General Discussion / Re: Introducing myself and the PB
« Last post by pb rookie on Yesterday at 02:27:56 PM »
I removed the head over the holidays and it didn't take much to get the couple valves to co operate,

BTW.. it took less tapping to get the valve that had been soaking with 50-50 Acetone and trans fluid
then it did for the valve that had been soaking in a 50-50 mixture of kerosene and trans fluid.

I'm sure glad that went the route of head removal as a mouse had taken up residence
some years ago and had left number one cylinder two thirds full of several years supply of food.

I did discover something else when I removed the head and I'll be starting a new post in the tech
section regarding that.

Cheers,

Yes absolutely it could've been a remote start switch,

If this helps, it appears to have two ceramic halves on the back side with ARK LES
embossed above the screws for attaching the wires and it has HEAVY DUTY embossed
below.

Restored Rusty Relics is having their annual hundreds-of-cars show on May 19, in Paramus, New Jersey. It is a very Plymouth-friendly show — we’re there in outsized proportion, and last year the plaque featured a Plymouth.

My guess would be that it was a remote start button .

I think that is on all posts now. Gives a person a button to press if they become upset with your posting for some reason. I'm not a moderator here so I don't know exactly what happens if the button is pressed. But with the traffic on this forum and the lack, so far, of animosity displayed by anyone here, it would surprise me if the "report this post" button has been used much.

I have no idea. I'm pretty sure my starter is designed to 6 V and it seems fine. You can always turn off your lights and radio during the jump, but the fuel gauge may get fried. It's the only really sensitive thing on these old cars.

Go.. Bumper jacks were a very common item stating in the 1940's through the 1960's, with the advent of tubeless tires, flat tires became a thing of the past.
The bumper type jacks are very safe if used per the directions, which include blocking the wheels and being on flat ground.
Never had a problem with damage to a bumper if the jack is used per the instructions.. Of course it is best to slightly loosen the lug nuts before jacking the car up. Wm.

I just noted that a notation to "report this post" and remove, has recently been added to my recent postings to this topic.. What is going on, did I step on someones toes?... Wm.

Great advice, thanks to both of you.
39 brought up an interesting point. How bad is it to jump a 6 V car with a 12 V battery ????
