Picked up a  instrument panel glass in a Mopar box today with part # 694932 on it. Trying to figure out what it fits. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance

Thanks Tod for the inf0.  New fuel pump , the glass bowl is always full. I did go and buy a new coil just today.  I had a tractor that acted the same way and it was the coil. I just didn't think about it because I haven't had this problem since I haven't had a car in the 40s or 50s for such a long time. I did reroute  a new fuel line and put fuel wrap 400 degree tape on the line and came up mid way on the air cleaner and back into the carb. The car has been running for about a 1/2 hour now.  Just up and down my country road. I don't know what it is going to do once I get up to speed on the paved road. Will find out tonight.  Then I will check the electrical. Thanks for your help.  Car is showing 37900 miles on it. Looks like new.

Might want to check the ignition system too: I had a car that acted like that once and spent untold time looking at the fuel system only to eventually find that the coil had a problem (probably a broken internal wire) and would stop working when it got hot.

On the fuel side: If you put a pressure gauge on the outlet side of the fuel pump (will have to rework the plumbing to "T" it in) then you can confirm or deny a fuel delivery problem when hot.

I bought this car 2 months ago. New fuel pump , old style, all new brake lines and shoes and cylinders. Stops good.  Maiden voyage to go to the DMV.  It quits running after 5 miles doing 40mph.  Temperature is 160.  I don't know what is normal for this 6 cyl engine.  You have to wait for it to get back to 100 degrees before it starts back up and goes another 4 or 5miles. I haven't driven it in the city yet. I'm in the country.  Is it vapor lock. How do I fix it.  I removed gas cap and no difference. I also installed a fuel filter in line under the frame.  The fuel pump also has a screen in it. Is it too much restriction. Also the car originally had a dual action fuel pump which wasn't working right, so I went to the older style single with a glass bowl. Anyone have any other suggestions so I can have a no worry drive. Thanks

I don´t have a lokal recommandation, logically, but these have fine old fashioned tires:

There are other brands, but I can´t remember them at this moment.

Having difficulty finding a 6.40-15; 162 mm width tire. Two tire stores I have visited say they cannot find one. Anyone know of a vendor to contact?

Thanks todfitch, with your suspension i looked closer and saw the igs under the corrosion. So i now believe it's an autolite igs 4003-1. Looks like i can get parts locally.

Thanks again!

Well if you think the p-18 would be the same, I could take pictures of mine which is up in the air right now doing all the brakes and lines. 
I could send you what my linkage and spring is attached to .  The car was undercoated and everything is greasy. But I think the pictures would come out ok.
