    Need help identifying which brakes on a 1959 Dodge Coronet - 3 platform type brakes or standard brakes???

    Did not know that. Probably better for even braking but sure makes brake work more complicated and expensive....haha.

    Need help identifying which brakes on a 1959 Dodge Coronet - 3 platform type brakes or standard brakes???

    Yeah these brakes are complicated with 2 wheel cylinders per side. Very similar setup to my 1958 Plymouth.

    Need help identifying which brakes on a 1959 Dodge Coronet - 3 platform type brakes or standard brakes???

    Thanks. In the manual and on RockAuto they list 2 different set of wheel cylinders based on 3 platform type brakes vs standard brakes. See picture from the FSM below. Based on those pictures from the FSM, I was thinking they were the 3 platform type brakes. Thanks!!

    Need help identifying which brakes on a 1959 Dodge Coronet - 3 platform type brakes or standard brakes???

    I pulled a front and rear wheel and removed the drum on my 1959 Dodge Coronet. I was expecting it to be easy to identify but I'm just not positive. I think it's the 3 platform type brakes but wanted to confirm with the experts here. I'm also curious where the best place is to buy brake shoes...

    Question about a stuck 326 Dodge engine

    Got the heads pulled today. Cylinders look better than expected. Don't see any major scoring, rust or ring ridge. Still could not get the engine to turn over. Valves look a little rusty.

    Question about a stuck 326 Dodge engine

    Was able to pull the intake, distributor etc today. Tomorrow will pull the heads. Looks pretty gummy in the engine...especially the exhaust cross over. Definitely best I'm pulling the engine.

    Car lifts

    I have four post lifts, the mid rise Maxx Jaxx 2 post lift and a midrise scissor lift. Each has it's pluses and minuses. The 4 post takes very little set up but without a bridge jack it's harder to work on brakes/suspension etc. The mid rise scissor lift is nice but you can't do anything to...

    Thanks for the comments. I'm hoping to find time this week to take apart the original engine and just see how bad it is. I will post pics once I do. Thanks.

    Question about a stuck 326 Dodge engine

    Another member here offered me a good long block engine so planning on dropping that in for now rather than rebuild the current engine. I may rebuild the original engine at a later date. Someone on another forum said I should install a 383 and torqueflight. Is the 383 a drop in replacement? I...

    58 plymouth

    So true. I never knew about the 58 Plymouth until I saw the movie. Then I was on a mission to get all 3 cars from the movie: 58 Plymouth, 67 Camaro and 68 Charger. That movie turned out to be expensive !!!

    Bastardized 1959 "Coronet" build

    I agree...really enjoy seeing the progress on this car. I was so inspired I had to go out and buy a 1959 Dodge Coronet....didn't need another project but those pictures of wetskier2000's car were so cool I could not help myself....I knew I needed one also!!!!

    Question about a stuck 326 Dodge engine

    I think the transmission bellhousing has to come with it. I thought these engines/transmissions had a hidden bell housing bolt on the inside which was really tough to get too.
