The guys in the big brown truck just dropped off my restored running boards from Mr. Acuff.
I could not be any more pleased with the craftsmanship from him!

Never found the chassis number on my car.
Rumor has it they will be on the left upper frame rail near the shock.
Decal is on the left side below the thief proof number and just about inline with the steering column on left hand drive.

Try the usual Max Merritt or Kanters.
I like Max Merrits web site a little better...

Welcome !

There is a insulator block(looks like a 1/4" thick gasket) that is between the engine
and fuel pump that is required along with insulating bushings that go around the mounting bolts.The bushings look like they would be made of a thick cardboard tube. That might be why your not matching up.The bolts will be drilled for safety wire if you found them. Someone on here I'm sure will have pics.

Would you also include these items when you put your car in the registry..your engine Serial # (located in the front left of the engine just below the head.)
And the thief proof # Located on the firewall passenger side.

And the model # on the decal located on the drivers side firewall about 12" above the starter...(if its still there)
Thanks,

I had the same questions when re-wiring my 38 6.
Then I read the owner's manual and all became clear !
There is a owners manual for 37 on this site in the
"Literature and manuals " section.
I contains the info on the "Passing Beam" and a wiring diagram.

Steve,
If you have a 12 volt timing light you can use it on a 6 volt system. Just connect the battery leads for the timing light to a 12 volt source, I use a jumper pack . A spare 12 volt battery would work also.
The shop manual will tell when valves should be adjusted,
Manual says every 2000 miles on my 38.
That engine should be every bit as quiet as the Desoto .

This is the # for a illuminated 12 volt switch NAPA HC6144.
This style switch is also available in 6 volt.
They show several other types if you can get a look at their parts book.

Check your local NAPA .
They have the under dash style in 6 & 12 volt.
I just bought the 12 volt for $18.00
