they look like they will work on the back but I think they are to wide for the front.  What is the widest rims a man can use on the front with no problems.  Can a person buy spacers and make them work.  If so what thickness of spacers would I need.  Thanks
