I've already separated the drums from the hubs, then I can just slip the drums on and off. .
I believe you'll find that once everything is bolted on & snugged up it'll take a puller to get the drums off again.

Mopar 1, scroll up in this thread, you will see that I have pressed out the swaged studs and replaced them so that the original drums will now float on the original tapered axle hub. I would need a puller to remove the hub, but the drums are now floating like a newer car.

58coupe, I have never had a vehicle with the Mopar electronic ignition, but I've read that they don't perform well at mid-range RPM. I have no personal experience here, but I got the '74 distributor for free and I've converted to HEI for about $100.

Finished rebuilding my AX15 tonight to the point that it's full of oil and ready for install.

Stopped by my dad's shop today, he's starting to re-assemble the 318. Cam and crank are in.

The 318 short block is together with new cam, rod and main bearings. Everything rolls over very nicely, oil pan and heads next.

I've been working on the transmission mount and shifter for the wagon by mocking them up in my 1960 Plymouth sedan. Here is the slightly modified mount that will accept the 5 speed. I had to turn the mounting plate 180 degrees and notch it for a rib in the 5 speed. I have this exact setup in the sedan now and it is a much better setup than what I had before.

I also found and installed a shifter from a Dodge Dakota and it fits the car perfectly without modification, position and comfort for the driver is perfect. I was previously using a shifter out of a Jeep and I had to bend the shifter significantly to clear the dash and seat, but position was ok. I also didn't care for the joint in the Jeep stick shift, it's just an interference fit square socket and as I drove the car the shifter kept working itself apart. The Dakota stick is threaded together and won't have that problem, I just don't care for the plastic shift knob from the 90s.

Heads are on the 318, down to just the intake, carb, distributor and fuel pump.
